See the wilds of Africa in the land of safaris, walk through the largest volcano crater in the world, jet ski on the waters of Lake Manyara, relax in a beach resort - Tanzania has it all. Read more...

With pastel colours streaking the sky at twilight in haphazard rainbows, the landscape of Tanzania is just as diverse as it is interesting. This is the land of safaris with abundant wildlife and golden sunrises, where you can see lions, elephants, giraffes and even the elusive leopard from the safety of your soft-top 4WD.

From beaches with tranquil islands nearby and sleepy coastal villages to the wilds of the savannah, the home of Mt Kilimanjaro is a wonderful place to explore on an East Africa adventure. Visit Arusha at the base of volcanic Mt Meru, a sprawling city of vibrant colours, flavours and smells and your starting point for a wilderness safari.

Serengeti National Park is home of the wildebeest migration and all the big cats that prey on them, while Ngorongoro crater displays an astonishing variety of wildlife, vegetation and landscapes. The people of Tanzania are charismatic, warm and friendly and are eager to show you the dignity and beauty of their varied culture.

With beautiful scenery, magnificent wildlife, beach escapes and a welcoming culture, Tanzania is a must for anyone visiting Africa.
