Tanzania is one of the most famous safari nations in Africa. This nation borders the Indian Ocean in the east, and is hailed as one of the most impressive ecotourism destinations on the African continent. The legendary Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and Mount Kilimanjaro, are all names known to many adventurous travelers around the world.
Perhaps the most famous is the Great Migration where herd animals in astounding numbers migrate across the Serengeti National Park planes, followed by an entourage of predators and it always delivers an unforgettable wildlife drama. Several acclaimed luxury safari lodges have been developed in settings unsurpassed elsewhere.
Beyond safari, there’s the opportunity to travel easily to the Zanzibar Archipelago, just off the mainland of Tanzania. Comprising two larger islands Unguja (known as Zanzibar) and Pemba and a group of smaller islets, these “Spice Islands” are a tropical paradise.
A variety of accommodation choices including luxury options are available on the different islands, all boasting idyllic white, palm-fringed beaches lapped by warm turquoise waters. Water sports abound and is one of the top choices for coral reef diving in the Indian Ocean
