Tanzania's Northern Safari Circuit includes some of the most famous and remarkable sights in the world, such as the annual Wildebeest Migration and the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater.
Tanzania has the highest animal diversity in sub Saharan Africa. It has a higher percentage of its area dedicated to National Parks, Game Reserves, Forest Reserves and Game Controlled Areas than any other country in Africa. Tanzania is one of the few countries in Africa where game is also found outside of protected areas. The fees that tourists pay when visiting Tanzania directly contribute to to the running of the reserves and the protection of the wildlife within.
There are a variety of different NGO conservation projects in Tanzania, some of which invite visitors to help by taking part in surveys. For example the Wild Dog Watch Campaign and Cheetah Watch Campaign surveys run by TAWIRI (Tanzania Wildlife Research Institute), F.Z.S. (Frankfurt Zoological Society) and W.C.S (World Conservation Society). There is a lot of data from northern Tanzania, but there is a real need for information from southern Tanzania.
Wild Things provides the logistical support for the Selous Lion Project. In addition clients visiting Selous are encouraged to make a $10 per person per day donation to help this project Selous Lion Project if you are interested in this project or would like to donate. Please contact us if you are interested in this project or would like to donate.

All the Parks visited are really wonderful, especially Ruaha and the "king" Katavi that worth absolutely the long trip (at least in our point of view). Yahaya and Salim are like two friends.

The programme was excellent and we saw masses of game, less a leopard! So, entirely happy customers. Thank you for your efficient handling of the whole trip.
