About 'The Best Tanzanian Safari'

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 Serengti during the annual migration. 

This trip will vist 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 will 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.

Reviews about the The Best Tanzanian Safari trip

Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say:

“I just nicely got back from Peru with The Bucket List Company. It was an absolutely incredible trip – I booked it and went on my own, met some lovely people and had the experience of a lifetime. 

I also had the opportunity to go on trips outside of the main trek, which just added to the whole experience. I would highly recommend The Bucket List Company to anyone, and can’t wait to book my next trip!”

Laura Trimble Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu The Bucket List Company Reviews

“Just returned from a fantastic trip to rooftop of Europe with these guys. Great trip with a great group. I highly recommend the Bucket List Company.”

Ross Tomkins Mount Elbrus climb The Bucket List Company Reviews

“Just returned from my first The Bucket List Company (“TBLC”) group holiday, diving in beautiful Gozo and I was not disappointed. I was happy with the information provide before the trip and found it to be very helpful. The whole trip was wonderfully organised and left me without a worry in the world. TBLC is great for a group of like minded (solo) travellers to travel and explore together. I’ve made some friends that I’ll be keeping in touch with. 

Gozo was friendly, stunning, had great food and provided great diving locations full of aquatic life and filled with one amazing experience after another. The dives were arranged locally by Ritual Dives, with amazing instructors whose enthusiasm, knowledge and passion for Gozo and diving simply rubs off on you. They also managed to get the entire group their PADI Open Water certificates and two of us also went on to obtain our PADI Advanced Open Water certificates all in the same week. The trip ended on a high with fun dives which included a wreck dive, plus a night dive for the Advanced divers.

I am so glad to have gone on this amazing fun adventure with Keith and TBLC. Being able to pay in instalments and having flights included in the price makes TBLC even more appealing. I’m already planning my next TBLC adventure; but Gozo definitely deserves another visit. Can’t wait to return and dive again with Ritual and my new friends.”

J Gozo Diving Trip The Bucket List Company Reviews

“The Bucket List Company never fails to impress! Whether trekking to Everest Base Camp or Scuba Diving in Gozo, they have the skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to make every trip unforgettable.”

Richard Whybrow Gozo Diving Trip The Bucket List Company Reviews

“Went to Morocco with The Bucket List Company. Not only was it an amazing trip it was lead by an amazing company. Everything was sorted for us from the flights to accommodation. Having a UK leader with us the whole time made the trip effortless. 

Having someone with experience of the country and the trip certainly made it effortless. I would not hesitate recommending or using this company again myself.”

Andy Simpson Morocco The Bucket List Company Reviews

“I recent went on the Sahara Trek and it was one of the best times of my life. That sounds so cliche but it’s the easiest way for me to describe it.

The Bucket List Company made the whole experience stress free. I highly recommend what these guys are doing!”
