Tanzania National Parks:
By any standards, Tanzania is an exceptionally beautiful and interesting country. It is a country of immense natural endowments with its twelve national parks, seventeen game reserves, fifty game controlled areas, a conservation area and marine park, Tanzania’s wildlife resources are considered among the finest in the world and have been widely known for many years. They include the great Serengeti plains, the spectacular Ngorongoro crater, Lake Manyara, and Africa’s highest mountain Kilimanjaro, in the north and the relatively under developed Mikumi National Park and the Selous game reserve in the south.

Additional natural attractions include the sandy beaches north and south of Dar-es-Salaam, the exotic “spice island” of Zanzibar and excellent deep sea fishing at Mafia and Pemba Islands. Along the Indian Ocean. The remains of ancient settlements at Olduvai gorge in the interior Rift Valley is the site of discoveries of the traces of the earliest man. To the Tourist, Tanzania offers interesting culture and crafts from the cocktail of more than 130 ethnic tribes and dialects. The most notable are the Masai culture and Art and the Makonde sculptures and carvings done in ebony. Tanzanians are a warm, open, friendly people with a long tradition of generous hospitality and a wealth of folklore.

National Parks
SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK
This is arguably the best known wildlife sanctuary in the world. Serengeti is a corruption of the word “Siringit” in the Masai language which means endless plains. Within the park boundaries are more than three million large mammals. About 35 species of plains animals can be seen here including the so called “big five” i.e. elephant, rhino, lion (some 1500 of them), leopard and buffalo. In may or early June each year, huge herds of wildebeest, gazelle and zebra begin their spectacular migration. In their wake follow the predat ors; lion, cheetah and wild dog with vultures circling overhead. Other common species found here include hippo, giraffe, eland, impala and other antelope types, baboons, monkeys and a profusion of over 500 species of birds both migrant and resident and the black and white colobus monkeys.

NGORONGORO CRATER
This is one of the worlds greatest natural spectacles, its magical setting and abundant wildlife never failing to enthrall visitors. Lying some 180 kilometers from Arusha, the jewel in Ngorongoro crown is the deep volcanic crater the largest unfolded and unbroken caledra in the world. 19.2 km. In diatemeter, 610 m deep and 304 sq. km. In area. The rich pasture and permanent water of the crater floor supports a large resident population of wildlife of up to 25,000 predominantly grazing-animals. These include wildebeest, zebra, gazelle, buffalo, eland and warthog. The swamps and forest provide additional resources for hippo, elephant, waterbuck, reedbuck and bushbuck baboons and vervet monkeys. The steep inner slopes provide a habitat for dikdik and the rare mountain reedbuck. Jackals thrive in the crater and bat eared foxef live in short grass areas. Predatory animals – lion, leopard, cheetah, and serval cats live off the abundant wildlife and large packs of hyena roam the crater making their own kills and scavenging from others. The crater is a dynamic and constantly changing ecosystem and the numbers and proportion of some animals has fluctuated considerably over the past 30 years. However, the crater is just a small part of the Ngorongoro conservation area, which offers a whole range of attractions for the adventurous traveler. The friendly and knowledgeable driver guides will ensure that you have a wider and memorable visit of the Ngorongoro.

TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK
The park lies 120 kms. Away from Arusha and owes its name to the Tarangire River that threads its way through the length of the park. Tarangire park is famous for its dense wildlife population which is most spectacular between June and September, the dry period. During this time thorn sands of animals including wildebeest, zebra, eland, elephant hartebeest, buffalo and Oryx, migrate from dry Masai steppe to the Tarangire River looking for water lion, leopard and other predators follow the hoards. Tarangire is also home to some 500 varieties of bird.

KILIMANJARO NATIONAL PARK
This is the home of the famous mountain Kilimanjaro. It is the crown of Tanzania rising abruptly from the open plains, capped by snow and frequently fringed by clouds, it is one of Africa’s classic images. At 5895 m it is the roof of the African continent and the highest walk able summit in the world the diameter of its base is an incredible 40 miles.

Mt. Kilimanjaro is only a dormant volcano, but not extinct, ominous rumbles can sometimes be heard and gases emerge from the fume holes in the crater near the summit. Although just three degrees south of the equator. The peaks of both Kibo and Mawenzi have permanent caps of snow and ice.

