Part of East Africa and the largest country of the ten states making up this region, Tanzania has it all, from wilderness plains to coastal beaches. In fact nearly 38 per cent of the country is protected conservation area which means travellers can enjoy a wide selection of sights including 29 wildlife reserves, 16 game parks, 40 conservations and seven UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The savannah safaris will have you enjoying innumerable species of wildlife at close proximity at lodges and bush camps that offer exciting tours like hot air balloon safaris, dining in the wild and fly camping. And there’s no better way to experience the annual wildebeest migration as it makes its way through northern Tanzania than up close and candid. Then there’s the coastal paradise of Dar-es-Salaam and the Zanzibar archipelago with its own marine attractions and cultural indulgences.
