An insight into Tanzania & Zanzibar

Home to many of Africa's most instantly recognisable natural wonders- the snow capped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro, the wide expanses of Lake Victoria, the stunning Great Rift Valley, the plains of the Serengeti and the peerless tropical island of Zanzibar, as well as perhaps the greatest natural diversity in Africa, Tanzania is the ideal place for wildlife spotting with Africa's second largest number of bird species, the continent's biggest mammal population and three-quarters of East Africa's plant species.

Most people when talking about Tanzania safaris will mention the 'Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater being a wildlife haven not to be missed by any visitor'.

Those who are very familiar with the country will tell you of still greater Tanzania Safari wonders in the little visited southern parks of Tanzania. In the National Parks such as Ruaha, Katavi, and Mahale, you will find the Africa you dream of on winter nights back home. An Africa that is disappearing fast, where the trails aren't congested with vehicles and where you often don't see another soul in the parks, meaning you get the true Tanzania safari experience.

Zanzibar, a short hop away from the Tanzania mainland with easy flight connections to all the major tourist centres, is the ultimate Indian Ocean experience, with its fascinating historical Stone Town and magnificent beaches.

This spice island with its picture postcard beaches offers superb diving and deep sea fishing, and a traditional Swahili culture steeped in history. The atmospheric alleyways of Stone Town, has something for everyone and makes the perfect beach destination to relax after your Tanzania safari on the mainland or as a Tanzania Safairi destination in its own right.

There is accommodation to suit all budgets, a variety of excursions easily arranged from Stone Town and a good infrastructure.