During their time on the mountain, climbers pass from a tropical to arctic environment in just a few days. The various trails first pass through lush rain forests before reaching healthier and open moorland where giant lobelia and huge cactus-like groundsel grow. Above its moorland is the almost lunar land scape of an alpine desert which stretches between the two peaks of Kibo, the flat topped dome at the centre, and Mawenzi a group of jagged points and pinnacles on the eastern side inhospitable as this “moonscape” may seem, animals such as herds of eland thrive there. The highest point on Kibo, and indeed the whole of Kilimankaro, is Uhuru Peak, with its spectacular hanging glaciers and stupendous views of the African plains some 20,000 feet below. Also on Kibo is the slightly lower peak of Gilmans point. These are the goals for most trekkers. The peaks of Mawenzi are a specialty for professional mountaineers only.

UDZUNGWA MOUNTAINS NATIONAL PARK
This the latest addition to the array of National Parks in Tanzania. It is in principle a conservation area of about 2000 sq. km. In the south central regions of the country. The major attraction of the Park is its bio – diversity and unique rain forest, where many rare plants not found anywhere else in the world have been identified, from a tiny African violet to 30 metre high trees. As well as being home to about six types of primates, including two endemic species The Iringa red colobus monkey and the sanje crested mangabey. The plateau supports populations of elephant, buffalo, lion, leopard and wild dog as well as rare species of forest birds four of which were only discovered in the last few years.

SELOUS GAME RESERVE
Considered as Africa’s greatest conservation area, the Selous is arguably Africa’s most natural wilderness area, allowing visitors the opportunity to enjoy a unique and unspoilt wildlife experience. Bigger than Switzerland and Denmark put together, totaling about 55,000 sq. kms. And covers a wide variety of wildlife habitats including lakes; open grassland; acacia and miombo woodlands; and riverine forests. Due to its unique ecological importance, the Selous Game reserve was designated a United Nations “World Heritage Site” in 1981.

Selous Game reserve is home to ‘some of the largest and most important populations of elephant, buffalo and wild dog in Africa. Almost 60,000 of Tanzania’s elephants are found there, while black rhinos survive in remote areas the Selous is also a prime destination for bird watchers – more than 420 endemic species have been recorded in this nature reserve.

Easily known as the "Coca-Cola route", Marangu is by far the most popular route to the summit of Kilimanjaro. This could partly be as a result of the fact that the Marangu is the least expensive route, but more so, perhaps the fact that it is possible to do the Marangu route in 6 days, thereby getting to the summit one day earlier than on the Machame route. It is the easiest route to Kilimanjaro Uhuru Peak but least scenic. More details....

Read more about Marangu route trekking
 

Sometimes called the Whisky Route. This is a popular route up steep paths through magnificent forests to gain a ridge leading through the moorland zones to the Shira Plateau. It then traverses beneath the glaciated precipices of the Southern Ice fields to join the Barafu Route to the summit. This is probably the most beautiful route up Kilimanjaro. All your equipment and supplies are portered and a cook prepares all your meals. Where accommodation on the Marangu route is in huts, the Machame route offers strictly tents only. This makes Machame route better suited to the slightly more adventurous hiker, rewarding him with a scenic splendor such as not seen on the Marangu route. The Machame route is normally completed in a minimum of 6 days. More details....

Rongai Route This remote and less frequently used route is the second easiest route to Kilimanjaro. The approach to the mountain is from the less-forested north side and the descent is by the Marangu Route. There are several variations, the one described below is a longer route taking in Mawenzi Tarn. More details....

 

Umbwe Route The Umbwe route is one of the shortest routes to the Southern Glaciers and the Western Breach. It is probably the most scenic, non-technical route on Kilimanjaro. It is quite taxing, primarily due to the relatively fast ascent to higher altitude, but the rewards are plentiful. More details....

 
Lemosho Route This is the longest and most remote route to Kilimanjaro. After beautiful forests and moorlands it crosses the Shira Plateau to meet up with the Machame Route. Groups may be accompanied on the first day by an armed ranger as the forests around the Lemosho Glades are rich in buffalo, elephant and other game.

At 5,199 m, Mount Kenya is the second highest peak in Africa. It is an ancient extinct volcano, during whose period of activity (3.1–2.6 million years ago) it is thought to have risen to 6,500 m. Mount Kenya is one of the most impressive landscapes in East Africa. There are three main climbing routes, which penetrate the forest and the moorland - Naromoru, Sirimon and Chogoria.

