Located in East Africa, just below Kenya, Tanzania is one of our favourite destinations which boasts an abundance of environments to explore and wildlife to encounter: from big tuskers in the Ngorongoro Crater to the Great Migration in the Serengeti.
The Great Migration is one of the most spectacular events of the animal kingdom. Millions of animals make the annual migration from Tanzania to Kenya in search of water and grazing. Wildebeest, zebra and gazelle travel in hoards to reach more fertile pastures and their instinct to do this is so strong that they will risk their lives during their perilous journey crossing the raging torrents of crocodile-infested waters. Cheetah, painted wolves, lion and hyena wait patiently, ready to pick off the weak and the weary.
As the Migration moves and the season's change, it's all about being in the right place at the right time, and that's where we step in. Speak to a member of our team, and they will make sure you are in prime position.
Tanzania is also home to the highest mountain on the continent: Mount Kilimanjaro and some of the most famous beaches and pristine coral reefs in Africa across Zanzibar.
