Tanzania

Land of the Serengeti

Everyone who comes to this expansive east African nation has heard about the wild treasures of the Serengeti and the imposing twin peaks of Kilimanjaro. But those who look closer will find that Tanzania offers more than just scenic beauty. If you come without booking your game drives in advance, you’ll probably head to Arusha, the “Safari Capital of East Africa,” where Range Rovers, tourists, and traditionally dressed Maasai warriors mingle freely among the souvenir stalls and government buildings. After getting their fill of wildlife, most travelers’ first thought is to head for Dar es Salaam and immediately book passage to Zanzibar, an archipelago in the Indian Ocean. However, despite its crowded, bustling streets and frenzied pace of life, “Dar,” as it is known, is no mere transport junction. Once a former center of Islamic learning and trade, it is now one of Africa’s most diverse cities, with a breathtaking array of ethnicities, cuisines, and architecture.

  • Tanzania is home to the world renown Serengeti national park. This 5 days Tanzania safari will take you to Lake Manya national park, the Serengeti where you will do a hot air balloon safari and finally to the Ngorongoro crater. Activities include game viewing, birding and adventure tours. Tanzania is a wildlife lovers' paradise and Africa's prime game-viewing country. From the vast plains of the Serengeti in the north, to the chimpanzee sanctuaries of Gombe and Mahale in the west and the lesser-known 'jewels' of Ruaha and the Selous in the south, Tanzania's biodiversity is truly breathtaking. The sheer numbers of birds and animals - there are an estimated 32,000 elephants in Selous Game Reserve alone - are testament to the fact that almost a quarter of the country's total land area is protected, either as national parks, reserves or conservation areas. And research projects carried out in these protected areas continue to make an impact on science at large: from Marion East's study of Serengeti spotted hyenas, which shows how this female-dominated society 'commute', often hundreds of kilometres, to their prey; to the Mkomazi Research Project, a collaborative study of the flora and fauna in Mkomazi Game Reserve, by Tanzania's Department of Wildlife, the Royal Geographical Society and Oxford University, which has yielded a number of new species.For more information go to www.tanzaniasafaristz.com
