It is said that Tanzania is one of the last great places left on Earth. The plains of the Serengeti stretch out before you and the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro rises like a beacon on the horizon. Tanzania is also defined by its varied cultures, with tribal influences playing a vital role in its essential flavour. On luxury holidays to Tanzania, there is nothing quite like embarking on a guided walk with a Maasai guide or a trekking expedition with the Hadzabe tribesmen, some of Africa’s last remaining hunter-gatherers.
Our Tanzania luxury holidays are expertly curated by our Africa Specialists here in OROKO who have visited this wonderful destination many times. When you book luxury holidays to Tanzania with OROKO, they will recommend the best lodges and camps as well as unique experiences that you would simply not find online yourself. Our first-hand knowledge and long-standing relationships with iconic African lodges mean that we can provide excellent value. On our Tanzania luxury holidays, we’ll ensure your itinerary features the best wildlife tours, game drives and exclusive lodges. OROKO are also committed to working with ‘conservation first’ suppliers who practise sustainable tourism.
POCKET GUIDE TO TANZANIA
Venture into the wildlife-rich plains of northern Tanzania on a luxury holiday to Ngorongoro. Once a towering and active volcano, the Ngorongoro Crater provides a fertile landscape for a range of animals to roam with one of the most marvellous backdrops in the world framing them. From the base, where Africa’s “Big Five” can be found, the abundant grasslands slope upwards to meet the rim of the crater, where visitors can gaze down at the plains below.
Derived from the Maasai word “serengit”, meaning “endless plains”, the Serengeti’s 1.5 million hectares of savannah is one of the world’s most celebrated wildernesses. Prepare to be blown away by the varied wildlife as you search for The Big Five – the African Lion, elusive African Leopard, Cape Buffalo, stunning African Elephant and endangered Rhinoceros. The annual migration of over one and a half million wildebeests and half a million zebras, with their predators in tow, is an extraordinary sight.
Zanzibar’s idyllic coast is the perfect way to finish off any Tanzanian adventure in pure beach bliss. Tropical flora and fauna edge beaches of pristine white sands, lapped by the warm Tiffany-blue waters of the Indian Ocean in this oceanside sanctuary. After days spent immersed in some of the world’s most celebrated wildernesses, experiencing thrilling game drives, wildlife encounters and unbridled adventure, settle into the sugar-white sands, with a drink in hand, at your luxury resort.
Many of us at OROKO have summited the mighty Kilimanjaro and are on hand to share our expertise and create the adventure trip of a lifetime. One of the Seven Summits, climbing Kilimanjaro is on many people’s bucket-list. As you begin in the Tanzanian rainforest, you will climb at a slow and steady pace. Marvel at views of Mount Kenya, and the plains beneath you as you step above the clouds. Your early morning summit will be a moment you never forget as you watch the African sunrise 5,895 metres above sea level.
