The #1 Safari Destination in Africa is…

Tanzania safari companies recently celebrated an honor that was two years in the making. According to the acclaimed tourism site, Tanzania has been voted the best safari country in all of Africa, not just the northern safari circuit.

Everyone Weighed In

It took two years of in-depth analysis by site researchers, but the results are official. Over 3,000 reviews and counting have come to the consensus that this country is the must-see African safari destination.

The researchers were comprehensive in their work, collecting more than 1,000 tourist reviews from 53 countries and adding 756 reviews from guidebook authors and other travel experts to the mix.

The combined reviews gave Tanzania safari companies 4.8 out of five stars. Why?

Here’s what the reviewers had to say:

  • Superb wildlife viewing in top-notch national parks, including Unesco World Heritage Sites
  • The annual great migration from Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya
  • Authentic African wilderness that is protected, yet untamed and untouched by development
  • A wide range of budget, mid-range and luxury safari options
  • Beach holiday extensions on Zanzibar Island
  • Best chimp tracking of Africa in two mountainous national parks
  • Option to extend the safari holiday by climbing Africa’s highest mountain
  • Direct flights from various international locations make the northern and southern safari circuits accessible
  • Politically stable and generally safe country overall

While 42% of the reviews came from first-time travelers, the experts who have been to different areas of Africa multiple times consistently gave Tanzania safari companies five-star ratings.

Generating Word Clouds full of Buzz

The biggest reason for Tanzania’s destination-oriented popularity is the fact that so many experiences are offered in one country.

Tourists can expect to see:

  • Wildlife on the open plains – a picture classically associated with an African safari that doesn’t disappoint
  • The great zebra and wildebeest migration
  • An up close and personal view of one of the largest craters in the world from a campsite on the crater’s edge
  • The summit of Mount Kilimanjaro
  • Encounters with the Maasai
  • Kite surfing while on a beach excursion

All of this only scratches the surface of the open and warm culture that exists here. Tourists are drawn to southern Africa not only for its beauty, but to see sustainable tourism at work in the lives and communities of this peaceful country.

Tourist dollars do more than just give you access to a personal piece of the beauty surrounding you; the money you put toward this once-in-a-lifetime trip supports the men, women, and children that call Tanzania home.

The recognition from proves that tourism can be both socially and environmentally impactful, and that impact can be universally positive. Our country stands as a model for environmentally-conscious tourism around the world.

Speaking of once-in-a-lifetime; perhaps the most telling statistic from the review is that 37% of the people contributing to the data analysis have visited Tanzania more than five times. That fact proves northern Africa has a hold that doesn’t let go.
