Family Activities in Tanzania
Why plan a family holiday to Tanzania
Leave the iPad and Xbox at home because they will come in second while on vacation in an ultimate bucket list destination like Tanzania. Not only does this easily-accessible country see the majestic Great Migration move through the vast plains of the Serengeti, it is also home to the unique environment of the Ngorongoro Crater, northern Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park, and Africa’s largest reserve, Selous Game Reserve. In absolute contrast, the white sand beaches of Zanzibar offer the perfect beach compliment to a bush safari and give families the opportunity to be thrilled from sunrise to sunset.

The greatest wildlife spectacle on earth awaits you and your family in Tanzania! The annual Great Migration sees over 2 million wildebeest and antelope migrate from the Masai Mara to Serengeti National Park in search of lush grazing grounds. One for the bucket list, your family can witness the migration from the months of November to August each year.
Big 5 Safaris
Tanzania’s parks are home to a diverse array of wildlife from herds of up to 300 elephants in Tarangire National Park to the thriving lion population in the Ngorongoro Crater. In addition to traditional game drives, families can explore this safari mecca’s parks on foot and by boat.
Hot Air Balloon Safaris
Floating above Serengeti National Park on a hot air balloon flight is a memory your family will cherish forever.
