In Tanzania the sweeping plains of east Africa, with their fertile soils and flat-topped acacias, meet the nutrient-leached miombo woodlands more typical of south-central Africa. This vast country is home to diverse wildlife, including some 430  species and subspecies of mammal, 1066 of bird and 1380 of butterfly, making the Tanzania Safari a popular choice for game, bird and insect enthusiasts.

Most of Tanzania is high plateau (900-1800m) fringed by the two bowed arms of the great Rift Fault. The course of the Western Arc is marked by the deep, isolated freshwater Lakes Tanganyika and Malawi, where hundreds of species of unique cichlid fish have evolved.  Tanzania Safaris are unrivalled in this day and age.

Tanzania has two rainy seasons: the short monsoon from October to December, and the long rains from March and May. Between June and October is the cool and dry season.

Tanzania's Northern safari circuit is more famous and therefore more crowded.In contrast, Tanzania's Southern safari circuit is ideal for more wilderness-orientated travellers and those that are more interested in wildlife than seeing tourists.  The true Tanzania Safari experience.  In southern Tanzania, Authentic Tanzania Safaris continue to pioneer camping safaris and walking safaris.

Tanzania's coastal islands of Pemba, Zanzibar and Mafia have both history and indiginous wildlife, and are also revered by scubadivers and snorkellers.
