To many travellers, Africa is a continent of incredible wildlife, diverse cultures and endless savannah. No other country embodies this sentiment more than Tanzania, an amazing country that has been blessed with unspoilt natural wonders.
Tanzania is home to Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro and the world famous Serengeti National Park. The park is revered for its iconic annual wildebeest and zebra migrations and an incredible destination for safaris where you can see the Big Five wildlife attractions - elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos and buffalo.
A visit to the Ngorongoro Crater, known as the Eighth Wonder of the World, is not to be missed. Just off the coast of Tanzania, is the island of Zanzibar with its superb beaches, coral reefs and turquoise waters that are perfect for scuba diving.

The beautiful Serengeti National Park has some of the highest wildlife concentrations in the whole of Africa. Year round, it is one of the best places to see the Big Five - elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo. And during the great migration it is also home to one of the most amazing wildlife spectacles on the planet and has over a million migrating wildebeest and zebra move from horizon-to-horizon across the vast grasslands.
Zanzibar lies 35 kilometres off the coast of Tanzania and its crystal clear waters, pristine beaches and delightful culture make it one of the most alluring coastal islands imaginable. Zanzibar is a superb destination and makes an excellent extension to a safari holiday. Holidaymakers will enjoy Stone Town; a maze of narrow cobbled streets featuring restaurants, hotels, bazaars, mosques, museums
and street markets.
