Tanzania gay safari tour Witness the majesty of the Serengeti on this all-gay safari. Our Tanzania gay safari adventure begins in Tarangire National Park before visiting the Serengeti, Karatu, and Ngorongoro Crater. Amongst these glorious habitats, we’ll see lions, elephants, buffalo, and *fingers crossed* the elusive leopard. Ngorongoro Crater will be a particular treat—it’s a relatively untouched wildlife sanctuary that provides a sheltered habitat for hundreds, if not thousands, of species. Finally, we’ll finish each day back in our cozy tented camps and lodges, falling asleep amongst the surrounding wildlife.

If you have the time and you’re feeling ambitious, consider joining our Tanzania Kilimanjaro Gay Climb which concludes just before this tour begins, or our Rwanda Gorilla Trek Extension.

Tanzania Serengeti Gay Safari Tour Itinerary

Day 1 - Tarangire National Park
Jambo! Welcome to Tanzania.

Our trip kicks off at 8AM with a group meeting over breakfast.

Then we’re off, with our safari guides, to Tarangire National Park.

With any luck, we’ll spot wildlife along the way, so keep your eyes peeled.

Upon arrival at our permanent tented camp, we’ll enjoy lunch, some free time by the pool, then an afternoon game drive.

Upon returning to the lodge, we’ll savour some supper, then relax through the evening following a full first day.

Accommodation: Maramboi Tented Lodge, Tarangire

Day 2 - Tarangire National Park
We’ve devoted today to safariing, boxed lunches in tow so we can make the most of the day.

We’re pretty much guaranteed to see herds of elephants, lions, zebra and wildebeest. Waterbuck and giraffe are also a common sight, so keep your cameras handy.

We’ll return to the camp in the late afternoon for a guided nature walk to the shores of Lake Manyara.

Accommodation: Maramboi Tented Lodge, Tarangire


Tanzania gay safari elephants


Day 3 - Serengeti
After breakfast, we’ll check out of the lodge, then drive to the Ndutu area via Olduvai Gorge.

As one of the most important paleonthropological sites in the world it provides insight to early human evolution.

On arrival in Ndutu we’ll check into our tented camp, which interestingly, moves a few times a year to maximize wildlife-spotting opportunities. As for the tents, they’re downright luxurious, so you will definitely rest easy.

We’ll have an included lunch, then head out on an afternoon game drive.

This evening we’ll enjoy a spectacular sunset and dinner.

Accommodation: Woodlands Camp, Serengeti

Day 4 - Serengeti
Hope you’re feeling chipper, because we’ve got an early morning game drive in our 4X4 safari vehicles, and we’d like to leave the savagery to the animals (of which there are plenty): nearly two million wildebeests and zebras venture through this area each year, along with cheetahs, lions, giraffes and hundreds of bird species.

We’ll enjoy another game drive in the afternoon, with another delicious dinner planned back at camp.

Accommodation: Woodlands Camp, Serengeti


Tanzania gay safari - Ngorongoro Crater


Day 5 - Karatu / Ngorongoro Crater
Following breakfast, we’ll drive into the Ngorongoro Crater, which was recently named one of Africa’s Seven Natural Wonders (suffice to say, the landscape is gorgeous).

At 1,600m/5250ft altitude, the bottom of this caldera shelters almost 30,000 animals in its naturally enclosed habitat, and we can expect to see lions, elephants, zebra, hippos, buffalo, and rhinos.

After the game drive, our lodge awaits on the soft, red-brown hills of the crater. It offers both Wi-Fi and a fantastic pool, so get connected or unwind with a swim before an included dinner.

Accommodation: Plantation Lodge, Karatu


Tanzania gay safari - elephant babies


Day 6 - Karatu
Today we’ll enjoy our last morning game drive in Lake Manyara National Park.

After a late lunch back at the lodge, we’ll walk to the nearby waterfall, and elephant caves where herds are known to congregate.

To wrap up this wild adventure we’ll return to the lodge for sunset and dinner.

Accommodation: Plantation Lodge, Karatu

Trip Notes

Whether looking to climb Kilimanjaro or experience an authentic safari, gay travellers love Tanzania's naturally beauty.
From the snow-capped peaks of Mt Kilimanjaro—the largest free-standing mountain on Earth—to the Serengeti Plains and Ngorongoro Crater, which are home to more than 1,500 species of animals, this country is a testament to the power of nature. Whether you’re looking to challenge your limits with an epic hike, or spot the Big Five on safari, Tanzania is a worthwhile place to visit. You can even unwind on the pristine beaches of Zanzibar, an exotic archipelago in the Indian ocean.

Tanzania Visa
Most travellers require a visa to enter Tanzania. You can get a visa in advance here. Some airports allow you to purchase a tourist visa upon arrival, but it can’t be guaranteed and we strongly advise you to get your visa in advance.

Gay Tanzania Travel
Due to Tanzania’s deeply ingrained homophobia, we recommend LGBT travellers practice complete discretion. It should be noted even heterosexual PDAs are frowned upon in parts of Tanzania. However, if you’re joining our Kilimanjaro climb, please rest assured your crew, staff, and accommodations all welcome you.

LGBT Rights in Tanzania
Long story short, homosexuality is illegal in Tanzania. While locals in the tourism industry are more accepting, complete discretion is advised (even heterosexual public displays of affection are frowned upon on the Muslim coast and in Zanzibar). That said, your crew, staff, and accommodations with Out Adventures are all very welcoming.

Required Vaccinations
Based on the entry requirements for Tanzania, there are no other vaccinations needed for entry unless you are travelling from a Yellow Fever Zone (in which case you will be required to provide proof of Yellow Fever vaccination). To determine if you should take preventative measures to reduce the risk of illness, consult your doctor or a travel medical clinic, as we cannot provide vaccination recommendations.

Covid-19 Vaccination Requirements:
Out Adventures requires proof of full Covid-19 vaccination from all guests, following recommendations by the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
