Tanzania Safari

Some of the amazing natural phenomena you will find on a holiday involving a Tanzania safari are the red soil plains of Tarangire, the Ngorongoro Crater and the plains of the Serengeti. In fact a Tanzania African safari provides a land of geographical extremes, with the highest peak: Mount Kilimanjaro, the lowest point: the lakebed of Lake Tanganyika, plus the largest lake: Lake Victoria, on the continent.

Perched on the edge of the African continent and facing the Indian Ocean warm and sunny days are followed by cool and balmy nights and whether on a Serengeti safari or enjoying the tropical beaches and boutique hotels in Zanzibar, the temperatures are always welcoming and gentle.

Although Tanzania is a country rich in culture and traditions, its history is also one of treasured heritage and pride. It is probably one of the oldest known inhabited areas on earth; fossil remains of humans and pre-human hominids have been found dating back over 2 million years.

Tanzania’s fauna is notable both for sheer numbers and variety, with 430 species and subspecies among more than four million of the country’s wild animals. These include zebra, elephant, wildebeest, buffalo, hippo, giraffe and dik-dik. Trips to Tanzania provide access to premium game viewing where the safari opportunities are virtually endless. A tour to see the great migration from the Serengeti is one of the most beguiling spectacles. Equally enthralling sights include the elephant herds in Africa's largest game reserve, the Selous and the numerous game in Ngorongoro Crater.

Whether you decide to stay in an African lodge or tented accommodation, Tanzania can offer a luxury holiday for everyone. Visitors can expect excellent hospitality and guiding.

As a perfect addition finish a holiday with a completely different experience, the soft white Zanzibar beach or the exotic Pemba make an idyllic contrast.
