Tanzania is the biggest (land area) among the East African countries (i.e. Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania). Tanzania has a spectacular landscape of mainly three physiographic regions namely the Islands and the coastal plains to the east; the inland saucer-shaped plateau; and the highlands. The Great Rift Valley that runs from north east of Africa through central Tanzania is another landmark that adds to the scenic view of the country.
The country has the largest concentration of wild animals. It also has pristine sandy beaches and Africa’s highest  snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro.

The country-offers iconic safari destinations such as the legendary Serengeti Plains, the geological marvel that is the Ngorongoro Crater and magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro. On top of all this, it hosts the greatest show on earth - the annual Wildebeest Migration - ensuring a perfect Tanzania Safari Holiday.

These destinations are well-known and draw thousands of visitors on memorable African holiday safaris, but this beautiful country also has some of the wildest wilderness areas in Africa in the southern region such as Selous Game Reserve - one of the largest game reserves in the world - and Ruaha National Park. These southern reaches of Tanzania provide Africa's wildest safari holidays.

To the west of the country, in the Lake Tanganyika region, you can go trekking in search of chimpanzees in Gombe Stream National Park and Mahale Mountains National Park. Made famous by the legendary researcher Jane Goodall, the chimpanzee experience is a great addition to a Tanzania safari holiday.

Wildlife and wilderness aside, Tanzania also boasts some of the most romantic and unspoilt tropical beaches in Africa.First on the list of amazing Tanzania beaches is Zanzibar, once home to Sultans and explorers, a place of exotic spices, azure waters and incredible architecture.
