Tanzania’s northern circuit is undoubtedly the most popular of all four points of the compass in Tanzania.
The north is where you’ll find such world-famous landmarks as the sprawling Serengeti, the iconic Ngorongoro Crater, and the highest mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro.

The eastern circuit of Tanzania is the coastal region with the Indian ocean, meaning you will find more cities and settlements along this circuit..
The most famous draw of eastern Tanzania, of course, are the spice islands of the Indian ocean – Zanzibar being the crown jewel among them.
Chapwani | Chumbe
Lazy Lagoon | Mafia
Mnemba | Pemba
Bagamoyo | Dar es Salaam
Mkomazi | Saadani

The southern circuit of the country has more than its fair share of incredible sights to see.
One word that can be used to describe the southern circuit is ‘sprawling’. Ruaha and Nyerere combine to over 50,000 km2 of safari landscape.
Mikumi | Nyerere
The western circuit is the domain of tall mountains, lonely lakes, and remote locations.
The biggest draw of western Tanzania is that it is one of the few locations in the world where you can see chimpanzees in the wild.
