Tanzania is a mountainous and densely forested country in East Africa popular for its world-renowned beaches (including Zanzibar and its surrounding islands), its exquisite luxury safari adventures and Africa’s tallest mountain standing 4,900m high - the mighty Mt. Kilimanjaro!!
Some of Africa's Great Lakes are partly within Tanzania, to the north and west lie Lake Victoria - Africa's Largest Lake, and also Lake Tanganyika - Africa’s Deepest Lake known for its unique species of fish.
As with other countries in the East African region, Tanzania offers travellers a warm, temperate and inviting climate almost all year round, making it easy to enjoy a myriad of activities at virtually any time of the year. A not-to-be-missed safari experience is the “Great Migration” (one of the Seven New Wonders of the World) where over two million animals migrate from the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania to the greener pastures of the Maasai Mara National Reserve in Kenya during July through to October.
