The West – desolate, deserted, unexplored, hard to reach but incredibly special – for those more intrepid travelers, flying into Katavi or Mahale in Western Tanzania is the ultimate in remote luxury. Walk with chimpanzees or even spend a few nights on an island in the middle of Lake Victoria, fishing, relaxing, and marveling at how big the world is.
The Tanzanian Coast is typical of the Indian Ocean, with soft white sandy beaches, which stretch for miles without another soul to be seen, and crystal clear warm waters – with exceptional diving and snorkeling.
Western Tanzania Safari Destination

The habitats of these areas are a merger between Western Africa and East Africa therefore the cultures, rainfall and flora are unique to this small area. The western circuit is seldom experienced on its own but is more often an addition to either the southern or northern circuits, or both.
National Parks in this circuit includes Gombe, Mahale, Rubondo and Katavi National Park.