Kilimanjaro Climb Expedition tips and advice to follow:

>Find a good tour operator: You can only climb Kilimanjaro with an organized trek and along established routes, so you have to go with an expert operator. The Kilimanjaro climbing operators vary from excellent to downright negligent so be selective and try not to be too cheap if you want to have the most enjoyable climb experience. you can count on Kilimanjaroclimbexpedition.com

>Book in advance: If you intend to climb Kilimanjaro, be sure to book in advance. This will enable you to go in high season, which is January-March and September-October. High Season is a good time to go simply because the weather condition is safest for Kilimanjaro climbing.

>Get fit & prepare well: Break in your hiking boots and walk the dog; climb stairs; hike some hills with a pack on. Walking is the best way to prepare yourself for the long hike up Kilimanjaro to ensure you have right fitness. You need to build up stamina. It's a good idea to get a basic medical check-up before you go. You don't want to be dealing with an ingrown toenail or worse at 18,000 feet. Travel insurance that includes medical is also a must.

>Pack well:  Pack light but make sure you have everything you need to deal with altitude and variation in temperatures. Don't worry about carrying it yourself since a porter/s will take up to 30lbs (15kg) of your personal gear in a duffel bag. You can rent some equipment and clothing locally but you may end up with teeny sleeping bags and a fraying pink jacket. See our recommended climb checklist.

>Choose your convenient route: Make sure your hike is at least 6-7 days to provide the much needed Kilimanjaro commodity, acclimatization if you want to have maximum success. Any shorter and you will not be properly acclimatized. Routes vary in degree of difficulty, traffic and scenic beauty. The least difficult routes are Marangu and Rongai; the more difficult routes are Machame, Umbwe and Lemosho. The longer routes may have more difficult hiking but you'll be more acclimatized and your chances of reaching the summit are therefore higher. The longer western routes also allow you to start your summit day at a more reasonable hour. For details on each route see route descriptions.

>Dealing with altitude: Pace yourself; you will hear the Swahili phrase "pole pole" - slowly slowly, heed it well. Drink lots of water about 4-5 liters a day is recommended. Luckily the mountain streams after the first day are good to drink and naturally cooled. Walk high and sleep low. Take a walk to a higher elevation during the day and come back down to sleep. Consult a doctor before you go and get some medication to prevent altitude sickness. Also make sure your guides are carrying the proper medical equipment such as oxygen, radios and a recompression bag to deal with altitude sickness if it arises.

>Reaching the summit: The hardest part of the trek. Pace yourself, be determined, and you will reach the Uhuru peak. The final ascent is usually timed so you can watch the sunrise over the crater and distant plains. Enjoy the view take a few photos and get back down before you get too affected by the high altitude. Take a well earned nap.
 
Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania stands at 19,340 feet (5895 m) and is Africa's tallest mountain. The attraction of hiking up Mount Kilimanjaro is that it's not a technical climb so no equipment such as oxygen and ropes are necessary. But it's no walk in the park. As you you'll see from the images below, trekkers make their way through 5 climatic zones before reaching the summit. Weather changes from moment to moment and the high altitude wreaks havoc on the body and mind...read more.

East Africa travel destinations that we include in our catalogue include Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda. East Africa is home to the safari, since this is where the African savannah is at its best and the plains are filled with wildlife. Hikers also come to East Africa to enjoy the mountains, including Mount Kilimanjaro (Tanzania), Mount Kenya, Mount Longonot and Mount Meru. The East African coastline has some of the best beaches in the world, including the famous spice island of Zanzibar.
 
Kenya Safari:
Kenya is the original safari country where the 'safari' (Swahili for travel) begun. In Kenya, you can mix the idyllic experience of a tropical beach vacation on the warm Indian Ocean with an East African wild animal safari expedition. Combining the two makes for a unique holiday. Part of your vacation is filled with excitement as you observe African wildlife at close quarters, while part is spent relaxing and soaking up the sun on a sandy beach.

A beach and safari break in Kenya is an exotic getaway from the daily routines of city life. It also makes for the ideal honeymoon for newly weds, with time to relax as well as a touch of adventure.

East Africa, including Kenya, does not yet have a high profile as a holiday destination in America, but is growing in reputation as a unique vacation experience. Europeans, and the British in particular, have less distance to travel to Africa, and have been been the mainstay of Kenyan tourism, attracted by the unique mix of the tropical beach and African safari vacation. Luxury vacations have become more affordable as European currencies have strengthened, prompting investment in Kenyan tourist facilities.
 
