  • Rainer and Joyce from Singapore travelled to TanzaniaDear Frances, thank you for organising our trip for us to Tanzania.  All guides were knowledgeable and attentive and did a great job with ensuring that our questions and requests were addressed. It clearly shows that Safari Consultants understood our particular wishes and needs for this trip and everything was just exactly what we needed. So well done to you, Frances and thank YOU for putting together a trip of a lifetime for us. We think this will not be the last time we will see Tanzania.Rainer and Joyce from Singapore travelled to Tanzania

Wildlife regions and attractions in Tanzania

Generally, when planning a safari through Tanzania it is important to remember a couple of points relating to the ‘status’ of land protection. In Tanzania, ‘National Park’ status demands the highest protection to an area, and although there are odd instances where different rules may apply, in the main you will be restricted to on-road driving during the day. Walking will be limited and night drives will not be available. Game Reserves offer slightly less protection to the environment and, historically, were the areas in which hunting safaris took place. Today, some game reserves such as the Selous, have non-hunting designated areas where photographic safaris take place. Walking will be available and, in some instances, so too will night drives or river safaris. Conservation Areas offer the least protection and it is normal for there to be human settlement within the area, here the Conservation status is in place purely to restrict ‘mass development’.
