Safaris, overland journeys in Africa to experience its incredible wildlife, are one of the best activities for any vacation! Safaris in Tanzania offer an unforgettable experience, with the Big5, have scenic views, exotic flora and fauna, vast landscapes, pleasant weather, learned guides, and friendly locals happy for visitors to experience their cultures.
Along with the adventure, knowledge, and tranquility, some tourists might also seek luxury, and so, Tanzania offers countless luxury safari experiences in its national parks and reserves, to make the trip even more special and memorable for travellers! But there are some things that visitors need to keep in mind before planning their vacation!
Luxury safaris are expensive. They are typified by the quality and decor of the accommodations, exclusivity, privacy, highly personalised service, and incredible food. All this in the middle of the bush, wild Africa.
They can cost more than $500/- per day per person, including a driver, a ride, specialised accommodation, park fees, and delicious meals. Tour operators may customize the trip according to the guest’s budget, and choices. But the high cost is definitely worth it! Most safari guides are knowledgeable and experienced, and therefore, provide quality information. As a driver is provided, the tourist can give their undivided attention to the animals and landscapes.
Some safaris include picnics in the African savannahs and plans to watch the sunset from beautiful viewpoints. These special experiences allow the guests to absorb the beauty and tranquility of the region, and privately observe the scenery. Some safaris even offer activities such as safe night drives, relaxing spas, and cool swimming pools, so guests can enjoy and relax around the clock! However, the more luxurious the safari is, the more the price!
An important thing for any safari goer to know is the safety regulations of the park or reserve. They must stay within the vehicle unless expressly allowed, and must abide by the rules that are told to them, to avoid any harm to themselves or the animals. Luxury safaris offer exclusive tours, so tourists should act wisely and be careful while interacting with the environment.
Luxury safaris are available in areas in northern Tanzania such as Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, and Arusha National Park, and regions in the south such as Ruaha National Park, and Selous Game Reserve. Northern Tanzania tends to attract more tourists so the southern parks and lodges are a good choice for those seeking to escape the crowds. However, wherever the guests go, the experience is memorable and unique!
World class lodges and private mobile camps can be found at various locations. At Serengeti National Park, guests can closely observe the animals, and even easily spot the Big 5 i.e. lions, leopards, rhinoceros, elephants, and buffaloes, as well as zebras, antelopes, and wild dogs! In addition to these animals, Oryx, wildebeests, impalas, elands are found at Ngorongoro Crater. At Tarangire National Park, visitors are greeted with a hilly landscape, which can be privately and safely explored through the luxury safari. The luxury safaris have comfort and good management, and make it easier for visitors to have a wonderful vacation!