Tanzania Safari:
Safari in Tanzania is a worth undertaking. We are the original safari company offering quality Tanzania safaris to Ngorongoro Crater, animal migration tours in Serengeti, Climbing Mt Kilimanjaro, Tanzania  honeymoon vacations in Zanzibar Island, family holidays in spice island and luxury beach resorts of pemba island. A variety of accommodation in Tanzania is offered from lodge, hotels and safari tented camps...Read more.
 
The best time to go for an African safari is when the animals are easy to find and in dense numbers. Deciding when to go on safari depends on what country you would like to visit and when you are able to plan your trip. Seasons differ in East Africa so you can really plan a great safari for almost every month of the year, if you are flexible about where you want to go to.....:
 
Kenya:
The best time to go on safari in Kenya and experience a huge density and diversity of wildlife is when the annual migration of millions of wildebeest, zebra and gnu's descend on the Mara plains with predators close behind. The best time to see this wildlife spectacle is from July to October. Other parks in Kenya are also excellent and the best time to visit these would be during the dry seasons - January through March and July through October.

With the scarcity of water during the dry seasons, the animals tend to gather in more concentrated numbers around permanent water holes, rivers and lakes, so they are easier to find. The vegetation is also less lush which simply means that viewing animals from a distance is easier.

Tanzania:
If you want to see the Great Migration unfold, head to Tanzania's northern parks; the Serengeti and Ngorongoro. The best time to witness the annual migration is probably February - March when the wildebeest and zebra have their young. Not only can you enjoy seeing baby animals, but the predators are at the highest number too. Because the herds also concentrate in the south of the Serengeti, it's easy to plan your wildlife viewing in that area and find a safari company that offers lodging there.

June to November is Tanzania's dry season and is the best time to visit all the parks (and you can always hop over to Kenya's Masai Mara to witness the Great Wildebeest Migration during this time). Tanzania's Southern Parks are perfect to visit during this time since the animals tend to congregate around permanent water and it isn't so hot and humid.

All of Tanzania's parks suffer from the rains which generally fall from March to May in the North, and from November to May in the South and West. Roads get washed out and given the sheer size of Tanzania's parks, the animals tend to spread out, and this makes wildlife viewing less satisfying (if you're looking for sheer numbers of animals).

December through March can get quite hot and humid, especially in Western and Southern Tanzania which makes it a little uncomfortable to spend a lot of time in the bush.

If you want to add a hike up Mount Kilimanjaro to your safari, the best time to hike is January - March and September - October.

Masai Mara - Serengeti wildebeest migration:
Wildebeest migration to and back from Serengeti into the Maasai Mara is the single most popular wildlife spectacle in Kenya. The wildebeest migration is such a phenomenon it involves movement of over 1 million animals crossing plains and rivers in the Mara migration. River crossings are the most spectacular where the wildebeest of Mara jump into rivers full of crocodiles and surging currents. The wildebeest is feted as the clown of the Savannah. Also known as a gnu, the animal has a structure resembling a young horse with a heavily built frontal shoulders and chest and a slender posterior. Its legs are so slender it’s intriguing how it supports the proportionately larger body frame. The ‘clown’ title results from its unusual behavior considered to other bovids, for example a gnu herd will usually scatter in different directions when attacked by a lion.
 
 
Lamu Town began life as a 14th century Swahili settlement. But the island has seen many visitors and influences, including Portuguese explorers, Turkish traders and the Omani Arabs. Despite all these influences, Lamu developed its own particular culture which has ultimately endured. The island is a beautiful place of rolling dunes and endless beaches, where tiny villages nestle among coconut and mango plantations and lateen sailed dhows ply the waters. Dense mangrove forests fringe the mainland and the inland sides of the island. The beach on Lamu Island is 12km of empty sands backing on to an ocean protected by a reef...Read more..
 
 

Mount Kenya: Mount Kenya National Park
Mount Kenya plays a crucial role in the life of the country being Kenya's single most important permanent watershed and her largest forest reserve. The fertile soils of its lower slopes also sustain the growth of the nation's richest farmlands whilst much of its vegetation is globally unique. In recent years, however, the Mountain has suffered greatly from the adverse effects of deforestation, resulting in large tracts of its lower slopes being entirely denuded of trees and occupied by squatters. And, although much of the vast forest cover remains intact, the growing demand for timber (Kenya's staple construction and fuel source) threatens to lead to even more serious deforestation and subsequent soil erosion.....Read more...
