Exquisite, endless, ever-changing landscapes

From the volcanically rich soil to the lush forests, interminable golden savannahs, pearly white sands, snow capped peaks, baobab clusters, lush swamps, fields of sunflowers and a constantly overwhelming sense of space, there is so much to explore.

Nature’s most magical playground

Tanzania has three safari circuits and each one of them would make Tanzania a top wildlife destination. The popular Northern circuit with the Serengeti and Ngorongoro crater offers one of the best classical safaris in Africa, especially if timed with the annual wildebeest migration. Sit surrounded by 1.5 million wildebeest as you experience one of natures great wonders, sip a G and T on the shores of the flamingo-infested lake Manyara as the fiery sun sinks below the horizon, or survey the vast Ngorongoro crater from a breathtaking vantage point on the rim.

High densities of game all year round

Tanzania boasts the highest game density in all of Africa and as a result the game viewing is simply spectacular. At any one time you will be in awe of the amount of game that you see whether its elephants, zebra, wildebeest, buffalo or giraffe… there will no doubt be more than one of them. The Serengeti is particularly famous not only for its endless plains but also for its healthy population of lion.
