Tanzania caters for all African Safari ideals. From arguably Africa's most famous and iconic safari names - Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Kilimanjaro - to the wildest and most underdeveloped reserves on the continent - Selous, Ruaha and Katavi - Tanzania.
The iconic Serengeti plays host to one of the world's greatest wildlife phenomena in the Great Migration where hundreds of thousands of wildebeest and zebra move across the vast plains. The wildebeest spend a great deal of time in the Serengeti where they give birth on the lush grass of the south.
The Ngorongoro Crater has been described as the African Eden for in this small collapsed volcano more than twenty thousand animals have made their permanent home. Not far from the crater is Lake Manyara National Park where flamingoes and tree-climbing lions offer a unique wildlife experience.
A less well known, but by no means less spectacular, part of the famous northern circuit of Tanzania is Tarangire National Park, one of the country's Tanzania's best kept secrets. Here elephants and baobabs dwarf the landscape.
Long in the shadows of the northern circuit the southern and western parts of Tanzania are proving to be some of Africa's most spectacular wilderness areas. Selous Game Reserve and Ruaha and Katavi National Parks offer some of the most rewarding safari experiences on the continent.
On the shores of Lake Tanganyika are the incredible Mahale Mountains National Park and Gombe Stream National Park where Africa's best chimpanzee viewing can be experienced.
With all this it is unbelievable that Tanzania still boasts Africa's highest peak in Kilimanjaro and some of the most beautiful coastline on the continent. The islands of Zanzibar, including Pemba and Mafia, offer not only an excellent beach vacation, but also a rich history of Sultans, war and slavery.
If it's the history of Africa that fascinates you, the big game, climbing Africa's highest point or simply enjoying the best in beach holidays then Tanzania offers it all.
