The land of Kilimanjaro, with an area of more than 364,900 square miles, twice the size of California, offers a variety of wildlife habitats and game species unmatched by any other country in Africa. Wide diversity of altitude, climate, and terrain contrast from the arid Rift Valley of the Masailand in the north, to the fertile subtropical swamps of the Kilombero Valley, to the savannah grasslands of western Tanzania and the Serengeti. Blessed with five mountainous areas, lush river valleys and huge expanses of Miombo woodland Tanzania is home to a staggering number of species. Tanzania also boasts a well-engineered system of game reserves and national parks set aside for wildlife, among these, the largest game reserve in the world, the Selous Game Reserve is the southeastern part of the country.
Hunting in Tanzania is a must for the serious African hunter. Tanzania offers THE traditional East African safari experience. A very high level of service, honed in the German and British colonial era, coupled with unparalleled game numbers, give safaris in Tanzania unique character in the hunting world. Tanzania is the country so vividly described in the writings of Theodore Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway and Robert Ruark. Tanzania is perhaps the best choice for a general bag safari today, as well as one of the best countries for lion, leopard, and elephant. No other country in Africa can challenge Tanzania for huge buffalo and the variety of antelope species is simply incredible.
Tanzania is the only country today in which several very desirable species may be hunted. These include: Hunting the Roosevelt, or East African sable, hunting White-beared wildebeest, hunting Coke hartebeest, hunting Southern Grant gazelle, hunting Roberts gazelle, hunting Thompson gazelle, hunting Southern gerenuk, hunting Fringe-eared oryx, hunting East African suni, hunting Kirk dik dik, hunting Harvey red duiker, and hunting Ader duiker.

Some hunting concessions in the Masailand can be reached by vehicle from Arusha, but most others require the use of charter aircraft.
