See the great wildebeest migration
If you are going on a safari, and you can’t choose which destination or country you want to go to. Ask yourself these questions? Do you want to see the great migration, and if the answer is yes, head to Tanzania, and see the great migration? Each year some 1.3 million wildebeest probably more.
They, together with some 300,000 zebra, embark on a journey across the Serengeti national park in Tanzania, and Maasai Mara national reserve in Kenya in search of green pasture and water, and on the way attendant predator’s lion, cheetah, hyena, and crocs larking. They roam these beautiful landscapes, setting boundaries, changing the scenery, altering the vegetation, and lying down the limits and lifestyle of just everything else that lives here.
As it is possible to see the wildebeest in Tanzania throughout the year and possibly see them going through two of their obstacle. Have a front-row seat, and witness the Wildebeest going through the Grumeti River and the huge 18-20 feet crocodiles hunting them, and admire the wildebeest crossing the Mara River with crocodiles waiting for a feast and the river current washing the weak ones down.
It is home to the big five
Planning a Safari to Tanzania or Africa then the big five quickly comes to mind, these incredible, magnificent, and fearsome animals are unique and splendid on their own. Witnessing any of the Big 5 will truly remain embedded for years to come.
The name big five was coined by hunters as the most dangerous animals to hunt on foot, and also they have a trophy in the form of horns, tusks, or skin. Visiting Tanzania national parks offers you an incredible chance to see them either on game drives or on a walking safari led by our well-trained guides and park rangers.
Spend time with the Maasai and Hadzabe Bushmen
As the world becomes more modernized the opportunity to go “back in time” Visiting the remote tribes is becoming rarer day by day. Tall, slim, and slender, the Maasai are nomadic cattle, sheep, and goats harder’s, and for the cattle are the most important social, economic, and political factor. Cattle are a sign of wealth and social standing, as well as a food source from a mixture of milk and blood tapped from a cow’s jugular vein.
The Maasai traditional homeland is the northern Tanzania in an area that has the most visited game parks and reserves, and are their fore the most visited by tourist. Considering these exposures to the western tourist, they still maintain remarkable facets of their original culture and identity.
Bushmen are short in stature and of a yellowish color, often living a hunter-gathering lifestyle. Their language contains a variety of distinct clicks. These are the very earliest of cultures of Africa, responsible for the ancient rock painting.
Although simplicity in explanation, Bushmen are genetically more similar scientific to the biblical first man than any other group elsewhere on the planet. Men of these groups hunt and tap honey while women gather fruits and roots.

The chimpanzees go on with their lives –walking, sleeping, fighting, politicking, and eating as if you are not there. They take virtually no notice of visitors. This is perfect because you never feel like you are intruding. After spending the strictly controlled one hour with chimps, you leave the chimps and head to your accommodation.
