The prime game viewing country
Tanzania in East Africa, home to the highest mountain on the continent – snow-peaked Mount Kilimanjaro, offers an abundance of landscapes to explore and wildlife to encounter. From a carpet of pink flamingo’s in Lake Manyara to big tuskers in the Crater of Ngorongoro and the Great Migration in the Serengeti, Tanzania is a safari dream come true.
