Tanzania on the east coast of Africa has an abundance of environments to explore and wildlife to encounter: from flamingoes in Lake Manyara, to big tuskers in the Ngorongoro Crater and the great migration in the Serengeti. Tanzania is home to the highest mountain on the continent: Mount Kilimanjaro and some of the most celebrated beaches and pristine coral reefs in Africa across Zanzibar.
With unrivalled quantities of game and some of the most beautiful national parks on the continent, Tanzania is a safari dream come true. On the limitless plains of the Serengeti, visitors witness the ebb and flow of the annual migration as millions of wildebeest cover thousands of miles in their constant search for water and grazing. Tanzania’s vastness encompasses a great diversity of habitats and each region is famous for particular species, from the chimpanzees of the Mahale Mountains, to the desert-adapted antelope of Ruaha, and the flamingoes and famous tree-climbing lions of Lake Manyara, to the crocodiles and hippo in the mighty Rufiji River in Selous. In Tanzania it is possible to stay in some of the more luxurious lodges in Africa, and herds of elephant and giraffe, as well as big cats, can be seen in both the north and south of the country. Zanzibar and its surrounding islands off the east coast of Tanzania have stunning white sand beaches and excellent coral reefs. The warm Indian ocean makes Zanzibar a perfect relaxing getaway, and a stunning change of scenery from Tanzania's game reserves and national parks.
