As a year-round destination, Tanzania reliably delivers unique and unforgettable safari experiences in each of her distinct seasons throughout the year. With its diverse wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, and ancient cultural heritage, there is truly never a bad time to be on safari in Tanzania.
Discover the raw beauty of Tanzania on our exhilarating 10-day BIG FIVE ADVENTURE SAFARIS! Immerse yourself in her amazing people, beautiful places, and incredible wildlife, and leave with memories that will stay with you forever. After all, isn’t that what you’d expect from a journey that is often referred to as “the trip of a lifetime?”
Our ultimate 12-day EXTENDED safaris elevate the standard safari experience by offering a bit more time in the most renowned parks, and giving guests the chance to fully immerse themselves in all the beauty and excitement that Tanzania has to offer.
Guests are invited to think of our safaris as “unhurried journeys of discovery,” as we use our decades of experience to create safaris that intentionally strike the perfect balance between activity and rest, adventure and reflection. We believe that this unique cadence creates a more meaningful, enjoyable, and memorable experience for our guests.
I met my best friend Kelly in the 6th grade. We were together every chance we got—at school, weekend sleepovers. And we would always sign our notes or letters to each other, “Love, your old buddy old pal and life long friend.” We have been having adventures together for 42 years. We have been there for each other through the joys and heartbreaks of growing up, supported each other through the tough times, and have been there to cheer each other on through the milestones of life. In 2019, I asked her if she wanted to go on a Safari with me and she hesitated just for a second. I said, “You are dangerously close to saying yes, aren’t you?” She smiled and said yes. I made us matching T shirts for our trip. Our Safari with Periquito Adventures was a celebration of those 42 years of friendship. And it was by far our BEST adventure. On the very first day of the safari, we saw a large herd of elephants cross the road in front of our vehicle. I felt like I had won the lottery. Kelly cried when she saw the elephants. In fact, every time Kelly saw elephants, she cried. This Tanzanian safari was one of the peak experiences of our lives. We made memories together that we will never forget. And we still call each other YOBOPALLF.Nancy J.Tanzania
Having just finished my third African safari, I can say without hesitation that my Tanzanian safari experience is far and away my favorite! And, the delightful partnership between Wanderful Tanzania and Periquito Adventures only elevated my experience further, as they are simply the best of the best... best guides, best camps, best locations, best itinerary, best game viewing, best cultural experiences, best overall safari team, period!Jenny S.Los Angeles, CA
The animals, scenery, sunsets and all of the things you think about when you think “African Safari” are absolutely as amazing as can be! But, for me, it was my fellow travelers (my new THRIVE TRIBE), the trip leaders and guides, and the people of Tanzania that have stolen my heart and restored my soul.Stephanie J.Phoenix, AZ
As one of the people in this safari adventure with Susie I strongly agree. We are having a ball. As a photographer it’s been a dream of mine to go on safari. This has exceeded my wildest imagination.Bryan Tollefson
It has already been an incredible trip and we have another week to go! Very few other vehicles in the area and amazing wildlife at every turn. Susie has crafted a great tour agenda and our guide has an encyclopedic knowledge of the area. He takes extra care to position us for great photography.Nancy New Dumas
