Tanzania in East Africa has the most alluring and renowned of Africa's place names, the mass migrations of the Serengeti, the Great Rift Valley, Ngorongoro Crater, the fossils of Olduvai Gorge, snow-capped Kilimanjaro, Lake Manyara and the spice-island Zanzibar.
Tanzania houses the highest mountain in Africa, Mt Kilimanjaro (5895 m), the second largest fresh-water lake in the world - Lake Victoria and one of the deepest lakes in the world - Lake Tanganyika. Selous Game Reserve is one of the world’s largest, and the paradisiacal Ngorongoro one of the largest intact volcanic craters, where wildlife roams freely among the Maasai herders.
The coastline of Tanzania is superb, and the islands of Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia promise spectacular water sports after a Tanzania safari. The culture is a kaleidoscope of African, Arab, European, and Indian origins. 120 tribal groups reside within the country. The Maasai, Samburu and Arusha are of Nilotic origin. Dar es Salaam is the administrative capital of Tanzania, Dodoma the legislative. English and Swahili are the most widely spoken languages. The Tanzanian Shilling is the local currency. Tanzania is three hours ahead of GMT. The wildlife viewing and birding is superb year-round while on a Tanzania safari tour. A particularly good time to go is from late Jun-Oct. The rains have passed, the roads dried, the weather is cooler. By this time the migration in in full swing, with the plain's animals on their way to the Maasai Mara in Kenya.
wonderful opportunity to see the very best of Tanzania, staying in the heart of the National Parks in private camps away from the crowds. After a night in Arusha continue to the game-filled areas of Tarangire National Park, the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti National Park. This tour operates daily from Kilimanjaro / Arusha. The mobile camping in Tarangire is a completely private experience, just for your group.
