We are towards the end of this year and Tanzania is brimming with exciting news that will lure you to set your foot on the magical soil of Africa. If you want a fresh gush of energy and are waiting for life-changing travels, here is why a holiday to Tanzania in early 2020 may be just what you have been looking for!
A unique destination shining on the world map
While many travellers are familiar with Kenya safaris, the neighbouring Tanzania featuring huge concentration of wildlife and diverse adventurous experiences has been favoured on some of the most influential platforms. Recently, Safari Bookings, an online web travel portal ranked Tanzania as the second best Safari Destination, after Botswana as voted by 4,000 travellers and travel experts. Conde Naste, a popular luxury and travel magazine, mentioned Tanzania as one of the top 20 countries to visit in the world in 2019.
So what makes Tanzania an extra-ordinary holiday destination?
The greatness of the Serengeti National Park featuring the second-largest migration on this planet, the scenic and inspiring heights of Mt. Kilimanjaro and the relaxing vibe on the pristine white sand beaches of Zanzibar are simply not another ‘must-go places’. We define these unique places on Earth as life transforming retreats where you get a sense of adventure; reality and rejuvenation, at the same time.
If you are looking for an off-the beaten path experience, The Ruaha National Park with its rare, barren landscape, the Selous Game Reserve inviting you to its elusive and dense beauty and the Pemba island make for a perfect exotic itinerary.
So is there a downside to book a holiday to Tanzania? we would honestly say the wild charm is simply spell-binding and this is what makes the country a busy destination during the peak season of June through September. Despite, the popular belief that these three months are the best, our travel experts would highly recommend you to consider coming to Tanzania from January to June and here is why…
The peak season from June through September is the time that brings in massive number of travellers who have watching the ‘wildebeest migration’ as one of their major buck goals. During this period most of the lodges are fully booked and for last minute holiday planners this may not be ideal. From January through March, the Northern Safari Circuit is brimming with visible concentration of predators thanks to the calving season where game viewing can be enjoyed with no disturbance for long hours.
Exclusive offers in the beginning of the year
With the end of the festive season, and major bookings in the peak season, January through June are those special months when you can truly make the most of the safari offers. It is from this period where you get to see the transformation of the landscape from barren dry, to lush green views and witness some of the most unique moment is the wild. If you are a family, you love to be witness the calving season with family, come on an exclusive honeymoon safari or book a retreat with a group.
Unlike busy tourist focused countries, Tanzania’s vastness allows you to travel far and wide; offering you the leisure of space and authentic feel of the atmosphere. Lake Natron, Empakai Crater, Katavi, Rubondo Island and Mufindi are just some hidden treasures of Tanzania.
