Christmas time is often associated with snow, twinkling lights and family dinners, but for those seeking a different and adventurous experience, a safari in Tanzania is a fascinating and memorable choice.

This East African nation, renowned for its breathtaking landscapes and rich biodiversity, offers visitors an unconventional Christmas, immersed in wild and uncontaminated nature.


Ideal climate

During the Christmas season, Tanzania enjoys a warm and dry climate, perfect for outdoor activities. December marks the start of the short dry season, with sunny days and cool nights, ideal for exploring the national parks.

Wildebeest migration

One of the main attractions is the Great Migration, which sees millions of wildebeests, zebras and other herbivores move across the Serengeti. Although the migration generally culminates in mid-year, in December it is possible to witness the herds returning to the southern plains of the Serengeti where the births of the calves will take place between January and February.

Rich biodiversity

Tanzania is home to some of the most famous national parks and conservation areas in the world, such as Serengeti, Tarangire, Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater. These places offer the opportunity to see the “Big Five” (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo) and a host of other plant and animal species.
