Sometimes, you want a vacation of cultural splendors or luxuriant relaxation—a trip to a European capital, or a getaway to an idyllic Caribbean isle. But other times, you want adventure, excitement, and a little bit of edge. If that's the case, then visit Tanzania Game Parks. When you travel to Tanzania Game Parks, you can go on a safari, dine with locals, and scale Africa's highest peak.

Things Not to Miss in Tanzania Game Parks

• Going on a safari! There are many to choose from, but you can't go wrong with the Arusha, Tarangire, or Ruaha safaris.
 • Ngorongoro Conservation Area includes the massive Ngorongoro crater, formed by an extinct volcanic caldera. The wildlife preserve around the crater has lions, wildebeests, hippopotamuses, elephants, antelopes, zebras, and even endangered black rhinos.
 • Visit Serengeti National Park, perhaps the most famous wildlife preserve in the world.
 • Scale Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa and one of the most rewarding hikes in the world.

When to Go to Tanzania Game Parks

Tanzania is a country of highs and lows—it has the highest point on the continent and the lowest (Lake Tanganyika). And so the climate varies wildly within Tanzania. In the northeast, the country is mountainous and forested, and temperatures generally range between 50 and 70 degrees. Central Tanzania is a large plateau with arable plans, and the eastern shore is hot and humid.

The average annual temperature is 68 degrees, although the savannah gets hot during the summer. There are two rainy seasons that you need to account for when making Tanzania Game Parks travel plans: between October and December, and between March and May.
