Tanzania is home to a spectacularly varied landscape of savannah, forests, lakes and beaches, bursting with phenomenal wildlife, the cultures of native Maasai tribes, and the Arabic influences of the Spice Coast.
We think Tanzania offers the ultimate taste of Africa and her kaleidoscope of once-in-a-lifetime experiences. For starters, you can watch Africa’s mightiest “Big Five” predators stalking a cast of jumping giraffes, zebra and impala on the vast Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater (otherwise known as the Great Migration or “the greatest show on earth”). While lodging in luxury tented camps you can also venture out to meet with native tribes. Then you have spectacular Mt Kilimanjaro to trek up.
But this East African nation holds many more treasures.
Less explored, the Selous Reserve is one of the largest and most important game reserves in Africa. Located in a remote region south of Dar es Salaam, what you will see here is well worth the effort. The Selous is full of tangled jungles, tourist-free plains, meandering hippo and croc-filled rivers. Here you can go on walking safaris, boat safaris and fly camping trips up the Rufiji River, with superb guides to accompany you.
After your safari adventures you can head east to the coast. As well as being one of Africa’s greatest safari destinations, Tanzania also has 800 kilometres of dazzling Indian Ocean coastline – not to mention tropical Zanzibar and the other exotic islands that aren’t far offshore. Absorb the historical atmosphere of Stone Town, head off on a spice plantation tour, sail away on a Dhow cruise, go deep sea fishing…or simply laze on a perfect palm-fringed white beach.
The beaches are some of the best on the East African Coast with exceptionally fine sand and deep turquoise waters. There are also world-class dive sites which will thrill scuba divers and snorkellers. Honeymooners will love the exclusive beachfront lodges, while parents will appreciate the range of family-friendly accommodation and available activities.
