Encounter wildlife in Tanzania

 
In the “safari oscars” we reckon Tanzania wins the numbers of animals, variety of species, and epic landscapes categories! Big cats, impressive migrations and enormous diversity are the ingredients for an amazing family safari. On an Africa Exclusive luxury safari, you get close to the animals and far from the crowds. We do this by using small, exclusive lodges and camps in remote locations and on private reserves

Imagine your family amid the Great Migration on the immense Serengeti plains. Lines of wildebeest threading across the entire horizon, herds of zebra and countless Thomson’s gazelle, surrounding your private vehicle. The world’s greatest migration travels with the seasons through the changing Serengeti landscapes. We track it and arrange your stay in a luxury camp nearby. Or, you can even have your own private mobile camp to follow the herds.

Whenever you wish to travel, we can give you the best chance to encounter the migration. Christmas sees the herds gathering on the short grass plains of the southern Serengeti. Hundreds of thousands of calves are born in February, up and running in minutes. Easter sees the migration roaming north to the Grumeti River to run the gauntlet of fearsome crocodiles. The herds continue north, many passing into the Masai Mara from July to September. Mkombe’s House is an excellent private family villa in these months. The herds return south through October and November.

Lions rule in Tanzania. Big prides dominate the other cats and thrive on the abundant plains game. Lions largely stay put — of course their favourite time of year is when the Great Migration passes through. Ruaha, Katavi and Selous are also places to encounter lion. More graceful and cannier are leopard. You could see one dozing on the branch of a jackalberry tree. If your family would like to see cheetah, we may take you to luxurious Namiri Plains in the eastern Serengeti, where these beautiful cats thrive on the private reserve.

Although the Great Migration and big cats steal the headlines, millions of other animals thrive in Tanzania. Each animal has its character and uniquely adapted body. Your family will laugh at the antics of baboons and be moved by the sight of a mother elephant helping her babies in the shallows of the Tarangire River. A pair of ostrich and their chicks might waddle down the track before your vehicle, while a “journey” of giraffe pass by in stately grace.

Tanzania’s elephant population tumbled alarmingly from 110,000 to 43,000 between 2009 and 2014. The Government responded and anti-poaching teams have helped numbers to increase to around 60,000 today. That’s second only to Botswana. The situation for rhinoceros was even more perilous, as numbers reduced to just 15 in 2015, but recovered to 167 by 2019. Many of the exclusive lodges that we use have conservation programmes in partnership with local communities. We can introduce your family to this work on your safari.
