Travel to Tanzania for the quintessential safari experience. The Serengeti Plains are the centre stage for the greatest wildlife show on earth, the Great Migration. This spectacular phenomenon moves around the Serengeti all year―providing the perfect year-round destination for safari enthusiasts. The migration attracts many other forms of wildlife. Expect to see an abundance of animals at various times of the year.
Tanzania is situated on the east coast of Africa, and offers an abundance of environments to explore and wildlife to encounter. Common sightings include flamingos on Lake Manyara; or hippo, elephants and giraffe in the Ngorongoro Crater, not to mention the predators that the herds attract; huge herds of elephant in the Selous, Ruaha and Tarangire reserves; and of course the great migration which moves though the Serengeti, providing a number of spectacular sitings. Tanzania is also home to the highest free-standing mountain in the world, and the highest mountain on the continent, Mount Kilimanjaro. If you are looking for a new adventure, and are a keen and fit hiker, a climb can be included in your itinerary.
