Discover Tanzania

More than almost any other destination, Tanzania is the land of safaris. Wildebeest stampede across the plains. Hippos jostle for space in muddy waterways. Elephants wander along seasonal migration routes and chimpanzees swing through the treetops. Throughout the country, there are unparalleled opportunities to experience this natural wealth.

Take a boat safari down the Rufiji River past snoozing crocodiles in Selous Game Reserve. Watch giraffes silhouetted against ancient baobab trees in Ruaha National Park. Sit motionless as waterbirds peck in the shallows around Rubondo Island. Hold your breath while a lion pads in front of your vehicle in Ngorongoro Crater.

Inland, Mt Kilimanjaro beckons, its graceful, forested flanks rising up to a stately snow-capped summit. It is Africa’s highest peak and one of the world’s highest freestanding mountains. Climbers by the thousands venture here to challenge themselves on its muddy slopes, rocky trails and slippery scree.

Must-see attractions in Tanzania


Located in the northern highlands of Tanzania, beneath the twin peaks of Mt. Meru and Mount Kilimanjaro, Arusha is the safari capital of the country. Guests embarking on the popular northern safari circuit all stop in the ‘Geneva of Africa’ to prepare for their journeys into the African bush.

Tarangire National Park

Baobabs and elephants, the giants of the African wilderness. The fierce sun sucks the moisture from the landscape, baking the earth a dusty red, the withered grass as brittle as straw. The Tarangire River has shrivelled to a shadow of its wet season self. But it is choked with incredible wildlife.

Lake Manyara

From the entrance gate, the road winds through an expanse of lush jungle-like groundwater forest where hundred-strong baboon troops lounge nonchalantly along the roadside, blue monkeys scamper nimbly between the ancient mahogany trees, dainty bushbuck tread warily through the shadows.

Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro is one of the largest unbroken calderas in the world that isn’t a lake. Its steep, unbroken walls soar 400m to 610m and provide the setting for an incredible natural drama as prey and predators graze on the crater floor. You’ll wonder whether you’ve descended into a wildlife paradise.

Serengeti National Park

Few people forget their first encounter with Serengeti National Park. Perhaps it is the view from the summit of Naabi Hill at the park’s entrance, from where the Serengeti’s grasslands stretch out like a vision of eternity. Or maybe it’s a coalition of male lions stalking across open plains. 

Kilimanjaro Climbing

Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa, making it one of the seven summits. Kilimanjaro is very popular with both experienced hikers and first time adventurers because it is considered to be the easiest of the seven summits. World’s tallest free standing mountain.

Selous Game Reserve

Standing as the largest game reserve in Africa, Selous is also the second largest conservation area in Africa sized at 50,000 square kilometres with lots of attractions. It is definitely noted as even four times bigger than the Serengeti. Take a safari to Selous as it is one of the most remote game reserves.

Ruaha National Park

Ruaha is notable for its wild and striking topography, especially around the Great Ruaha River, which is its heart, and which is home to crocodiles, hippos and wading birds. Much of it is undulating plateau averaging about 900m in height with occasional rocky outcrops and stands of baobabs. 

Zanzibar Archipelago

Step off the boat or plane onto the Zanzibar Archipelago and you’re transported through time and place. This is one of the world’s great cultural crossroads, where Africa safari meets a excellent beach vacation on the beaches of the Indian Ocean. Playground for diving, snorkelling and kitesurfing.
