Call us to talk about Game Viewing.

The main event on any safari, game drives, are particularly good in Tanzania in our opinion, due to the large and diverse numbers of animals and birds and the relatively small number of fellow tourists (if you pick the right area to visit). Many, although not all, of the lodges use open sided 4x4 vehicles with seating for either six or nine people, which means everyone gets great uninterrupted views of the scenery and wildlife.

Game drives are the main activity at most lodges in Tanzania, and you will normally do two per day at these lodges. The first sets out just after dawn and lasts for three and a half to four hours, arriving back at the lodge in time for lunch. Your second drive will typically set off an hour or two before sunset, although most are required to be back before sundown, ruling out the opportunity for Night Drives.

Game drives may be the main activity on safari and you will often spend more time on these than doing anything else but they are also THE reason most people go on safari, and with good reason - the thrill of your first lion or wild dog sighting is not to be underestimated!
