Why visit Tanzania?

“Jambo” – is the Swahili greeting for “welcome” which you will hear everywhere in friendly Tanzania.

The Serengeti is known as one of the ‘Seven Natural Wonders of Africa.’ Game-viewing includes: huge buffalo herds and thousands of antelope. The Great Migration of one and a half million Wildebeest traverse the Mara River twice yearly between the Serengeti and Maasai Mara in Kenya.

“Africa’s Garden of Eden” – the Ngorongoro Crater – is home to 30,000 animals including the rare Black Rhino and black-maned male lions.

Tanzania is the base from which to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak. Lake Natron has some of Africa’s most amazing scenery: rift escarpments, volcanoes and the vast multi-coloured soda lake.

The island of Zanzibar, off Tanzania’s coast, has miles of white sandy beaches and tiny islands, an idyllic destination for snorkeling, coral reef diving and deep sea fishing. The aroma of sensual spices, Swahili fusion cuisine and Arab history infuse Stonetown’s maze of cobbled courtyards to make a dream destination.
