Both small and large group safaris in Tanzania have their own advantages and considerations, but the choice between the 2 lies with you and depends on your preferences, tastes, budget and the type of safari experience you’re seeking for from your visit to Tanzania.


Advantages and Considerations

Flexibility: Smaller safari groups often have more flexibility in terms of itinerary adjustments and wildlife viewing. Guides can easily cater to individual interests and preferences since the group is not big.

Personalized Experience: Smaller groups allow for a more intimate and personalized experience. You’re likely to have more interaction with your guide and fellow travelers when you join a small group on your Tanzania safari.

Closer Wildlife Encounters: Animals may be less disturbed by smaller groups, thus providing a more authentic experience. You are more likely to enjoy closer and more exclusive wildlife encounters during your wildlife game drives.

Group Dynamics: Smaller safari groups can lead to better group dynamics in the end allowing travelers to bond more closely and share the wildlife safari experience in a more cohesive and comfortable way.

Limited Availability: Small group tours usually have limited availability; this means you have to plan and book well in advance to secure a spot on a small group safari to Tanzania.

Cost: Small group safaris in / to Tanzania tend to be more expensive on a per-person basis compared to larger group safaris. This is because the costs are spread among fewer travelers.


Advantages and Considerations

Cost-Effective: Large group safaris in Tanzania are generally more budget-friendly because the costs are distributed among a larger number of travelers.

Social Interaction: For those who enjoy socializing, meeting a diverse group of people, a larger group safari provides more opportunities for socializing and making new friends with the same interests while experiencing the wilderness.

Economies of Scale Benefits: Larger groups can sometimes benefit from economies of scale, resulting in lower overall costs for accommodation, transportation and activities.

Less Personalized: Large safari groups may result in a less personalized and interactive experience with less individual attention from the safari guides. It can be harder to tailor the experience to individual preferences.

Logistical Challenges: Moving a large safari group can be logistically challenging and it may take longer to organize activities and transitions.

Wildlife Viewing Challenges: Large groups might be more noticeable to wildlife, potentially affecting animal behavior and making it harder to get close for viewing.

To conclude, note that in any type of safari group tour, small or large, chances of getting a window seat are a probability, you have to be prepared to compromise, be patient as not all of you will always be on time and you should be flexible with your travel dates as safari group tours have fixed / scheduled dates.
