In Tanzania, there are 17 different national parks that you can visit and sometimes it is difficult to choose where to go. The easiest way to shorten the list is to know what animals you’d like to see (from lions to rhinos, hippos, gnus, giraffes), what sceneries attract you the most (savannah, lakes, forest, baobab or acacia trees) or what additional experiences you’d like to have (like balloon ride available in Serengeti, visiting the Masai village most common in Ngorongoro, walking tour available only in Tarangire, Arusha or Kilimanjaro National Park).

Tanzania classifies its wild areas in different ways, each with different rules – meaning that the practices, and standards, of walking safaris, differ widely. We have some first-rate walking safaris in Tanzania, with great guides – chosen, as usual, by seeing them first hand.
Some of the real stars are the walking safaris done on fly-camping trips. Walks in the National Parks have to abide by the strict rules laid out by TANAPA (Tanzanian National Park Authorities); these rules have been put in place to make walking as safe as possible.
No more than six guests are able to go on a walk at any one time; and they must be accompanied by at least one TANAPA qualified armed ranger, who must stick to specific walking routes. These regulations are however relatively new to Tanzania’s national parks, and so we would only recommend walking from camps that we know have a consistent record for reliably good walking safaris and well-established guides.
Tanzania’s Game Reserves are run by a slightly more relaxed organization called the Game Division whose regulations are less clear – this has created a disparity in walking safari standards.
Walking Safaris are hugely dependent on how experienced and knowledgeable the guide is – they can, therefore, be a bit hit-and-miss. All of our recommended Camps use their own highly qualified guides who stick to rules, which have been set by their specific camp – these walking safaris are very good. So do include some walking in your Tanzania safari, but do talk to us first as experiences can vary hugely between camps.
