Top 10 Best Safaris From Mwanza city

Mwanza city is the best city to start your safari in Tanzania as it's not only a 2hrs drive to the World famous Serengeti National Park... but also a good starting point for trips to the Lake Victoria islands including Rubondo National park, Ukerewe, Ukara, and others.
If you are looking for a once-in-lifetime safari experience to Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, we highly recommend starting your safari from Mwanza city and end in Arusha as this will allow you to explore other parts of the Serengeti that can't be easily reached from Arusha side, the rarely visited part of the Serengeti includes the western corridor which is part of the Great Migration during the dry season June to early July, the Grumet River famous for its huge crocodiles and the extensive black clay plains.
Mwanza, also known as the "Rocky city" is the second-largest city located in northwest Tanzania on the southern edge of Lake Victoria. It is a gateway to all East African countries including Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi. Regular flights from Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro (JRO), Nairobi, Entebbe are available.
