TANZANIA TOURS

Do you want to see Africa's iconic Big Five wildlife? Then a Tanzania tour should be at the top of your list.

Home to Africa's iconic Mt. Kilimanjaro and an incredible array of fascinating wildlife, our Tanzania tours will create a lifetime of memories.

Take in extraordinary views and explore lush valleys dense with tropical rainforest are on offer to all those wishing to trek to the top of Africa's highest mountain, while the National Parks of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater provide visitors with great opportunities to view the vast array of animals and birds that populate this beautiful African country.

Discover the incredible landscapes and warm hospitality on one of our group Tanzania tours. Whether you want to join us on our ascent of the iconic Mt Kilimanjaro or simply visit the Serengeti National Park to experience some of the very best wildlife viewing in the world, you'll look back at your tour to Tanzania as the trip of a lifetime.

For the perfect end to your stay in Tanzania why not spend a few nights exploring the beautiful islands, beaches and tropical blue waters of Zanzibar?

Our Tanzania tours also take you to the Serengeti National Park, which plays a key part in one of nature's greatest spectacles - the wildebeest migration. Every year, millions of wildebeest make their way from Kenya's Masai Mara Game Reserve, crossing the treacherous, Nile crocodile-infested waters of the Nile River and head back to the southern Serengeti to give birth to a new generation.

During the months of January to March, the migratory herds of wildebeest, zebra and other wildlife descend on southern Serengeti for calving season, giving travellers on safari in Tanzania the unique opportunity to see this live. Predator interaction is dramatic during this period as well, as lion, leopard and cheetah move into the area to take advantage of the vulnerable calves - creating the ultimate battle for survival.

The herds will slowly begin to make their way north between the months of March to August before they descend back into the Masai Mara - if you're lucky to be on an African safari at the time - you may see some early river crossings at the Grumeti River.

Thinking about going on a Tanzania tour but need some encouragement? Here are some quick facts that will make you want to explore Africa.

TOUR REVIEWS

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.

Conscientious in early communication; knowledgeable, humorous and caring tour guides; an exemplary itinerary that was well organized yet flexible; an overall extraordinary experience. I'd recommend them enthusiastically.

Everything about the trip was thought through, fine-tuned , and marvelous. From Ant Horribin helping us arrange the trip, to rep Waled Ali, and our guide Big Mo, we could not have asked for a better team. Our sincere thanks to them.

Amazing tour. Any issues we had were addressed in a timely fashion and the resolutions were satisfactory. My only complaint is the driver picking us up was late and none of the cell numbers worked when we tried to call and figure out what to do.

I have dealt with Anthony Horrobin on a number of occasions and it is like talking to an old friend on the phone. Anthony is super-efficient and will always go the extra mile to create the perfect trip.
