Welcome to Tanzania

The snowy peak of Africa's highest mountain and the world's highest freestanding mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro

From the high snowy peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru to the palm tree fringed Indian Ocean islands of Zanzibar and Pemba, Tanzania quite simply has it all. Whether it’s the mega herds of Selous, Ruaha and Katavi; the habituated chimpanzees of Mahale and Gombe Stream; the wildebeest migration of the Serengeti; the giant tuskers of Tarangire; or the whale sharks swimming around Mafia Island, the variety and quality of wildlife safari experiences on offer in Tanzania is unrivalled within a single country. Tanzania is unquestionably a remarkable and incomparable African travel destination.

The drawcard for many to Kenya is it's variety in beautiful landscapes, here is a powdery beach in Zanzibar

Why Tanzania is unique?

Ngorongoro Crater is famous for its prolific wildlife

Tanzania is a large African country with over 25% of its land surface area set aside as some form of protected area – national park, game reserve, wildlife management area, etc. – for the benefit of wildlife and conservation. Safari goers benefit from this extensive and diverse wildlife estate, which is accessible in its entirety to anyone with a reliable 4x4 vehicle. There are few – if any – other African safari destinations where self-sufficient 4x4 aficionados and nature lovers can experience enormous herds of buffalo and elephant, giant tuskers, the world renowned wildebeest migration, the Eden-like Ngorongoro Crater, habituated chimpanzees, swimming with whale sharks and dolphins, and climbing Africa’s highest mountain all within the confines of a single spectacular country.
