PRIVATE CANVAS > TANZANIA
Tanzania has Africa's largest herds of buffalo and elephant, its biggest packs of predators and plains game, its oldest rainforests, largest game reserve, highest mountain and deepest lake; and - in the wildebeest migration it shares with Kenya - the single greatest wildlife spectacle left on earth. It is also home to some of the most interesting peoples and cultures of Africa: the Maasai, Iraqw, the Barabaig, Hadza and Wa’arush. Royal African’s guides know when to visit and where to stay in this vast land, where the unguided tourist can get lost, flooded out and otherwise disheartened.
Royal African’s many years of experience mean that we visit Ruaha when the temperature is bearable, we know when to see the great Selous Game Reserve and where to go in the million-acre Katavi.
Our grasp of logistics means that your private camp will be ready and waiting when you have flown over the long distances required. We may visit Mahale on Lake Tanganyika while your safari crew move your camp to its next destination, or maybe we’ll go to Zanzibar, the Indian Ocean island where harmless Whale Sharks cruise the pristine reefs.
In Northern Tanzania there is almost a complete absence of fences. Wildlife remains unfettered, freely able to move with the changing seasons . Some areas can be spectacular one month and almost barren three months later. Getting you to the right place at the right time in comfort and safety is part of our professional challenge as Royal African Safaris guides. View photos.
