Viewing the Great Migration with Thomson Safaris by Andy Biggs


Tanzania is, and always has been, a safe and peaceful country. Itís often referred to as ďthe Switzerland of Africa,Ē because of its reputation for calm and stability. Youíll sense the warmth and generosity of spirit of the Tanzanian people the moment you touch down on Tanzanian soil.


But Tanzania is more than just a safe country, itís a beautiful one! From the Indian ocean to the heights of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania has a wealth of breathtaking landscapes that set the scene for an amazing trip. The people that call this amazing country home have come together to form a rich culture that is intriguing, unique, and always changing. No safari is complete without wildlife viewing, and Tanzania has some of the best in Africa.


Thomson Safaris has been sending travelers to Tanzania for more than 35 years. We consider it the best safari destination in Africa, and we also consider it a second home. This is a land with truly breathtaking landscapes, like the iconic plains of the Serengeti and the lush green floor of the Ngorongoro Crater. Itís a land filled with a staggering amount and variety of wildlife, from creatures youíve always imagined seeing on safari, to animals you may never even have dreamed of. And itís a land with an incredible diversity of peoples and cultures, all united by a warm, generous spirit.


At Thomson Safaris, we offer our guests a seamless experience and unprecedented quality control because our US office and the ground operations in Tanzania are both part of the Thomson family.
