Located on the East coast of Africa, Tanzania is the largest of the East African nations, with a total area of 945,087 square kilometers (364,900 square miles). It is the Africa you have always dreamed of: vast plains teeming with wild animals, Kilimanjaro’s snow-capped peaks rising above the flat scrubland and colourful Maasai herding their cattle alongside grazing wildebeest.
Within it’s borders lie the world’s largest intact caldera – the Ngorongoro Crater home to an extraordinary concentration of wildlife; Africa’s most famous national park – the Serengeti well known for the annual wildebeest migration; Olduvai Gorge – where fossil fragments of the very earliest ancestors of Homo sapiens were discovered by the Leakeys and last but not least Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain.
Tanzania is not only a safari destination. A visit to the “Spice Island” of Zanzibar or the islands of Mafia and Pemba with their idyllic palm-lined beaches and tropical climate tempered by gentle sea breezes is the perfect way to round off a visit to Tanzania.
