What to see in Tanzania Safari

Asking yourself what to see in Tanzania Safari? Well we have prepared this information for you to take out your worries. In this guide, we focus on the tips and insights that will help you make the most of your time and money.

Tanzania’s national parks are home to the Big Five, the Big Cats, the African buffalo and the African elephant. Tanzania is also one of the best locations in East Africa to see the annual migration of wildebeest that sees two million wildebeest and gazelles pass through the national parks. The Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater are the most popular national parks in Tanzania, but there are also many spectacular, smaller wildlife parks.

What to see in Tanzania Safari?


There is no doubt that one of the things you are going to want to do is sight the Big Five, the five animals that are said to be the hardest to kill on foot, if you go all the way to Africa for an African safari. The African elephant, leopard, lion, Cape buffalo and the all too rare rhino are part of this highly prized group.


The annual migration of wildebeests is where animal populations migrate from Serengeti National Park to the Maasai Mara National Reserve’s greener pastures. This enormous migration is strong, with the number of wildebeest estimated at over 1 million, plus hundreds of thousands of other species, and the singular reason many travelers go on an African Safari in Tanzania.


The incredible number of birds that could be seen was one of the most surprising aspects on African safari. With over 1000 birds, the Grey Crowned Crane, Malachite Kingfisher, Red-and-Yellow Barbet, Nubian Woodpecker, are others you will be able to identify.


Big cats are some of the rarest and most enigmatic animals in the wild. As the home of the African Big Cat, Tanzania boasts many different species, including:

– Lion

Luckily, more than 16,000 lions live in Tanzania, more than any other single African nation, and around half of the world’s remaining wild population. Only the Serengeti lion population, estimated at about 4,000, is greater than Africa’s total lion population.

– Leopard

Leopard stalks its prey with incredible stealth, probably the most trendy of all the big cats and most elusive big cat, sometimes getting as close as ten feet from its target, undetected, before pouncing. Leopards also drag their kills up into the forest where they sleep and relax, known for their arboreal lifestyle. Leopards have been seen dragging about twenty foot up trees of animals as large as three times their height.

– Cheetah

With more than 210 cheetahs in the Serengeti ecosystem, Tanzania is one of the rare cheetah strongholds in Africa, perhaps because of its long-term commitment to conservation. It is one of the few remaining locations on earth where this incredible beast, the world’s fastest ground animal, can be seen running through the plains
