Tanzania at a glance

Welcome to Tanzania, a country where adventure awaits at every turn. Whether you fancy the challenge of climbing Kilimanjaro or would rather stick to steady land on safaris where you can see the circle of life take place on vast plains, bushland and around incredible lakes, Tanzania has something to offer for everyone. But you can't talk about Tanzania without mentioning Kilimanjaro, the highest point in Africa. Whether you climb it or not, its beauty can be enjoyed by all, even if you just stick to its surrounding slopes.

Speaking of wildlife, Tanzania is home to a wide variety of animals. The Ngorongoro Crater is a must-visit destination, where you can witness the coexistence of humans and animals in delicate balance. Spot hippos, flamingos, buffaloes, zebras, elephants, wildebeest, lions, cheetahs, hyenas and even rhinoceroses. The Masai people also tend to their herds in this area, which just adds to the cultural experience.

If you're looking for something a bit different - perhaps a coral-lined beach or the chance to swim with whale sharks, head to the Tanzanian coast where the islands of Pemba and Mafia offer tropical treats in all forms. From cabbage coral gardens and intricate macro life to some the biggest fish in the sea, diving in Tanzania offers something for every type of diver and explorer.
