If looking for a 6 day safari in Tanzania then that is just about the right time you should be spending on a wildlife safari tour in Tanzania.

6 Days Safari Tanzania, where to visit?6 days Tanzania safari elephants

The six day safari tour in Tanzania is firstly great because it includes all the highlights of a wildlife safari in Northern Tanzania, including a visit to Tarangire National Park, The Serengeti National Park, The Ngorongoro Crater as well as the smaller but beautiful Lake Manyara National Park. This offers you a great opportunity to spot a lot of animals in their natural settings but also a great chance to spot the Big Five in what we can confidently term as a ‘Big 5 Safari in Tanzania’. For the bird watchers this is also a great package because all the parks are great places to spot birds and Lake Manyara national Park can be picked as one of the birding hot spots in East Africa if not in Africa at large.

6 Days Safari Tanzania, Where to Stay

Accommodation during this 6 days Tanzania tour is scheduled at some nice hand picked midrange to Semi-luxury lodges and tented camps ( comfort level), all of them clean, safe and with great food and friendly staff, but you can also be offered the same 6 day Tanzania safari package while staying at cheaper mid-range places where available or even in upgraded standard luxury lodging, or the top market / high end lodges and tented camps depending on where you prefer to stay and your budget.

The same 6 days package can be customized with Zanzibar beach extension just like our Tanzania safari Zanzibar packages.
