As one of Africa’s largest and most diverse countries Tanzania is a land of spectacular beauty. Along with Botswana and Kenya it is one of the most popular and best safari destinations in Africa. Here you will find exhilarating safaris both on foot and in four wheel drive vehicles to allow the best wildlife watching trips.
Tanzania’s contrasts are remarkable – from big game viewing on the great plains of the Serengeti or inside the Ngorongoro Crater to trekking to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, or perhaps relaxing on the tropical white sand beaches of Zanzibar.
With coastal lowlands, volcanic highlands and the Great Rift Valley, Tanzania is the only country in the world which has allocated at least 25 per cent of its total area to creating national parks and protected areas for wildlife. Home to the Selous Game Reserve, the largest single wildlife area in Africa, Tanzania is an absolute must-do for anyone seeking a diverse wildlife safari experience in East Africa.
Adventure travel opportunities here are second to none. Aside from the obvious and renowned safari and game viewing trips there is also the chance to visit tribal villages of the Masai, enjoy luxury train journeys across not just Tanzania but numerous fascinating African countries, climb Kilimanjaro, one of the most famous mountains in the world, enjoy a hot air balloon ride over breathtakingly beautiful national parks, go scuba diving in pristine waters at Zanzibar and Pemba and even volunteer in the local communities and schools or with wildlife.
