“I love Tanzania because of the light, colours and life in almost every scene. Especially at dawn: the rising sun floods the cool grasslands with gold, school children walk along the roadsides and vendors set out their wares. And when nature surrounds you, there is exuberance everywhere: the largest of animals mingle with the most minute; birds of every size and colour soar and sing; trees and plants burst with flowers; landscapes are colourful and diverse. Mostly, though, it’s because of the equanimity, charm, dignity and welcome offered by so many Tanzanians.”

Tanzania has 17 diverse National Parks including Sealous Game Reserve, Africa’s largest protected area, and the Serengeti National Park, which comes to life each year with the annual wildebeest migration. The Ngorongoro Crater is a must-see for its unbelievable geology, and abundance of wildlife. Then there’s Tarangire, Katavi, Ruaha and Arusha – all iconic African parks.
From magical Pemba in the North, to the famous island of Zanzibar, Tanzania’s beaches are paradise on earth. The glorious Swahili coastline caters to every whim and snorkelling or scuba diving in these clear waters opens doors to a whole new world beneath the waves.
Tanzania is unique and multi-cultural with many fascinating cities worth visiting. Dar es Salaam is the second largest trading port in East Africa and a trip there offers an interesting insight into the commercial hub of the country. For a more cultural experience, we recommend visiting Stone Town in the heart of Zanzibar.
Quite simply put, Tanzania has something for everybody to enjoy.
