From Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, to Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa, visitors will find a country with vast and breathtaking vistas. The complete African safari experience is truly represented in game reserves and national parks such as the Serengeti, the annual setting of the wondrous wildebeest migration; Ngorongoro Crater, the unique, biodiverse amphitheater; Selous Game Reserve, the vast and least well known park, and the amazing array of birdlife at Lake Manyara. More remote are Katavi, where you will be blown away by untouched African wildlife and Mahale, where you can trek to see the wild chimpanzees that make their home here.

East Africa has also been called the cradle of mankind. Early hominid footprints which date back an estimated 3.5 million years were discovered at Laetoli in Tanzania and a 1.7 million year old Zinjanthropus boisei skull was found at Olduvai Gorge. Tanzania makes a great budget oriented destination as parks are located in close proximity to each other and therefore easily reached on driving safaris.

And not to be forgotten are the "Spice Islands" off Tanzania's coast, collectively known as Zanzibar. Zanzibar was for years the center of an ancient trading empire with vessels coming from as far as Persia, India and China. Stonetown, a UNESCO world heritage site, will enlighten your senses with Swahili culture. There are many white sand beaches where you can spend relaxing days scuba diving, snorkeling, beach combing and eating fresh seafood.
