Luxury Holidays in Tanzania

It’s not often you can enjoy such a variety of holiday experiences in one country alone – but in Tanzania it’s possible. From wondrous wildlife spotting in the Serengeti to escaping the hustle and bustle with a beachside break, you’ll find it all here. On a luxury holiday to Tanzania with Lightfoot Travel, we can customise an itinerary entirely to your needs.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a break to Tanzania without the epic wildlife. The country’s main draw is undoubtedly the chance to see one of the most unbeatable spectacles of the world – the great migration. Watch as herds of zebra and wildebeest move across the plains, often pursued by a range of predators, facing croc-filled waters and a grueling journey over the Serengeti.

By night, you can sleep among nature in a luxury lodge or tented camp, where the sounds of the bush will lull you to sleep.

Less explored, the Selous Reserve is one of the largest and most important game reserves in Africa. Located in a remote region south of Dar es Salaam, what you will see here is well worth the effort. The Selous is  full of tangled jungles, tourist-free plains, meandering hippo and croc-filled rivers. Here you can go on walking safaris, boat safaris and fly camping trips up the Rufiji River, with superb guides to accompany you.

After your safari adventures you can head east to the coast. As well as being one of Africa’s greatest safari destinations, on the country’s coast, there’s just as much to enjoy, with world-class snorkelling and diving on offer – in particular there’s the chance to spot an elusive whale shark among the other animals you’ll see hiding among the reef. There are endless watersports for those looking to keep active, including kayaking and kite surfing.

If that all sounds a little too challenging, take things at a slower pace with some sunbathing, sipping a cocktail by the pool at one of the luxury beachside hotels, or sampling some of the fresh seafood on offer.

Whether you’re looking for your dream honeymoon, a family wildlife adventure or some laid-back book and beach time, contact us for expert advice and a tailor-made Tanzania itinerary.
