Best Safaris? Definitely Tanzania

Independent safari rating web site conducted an in-depth analysis of 3,061 reviews of safari tourists and acclaimed experts and concluded that both have voted Tanzania as the best safari country of Africa.

Over the past two years a distinctive SafariBookings taskforce searched for those who have been on safari and invited them to write a review. As a result, over 1,000 people from 53 nationalities wrote more than 2,300 user reviews.

To complement their user reviews, reputable guidebook authors working for Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Frommer’s, Bradt, and Footprint, teamed up in the Expert Panel and wrote 756 expert reviews.

The overall average rating of Tanzania in both the user and expert reviews is 4.8 out of 5 stars: the highest score of all eight major safari countries (which also includes Botswana, Kenya, Zambia, South Africa, Namibia, Uganda, and Zimbabwe).

Why is Tanzania the best place to visit on your safari adventure? Consider this:

  • Tanzania is one of the safest countries in which to do a safari, surpassing close competitors South Africa and Kenya by leaps and bounds.
  • It is the home of Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area, one of the most amazing backdrops in which to go on a safari in the world.
  • The ease in which you can access the national parks—only 1.5 hours drive from the main base city of Arusha to Tarangire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park (with Ngorongoro Crater being just another hour or so from there). For reference, to get to Kruger National park via vehicle from Johannesburg, South Africa is more than four hours, and to get to Maasai Mara National Reserve from Nairobi, Kenya will take about six hours.
  • Nowhere else can you see the Great Wildebeest Migration in all its glory during the entire year (besides September-October, when the bulk of wildebeests head to the northern tip of the park and cross the Mara River into Maasai Mara National Reserve).
  • The home of world-famous Zanzibar island, as well as the tallest free-standing mountain in the world (and the tallest in all of Africa), Kilimanjaro. Many of our guests add one or the other (sometimes both) onto their itinerary in addition to a safari.
  • Less competition! Because of the enormous size of our parks, you’ll generally see fewer tourists vying for position to get a good photo of the wildlife.
