tanzania is arguably africa’s premier safari destination, home to an incredible variety of wildlife on an epic scale. witnessing the great migration across the serengeti is a true bucket list experience, while the spectacular ngorongoro crater is one of the best locations in africa for guaranteed ‘big five’ game spotting. tanzania offers safaris on both land and river, and is home to species that many of its neighbours lack, such as the chimpanzees of gombe stream national park. all of this plays out against a spectacular backdrop of lakes, savannah and mountains, including the highest peak in africa, mount kilimanjaro. tanzania is also home to a fascinating patchwork of ethnic groups, including the famous maasai warriors in their vibrant red robes, and there is a real warmth to the people here. the cities of the coast have historically looked east across the indian ocean, and centuries of trade have brought an eclectic mix of cultural influences from india, arabia and beyond. nowhere is this more apparent than on zanzibar, with its evocative history of sultans, spice traders and slave markets. this magical island is a very different place from the mainland, with an independent spirit and a distinctive muslim culture, home to some of the most beautiful beaches in east africa.
Nowhere answers the call of the wild quite like Tanzania's Serengeti. The iconic image of a lone acacia tree silhouetted against a burnt-orange sunset has become synonymous with this fabled destination.
The Serengeti is home to not only the Big Five (elephants, lions, leopards, cape buffaloes and rhinoceros), but also to the Great Migration of wildebeests and zebra, and a wide array of other wildlife that are native to this historic continent. Thrilling morning, afternoon and evening game drives will offer plenty of opportunities to see these astounding creatures and don’t forget, no two safaris are the same.
Not an easy feat and definitely reserved for the more energetic and adventurous traveller, but if you love hiking, exploring and ticking off bucket-list worthy experiences, very little will compare to the thrill of conquering Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.
Mount Kilimanjaro is not only Africa’s tallest mountain, but also the world’s tallest lone-standing mountain. A climb this huge is not to be taken lightly and will require a bit of preparation to ensure everything goes as smoothly and easily as possible, but it is said to be easier than climbing Mount Everest and promises absolutely breathtaking views at the summit.
A hot air balloon safari over the mottled plains of the Serengeti is a must-do when visiting Tanzania, as it offers an entirely new romantic perspective of the park that cannot be appreciated from any other vantage point.
A sunrise charter across the plains is silent except for the occasional blast from the burners and distant sounds of birds and wildlife that dwell below, it’s truly exhilarating. Opt for a sunset journey and you can sip champagne as you watch the sun drop below the horizon and cast enchanting shades of orange and red into the sky.
Considered the Cradle of Mankind, Ngorongoro Crater was formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself, and has since become a natural meeting point for all the animals in the Serengeti of Tanzania.
Game drives into this incredible natural enclosure promises un-matched views and personal interactions with the Big Five and many other animals, as well as the chance to learn more about the origins of humankind, with fossils being discovered here that date back nearly 1.8 million years ago to the very first stages of human development; much more exciting then your average history lesson!
Just off the coastline of Tanzania sits Zanzibar, a beautiful island offering a completely different landscape from the endless savannah of the Serengeti.
Contrast your game safaris and bush sleep-outs with white sand beaches and kaleidoscopic coral gardens when you visit Zanzibar. This beautiful island boasts swaying coconut palms, hidden coves and crystal clear waters, making the perfect romantic getaway to round off an incredible trip to Tanzania. Spend your days scuba diving, snorkelling, on sunset cruises and so much more on an island that could easily rival Mauritius and the Seychelles.
