Tanzania – Overview

Tanzania is Africa’s visual masterpiece. it's a rustic of natural splendour, astounding wildlife, seductive beaches, charming ancient towns, archaeological sites and geological wonders. Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, rises from lush, grassy plains and towers over the land. Its snow-capped peak may be a sight to behold. Climbing Kilimanjaro is surprisingly easy and standing on the roof of Africa may be a life-changing experience.

The ideal bush and beach destination, visitors can witness the mighty herds of the good Migration thundering across the Serengeti plains and end their unforgettable safari with a serene beach holiday on Zanzibar, the intoxicatingly beautiful and exotic Spice Island.
Witness the Great Wildebeest Migration

Hardly the other destination on Earth offers a wildlife encounter to match the annual Wildebeest Migration. Forming the centrepiece of most inaugural Tanzania safari itineraries, the Migration could be a mind-blowing display of nature at her most extraordinary. About 2 million wildebeest, zebra and antelope run the gauntlet of predators as they migrate round the Serengeti-Mara ecosystem in search of fresh grazing. This awe-inspiring event is one among the last mass terrestrial animal movements left on the earth – the herds are so big they will be observed from space!
