Tanzania is a country in East Africa, renowned for its national wild game parks. Bordering Kenya and with Indian Ocean coastline, Tanzania is also home to glacier-topped Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa at about 19,343 feet above sea level !
With vast savannas, deep red majestic sunsets over the eternal plains framed by the iconic Acacia trees, and thundering herds of a million migrating wildebeests, Africa remains the quintessential ‘childhood adventure’ that one is never too old for. Tanzania is home to large herds of wild elephants, giraffe, lion, cheetah, hippos, zebras, chimpanzees, leopards, hyenas, and many more.
There is just something in the air on the African plains, that overwhelming sense of time, of survival, of both the beginning and essence of life itself. Too dramatic of a description? It may seem so reading it, but we promise if you go there you will feel it.
Many people come with adequate time (2 to 3 weeks) to both go on safari as well as climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, and while we primarily specialize in the wildlife safaris (see our reason why below!) we are also able to assist you with climbing this impressive peak. Its not an easy climb, however, and very cold at the summit! But for some, the appeal of knocking off two bucket list items on one trip is too tempting.
KB Tambo Travel can help you sort out all the logistics that go into a well-planned safari in Africa, saving you both time and money. We have been on many Tanzanian safaris, and each time is as thrilling as the last. We never imagined when we took our first safari that the experience would endure, and remain one of the best trips we have taken in our life. We are hooked. Seeing these incredible animals live, in the wild, is truly life changing!
And, you don’t have to rough it. While our base safari trips are both reasonably priced and comfortable, there is always the opportunity to upgrade. Some people say the most comfortable and spoiled they ever felt on a vacation anywhere was on a luxury African lodge safari trip!
You can create your own adventure, or take one of the several trips that we have already hand-designed, including our top pick:
7 Days Best of Tanzania Safari – Hit all the cultural highlights of east Africa and several major national game parks including the famous Serengeti, the Ngorongoro crater, and more.
