Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa, offering the visitor an array of splendid sights across many contrasting landscapes. From Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa, to the vast plains of the world famous National parks; The Serengeti, The Ngorongoro Crater, and the spectacular Lake Manyara. The huge abundance of wildlife makes this an unforgettable safari destination. Three great lakes, Lake Victoria, Lake Tanganyika and Lake Malawi form some of the country’s borders, while 800kms of pristine, coconut palm filled coastline borders The Indian Ocean. The sun-drenched, long white sandy beaches of Zanzibar and Pemba Island is a true tropical paradises.
At 3 degrees below the equator and the highest mountain in Africa at 5895m, the base of this free standing marvel sweats it out in the steamy plains of Tanzania, while the summit protrudes through the clouds being permanently ice-capped. Any reasonably fit person can reach the summit of ‘Kili’, and there are several routes available. You will need a minimum of 5 days for the hike, passing through tropical rain forest, heath land and alpine desert, finally reaching the permanent glaciers and the summit – Uhuru Peak. After the hard work of the climb, and the exhilaration of achievement, what better way to reward yourself than with a safari to the famous Serengeti plains, or a relaxing beach holiday on exotic Zanzibar Island?
A true, natural wonder of the world, Ngorongoro was once a giant mountain before a volcanic eruption caused a 164km collapsed land mass, resulting in the world’s largest crater. Considered one of the most beautiful wildlife havens left on earth, the Ngorongoro crater’s vast amphitheatre is teeming with game. This famous world heritage site is home to an awe-inspiring array of creatures, from black maned lions, some of Africa’s last black rhino, to countless flamingos causing the soda lakes to turn pink!
The Serengeti National Park
The internationally famous Serengeti National Park offers a safari experience of a lifetime. This is one of the few remaining game parks where wildlife roams in enormous herds. The Great Migration in the Serengeti is a phenomenon that is beyond description as some 2 million wildebeest and zebra migrate north-west across the vast plains during the dry season, returning to the southern Serengeti as the rains falls from December to March. These animals are relentlessly tracked by predators, often preying on the sick and weak as they migrate in a clockwise fashion each year between the Masai Mara in Kenya, and the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The spectacles of great herds of game attempting to cross the crocodile infested waters is a once in a life time opportunity.
Lake Manyara National Park
A place of unsurpassed and diverse beauty, Lake Manyara National Park is one of the most spectacular settings in Africa and comprises savannah grasslands on the edge of the Great Rift Valley. Two thirds of the park is dominated by the slightly alkaline Lake Manyara. Some special sights include the vast numbers of flamingos that flock to the lake every year, and the entire pride of tree climbing lions.

Hi Joan - We have arrived home safely - with just a little jet lag. Your guidance and expertise in planning this trip was invaluable. The trip exceeded all of my expectations!! I would not have changed anything. It would be difficult to pick out the best part of the trip - in that each day was so special. Rob and Heath were exceptional and a great part in making the trip so special. Londolozi was amazing. I'm not sure who we have to thank for our special Anniversary treat of lunch in the tree house; but thank you, thank you, thank you!! It still brings tears to my eyes thinking of the it!! We started the trip by saying "if" we go back to Africa only for it to be quickly changed to "when" we go back to Africa. So until next time, I thank you again for making this such a special experience!!
We were a group of three couples traveling to South Africa for the first time. We have traveled to Italy, Cuba, Mexico and other locations together and had arranged to stay in a house outside of Cape Town on our own. Redfoot Safaris was introduced to us by a friend in Phoenix that had a great experience in 2017. We communicated with Rex by email and phone and were impressed by his patience as none of us had ever been on a Safari and we had lots of questions. Rex arranged for us to have two full day tours of Cape Town and the surrounding area and we were so impressed with our guide that we engaged him for another full day. Upon arrival at Rattray on Mala Mala we could not believe how comfortable and luxurious the facilities were and the staff and their service was impeccable. Our guide, Garrett, was fantastic and a wealth of knowledge. We were exposed to a great number of animals and learned so much about their lives and their environment. It was both an educational and relaxing break and our photos and memories will be enjoyed for years to come. We highly recommend letting Redfoot make the arrangements so that the total experience can be enjoyed even though it is far from home. We would love to return and repeat the entire experience.
Our trip was just perfect - spent three days touring Cape Town and surroundings with our guide, George Meyer, who was fantastic. Other than our pick-up time, nothing was set in stone, and George allowed each day to unfold as it happened. We got to see everything on our list - and then some. From there we headed to MalaMala for a couple days safari, which were amazing - the accommodations at Rattray's were beautiful, and we saw more wildlife than we were expecting. Our safari guide was knowledgeable, friendly, and perfectly suited for our group. All details were taken care of by Redfoot/Rex, including being met at the Johannesburg airport, which was a huge help on our way home! Can't say enough about Rex, George, and MalaMala. Loved the trip!!
