           Tanzania.

Tanzania is one of the oldest known continuously inhabited areas on Earth. Situated just south of the Equator, it is now the largest country in East Africa. Tanzania was formed as a sovereign state in 1964 through the union of the separate states of Tanganyika and Zanzibar.

 

Few destinations in Africa can rival Tanzania's diversity of wildlife, cultures and landscapes.

 

From the classic savannah destinations of the iconic Serengeti, Tarangire and Ngorongoro Crater to the beaches and coral reefs of Zanzibar and the tropical coast, a Tanzania safari holiday delivers one massive experience after another.

 

For the active travelers Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Meru and Ol Donyo Lengai offer  fantastic and rewarding hiking challenges.
