Tanzania Western Circuit Itineraries


Western Circuit Tanzania Safari Tours


Western Tanzania is made up of Katavi, Mahale Mountains, Gombe Stream and Lake Tanganyika, all unexplored and stunningly beautiful – please do click on the links to see our recommended camps and lodges in Western Tanzania, although all of our holidays are tailor made and we can easily help to arrange anything you like.
Western Tanzania is unchartered territory is relatively undiscovered and still boasts some of the largest herds of animals in Africa, totally off the beaten track, it takes five hours to reach any part of Western Tanzania, but once there the reward of beauty, wildlife and untouched nature is unrivalled.
Most people visit the western circuit to track chimpanzees in Gombe or Mahale Mountains National Park. These two chimp reserves on the shore of Lake Tanganyika offer the best chimp tracking in Africa. Getting here is expensive and time-consuming and is mostly done by chartered plane from Arusha. Instead of visiting one of the chimp reserves as an add-on to a safari in the north, you can combine it with a safari in Katavi, which is the savannah reserve in the western circuit and probably Tanzania’s least visited park. Not for lack of wildlife, though. This park offers excellent game viewing in the dry season with superb wilderness appeal, which will make you’ll feel like you own the place.
