HIGHLIGHTS OF TANZANIA
Sunrise on the Serengeti. Acacia trees like black cut-outs against the sky, and huge herds of wildlife roaming the savannah. One of the best ways to experience it is on a hot-air balloon ride.
Boat safaris and birding in the Selous. One of Tanzania’s most diverse reserves, the Selous is home to myriad birdlife including pelican, heron, egret, and the African spoonbill.
The magnificent wildebeest migration. To see the super-herd at its most dramatic: leaping and thrashing its way across the river, stay at Grumeti River Lodge or Governor’s Camp.
Diving and snorkelling off the castaway paradise of Mafia Island. January to March is whale shark season – a diving opportunity not to be missed.
Wandering Stone Town in Zanzibar. The maze of cobbled alleys, nose-tingling spice markets, and an alchemic mix of cultures make Stone Town an absolute pleasure to explore.
Tracking chimps in the Mahale Mountains. Man’s primate relatives are just one of the treasures in Tanzania’s most beautiful and remote parks, along with yellow baboon, vervet monkeys, and the black and white colobus.
Ultra wild safaris in Ruaha and Katavi. The wilderness, and then there’s these two reserves – heaven for trailblazing safari-goers.
