Tanzania

Tanzania boasts the legendary Serengeti National Park which for nine months of the year is home to the greatest concentration of migratory game in the world – over three million herbivores and the predators that hunt them.

From the largest wildlife spectacle on the planet and vast tracts of untamed wilderness, to colourful Maasai rituals and tranquil rhythms of Swahili towns and the idyllic beaches of Zanzibar and the islands on the Swahili Coast, Tanzania offers a unique glimpse into Africa as it has remained for centuries.

Northeast Tanzania encompasses a volcanic region that includes Mount Meru (14,979ft/4,566m) and Mount Kilimanjaro (19,340 ft/5,895m), the latter being the highest point in Africa and the tallest free standing mountain in the world.

To the west of these peaks is the legendary Serengeti National Park which for nine months of the year is home to the greatest concentration of migratory game animals in the world – some three million herbivores and the predators that hunt them. The Serengeti ecosystem also includes the famous Ngorongoro Crater, a 20-mile-wide volcanic crater which holds an extraordinary concentration and diversity of wildlife.

Home to approximately 120 tribal groups, Tanzania has an incredible tribal diversity in addition to its varied landscapes and wildlife. Cultural tourism has become increasingly popular and visits to local villages are often a highlight of safari itineraries. The Maasai are the best known of Tanzania's tribes and inhabit the northern regions of the country.

Our safaris cover the northern, southern and western circuits in Tanzania. In the north, we take you on magical journeys into the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire and Lake Manyara. In the south, we explore the wilder Selous and Ruaha game reserves and lastly the unique wilderness areas of Mahale and Katavi in the west.
