Beach and safari holidays in Tanzania

Holidays to Tanzania can be an amazing combination of a superb wildlife experience and undisturbed relaxation on stunning tropical beaches. You can choose between safari holidays in Tanzania’s famous northern circuit, the wild southern and exceedingly remote western parks - game sightings rarely disappoint. Watch dramatic river crossings during the great Serengeti migration or track chimpanzees in Mahale Mountains National Park! Afterwards, why not add some relaxing Tanzania beach holidays to your trip? Hopping on a light aircraft in the morning, you can already be on the country’s beautiful coast in the afternoon.

Please note that our beach holidays to Zanzibar are listed separately because there are so many options for travellers on this island.

The ideas for beach and safari holidays in Tanzania that we’ve listed below range from introductory three-night stays to two-week trips. Many of them can easily be combined with each other, especially trips to Tanzania’s northern parks as distances here are generally short. If you decide to go on Tanzania safari holidays here, you should consider booking a privately guided safari – these work really well in the north.
