Tanzania, is also known as Africa’s visual jewel. It is a country of natural brilliance, spectacular wildlife, and seductive white sandy beaches. The country is so wealthy that it would practically take years to document all the resources. Not only is the country proud to bear witness to the highest and largest free-standing mountain in the world but also to the rich and diverse wildlife concentrations, mineral and other resources available.
Apart from being the ideal bush and beach destination, visitors can witness the mighty herds of the Great Migration in the Serengeti. Tanzania and Zanzibar together offer a magnificent chance to visit the geological wonders, ancient towns & archaeological sites. While visiting the country, one has the chance to experience not only beautiful sandy pristine coastline with fringing coral reefs, but also the magic of historic Stone Town with its winding cobbled streets and Omani style architecture said to be the only functioning ancient town in East Africa.
Tanzania has a tropical climate but has regional variations due to topography. In the highlands, temperatures range between 10 and 20 °C (50 and 68 °F) during cold and hot seasons respectively. The rest of the country has temperatures rarely falling lower than 20 °C (68 °F). The hottest period extends between November and February (25–31 °C or 77.0–87.8 °F) while the coldest period occurs between May and August (15–20 °C or 59–68 °F).
Tanzania contains some 20 percent of the species of Africa’s large mammal population, found across its reserves, conservation areas, marine parks, and 17 national parks, spread over an area of more than 42,000 square kilometers (16,000 sq mi) and forming approximately 38 percent of the country’s territory. There are over 10 mountains and hills in Tanzania including the highest mountain in Africa; Mount Kilimanjaro (highest 5895 meters), Meru (4565 meters), Hanang (3417 meters) and Ol Donyo Lengai(2962 meters). Arusha is the Tanzanian hub of ‘safari activity’, covering the Northern Parks; most famous of which is the Serengeti National Park. The capital City of Tanzania is Dodoma with the commercial hub being Dar es Salaam.
The most common savannah regions includes the largest National Park in the Africa Serengeti, Mikumi, Tarangire and Ruaha National parks as well as the incredible Ngorongoro Crater. The Great Rift valley offers continues to offer an abundance of water and birdlife just like in Kenya. Common lake regions include Lakes Tanganyika, Natron, Manyara and the source of the Nile Lake Victoria.
The East African Coast touches the Indian Ocean, thus ensuring year-round warm waters and pristine beaches. Famous beach destinations in Tanzania include; Dar es Salaam, Kilwa, and the Islands of Zanzibar, Pemba, Mafia, Chumbe and Fanjove. The evocative mix of people and cultures in Tanzania creates a beautiful tapestry of memories for the visitor. Swahili and English are the languages most spoken. The people of Tanzania are known as some of the most hospitable and polite people on earth.
Wilderness Areas – From the North with its jewel, the Serengeti National Park to the South, and the raw savannah of Ruaha National Park, Criss crossing lakes and craters, every safari is different and will leave you wanting more.
Mountains and Highlands – From Meru to Kilimanjaro and the highlands of Iringa and Mbeya. Its an exhilarating journey that will test your limits and leave you feeling more alive than ever.
Western Tanzania and Gombe Stream – Diving or live aboard on Lake Tanganyika, or Trek Chimps at Mahale, this is an area little frequented and remains the true wilderness of Tanzania.
