Tanzania Walking Safaris

Imagine walking on the same path as an elephant or other wildlife whilst on a safari holiday. You can hear a lion roar from afar and smell the bush all around you. Walking safaris in Tanzania will awaken your senses and are one of the purest wildlife experiences. On foot, you become a part of the wildlife, rather than a spectator.

Experience the awe-inspiring adventure of a walking safari.

What You Need To Know

Walking safaris in Tanzania differ in several ways. The best time to visit will depend on the area you will be walking through and what you want to see. Tanzania has fantastic game viewing throughout the year, but some months are better than others. From December to March migrating wildebeest herds are on display in the Serengeti, a truly magnificent sight and one of nature’s greatest marvels.

The two official languages in Tanzania are Swahili and English making communication relatively easy. You can get a Swahili interpreter if you choose, but English is widely spoken.

Tanzania’s local cuisine is varied and it’s advised to sample some of the local dishes. Having said that, many hotels and restaurants provide cuisines from all over the world. Tanzanians love seafood, so freshly caught fish, shrimp or crab is bound to be on the menu.

The country is one of the safest in East Africa, but you need to be careful on the road. Even though safari areas are relatively safe, criminal activity is still reported like in any other country.

​When to go largely depends on the type of walking safari you’d like to have. If seeing the great wildebeest migration is at the top of your list, then June and July are best. However, game viewing is best in the dry season from late June to October and if the wildebeest calving season appeals to you, then January and February is good to go.

The weather in Tanzania doesn’t vary much throughout the year, with an average daily temperature of 30 degrees Celsius, dropping to about 15 degrees in the evening. The main difference between the seasons is the humidity and annual rains. The rains normally start at the beginning of April and run to the end of June. The humidity will vary throughout the year and the driest and hottest periods are in June to the end of October.
