Western Tanzania – welcome to YOUR safari adventure
Western Tanzania consists of the national parks Gombe, Katavi, Mahale and Lke Tanganyika. It is wild, remote and almost untouched! One of Tanzania’s less travelled regions that is definitely located off-the beaten-track than the standard touristic routes. This part of Tanzania is impressively beautiful and relatively undiscovered. It boasts some of Africa’s largest animal herds and is home to wild chimpanzees. However, its inaccessibility and the high costs to travel here, make it a unique and exclusive travel destination.
Flights to Western Tanzania only operate twice a week – on Mondays and Thursdays. You can either fly from Arusha on a four-hour shared flight. Or, alternatively from Dar es Salaam via Ruaha National Park with a night in Ruaha before connecting further west. But it is definitely worth the journey as Western Tanzania will reward you with its astonishing beauty, its rich diversity of wildlife and its untouched nature that is definitely unrivalled. The best time to visit is the dry season from June to October.
