This could be the ultimate Bucket List trip for some people. At the Bucket List Company, we have always included a small add-on Safari at the end of our Kilimanjaro trips. But some people don’t want to climb a mountain first – they just want the Ultimate Safari Experience. On this trip, we have included some of the best Safaris that Tanzania has to offer, including a trip to the Serengeti during the annual migration. 

This trip will visit the Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara, the Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti. 

Although, we can never guarantee seeing the Big 5, with this amount of choice it is going to be as close as you are ever going to get! 

If you are travelling all the way to Tanzania, you would be a fool not to add on some extra time and head to Zanzibar to check out the white sandy beaches and relax after your ultimate safari adventure! 

If you would like to visit Tanzania but don’t want to climb Kilimanjaro just yet, then this could be the perfect trip for you.

  • Do I need a visa to enter Tanzania?

    Yes, you can apply online for your visa but we recommend getting it on your arrival in Tanzania.


  • Do I need any vaccinations to enter Tanzania?

    We aren’t certified to give medical advice so always recommend you consult your doctor or a travel doctor, as they will know which vaccinations you have had already and any additional ones necessary for your trip. You can also take a look here for travel vaccination information and advice on bringing medication into the country.


  • What is the accommodation used on this trip?

    You will be staying in lodges and tented camps on a twin-share basis unless you opt for single occupancy on the trip builder! 


  • What money should I bring?

    The local currency in Tanzania is the shilling. Major credit cards are accepted at hotels and most lodges and camps “in the bush”. There are a number of ATM machines in major citities. US dollars, Euros and travelers checks are readily accepted, but small denominations are recommended for cashing at lodges and camps. Changing money at banks can be very time consuming, but there are other authorized dealers or Bureau de Change.
