Touring in Tanzania

Tanzania is arguably Africa’s premier safari destination, home to an incredible variety of wildlife on an epic scale. Witnessing the Great Migration across the Serengeti is a true bucket list experience, while the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater is one of the best locations in Africa for guaranteed ‘Big Five’ game spotting. Tanzania offers safaris on both land and river, and is home to species that many of its neighbours lack, such as the chimpanzees of Gombe Stream National Park. All of this plays out against a spectacular backdrop of lakes, savannah and mountains, including the highest peak in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro.

Tanzania is also home to a fascinating patchwork of ethnic groups, including the famous Maasai warriors in their vibrant red robes, and there is a real warmth to the people here. The cities of the coast have historically looked east across the Indian Ocean, and centuries of trade have brought an eclectic mix of cultural influences from India, Arabia and beyond. Nowhere is this more apparent than on Zanzibar, with its evocative history of sultans, spice traders and slave markets. This magical island is a very different place from the mainland, with an independent spirit and a distinctive Muslim culture, home to some of the most beautiful beaches in East Africa.

 

Touring Highlights of Tanzania

  • The grasslands of the Serengeti are the backdrop to one of nature’s most awesome spectacles, as vast herds of wildebeest and zebra drift across the landscape in search of fresh pasture.
  • Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is challenging but achievable, even for those without mountaineering experience, and worth it for the incredible views and sense of achievement.
  • Ngorongoro Crater is a vast caldera containing an astonishing concentration of wildlife, and it’s one of the easiest places in Africa to find the ‘Big Five’.
  • The legendary spice island of Zanzibar offers a completely different experience to mainland Tanzania, with spectacular beaches, superb snorkelling and an eclectic mix of African, Middle Eastern and Indian cultural influences.
  • Gombe Stream National Park, on the shores of Lake Tanganyika, is home to over a hundred chimpanzees, made famous by the pioneering work of primatologist Jane Goodall.
