About Tanzania

A Many splendoured land of untamed beauty and riotous wildlife.

‘The views were immensely wide, everything that you saw made for greatness and freedom and unequalled nobility...Karen Blixen, ‘Out of Africa'.

The vast and beautiful country of Tanzania, locked between the shores of Lake Victoria and the shimmering Indian Ocean, is world-renowned for her quite extraordinary abundance of wildlife and fabulously unspoiled vistas. It is also home both to the exotic spice island of Zanzibar and the magnificent snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, which, at 5,896 meters, is the highest freestanding mountain in the world.

Some 100,000 sq km of Tanzania's area is devoted to her national reserves. Amongst the better known are the endless plains of the Serengeti, host to the global marvel of the annual migration, and the massive wilderness of the untamed and largely undiscovered Selous. Finally there is the ‘eighth wonder of the world', the enthralling Ngorongoro Crater.
