Wildlife And Zanzibar Beach

Wildlife And Zanzibar Beach

The beaches and island of Tanzania afford distinct tour experiences, from snorkeling and scuba diving, deep sea angling trips to tours of historical settlements, museums, ruins, forts, and much more.

Experience powdery soft, sandy beaches and Wildness Safari in Tanzania, all caressed by the gentle waters that is offset by the scintillating azure of the warm Indian Ocean against a backdrop of the blue skies on the horizon

Best time to visit
End of May to June : May is the mating season for wildebeest and the males do fierce battle for a mate. Throughout the rut, the journey continues as some herds head west into the Western Corridor and cross the Grumeti River.
July : The herds head towards the north of the Serengeti. The river crossings, considered by some the most exciting events of the Great Migration, usually start in July, but timing all depends on the rains.
August to October : The herds can be found in the Northern Serengeti as well as in Kenya’s Maasai Mara. Daily river crossings can be seen at the Mara and Talek rivers. This is often the base of the most exciting crossings!
End of October to November : The herds usually cross back to the Serengeti from the Mara and head towards the now fertile Ndutu Area. The herds travel fast and cover long distances in a single day. By the beginning of December, Ndutu starts seeing the herds return to calve, and for the whole process begins again.
