Tanzania – The Land of Contrasts

Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Zanzibar, combine some of the world’s premier national parks with wonderful beaches and beautiful baths in the Indian Ocean. For those who want a little extra activity, we recommend a climb of Africa’s roof, Kilimanjaro. Katavi and Mahale offer our guests unique safaris where we use small exclusive lodges of the highest standard that are located with only one purpose, to offer guests a maximum experience of nature and wildlife. Ruaha is today Africa’s largest and perhaps most magnificent national park, Selous Game Reserve is Africa’s largest game reserve. Big is good. In these parks and reserves there are many interesting animals to follow on safaris. Trackers give you the opportunity to combine your journey as you wish. You travel when you want and stay away as long as you want.


Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Ngorongoro is considered a wonder of the world and is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Ngorongoro Conservation Area is located 190 km west of Arusha between Lake Manyara and Serengeti National Park. The main reason for a safari in Ngorongoro is of course the ancient volcanic crater with its exceptional wildlife. It is the world’s largest volcanic crater. The crater floor has a diameter of 19km and the walls have a drop of 610 m. The view from the crater edge is something out of the ordinary. The crater floor is filled with wildebeest, zebras, gazelles, black rhinos, hyenas and jackals to name a few of the inhabitants.

Serengeti National Park

The Greater Serengeti is the best of Tanzania in one place. Huge amounts of wildlife, dramatic landscapes and several different tribes. The Serengeti is without a doubt one of the world’s most famous national parks, perhaps best known for “the great migration” with almost one million animals moving during the year after the rains. The park is located in northern Tanzania and borders in the north on Masai Mari in Kenya. In four-wheel drive jeeps, you travel across endless grasslands with acacia trees and countless wildlife. You choose if you want to stay in a lodge or in “Hemingway style” in luxurious tents on private campsites with your own chef.


Katavi National Park is one of Tanzania’s most remote and isolated national parks and thus also one of the least visited. The park covers an area of ​​just over one million acres. Researchers here have been able to observe a greater concentration of game than in any other park in Tanzania with, for example, buffalo herds of almost 3,000 animals (thus also many predators) and large numbers of hippos.


On a long golden sandy beach by Lake Tanganyika and at the foot of the Mahale Mountains lies Greystoke Mahale Camp in its own paradise. This spectacular and isolated location is home to the world’s largest known population of chimpanzees with over 1000 individuals residing in the Mahale Mountains National Park. The camp is within walking distance of a group of about 60 individuals and thus makes the lodge one of the world’s absolute best places to observe and photograph these our closest relatives.


The park is today Africa’s largest and perhaps most magnificent national park. Still, there are still only a few visitors here and the experience of wilderness is strong. Many travelers usually claim that this is East Africa’s most beautiful national park with dramatic scenery and beautiful colorful landscapes. Ruaha is famous not least for its lion herds. Ruaha is perhaps the best place to experience a herd of the rare and endangered wild dog. Ruaha also has species such as zebra and buffalo, roan and saber antelope.


Facts about Selous Game Reserve speak for themselves, with 50,000 km2 is Selous Africa’s largest game reserve. The reserve has 50,000 elephants and over 110,000 buffaloes. Despite impressive numbers, a safari in Selous is above all a relaxing experience. Short morning safaris on foot, long lunches and lazy afternoons bird watching on the river. The fact that Selous is still a game reserve and not a national park means that it is allowed to do safaris on foot.


As the first Swedish organizer, Trackers can offer Nomad Safaris Tanzania. You get to experience this magnificent country in a way that no other organizer in Sweden can offer today. In order to give our guests a unique safari, we use small exclusive lodges of the highest standard that are located with only one purpose, to offer guests a maximum experience of nature and wildlife.
