    Tanzania is the only country in the world to protect more than 25% of its land so game viewing experiences are widely regarded as the best in Africa. It is the place to see seemingly endless herds of wildebeest and zebra trekking across the plains on their annual migration followed by the predatory lions, leopard, cheetah and Hyena.

    It is elephant country, boasting some of the largest populations in the world. While at Gombe and Mahale Mountains,is the home to groups of chimpanzees now so rarely seen in the wild.

    Both Tanzania mainland and Zanzibar islands boast beautiful beaches- hundreds of miles of palm-fringed sands overlooking the Indian Ocean. Its cities are relaxed and friendly. Its huge lakes, Victoria, Tanganyika and Nyasa are bountiful with fish. Its mountains are massive and mysterious and include Mount Meru, Ol Doinyo Lengai, Usambara Mountains and the Mount Kilimanjaro the ‘Roof of Africa’ and the tallest free-standing mountain in the world.

    Yet this, the largest country in East Africa, is untouched by the holiday making hordes of mass tourism. It was in Tanzania that Stanley uttered those famous words “Dr Livingstone I presume” when he tracked down the Scottish missionary and explorer after a long trek into the interior. Indeed Tanzania was a magnet for several Victorian explorers who made epic journeys of discovery in search of the source of the River Nile.

    Today’s visitors are able to explore the largest country in East Africa, and see its remarkable Attractions including Natural and Cultural Heritage sites with none of the hardship but all of the adventure of those early pioneers.
