Planning a holiday to East Africa’s top safari destination can get very exciting and once you are here, with a mix of emotions, energy and the thrill to re-live your dreams, this adventure will be experience of a kind. While most travellers come to Tanzania with a clear intent to fully immerse into the wildlife excitement, we jotted down some ‘great to know’ facts that will be useful for you to make the most of your safari experience in Tanzania with the least possible compromises.
When you Safari Guide offers you for an early morning safari experience, make sure you are up for it! Most of animals are very active at night up to morning. This is particularly true for predators that are most energetic during the morning, scavenging for food. Similarly, elephants, giraffes, zebras and many other animals prefer the morning and evening movement, when the sun is not too harsh. This is also a great time to enjoy photography.
Sundowners with a difference
Select lodges in Serengeti, Ruaha, Selous and in many other National Parks, once you are back from your day-long dusty and fun safari, can arrange for you, blissful sundowners in unique locations. If you are on honeymoon safari, you could ask for a private arrangement at dusk, where you can enjoy the majestic views after a short walk in nature and while away your evening, in absolute serenity, away from the lodge location, and other guests.
Strike conversations with your interactive guide
Your Driver Guide is not only designated to take you from one place to another. The wealth of knowledge about the wildlife, culture, history of Tanzania carried by these professional well-trained guides, is commendable and asset for travellers. If you in a family or with a big group, you will enjoy the interaction with our guides, who are always passionate about sharing their love for their country through your travels across the country, and of course ensure that you make the most of your safari experience in Tanzania.
Look beyond your camera lens
While it can get very exciting to always capture the live action happening in front of you, we highly recommend you to soak into the moment and enjoy your safari experience as it is. A pride of lioness chasing buffaloes, the giraffe bending its long neck and legs to spit water from river, the elephants enjoying mud-bathing or the wildebeest putting their life at stake during river crossings, all these are great moments to capture on the lens, and more so, to enjoy live, with your own eyes.
Besides being famous for its Big 5 animal safari, Tanzania has plenty to offer which may go amis during your safari. One of the best ways to learning about the rich history and culture of the country is to visit the local tribes en-route to National Parks. The Masai and Hadzabe for instance have strong traditional values that are well reflected in their daily lifestyle; as travellers, you will get to meet and interact with these tribes and, also witness some of the special ceremonies including marriages.
