The country’s so called “tourist circuits” were established largely due to the size of Tanzania, which encompasses a variety of distances, travel costs and times. To cover two or three circuits during one safari is not only possible but also frequently done. Flying is the easiest way to move from one circuit to another. There are many air operators who offer a network of scheduled flights between the circuits and these same operators also offer charter flights.
THE NORTHERN SAFARI CIRCUIT
Most of the destinations encompasss Tanzania’s most famous sights such as the Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti and Mt Kilimanjaro are all a part of this circuit.
The other is the fact that all the parks, towns and attractions are within easy reach of one another, taking only a couple of hours in travelling in-between destinations.
THE SOUTHERN SAFARI CIRCUIT
The national parks and game reserves of the Southern Safari Circuit are, arguably, the hidden treasures of Tanzania’s natural heritage. These parks are enormous, with some of the highest concentrations of animals anywhere in Africa and a spectacular diversity of wildlife including Roan Antelope, Sable Antelope, African Wild Dogs, and a multitude of colourful birdlife.
THE WESTERN CIRCUIT
The isolated far west of Tanzania presents a unique opportunity to escape the tourist crowds and experience the real essence of the African bush. You can see chimpanzees in their natural habitat at Gombe Stream or Mahale Mountains and trek through breath taking forests. Kitavi is also exceptional for hippo and lion populations.
MOUNTAIN CLIMBING AND HIKING
Mt Kilimanjaro undoubtedly tops the list as Africa’s most famous and highest mountain. Known as the world’s highest freestanding mountain, it stands at a towering 5896 metres (19,340 feet) at Uhuru peak. Tanzania also boasts many other mountain ranges and attractive peaks. Most of the country’s mountains and volcanoes are located in the north and east of the country.
