Tanzania is a land of extremes. Home to Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain, and its deepest and largest lakes, the country has the world’s largest game reserve and one of the most spectacular natural sights in the world – the annual Great Migration.
Tanzania is the wildlife safari destination – simply put, it has it all, and you can seek out the Big Five here. With 25 percent of its land surface area enjoying protected status the country is home to some of the most famed game parks in the world, including the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Selous Game Reserve.
Tanzania will delight any person seeking a genuine safari experience. In the south lies Selous Game Reserve which, at the size of Switzerland, is the largest game reserve in the world. It is here that you will get to experience incredible wildlife viewing, with great sightings of the endangered African Wild Dog, amongst other animals. While in the west of the country you will also find Mahale National Park and Gombe Stream, which was made famous by Jane Goodall and her chimpanzee research.
But Tanzania has another side. After a safari, it is always great to spend some time relaxing by the sea and Tanzania again does not disappoint. With miles and miles of long white beaches and incredible coral reefs on the exotic ‘spice islands’ of Zanzibar and Pemba, you’ll get the chance to relax in your own Indian Ocean paradise and while away the days sampling exotic seafood dishes and watching beautiful sunsets. It’s little wonder that this part of Tanzania is a popular honeymoon destination.
For those up to the challenge we have our very own Kilimanjaro expedition outfit offering a variety of routes with varying levels of difficulty on Africa’s highest mountain. Our guides are experienced and hardy and a Kilimanjao expedition in their company will be an unforgettable experience.
In fact, Tanzania has so much to offer and is so diverse that the only way to really get an idea is to go and explore it yourself. So whether it’s diving on coral reefs of Zanzibar and exploring the tropical town of Stone Town, or trekking up Kilimanjaro and seeking out the Big 5 on the open plains, a tour of Tanzania is sure not to disappoint even the most expectant traveller.
