One of the many things that always seem to crop up on people’s bucket lists is an African safari trip. However, Africa has many different exciting Africa safari tour destinations to choose from making it hard to single out one location to visit. In this article piece of today, I want to unleash for you why you should think of putting Tanzania at the top of your list Africa tour destinations followed by Uganda, home to half of the world’s remaining mountain gorillas. These countries are open to tourists interested in Uganda gorilla trek safaris in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park & Mgahinga Gorilla National Park as part of your Uganda wildlife safaris. Similarly, Rwanda and Congo are interesting Africa safari tour/ Africa wildlife safari destinations because they offer traveller opportunities like gorilla trekking tours in Rwanda in Volcanoes National Park and Gorilla safari tours in Congo’s Virunga National Park.

Giving you a hint about these destinations does not stop me from giving you the reasons why you need to visit Tanzania.

Tanzania Has Outsized National Game Parks & Reserves

I am not really sure of what you imagine when you’re told to think about an Africa wildlife safari. Perhaps one of the things you think of when you imagine Africa safaris is looking out for a 4×4 safari van hire in Tanzania, 4×4 safari jeep car hire in Tanzania or any other 4×4 car rental in Tanzania so you enjoy sightseeing.

Oh Yes! You’re right, with its countless vast plains; Tanzania is the ideal place to visit to make those dreams a reality. A Tanzania safari will grant you the chance to witness one of the biggest ranges of national parks and game reserves in all continental Africa. With more places to visit and explore during your Tanzania tour/ Tanzania wildlife safari, you will have a more in-depth and enjoyable Tanzania safari tour experience. Each of the reserves and parks has their own selling points, so it may even be an idea to visit more than once while you are out there. After all, safaris are one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences for many people.

Witness the Great Migration

Of course, when you choose the right Africa safari tour operator like Prime Safaris & Tours Ltd to advise you about the best Tanzania safari wildlife Parks, you will not miss out on visiting a destination like Serengeti National Park; a park that hosts one of the world’s natural seven wonders; the Great Migration. You can only enjoy this experience if you go on a tour in Tanzania because you will have the chance to experience closely this Great Wildebeest Migration. This natural phenomenon occurs each year from November to March and it is when more than one million wildebeest, as well as antelopes, zebras and lot of other herbivores, travel through the Serengeti from one side to the other while on the look for water and food.

Ideally, you will want to visit around January to March time to really get the best experience. At that time, around 500,000 wildebeest are born.

It’s the best place to see lions

I won’t even guess one of the animals you expect to see during your Tanzania wildlife tour, I am sure there must be a lion on your list. And if that is the case, Tanzania is the one place you really need to consider visiting. Tanzania has one of the highest lion populations compared to those you would see on a Uganda safari tour or Kenya safari. In these other Africa countries, you may only have the chance to see a handful of lions throughout the whole of your trip or not even a chance. However, during your safari in Tanzania, this is not really something you will ever have to be concerned. It is thought, according to recent figures, that there are in excess of 16,800 lions in Tanzania.

Tanzania has the biggest concentration of wild animals

Tanzania is far beyond lions, you will be fascinated by multitudes of wildlife during your wildlife in Tanzania compared to other countries like Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda. It’s a fact that Tanzania has the biggest concentration per square km of animals in the world. So, if your dream safari consists of seeing a plethora of different wild animals in their natural habitat without that enclosed feeling that’s often present when you’re on a zoo tour group, Tanzania is a great choice.

Featured Park: Serengeti
