About Tanzania

The largest country in east Africa, Tanzania offers something for every outdoor and nature enthusiast. Tanzania is a land of superlatives. Firstly, it is home to the highest mountain on the African continent - Mount Kilimanjaro. Secondly, it is home to the biggest lake in Africa – Lake Victoria. Lastly, Tanzania is also home to one of the mightiest parks, the stunning and untamed Serengeti National Park, where literally millions of herbivores make an annual migration in their endless quest for lush, green grass. In only a few short hours one can witness thousands of wildebeest, zebras and antelope on their interminable clockwise journey. As if this wasn’t enough, Tanzania is also home to Ngorongoro Crater. Ngorongoro Crater is a stunning volcanic caldera that is a conservation area and also a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Although the crater floor is limited in size, it is home to a wealth of animals including the endangered black rhino.

In the south lies the Selous Game Reserve, an area of diverse wildlife that is larger in size than the country of Switzerland. Here guests can enjoy walking safaris and boat safaris along the lovely Rufiji River. In the west lies the smallest of Tanzania's national Parks - Gombe Streams. This small park packs a big punch as it is home to an impressive number of primates, including the following: chimpanzees, olive baboons and vervet monkeys.

Tanzania has more to offer once the safari is over. For those seeking pristine beaches and crystal clear, warm waters, the beaches of Zanzibar are a diver’s and snorkeler's paradise. It is also possible to do a spice tour and see where spices such as black pepper, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg and vanilla grow.

Tanzania is an excellent safari destination for first-time safari-goers or safari veterans. It is politically stable and has a good infrastructure of safari lodging options that, while perhaps being slightly lower in standards than those of the southern African countries, are also slightly lower in price.
