About Tanzania

Despite its status as one of Africa’s most alluring African wildlife safari destinations, Tanzania has managed to remain surprisingly understated and low-key. From the snow-capped peak of Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro, to the endless plains of the Serengeti, it is a land of unimaginable natural beauty. Whether you want to explore the sun-soaked islands on one of many tours to Zanzibar or wade along the gentle shores of the Great Lakes, Tanzania is constantly presenting the visitor with new and exciting experiences.

Explore the swirling mists of the Ngorongoro crater, often called the unofficial 8th wonder of the world, or experience the greatest wildlife show on earth, the migration of the Wildebeest, Zebra and their predators through the vast Serengeti. However you choose spend your time in Tanzania, you’ll take away cherished memories of travel in Africa.

Our insights on Tanzania

  • The legendary Serengeti region is the main stage on which The Great Migration takes place, when over 1.5 million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebra and gazelle migrate in May or early June.

  • Tanzania also has a very large lion population, which makes it a must for lion lovers hoping to see plenty of prides.

  • With a diverse range of landscapes, including riverine forests, swamps, kopjes, grasslands, and woodlands, keen photographers won’t be able to get enough of their travels through this region.

  • If the mountains make you come alive, Africa’s highest peaks can be found in Tanzania. Mount Kilimanjaro is a world-famous hiking and climbing destination you won’t want to miss!

  • Lake Tanganyika is an African Great Lake and is the second-deepest lake in the world, bordering four nations and is vital for trade and commerce for people living along it. The lake is home to the oldest-running ferry in the world.

  • The second largest national park in Tanzania, the Serengeti National Park’s best months for wildlife viewing are between June and September.
