Its panoramic landscapes, sweeping savannahs, soaring peaks and spectacular sunsets make the East African nation of Tanzania one of the continent’s most scenically beautiful safari destinations.

Land of Kilimanjaro,
the Serengeti and Spice Island

Teeming with wildlife, Tanzania is the geographic home of Africa’s highest and most iconic mountain – Kilimanjaro. There’s debate around where ‘Kili’ got its name. It may be a mix of the Swahili word Kilima, meaning mountain, and the KiChagga word Njaro which loosely translates to ‘whiteness’ and refers to the snow-capped summit. The mountain attracts climbers from across the world who come to realise their dream of summiting the roof of Africa. Tanzania is renowned the world over for the Serengeti National Park which links up with neighbouring Kenya’s Maasai Mara, forming the twin centres of the annual great wildebeest migration.  The country is also home to over 120 different ethnic groups, each with its own unique culture and traditions. 

Leading safari destinations abound in Tanzania, from the Ngorongoro Crater with its unique ecosystem contained within the soaring walls of an extinct volcano, to Tarangire National Park with its huge numbers of animals and diversity of wildlife species. A highlight attraction is the 30,000 square kilometres greater Serengeti eco-system. Add to this the exotic and self-autonomous island of Zanzibar, located off Tanzania’s gorgeous coastline. A short distance away, is the capital city of Dar es Salaam.
