Tanzania is strikingly beautiful and incredibly varied – open plains, massive mountains, long white beaches, dark forests, impressive rivers and multi-cultured peoples – there is something here for everyone. A country of contrasts, from the highest peak in Africa, Mt. Kilimanjaro, to the endless plains of the Serengeti and Ngorongoro, a microcosm of Africa. The wildlife of Tanzania, both in terms of sheer quantity and species, is probably the most abundant on the continent. The beaches are beautiful, with warm waters lapping on the golden sands, and offering a range of hotels and lodges spanning from the intimate boutique style to larger resorts establishments.
Each region in Tanzania offers a different experience. To the north – the famous Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conservation Area – boasting the Wildebeest Migration. The famous ice-capped equatorial mountain, Kilimanjaro, the highest free-standing mountain in the world.
Selous, Ruaha and Mikumi – tucked away in the South, these parks have fascinating eco-systems – forests, large rivers, and a mix of terrain with open plains and beautiful views.
Katavi – one of the wildest parks in Africa, to the south west, and Gombe and Mahale – located on Lake Tanganyika (the second deepest lake in the world ), and from here you may enjoy forest walks and trekking chimpanzees in the wild.
Not to be ignored are the ancient ruins along the coast, and on the islands, which tell tales of a rich trading history with Arabia and India, as well as excellent scuba diving and deep sea fishing. Add to this the unique tribal cultures of the Masai, Datoga, Iracq, Chagga to name but a few, and the peaceful, friendly people, and no wonder Tanzania is becoming known as the “Safari Capital of Africa”
