Is Safari Better In Kenya Or Tanzania?

One of the best things about going on safari is that you are going to find plenty of amazing destinations for you to book your break in. Whilst it is great to have plenty of choice, one thing that could end up happening is that you are overwhelmed by the choices and end up not sure which way to turn. 

Two of the main destinations are Kenya and Tanzania, so, which one is better to book your safari in? Let’s take a look and see the main reasons why you might want to pick each one.

The Landmarks

Both Kenya and Tanzania have amazing places to see during your break. For Kenya it has to be Masai Mara, which is a beautiful spot full of wildlife. However, if you are thinking about taking a break in Tanzania, then you are going to find that the Serengeti is just as amazing a landmark to visit. Not only that, but you will also find Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania too, which is a rather impressive sight, along with Lake Victoria, which is the largest lake in the whole of Africa.

Food And Culture

It goes without saying that the animals are the main reason that people will travel to Kenya or Tanzania, however, these countries are so much more than that. They are beautiful places that are packed full of charm and culture, Not to mention delicious food too. It is these experiences that you have along your journey to see all the animals, that will really make your holiday, that will give you amazing memories and will ensure that you truly fall in love with everything that Tanzania and Kenya have to offer.

The Animals

This is definitely a point to Tanzania. Kenya is a smaller country, which means that there are less animals. Therefore if you want to maximise your chances of seeing hippos, giraffes, gazelles, cheetahs and any other animals, then Tanzania is a much better option for you. This is particularly true if you decide to go to the Serengeti, which is well known for offering up some of the best wildlife in the world.

The Climate

If you want a tropical climate for your break, then you are going to want to consider Tanzania over Kenya. However, that said, Kenya does have a temperate climate which may be more suited to others likes. It really does depend on the type of heat that you prefer and whether or not you are going to be okay with the rain during the wet season. 

As you can see, whilst we know that Kenya has plenty of amazing reasons to choose it for a safari, we believe that Tanzania has plenty to offer too. Even more so, whilst it is a great destination, it is more affordable then Kenya, which can be an incredibly expensive place to visit and offers you up the chance to see plenty of wonderful animals too.
