Overview: Top Destinations Tanzania

Tanzania has four safari circuits (the popular Northern Safari Circuit, the rugged Southern Safari Circuit, the western circuit - famous for its primate wildlife and the costal circuit - the beach paradise!), and each one of them, in its own right, would make Tanzania a top wildlife destination. The popular Northern circuit with the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater offers one of the best classical safaris in Africa, especially if timed with the annual wildebeest migration. Most first time visitors to Tanzania opt to visit the Northern Circuit that includes the incredible Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, and Tarangire National Park ; however, travelers wishing to avoid large groups of tourists will find the reserves in the southern part of Tanzania remote, rugged and vast.
