Tanzania’s Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater are stunning examples of nature untouched. Witness the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra as they travel hundreds of miles, following the rains and fresh vegetation. Antelope, buffalo, giraffe, lion, leopard and African dog abound in this plentiful land. Enjoy the local culture and traditional lifestyle of the Masai the same way the first Western explorers did over 150 years ago.
Tanzania also boasts the highest peak in all of Africa. Mt. Kilimanjaro explodes from the surrounding grassland to a height of 5,895 m (19,341 ft). Trekking Kili is an adventure that takes a traveler through multiple climates – grassland, forest, desert, glacier – over a 5-day hike. Located off the east coast of Tanzania, the island of Zanzibar contains hundreds of years of history as an Arab trading post for East Africa and its pristine, white-sand beaches are some of the best in the world.
