Tanzania

If you want to actually track the wildebeest migration, it has to be in Tanzania

Whether you’re watching hippos wallow in the Great Ruaha River, tracking the Big Five in the Ngorongoro Crater or following the epic wildebeest migration across the Serengeti – you’ll love the truly ‘big’ game experience that is Tanzania.

If you want to actually track the wildebeest migration, it has to be in Tanzania. Pack a good pair of binoculars and join a mobile camp that closely follows all the action, including a front-row view as the herds of wildebeest dash across the crocodile-infested waters of the Mara River.  

Alternatively, consider the cool, swampy areas of Tarangire National Park, where huge herds of elephant come down to bathe and play. Or Katavi, where you’ll find serious numbers of crocs and hippos – some of them in pods of up to five hundred.

If, however, you want to explore lush forests and verdant vegetation, head straight to the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the world’s largest volcanic caldera and sanctuary to an extraordinary proliferation of wildlife. Naturally, you can’t miss the pink flamingos that skim the surface of nearby Lake Manyara, the country’s biggest soda lake, or the area’s famous tree-climbing lions. 

For boat trips and birdwatching, make your way south to two of Africa’s largest and least exploited wildlife sanctuaries. Herds of elephant, buffalo and roan antelope roam the hills and rock-strewn landscape of the mighty Selous Game Reserve, while Ruaha National Park protects a truly untamed landscaped that has changed little since the days of the early European explorers.

  • We have travelled with The Ultimate Travel Company six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. Given our obvious satisfaction with Ultimate, we had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was unfortunately cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble. When travel becomes viable again we would definitely rebook with them.
