Tanzania is world-famous for its jaw-dropping scenery, density of wildlife and fascinating tribal peoples. The country’s northern safari areas are the most visited, with sweeping, game-covered plains set against soaring escarpments and towering volcanic mountains.
Here the Great Rift Valley forms a magnificent backdrop to wildlife reserves like the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain at 5,895m, is a mecca for avid trekkers and mountaineers.
Tanzania Safaris and Tanzania national parks are a haven for huge concentrations of animals and birdlife. The Serengeti National Park alone has nearly 2 million wildebeest and zebra which migrate along age-old pathways, followed by opportunistic lion, cheetah, leopard, hyena and jackal.
The famous Ngorongoro Crater is a massive volcanic caldera where 25,000 animals live in a setting of unparalleled grandeur. Maasai tribal people have inhabited this region for hundreds of years, and to this day still herd their cattle amongst the native wildlife. A visit to a local village to learn about their culture and way of life is an eye-opening experience.
