Tanzania - Overview

Travel to Tanzania and be enchanted by an African adventure. This magnificent country boasts majestic mountains, vibrant wildlife, swaying grasslands, lush forests, exotic islands and mysterious arid plains. It’s also the starting point of the Great Migration, the largest synchronized animal journey on the globe. This phenomenal event consists of around 1.2 million wildebeest or gnu, 750 000 zebra and a host of other antelope and predators. 

A Tanzania vacation has a wealth of sights and activities that are well-suited to families traveling with children. This beautiful country is also popular with couples who want a memorable romantic getaway. Some of the best attractions include:

The Serengeti and the Great Migration – Experience the majesty of the largest land-based gathering of animals as they make their annual journey to Kenya, from Ngorongoro in the southern Serengeti. This natural phenomenon occurs year round in as the beasts migrate northwards in the first six months of the year, and into the Masai Mara and southwards the latter half of the year. During February the wildebeest are found on the short grass plains of the south eastern part of the region, giving birth to about 500,000 calves within a 2 to 3-week period.

Mount Kilimanjaro – This is the tallest peak on the African continent, and the highest freestanding mountain in the world. It’s an impressive sight that brushes the clouds and provides many opportunities for climbing and hiking, whether you want to reach the summit, or just take a day walk.

Ngorongoro Crater – As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this large volcanic caldera is home to a variety of endemic wildlife. In fact, most of the animal species found in East Africa can be evidenced in this unique terrain, making it an excellent place to visit.  

Zanzibar – Some of the most iconic images of East African ocean culture were photographed in this exotic archipelago. Aside from other-worldly beauty, white sands and crystal waters, there are many ways to enjoy this semi-autonomous part of Tanzania. Have an adventure on a dhow and make sure that you visit Stone Town – the capital city.

Olduvai Gorge – This conservation area is near to the Ngorongoro crater, and is known as the “Cradle of Mankind”. It makes for a fascinating excursion as it’s one of the world’s most important paleoanthropological sites. Archeologists, Louis and Mary Leaky, unearthed some of the most significant hominid fossils in this area and guided tours are available for those who wish to explore it.
