Arriving into Tanzania

Tanzania requires filling out a Traveler’s Health Surveillance Form within 24 hours prior to arrival. Follow this link: https://afyamsafiri.moh.go.tz/.  Once completed the traveler will receive a completion notification containing their Unique Health Code (UHC) which they will present upon arriving. If arriving directly onto Zanzibar, please use this link instead.

Additionally, all travelers are required to present a negative COVID-19 test certificate upon arrival. The test must be a Real Time Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test  or Nucleic Acid Amplification Tests (NAATs), with the sample tested within 96 hours BEFORE arrival to Tanzania.

All travelers arriving from countries experiencing variants of concern/interest or who have traveled through those countries in the last 14 days (regardless of route taken) will be subjected to Rapid tests at their point of entry a their own cost.  The Rapid test cost is $10 per traveler  (or $25 per travel if arriving directly onto Zanzibar) and can be pre-paid online when you complete your online Traveler’s Health Surveillance Form (strongly recommended to pre-pay to avoid unnecessary queue upon arrival).

Mara Under Canvas

Mara Under Canvas

Mara Under Canvas

Be impressed by the natural beauty of Northern Serengeti

Mara Under Canvas is the closest camp to the river Mara where each year enormous columns of wildebeest cross the river, negotiating the jaws of the hungry crocodiles, in order to get to the pastures on the other side in what could be considered the climax of the Great Migration.

Mara Under Canvas this luxury temporary camp is open from June to November. It allows visitors to be in the proximity of the Great Migration and to be able to explore remote areas and the beautiful settings of Serengeti with a large amount of resident fauna. The camp has only ten double tents and a family tent which assures the intimacy and exclusivity of this intense experience.

What to Experience on Family Holiday Safari, Solo travel, Group travel & Honeymoon

family holiday safari

Serengeti National Park

What to experience on family holiday safari, solo travel, group travel, honeymoon and where to go is something many people have on their bucket list. And when thinking about where to go on safari, a trip to the iconic places in Tanzania or Kenya often comes to mind.

Most people have heard of the migration of the wildebeest that happens annually in the Masai Mara in Kenya and in the Serengeti in Tanzania. This vast wildlife area has a different name in the two countries, but it is essentially the same thing with an international border running in between. A border the wildebeest don’t know exists and without a worry about passports they make their clockwise migration every year and you can watch this spectacle either in Tanzania or in Kenya whilst on safari.

Safari Extensions

Popular extension of any safari is some relaxation on one of East Africa’s many pristine seasides, or lakeside, beaches. Giving you the opportunity to indulge in watersports, explore the underwater world, immerse yourself in the culture and history, or simply read a book and chill. But starting with the beaches is also becoming increasingly more popular, with many now opting to relax on the beach first and getting rid of any potential jetlag before chasing the Big 5 and other wildlife.

Many people on family holiday safari, solo travel, group travel and honeymoon clients going on safari book a flight to Nairobi in Kenya as this is a bigger hub and more international airlines fly there which means there are more options and cheaper flights available. From Nairobi, you can either book another flight to for example Arusha or Kilimanjaro International Airport in Tanzania or fly directly to your destination in Kenya with a smaller domestic flight. Driving to your destination in the country of your choice is of course also an option and will help keep the safari cheaper if you are on a budget.

Popular National Parks in Kenya
  • Masai Mara National Park
  • Amboseli National Park
  • Tsavo National Park
  • Aberdares National Park
  • Samburu National Park
  • Mt Kenya National Park
Northern National Parks of Tanzania

In Tanzania some people use road transport if they visit the parks in the northern area of Tanzania, also called the northern circuit. But it is often a lot faster and more comfortable to catch a short flight directly to an airstrip close to your accommodation, avoiding bumpy roads, potentially crazy traffic and long hours in the car.

Parks of the northern circuit are:

  • Serengeti National Park
  • Lake Manyara National Park
  • Ngorongoro Crater
  • Tarangire National Park
  • Arusha National Park
  • Mkomazi National Park
  • Mount Kilimanjaro National Park
Visiting the other national parks in Tanzania

This parks are best best done on a flying safari as it would take a long time to drive to most of them from Arusha in the north or Dar es Salaam in the east. Parks that can be visited with a short flight from either Arusha, Kilimanjaro International or Dar es Salaam are for example:

  • Selous National Park
  • Ruaha National Park
  • Mikumi National Park
  • Gombe National Park
  • Mahale National Park
  • Kitulo National Park
  • Katavi National Park

So the most important thing for natureboundafrica is to work out which park or wildlife area you want to visit and where you want to relax before or after your wildlife safari. If you are a first-time safari goer you will most likely want to choose your destination based on the availability of the big 5 and how easy it is to see those animals. Excellent places to see the big 5 are for example the Masai Mara in Kenya and the Serengeti in Tanzania.

You can then add one or two more places to get a broader picture of the country or because you have a specific wish like:

  • Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro
  • Seeing the many elephants in Amboseli with the impressive Kilimanjaro as a backdrop
  • Trekking with the chimpanzees in Gombe or Mahale
  • Relaxing on the beaches of Lamu (Kenya) or Zanzibar (Tanzania).

If you have already been on a safari before, if it is not as important to you to see the big 5, or if you like the remoteness and wilderness of the less visited parks, you can plan your trip to the other parks and wildlife areas. Many of those offers outstanding opportunities to see wildlife, but you might have to travel a bit further. However, for your effort, you get a totally different, deeply rewarding experience.

After deciding which national park or wildlife area you want to go to and booking your best option for the international flight and your onward domestic flights depending on your destination, you will need to also book your accommodation in line with your budget and then of course any experiences you might want to add to make it the perfect safari for you.

There are a lot of options to personalize your family holiday safari and it all depends on what you enjoy doing on your holiday. Think of things like:

  • A hot air balloon trip
  • A horse riding adventure
  • Some time on the beach before or after your safari for some relaxation time
  • Rafting
  • Scuba diving
  • Yoga retreat
Accommodation

There is so much choice, especially in the popular areas like the Masai Mara and the Serengeti, that deciding what is best for you often comes down to three things; your budget, the availability at the time of your trip and if you want to be in a specific location for example to witness the migration.

Once you know which park or wildlife areas you are going to visit you can narrow the search for accommodation down to that specific location. You can also check if a specific provider offers accommodation in all the areas you intend to visit, they might offer a better deal if you book more nights in several of their lodges.

Once you have booked your flights, your accommodation and your favourite experiences to personalise your safari, Nature Bound Africa would like to wish you a ‘safari njema’, as we say here in East Africa. This is Swahili for wishing you a safe and good safari!
