TANZANIA

THE ROOF OF AFRICA

TANZANIA

 

A country of exceptional geographic diversity, the United Republic of Tanzania boasts many unique attractions that few places can rival. This includes the tallest free-standing mountain in the world (Mt. Kilimanjaro), the rolling plains of the Serengeti and the pristine tropical paradise of Zanzibar.

 

Whether you are a seasoned traveller or a first-time safari-goer, Tanzania has something to offer everyone. The most well-known areas are the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti, in the northern region of the country. This hosts some of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa. The Serengeti forms part of the Great Migration and is part of the journey for millions of animals each year. It’s a unique spectacle that’s known to leave guests speechless.   

 

Two large lakes, Lake Natron and Lake Manyara are home to a multitude of flamingos and other water birds, whilst the lesser-known Ruaha, Selous and Katavi are the epitome of true wilderness. With limited access, these wild areas boast huge concentrations of animals in the wildest setting one can imagine. Mahale is on the sandy shores of Lake Tanganyika, the second deepest lake in the world and is home to charismatic chimpanzees, providing the opportunity to trek with these beautiful primates.
