authentic african safariIn layman’s terms, Tanzania is simply amazing. When you think of Tanzania you might picture a march of a thousand wildebeests during their Serengeti migration. You might think of a happy family of elephants crossing the muddy, wide Tarangire River, a healthy pride of lions catching some sunrays in the Ngorongoro Crater, or a flock of bright pink flamingos getting lunch on the banks of Lake Natron. These images that might come to mind are not unreasonable, and can be put to life during your visit to Tanzania.
We have listed some statistics to show you just how fantastic of a safari destination Tanzania is:
25 percent of Tanzania’s surface area has been allotted to conservation, with the well-known Serengeti National Park and astonishingly vast Selous Game Reserve which provides an array of protected areas which 20 percent of Africa’s large mammal population calls home.
Tanzania is home to the highest and fifth highest peaks on the continent. Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru, respectively.
The “spice island” of Zanzibar is the quintessential example of the Indian Ocean coastline, providing many magazine-worthy beaches, amazing diving areas, and mysterious medieval ruins.
Tanzania hosts the best location for wild chimpanzee tracking at Gombe Stream and Mahale Mountains National Parks.
No matter where you travel in Tanzania you are likely to hear the locals throw around the word “Karibu!” The locals are always smiling and will welcome you with this heartfelt greeting!
