Tanzania is the place to go if you’re looking to cross as many items off your safari bucket list as possible. After climbing Africa’s tallest peak and witnessing the largest overland migration on Earth, you’ll be able to chill out on the sleepy beaches of Zanzibar.
The annual migration of 1.5 million wildebeest runs through the Serengeti, with 200,000 zebras and 300,000 gazelles accompanying them on their journey. This migration truly creates a sensational “Out of Africa” experience. Located just 20km off the mainland, Zanzibar is another world away from the Tanzanian mountains and savannahs, with its shimmering beaches ringed with coral reefs. Boasting 3 of Africa’s 7 Natural Wonders, Tanzania is the ultimate all-around destination.
June to October are the best times for trekking Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, with the best times to witness the Wildebeest migration varying in different parts of Tanzania.
