It’s not just the environment, but the cultural diversity which is one of Tanzania’s most pleasant and refreshing surprises. Tanzania is an East African country, four times the size of the United Kingdom, that is famous for its vast wilderness areas and for being one of the best wildlife destinations in the world. The country has an extraordinary history, coupled with an abundance of natural wonders and is home to 8 World Heritage Sites!
Tanzania is most famous for its annual migration of over 1 million White-bearded Wildebeest and 200 000 Zebra. The Serengeti National Park covers 14,763km of grassland plains and savannah, as well as riverine forest and woodlands. Many have said that it is almost impossible to miss the “Big 5” here. The country enjoys high concentrations of elephant and giraffe, while its rivers and lakes contain massive populations of hippos and crocodiles and are often tinged pink with thousands of flamingos.
Home to Mount Kilimanjaro; bordered by idyllic beaches; and surrounded by three of the world’s most magnificent lakes (Lake Tanganyika, Lake Nyasa and Lake Victoria), this country simply must be experienced for its sheer volume and diversity of landscapes, flora and fauna. The spectacular Ngorongoro Crater is an ethereal blue and green vista, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It houses the highest density of lions and other predators in all of Africa.
The magical islands of Zanzibar and Mafia Island lie offshore, with a marine park home to whale sharks and coral reefs.
