Where to go on a Tanzania family safari?

 
It’s 180 miles from Kilimanjaro to the middle of the Serengeti. Packed into that space you have Africa’s tallest mountain, the Great Rift Valley, Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti plains. And more besides! The way the scenery unfolds is spell-binding so we suggest exploring it all in a special private safari vehicle with an expert guide. Then there are the south and west, perhaps Africa’s greatest areas of untapped potential. Selous, Ruaha, Katavi and the Mahale Mountains are wild places, where an adventurous family can enjoy luxury travel of a lifetime.

The Serengeti covers 11,500 square miles, so it’s nearly 20 times bigger than Greater London. It has richly diverse habitats of forests, rivers, hills and those wonderful endless plains. Animals, especially big lion prides are everywhere. You could devote 10 days just to exploring the Serengeti — three nights minimum! Our advice is to follow the Great Migration and build your trip around that epic event. We track the migration and know the best camps in each part of the Serengeti.

The Ngorongoro Crater is 8,000 feet high, 10 miles across and 2,000 feet deep. Around 20,000 animals roam the 100 square mile crater floor. Everybody wants to experience it! We will make your safari as private as possible by selecting small, exclusive accommodation on or very near the crater rim. We wake you early and get you down onto the crater floor at the earliest opportunity in your private vehicle. Then when it gets busy, we take you off to explore other amazing areas nearby.

We have one super-fit family (including an Olympian) who climbed it in 3 days! Normal mortals however, will need to allow a week or more. We prefer the less frequented routes and provide a private guide and team of porters, who carry everything from an entire camp to a few dozen eggs. Ol Donyo Lengai is another spectacular hiking challenge. It’s a perfectly conical volcano in the Ngorongoro Highlands.

Africa’s largest area of protected land is in southern Tanzania. Named after a nineteenth century hunter and adventurer, the Selous offers the chance to canoe rivers, camp out in elephant country and track lion on foot. The Selous combines perfectly with the Ruaha National Park, which sits on a convergence zone where east African and southern African mammal and bird species meet. This means that it has an incredible variety of mammals and 530 species of bird. It has an enormous lion population as well as wild dog, cheetah and leopard. Ruaha is 50% bigger than the Serengeti with 10% of the visitors. It embraces mountains, savannah, rich forests and major rivers.

Mahale is unlike anywhere else in Africa! Steep-sided mountains clothed in rainforest run down to the awesomely deep Lake Tanganyika. You arrive by light aircraft and dhow and spend your days wandering the mountains and encountering habituated families of chimpanzee. The light aircraft that takes you to Mahale also calls in at Katavi and these contrasting places combine perfectly for a week’s safari. Four great floodplains are the setting for rising degrees of animal mayhem as the dry season advances. Immense herds of elephant and buffalo gather as the rivers diminish to pools. Lurking crocodiles and greedy prides of lion complete the picture. And, with just a handful of tiny camps, you have the place pretty well to yourselves.
