One of the most sought-after safari destinations in Africa, Tanzania is a haven for nature lovers and safari connoisseurs, who flock to its lands for the promise of exceptional wildlife and bird sightings in some of the most beautiful landscapes on the planet.
The largest country in East Africa, a third of Tanzania is protected, ensuring the conservation of the landscape and animal populations. As a result, Tanzania remains a land of spectacular natural beauty, where its jaw-dropping, contrasting landscapes make it a must-see, bucket list destination.
From the snow-tipped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro to the grassy plains of the Serengeti and the vegetation and game rich Ngorongoro Crater, a vacation to Tanzania promises incredible experiences with the natural world. For those craving a bush and beach vacation, the tropical coast of Zanzibar is just a short flight away.
One of Tanzania’s main attractions is the Great Migration, where, each year, over a million wildebeest, zebra and various antelope species move across the vast plains of the Serengeti to the Masai Mara in search of better grazing. If visiting Tanzania at the ideal time, safari goes can witness the migrations, one of the most incredible wildlife spectacles on the planet, including possible river crossings.
As well as game drives to view the abundance of wildlife in the regions, Tanzania offers her guests plenty of other exceptional adventures and experiences. Depending on the accommodation selection, travellers can enjoy hikes and drives in the Ngorongoro and Empakai craters, hot air balloon safaris over the Serengeti as well as day trips to one of Africa’s Great Lakes, Lake Victoria.
