Rich with wilderness and plains of conservation in the renowned Kilimanjaro and Serengeti National Parks, Tanzania is mostly visited for its gathering of the Big Five game and tropical islands that feature a colourful collection of marine life.
Mount Killimanjaro National Park
Visit UNESCO World Heritage Site Kilimanjaro National Park, homing the highest point in Africa surrounding plains, mountain forests and endangered species. This magnificent park protects Mount Kilimanjaro, which is the largest freestanding volcanic structure in the entire world!
Serengeti National Park
Nature can be seen throughout the year at Serengeti National Park, scattered with plains, kopjes, woodlands and home to the great migration, incredible plant life and a spectrum of birdlife. Sprawling with eco-friendly luxury tent hotels, you can step right out into the open grasslands and embark on vehicle or walking safaris, where you’ll get to witness greater bush baby, olive baboons, African wildcat, bats, elephant shrews, cheetahs, bat-eared foxes and of course the big five animals (rhinos, leopards, elephant, lions and Cape Buffalo).
An idyllic African escape, why not retreat to Zanzibar, an archipelago of 50 idyllic islands just off of Tanzania’s coastline. Compromising of luxury resorts and a laidback lifestyle, you’ll feel a world away from the energetic landscapes of Tanzania’s sprawling National Parks. As well as being cherished for its pristine beaches, Zanzibar homes a vibrant marine life with humpback whales, bottlenose dolphins, green turtles, hawksbill turtle, white tip reef shark, napoleon wrasse, crocodile fish, octopus and much more. Some of the best places to see these magnificent animals are on a snorkeling trip to Nugwi Reefs and Mnemba Atoll Marine Park.
