Tanzania


With over 40% of the country’s land under conservation, Tanzania is the quintessential wildlife destination. Tanzania is a timeless safari destination with great herds of large mammals roaming endless savannah grasslands, numerous bird species and scenic landscapes ranging from the dramatic Ngorogoro crater to the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar.

At 947,300km2 Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa sitting just below the equator. To the north-western borders, Tanzania shares the fresh water Lake Victoria with Kenya and Uganda, and to the south west Tanzania shares Lake Tanganyika, the second deepest fresh water lake in the world, with the Democratic Republic of Congo and Zambia. Tanzania is also blessed with magnificent mountain ranges including the snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro in the north east and Mount Meru. The coast line to the east is where the beautiful gems of Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia islands are located.

Tanzania offers arguably the best array of wildlife in the world. From the wildebeest roaming through the Serengeti plains to the Ngorongoro crater brimming with game, Tanzanian wildlife is simply spectacular. Tanzania boasts of over 1,500 bird species, the largest mammal population in Africa and over three quarters of the plant species in East Africa. Tanzania is the ultimate destination for big game experience and the spectacular phenomenon that is the wildebeest migration as million strong herds of wildebeest, zebra and other grazers cross between southern Serengeti and Ndutu plains.

Tanzania’s greatest asset however remains the friendly and courteous people who treat one and all with the “umoja” spirit of brotherhood. Tanzanians’ innate hospitality, warmth and openness help provide the best hints to understanding the rich cultural heritage and history of Tanzania.

The Tourist Centre would be happy to tailor the ultimate big game safari to Tanzania for you, your friends, school or family.
