From the peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro to the shores of Zanzibar, Tanzania is Africa’s premium tourism destination. Sharing the annual migration of more than 1.6 million wildebeest with Kenya’s Masai Mara, Serengeti National Park is one of the most well know names in safari travel. The Ngorongoro Crater, formed by the collapse of massive volcano, remains one of the world’s largest intact, unflooded calderas.
Nearby, Olduvai Gorge is the “Cradle of Mankind” and site where some of man’s most important archaeological discoveries were made. The Rift Valley stretches across Tanzania and is most prominent along the Maasai Steppe and forms a backdrop for Lake Manyara National Park.
To the south, true adventure awaits with the Selous Game Reserve, Ruaha, Katavi and Mikumi National Parks. Further to the west, Mahale Mountain and Gombe Stream National Parks offer the opportunity to track chimpanzee and enjoy the shores of Lake Tanganyika.
Africa’s tallest peak offers a challenging climb on a variety of routes. And the shores of Zanzibar provide great relaxation with a mix of history and culture.
In addition to amazing wildlife and exceptional beaches, visitors find the people of Tanzania genuinely welcoming. With a mix of more than 130 tribes, the blend of cultures and history provide a great opportunity to gain insight into life in Africa.
