Tanzania

Karibu, Welcome to Tanzania—The Soul of Africa!
There are many outstanding adventure travel destinations in Africa, but there is only one Tanzania. Here stretch the plains of the Serengeti, the snows of Kilimanjaro, and the mythic isle of Zanzibar. For anyone who has ever dreamt of Africa, those names are poetic invocations, calling up in the mind’s eye all the fabled attractions of the continent itself.

Some of Our Favorite Places

Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Crater
Ngorongoro crater heralded as the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ is an awe-inspiring caldera; enclosed by sheer walls that contains a unique biosphere for its inhabitants. Famous for having the highest density of wildlife in Africa, this is your best chance to view an endangered Black Rhino, leopards and beautiful black-maned lions, as well as the traditional ‘Big Five’.

Elephants, Tarangire
