Tanzania

A Remarkable Experience in Africa.

Tanzania Travel

Beautiful and wild Tanzania is world-renowned for its animal viewing and wildlife experiences. The Serengeti National Park was the first of its kind on the continent and may have been home to the first-ever safari. This spectacular country is the site of Africa’s highest and lowest points: Mount Kilimanjaro at 5,895 metres above sea level, and the floor of Lake Tanganyika at 1,471 metres below sea level.

Officially known as the United Republic of Tanzania, this East African country is within the African Great Lakes Region, with one border made up of the Indian ocean, and eight other countries making up its remaining borders. The capital city, Dar es Salaam, lies on the coast and is home to the major airport Julius Nyerere International. However, there are over 40 smaller airports and airstrips around the country, making travel by lightweight aircraft the fastest and most common. Self-drive is possible, though many areas require a guide to enter.
