The following 4 tips for the first time for a Safari tour Tanzania will help you make the most of your trip.
Pack the essentials
When packing for a safari adventure, follow the ‘less is more’ rule. Do not fill the bag with useless items and clothing. Everyone has limited luggage space on the truck, so pack the right clothes and belongings. Tanzania is hot and humid, so pack light, breathable clothing in neutral colors.
Save room for a camera and supplies, first aid kit, sunscreen, hat, lip balm, water bottle, light backpack, binoculars, shoes and swimsuit.
Go with an open mind
Tanzania safari tour is full of surprises and unexpected events, so don’t fret about things that you can’t control. It’s a wildlife park, no one can predict what to expect.
So be flexible and open-minded and enjoy what this adventurous tour has to offer. It didn’t always go as planned, maybe you don’t get to see the Big Five. Enjoy the journey and explore the wilderness while being prepared for mosquitoes and a bumpy ride.
Don’t drive alone
We strongly advise beginners against driving alone through the wild animals. If you go on a game drive or hike, make sure you are accompanied by a ranger, guide and a tracker.
To be on the safe side, the hike in particular must be carried out with a certified tour guide and a ranger. If you walk alone through an environment full of dangerous animals, you risk your life and safety.
Don’t forget to take a camera with you on the tour as there are many moments worth capturing. Once the tour is over, you can relive all the memories through photos and videos.
Keep the camera close as you never know when an animal will appear and be ready to capture the perfect photo. This tour gives you plenty of opportunities to capture stunning sunsets, breathtaking landscapes and wildlife.
Also, don’t just focus on taking photos, pause and stay in the moment to enjoy the sights and surroundings.
Before going on the Tanzania safari, make sure you have all your essential travel documents, emergency supplies, a first aid kit and other essentials. Hope you have an unforgettable safari trip with lots of great memories.
