TANZANIA
Tanzania is blessed a winning combination of truly wild reserves You can
come straight from a Tanzania safari camp in the morning and reach the Indian
Ocean in time for an afternoon swim.

It is renowned for its magnificent wildlife, lakes, mountains, scenery , tropical
beaches and amazing marine life. Nearly a quarter of the country is made up of
protected national parks, hunting reserves and controlled zones. The country’s
wildlife parks and reserves are unrivalled for their abundance of game. With
internationally famous game parks like the Ngorongoro, Serengeti and
Manyara, where wildlife roam in teeming numbers, a safari here is an
unbelievable experience.  

The Great Migration in the Serengeti is a phenomenon that is beyond
description - this mass exodus of 1.5 million wildebeest together with half a
million zebra along with the predators and other species that follow them, is
one of the greatest spectacles on earth. The Great Migration pattern follows a
500-mile route between Kenya and Tanzania, reaching its climax in the
Southern Serengeti from December through to February. From May to July,
during the dry season, the herds start drifting to the west towards Lake Victoria
and back into Kenya. Ngorongoro Crater serves as home to a host of animals,
including big game as well as astonishing birdlife. Nearby, trace the footsteps
of man’s earliest ancestors at Olduvai Gorge.

Here too, are some of Africa's most famous sites - Mount Kilimanjaro the
highest mountain in Africa, the island of Zanzibar and the great lakes - Victoria,
Tanganyika and Malawi (Nyasa) - which form the country's boundaries.

In the north, Masai tribes strive to maintain and share their cultural traditions
with visitors. Both Lake Manyara Reserve and Tarangire Park feature fabulous
bird-watching opportunities.  Southern Tanzania’s lesser known game parks
such as Ruaha, Katavi and Mikumi National Parks are still uncrowded and
present travelers with quieter and more personal encounters with nature and
wildlife.
Designated a World Heritage Site, the Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact
volcanic crater with one of the largest concentrations of wildlife in Africa.

Dar es Salaam is the largest city and the political and economic capital of
Tanzania. Located in a quiet bay off the Indian Ocean coast, the city has grown
in economic importance to become a prosperous centre of the entire East
African region. Its bustling harbour is the main port in Tanzania. Restaurants,
shops, office buildings, and government buildings are all a common features
of Tanzania’s urban centre.

Zanzibar and Pemba are the 2 principal islands, which are known as the "Spice
Islands" because of their history as producers of cloves and their position on
the ancient spice routes. It also offers some of the best beaches in the world.

Many of the winding streets and high townhouses of old Stone Town remain
unchanged and visitors can walk between the sultan’s palace, the House of
Wonders, the Portuguese fort and gardens, the merchants’ houses, and the
Turkish baths of the old city. Zanzibar also has a lot to offer historically;
culturally and its conservation efforts are also worth a visit.
