Tanzania safaris – A safari is a Swahili word meaning journey, the language spoken in all countries of East Africa. Your safaris into Tanzania starts with Serengeti Joy Tours. When you book our safaris you will be met at the airport on time of your arrival and you will be taken to a hotel to receive a short briefing about your next day trip. All of our Tanzania safaris are offered in a well-maintained, clean Toyota 4×4 safari land cruiser, driven by an experienced local safari guide who will leave you with lots of experience with wonder and excitement. On safari you will search for the African ‘Big Five’ – buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhino – and will watch at astonishment at grass-covered huge savannas, extinct volcanoes and exceptional birds. You will see animals, landscapes and flowers; you will get together with the local people and taste the local food.

To get you close with nature and its animals we arrange walking safari inside the parks or at the outskirts. Inside the park you will be escorted by an armed park ranger who will show you tracking techniques and teach you about the fauna and flora of our country.
A bird watching safari in the bush of Tanzania is a great way to see birds and animals from a new perspective. A half day walking in Game Reserve provides an excellent opportunity to photograph water birds and common animals coming closer to you.
Another safari option for adventurers is to explore Tanzania on horseback ride. You will not be detected by wild animals and should be able to get very close to them.
Floating in a silent hot-air balloon over the vast plains of the Serengeti and see the animals from the air. This option is in particular popular in the Serengeti where you can see the sun rise over the savannas. Often a balloon trip is followed by a champagne bush breakfast.
