Africa's highest mountain, most famous national park and largest game reserve all lie within the borders of Tanzania. Snow-capped Kilimanjaro, exotic Zanzibar, the plains of the Serengeti and the amphitheatre of the Ngorongoro Crater are icons of Africa. Tanzania’s game viewing is unparalleled: a quarter of its land is protected and it has resisted mass tourism.
With around 20% of Africa’s large mammals, over 1,000 bird species, untouched wilderness areas and a coastline lapped by the clear waters of the Indian Ocean, you will find the true romance of Africa on a holiday toTanzania.
Words cannot capture the vastness of the Serengeti. Its natural abundance of wildlife provides incredible game viewing. On the open, grassy savannah, antelope species include eland, Grant’s and Thomson’s gazelles, topi and hartebeest.
In the denser bush and acacia of the central Serengeti, leopard sightings are among the best in Africa, cheetah and lion are abundant. In the rivers, hippo and crocodile are plentiful.
Largely undiscovered and unspoilt, the Tanzania coast is fast catching the attention of travellers looking to avoid the hustle and bustle of the better known tourist destinations.
Enjoy beautiful beaches, offshore coral reefs and exploring fascinating ancient ports steeped in the history of the slave and ivory trade.
And for a more active Tanzania holiday, no mountaineering experience is needed to climb Mt Kilimanjaro, although the glacier-bound summit provides scope for technical climbs.
