Adventure safari in Tanzania

It’s fair to say that there is adventure to be had in northern Tanzania, specifically on a Serengeti walking safar” alt=”Hiking is a drawcard in Tanzania for adventure seekers” />

Forget flying, you must drive overland and camp to experience real adventure. Not only do you need a reliable and fully kitted out 4x4 to explore the adventure attractions of the southern safari circuit properly, but you also need plenty of time, 4x4 driving confidence and a healthy dose of adventurous spirit. The key to getting deep into the seldom-explored Selous, Ruaha and Katavi parks is the ability to be self-sufficient. This should also be considered a dry season destination unless you’re hell-bent on pushing the adventure limits right off the charts.

4x4 self-drive adventures can be found around every corner

Other classic adrenalin-fuelled adventure experiences include: hot air ballooning over the migration in the Serengeti, Big Five walking safaris in one of the country’s iconic protected areas, diving with whale sharks off Mafia Island, deep sea fishing in the Pemba Channel, summiting Mount Meru and conquering Kibo peak on Kilimanjaro.

Whale sharks are prolific around Mafia Island
