Tanzania is a country of natural brilliance, spectacular wildlife, and seductive white sandy beaches. Apart from being the ideal bush and beach destination, visitors can witness the mighty herds of the Great Migration in the Serengeti. Tanzania and Zanzibar together offer a magnificent chance to visit the geological wonders, ancient towns & archaeological sites. In Tanzania one also has the chance see the magic of historic Stone Town with its winding cobbled streets and Omani style architecture.
Beaches of Zanzibar
The coast of Tanzania is perhaps most famous for the Zanzibar Archipelago, a cluster of islands that enchants and beguiles with its oriental mystique and forgotten exoticism — the very name evokes the Spice Islands and the dhow trade, sultans and palaces built of limestone and corals against the palm trees and the crashing surf.
Towering over the Serengeti plains, Tanzania’s Mount Kilimanjaro is not only Africa’s tallest peak, but the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Many travellers set out to climb this permanently snow-capped volcanic beast, rather than simply gazing at it from below, on organised guided treks that take five or more days.
Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park is a classic African landscape – sweeping plains, herds of wildebeest, elephants plodding in front of silhouetted acacia trees and lions snoozing in the long grass. The Big Five are in residence here, and the Great Migration thunders through, too, making this a fantastic place to go on safari at almost any time of the year.
Top Places to Visit
From the North with its jewel, the Serengeti National Park to the South, and the raw savannah of Ruaha National Park, Criss crossing lakes and craters, every safari is different and will leave you wanting more.
A large portion of this incredible water body lies in Tanzania. Choose the serenity of Speke Bay or the vibrancy of Mwanza and beyond, work, relax or explore.
Western Tanzania and Gombe Stream
Diving or live aboard on Lake Tanganyika, or Trek Chimps at Mahale, this is an area little frequented and remains the true wilderness of Tanzania.
Archipelago of Zanzibar and the Indian Ocean
Beyond the UNESCO heritage Stone Town of Zanzibar, there are islands to explore some habited and some not, dhow sailing trips and yacht tours, snorkeling or stay in an underwater room.
Mountains and Highlands
From Meru to Kilimanjaro and the highlands of Iringa and Mbeya. Its an exhilarating journey that will test your limits and leave you feeling more alive than ever.
