put your feet up and browse through our amazing tours in Tanzania
Tanzania is located in eastern Africa, bordering the Indian Ocean, between Kenya and Mozambique. The nation of Tanzania was formed in 1964 when shortly after independence, Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged. Tanzania has a population of about 38 million and is home to the highest free standing mountains on earth, Kilimanjaro.
Kilimanjaro is also one of the 7 summits and due to its placement, just 3 degrees south of the equator, is also the closest point in the world to the sun. Kilimanjaro is bordered by three of the largest lakes on the continent: Lake Victoria (the world's second-largest freshwater lake) in the north, Lake Tanganyika (the world's second deepest) in the west, and Lake Nyasa in the southwest.
Apart from Kilimanjaro, Tanzania's other attractions include Safari tours to the Ngorongoro crater, Mt Meru, Lake Munyara, Tarangire and Arusha National Parks, where wildlife is abundant. Note that the migration of animals at the Serengeti cannot be guaranteed, as it is influenced by the weather conditions, which normally vary from year to year. As such, each year’s migration patterns are different. Records show that this July the animals were on the western Serengeti while from August and September it appears as though the animals will be on the north west of the Serengeti.
