The perfect stage on which to watch the full majesty of wild Africa unfold before you, Tanzania is blessed with an astonishing diversity of ecosystems and wildlife.
Three times the size of France, the country plays host to the greatest animal migration on earth each year, as the grassy plains of the Serengeti witness thousands of wildebeest, zebras and antelope brave the treacherous crossing of the Mara River in search of new pastures. Against the backdrop of the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire, you can enjoy some of the greatest wildlife experiences anywhere, whilst Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world, provides a host of great hiking challenges.
To the south lie the lesser-known gems of Selous and Ruaha, with its vast populations of wild elephants, whilst the western corner of the country is home to a virgin landscape little explored by visitors, where chimpanzees inhabit the towering slopes of the Mahale Mountains. Along its eastern coast, Tanzania can boast miles of untouched beaches that are lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and dotted with some of the finest dive sites anywhere in the world. This rich bounty has naturally attracted some fantastic accommodation options with everything available from wild bush camps, to the luxury of plunge pools overlooking watering holes and binoculars in every room.
