Situated on the Indian Ocean just south of the equator, the wilds of Tanzania attract photographers, adventure travellers, retirees, divers, animal lovers, archaeologists and beach lovers alike.
The country’s political stability and established tourist trade combined with an unspoiled frontier make it ideal for every traveller – from the most adventuresome wanderer to the uninitiated greenhorn.
Most visitors to Tanzania visit the north-eastern and northern coastal regions. This area is home to some of the most famous wildlife preserves on the planet including the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.
Mt. Kilimanjaro – the highest point in Africa – calls northern Tanzania home, as does Olduvai Gorge, where George and Mary Leakey discovered Australopithecus, the oldest known ancestor of man.
In addition, the spice islands of Zanzibar and Pemba just off the north-eastern coast entice many adventurers with their rich, romantic histories and ancient cities.
For those seeking the less travelled road, western and southern Tanzania are home to vast conservation areas and many cultures that are not experienced by travelling the northern circuit. For example, observing and photographing chimpanzees in the wild is a joy reserved for visitors to Tanzania’s western conservation areas. The famous studies of Jane Goodall were carried out in Gombe Stream National Park. A visit to Lake Victoria affords glimpses of different ways of living, a sampling of freshwater seafood and fantastically unspoiled islands.
