Tanzania has some of the most phenomenal national parks for wildlife viewing on the planet. We have more than 18 National Parks in Tanzania with vast virgin wilderness hosting different wildlife species. You plan to summit the highest mountain in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro, or spend your time in the less-known park of Ruaha National Park south of Tanzania. 

Discover the best of Tanzania National Parks with luxury safari camps, plenty of wildlife to see, activities to engage with, people to interact with, and immersion in nature fully. 

The Tanzania Northern Circuit National Parks are some of the most popular tourist destinations in Africa. The Serengeti is world famous for its annual migration of millions of animals, while Ngorongoro Crater is home to a large number of rare and endangered species. Lake Manyara National Park is known for its lush vegetation and stunning views.

If you’re looking to experience some of the best wildlife viewing Africa has to offer, be sure to visit the Tanzania Northern Circuit National Parks!

We ensure that you actually experience these incredible ecosystems (rather than just ‘checking them off the list’ as more rushed safaris do). With multiple days to explore, you’ll maximize your chances of astounding wildlife sightings, and of seeing the more elusive species.
