Tanzania has several national parks within its borders teeming with various wildlife species. The Major safari destinations in Tanzania are located in the Northern region and these include: Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanganyire National Park and Lake Manyara National Park.
lake Manyara is situated on the East African Rift, Ernest Hemingway called it the loveliest lake in Africa. Although best known for its large baboon population and tree climbing lions, the park is also home to hippos giraffes and elephants as well as over 300 species of birds including flamingos.
What to wear on a Tanzania Safari
While on a safari to Tanzania, dressing accordingly is more of a safety kind of thing than comfort. First and fore most avoid bright colored clothes especially blue or black navy blue and black. These colors tend to attract the tsetse flies, so what you want to focus on is the khakis greens Browns which are basically the earth tones. These colors make hard to recognize dirt and are less attractive to tsetse flies. Never the less you could wear white but you’re gonna be really dirty because it is so dusty on a Tanzania safari.
We also recommend that you stay away from the short shorts and tank tops, the more skin show is the more feed there is for the mosquitoes, tsetse flies and other little bugs not forgetting the Sun since the sun is quite very hot near the equator, you can get burned very quickly.
Sleeves that roll and trousers that zip off are the best because when it does get really hot during the day you may want a little more breeze but it’s nice to be able to cover up too for the bugs and intense sun.
Also acquire a round billed hat because it protects your head, ears and back your neck from the direct Sun, it is very important to have one. The weather in Tanzania depends on the season you’re coming. If you visit on a safari to Tanzania in August or September it gets really hot during the day but it can cool off a little bit in the evening.
