When it comes to the safari experience, Tanzania’s stunning range of wildlife and its many beautiful national parks and conservation areas make it the best place in Africa to go on safari. Whether you choose to do your safari from the back of a truck or want to try something more adventurous such as guided hiking or even canoeing, there is a wealth of options to satisfy.
National Parks of Tanzania, such as Manyara Lake, Ngorongoro, Tarangire, and the world famous Serengeti offer visitors the opportunity to see the fabled big five as well as countless other animals, birds, and insects the likes of which you cannot see elsewhere in the world.
Tanzania is also the traditional home of the Maasai people, and no visit to Tanzania would be complete without interacting with these people and paying a visit to the Cradle of Mankind at Olduvai Gorge. For the more adventurous, the opportunity to climb iconic Mount Kilimanjaro or the smaller but no less beautiful Mount Mara is also available. Those seeking sun, sand, and leisure can visit beautiful Zanzibar, a magnificent island retreat whose rich cultural history is every bit as fascinating as its jungles and beaches.
