Fast becoming a favourite East African holiday destination, Tanzania offers a wide range of safaris for both first-timers and seasoned campaigners. The ease with which a child-friendly safari can be combined with a beach holiday makes Tanzania a favorite destination for families. The country’s most exclusive and luxurious safari lodges and beach retreats make for an unforgettable Tanzania honeymoon.
Tanzania is blessed with beautiful and scenic terrain made of animal parks along the great East African Rift Valley and the expansive Serengeti Woodlands and Grasslands. The Tanzanian coastline along the Indian Ocean and the Zanzibar Archipelago, offers a number of impressive pristine beaches in a tropical climate. Tanzania is also home to the famous snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, which is the highest peak on the African continent.
None of these however can match the great Serengeti Migration. It forms the centerpiece of most Tanzania safaris, and is regarded as nature at her most extravagant. It involves hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, zebra and antelope running the gauntlet of predators as they migrate around the Maasai Mara and Serengeti ecosystem. It is such an unbelievable spectacle, unmatched by any migration throughout the animal kingdom. You have to see it to believe it! It is one of the reasons the Serengeti National Park has been recognized as one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
In addition to such sites as the Serengeti and Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania is home to the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara Reserve. These two “World Heritage Sites” are home to an unbelievable number of animals and an astonishing variety of bird species. For those who enjoy nature and adventure, Tanzania is home of the ultimate safari adventure.
