The East African country of Tanzania is one of Africa’s top safari destinations, and it’s easy to see why. It is home to wildlife-filled game parks galore (including the famous Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater) with those iconic vast open plains. Tanzania is the stuff nature documentaries are made of. In addition to amazing wilderness areas, Tanzania also boasts Africa’s tallest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, which is a listing on many an adventure traveller’s bucket list. Off the coast is the beautiful tropical island of Zanzibar, which lures visitors with its white-sand beaches, clear warm water full of fish and exotic culture – offering a relaxing beach break as a perfect complement to game viewing and mountain climbing.
