Visit Tanzania one of Africa’s top safari destinations. Your thirst for the wildlife viewing will be over filled here and big cats are seen here without too much work. All African Big Five can be discovered in various Tanzanian parks and reserves, and all the Big five are present in the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti National Park. Almost 40% of the country is protected and set aside for conservation, which means that it’s easy to go on a Tanzania safari for two full weeks and drive from park to park while rarely leaving the bush.
While the quality of safaris can vary according to what you will be paying, all visitors should expect the best of their safari team, from competent, well-informed guides to well served food and comfortable accommodation. Remember that many of these multiple safari options are available in the same areas and parks, and that what differs is only the accommodation facilities offered; not the wildlife and the scenery that you will see. Tanzania Safari have something to offer to everyone. Experience the adventure of budget camping or the opulence of luxury camping safaris. Enjoy a truly memorable lodge safari, or take it one step further and go fly camping. Game drives are the most important part of a wildlife safari.
Tanzania Safari Types
Tanzania Game Drive Info
There are several types of Standard Game Drives, which are listed below. With a tailor-made Tanzania safari and your own vehicle, you are able to choose the types and duration of the game drives you go on. If you are on a group safari, the types and durations are usually predefined and fixed. On safaris where you fly to the game park or reserve, the game drives are normally set and controlled by the lodge or camp you are staying at. Game drives can be long, hot, dusty and bumpy (ladies don’t forget your sports bra), but are great fun!
Note: Most game drives avoid the heat of the day when many of the animals are sheltering from the sun and it is generally recognized as early morning and late afternoon game drives provide the best opportunities for game viewing, but as the animals go where and when they want, this is not always true.
Early Morning: An Early Morning Game Drive starts just before dawn at around 6 am and normally finishes by 8:30 am when you return for breakfast. Virtually all lodges and camps will have tea, coffee and biscuits etc. available from around 5:30 am, so you can partake of a little light refreshment before you go.
Morning: A Morning Game Drive usually starts after breakfast at around 7:30 am and finishes in time for lunch at around 12:30.
Late Morning: A Late Morning Game Drive is usually done in tandem with an Early Morning Game Drive and starts between 10 and 11 am, returning for lunch at around 12:30.
An All Day Game Drive, as the name suggests, effectively lasts all day and usually a packed lunch is provided. They normally start after breakfast at around 7:30 am and return before dark between 6 pm and 6:30 pm. They are usually done in large parks/reserves where you cover long distances, or in the case of the Ngorongoro Crater, to avoid dual entry fees.
An En-Route Game Drive usually takes place in the morning or late afternoon and as the name suggests, is performed en-route to a lodge or camp etc. The duration can vary wildly depending upon the journey undertaken, and can even be just the short drive from the lodge or camp to the park exit and vice versa.
An Afternoon Game Drive usually starts around 4 pm, returning before dark between 6 pm and 6:30 pm.
