is one of our favourite countries.
The northern parks area, centred on Serengeti
, is without doubt the best location for proper overland safari, providing the most awesome combination of scenery, wildlife and culture.
Nearby Mount Kilimanjaro
is arguably the world's greatest outdoor challenge.
Both of these are within a short hopper flight of wonderful tropical beaches on the islands of Zanzibar
Whilst to the south and west are the superb fly-in reserves of Ruaha
, the latter being perhaps the best location for primate interaction in Africa
Despite this, Tanzania
remains relatively untouristic in the core areas and truly wild beyond.
We often say that first safaris should come with the health warning ... "what you are about to experience may become addictive". This is probably more true in Tanzania
than anywhere else, this country will most likely cause you to fall in love with Africa
