5 Questions About 6-Day Tanzania Safaris

Is it recommended to do a 6-day safari in Tanzania?

Going on a Tanzanian safari for at least six days is highly recommended. It helps you get used to the daily routine and experience the nature fully. You never know what you might see each day, so it's worth the time and effort to make the trip. Since traveling to Tanzania from outside Africa can take a long time and cause jetlag, it's best to spend enough time there.

 

On a six-day safari, you can stay at different places and get away from the crowded spots visited on shorter safaris.

"What to Experience on a 6-Day Safari Adventure in Tanzania?"

The Northern safari circuit in Tanzania offers several 6-day tour options, giving you the flexibility to explore different attractions. A 6-day trip allows for a comfortable visit to the well-known Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater. While many visitors go on full- or half-day trips to the Crater, it's worthwhile to spend several days in the Serengeti. Depending on the season and the wildebeest migration, you might choose to explore areas beyond the busy Seronera region of the park.

 

The Western Corridor and the area south of the Mara River don't have large hotels like the central region. For variety, you can also include a visit to the scenic Lake Manyara National Park in the Rift Valley, or Tarangire National Park, known for its large elephant herds.

 

For a different safari experience, the Southern circuit is a great choice. Ruaha National Park stands out as a gem in the south, with some of the best Tanzanian guides working there. A walking safari in Ruaha is highly recommended. Additionally, a stay in Ruaha can be combined with a few nights in Nyerere National Park (formerly Selous Game Reserve), where boat safaris provide an exciting alternative to traditional game drives. Mikumi National Park, on the way to the wilder southern parks, serves as an excellent stopover for road safaris, although it's seldom included in fly-in itineraries.

 

What type of accommodation should I anticipate?

The tourism industry in Tanzania offers a wide range of accommodation options to suit every type of traveler. Whether you're on a tight budget or looking to splurge on a luxury holiday, Tanzania has something for you. Accommodations range from basic budget options on the outskirts of parks and reserves to mid-range choices inside the parks. You can find larger hotels with great views or small tented camps for a back-to-nature experience. For those with a larger budget, there are luxurious boutique lodges with stunning designs and top-notch service.

Which animals can I expect to see?

A 6-day safari in Tanzania's Northern Circuit parks, especially Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, offers a great chance to see the Big Five – lions, buffaloes, elephants, leopards, and rhinos. You might spot cheetahs, hyenas, jackals, as well as a variety of antelope, warthogs, and giraffes. If you visit Ruaha or Nyerere, you might even see wild dogs.

How much will 6 Day safari cost?

It is difficult to put an actual price on a Tanzanian 6-day safari. There are many variables determining the cost. Expect a starting price of US$1,200 per person for a 6-day budget tour and luxury tours start at about US$2,500 per person. Before booking a package, it makes sense to get a few quotes. If you don’t like the idea of long bumpy rides, you might want to book a fly-in safari. However, flights generally add to the overall cost, and most fly-in tours use top-end accommodation, which puts them in the luxury end of the market.

 

Road safaris can also be graded in terms of comfort level. Some use basic budget accommodation outside the parks. Some opt for mid-range hotels in the parks. Others opt for top-end luxury designer lodges and tented camps. Private tours are generally slightly pricier than shared tours, and this is even more so for single travelers. If you want to see the great migration, you probably have to travel in the high season, but if that isn’t a priority, you could consider saving some money by traveling in the off season.

 

The low season mostly corresponds with the rainy months, but rainfall is seldom continuous for days and there are many positives in traveling at this time. Aside from getting good deals, the landscape is stunning and there is an abundance of healthy baby animals. Most of all, lodges are often half-empty and there are fewer vehicles out on game drives.”
