Tanzania Northwest
is a large and diverse region to the south of Lake Victoria in Tanzania.

Given the richness of adjacent regions, the fabulous safari areas of Tanzania North, the remote jewels of Tanzania West and the lush mountains of Rwanda, it comes as some surprise to find how little there is of interest in this north-west corner of Tanzania.

The main town of Mwanza, on the southern shore of Lake Victoria, may have some interesting pockets, but usually only comes into our field of vision when talking to expats who are working there on various projects.

Rubondo Island Camp ... is the only real commercial lodge facility, a beautiful island retreat which provides access to elusive forest elephants and habituated chimpanzees.

Those few people who do visit this Tanzania Northwest region usually do so in combination with the adjacent Tanzania North region, including Serengeti safari, Ngorongoro safari, Tarangire safari and Lake Manyara safari.

Some visitors also combine with options further afield including Mount Kilimanjaro treks in the northeast of the country. Ruaha safari and Selous safari to the south, Katavi safari and Mahale Mountains chimpanzee safari out west, Maasai Mara safari over the border in Kenya and Virunga Mountains gorilla safari over in Rwanda.

These mainland areas are also commonly combined with nights down on the Tanzania Coast, especially on Zanzibar Island, Pemba Island, Mafia Island or Fanjove Island, usually in trips of 10 to 21 nights.
