Get inspired for your tailor-made trip!

Mama Africa Safari & Trekking has compiled a number of example trips for you to get inspired. All trips we organize are comfortable and customized. We know Tanzania like no other and are happy to help you organize your trip.

Planning your holiday itinerary

Tanzania has three safari circuits, and each one of them, in its own right, would make Tanzania a top wildlife destination. The popular Northern circuit with the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater offers one of the best classical safaris in Africa, especially if timed with the annual wildebeest migration.

All of Mama Africa's trips are flexible and tailor-made to suit our travellers. We believe in giving you full and detailed information about the options available, so that you can make the right decisions. Most of our travellers prefer to book a full "tailor-made itinerary" with us. This means that we arrange everything for a substantial section of your trip - which in practice is often your whole holiday, from start to finish.

Meanwhile we hope that the ideas below will offer inspiration. We’ve tried to highlight the strengths of the various countries so click below for our recommendations on some of the best camps and lodges for great wildlife experiences. These lists are far from exhaustive; many excellent camps aren’t included here – but you will find the crème de la crème of places which offer outstanding wildlife experiences, as well as some which excel for very specific species or activities.

Wildlife Safaris Itinerary

You’ll have few problems spotting the more-prominent African animals in Tanzania, including lion, elephant, giraffe and buffalo. For big cats, you’ll want to head to the Serengeti, while Ngorongoro Crater is where you want to be for a chance of seeing black rhino. Other wildlife highlights include chimpanzee trekking, checking out African wild dogs, and being awestruck by the several million wildebeest, gazelle and zebra on their annual migration.
