“The goal of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for a newer and richer experience.”

Our Tanzania Adventure Tours and Safaris

Are you looking for an active Tanzania safari trip? Do you dream of exploring Tanzania outside of a safari vehicle? This incredible country offers thrilling active walking, biking and trekking adventures that get you out of the land cruiser and give you the opportunity to explore the wilderness and meet local communities on a much deeper level. If this sort of adventure safari in Tanzania interests you, you may also like to check out our Guide to Mount Kilimanjaro National Park; if you’re looking for a slightly more relaxed adventure, however, read more about our tailor-made safaris in Tanzania.

A Tanzania walking safari with a professional guide or ranger is one of the best ways to learn about the trees, plants and birds of Tanzania as well as encountering the animals on their own terms. Trekking to the icy summit of Mount Kilimanjaro — the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest freestanding mountain on earth — is an exhilarating experience which can be enjoyed by anyone with a reasonable level of fitness. For those who prefer an easier hike, how about climbing an active volcano? Known by the Maasai as the “Mountain of God”, Ol Doinyo Lengai is nothing short of spectacular.

You choose what happens on your Tanzania adventure safari. Why not explore the jungle of Mahale Mountains National Park and get up close to its chimpanzee community. Mahale Mountains is not only an incredibly scenic location on the distant shores of Lake Tanganyika, but it also happens to be the best location in Africa for chimpanzee tracking. In fact, this is almost certainly the ultimate primate experience one can find anywhere in the world, not just in Tanzania!

If you are looking to connect with the people of Tanzania, you will have the opportunity to go on a morning hunt with the Hadzabe, one of the last hunter-gatherer tribes on earth. Follow the bushmen while they are tracking animals with their traditional bows and arrows and witness the tribe’s hunter-gather lifestyle. A thrilling experience!

For the ultimate immersive cultural experience on your African adventure tour, you can spend an entire day with the Maasai and get a deep, authentic insight into their lives. Accompany them for 24-hours while you learn how to milk goats and cows in one of their settlements. Male guests can collect healing plants, slaughter a goat, and prepare the goat over a fire. Female guests will accompany the Maasai women collecting firewood and repairing Maasai houses. Finish the day with a special goat bonfire celebration and dances. During the day, you will be accompanied by a Maasai guide who will explain the deeper meaning of Maasai life — this is an experience you will never forget! And if you are up for it after a full day, you will even have the opportunity to sleep in a Maasai home and to have dinner and breakfast the Maasai way! Find out more about the Maasai and the other people of Tanzania and browse our range of Ol-Lerai Africa safari.

If you’re visiting Zanzibar, explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Stone Town, enjoy the flavors on a spice plantation and go snorkeling at snow-white sandy beaches!
