About TanzaniaTanzania is arguably Africa's greatest safari and adventure experience. Some of our most vivid images of Africa come from Tanzania: its snow-capped Mt. Kilimanjaro, rhinos silhouetted against the beautiful scenery of Ngorongoro Crater, thousands of wildebeest thundering over the Serengeti Plains, and the white sand beaches that stretch along the Indian ocean.
While most visitors focus on the famous Northern safari circuit made up of Arusha National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Tarangire National Park, Ngornogoro Crater and the Serengeti, Tanzania has much more to offer. Explore the less-traveled paths of the coastline as you move south into Swahili culture, where African and Arab customs meld together and little has changed over the centuries. Journey into the even wilder side of Tanzania's wildlife by visiting the chimpanzees in Mahale or Gombe, or locations such as Katavi, Ruaha, and the Selous which are crawling with a variety of species.
Wherever you go, take advantage of the opportunity to get to know Tanzanians: interact with them and immerse yourself in their culture. Sample their unique and widely varied cuisine, enjoying dishes such as mshikaki (marinated beef) and nyama choma (grilled meat) and snacks such as maandazi (bread rolls) and vitumbua (rice patties). Stop by the Tanzanian markets and shops and appreciate their craftsmanship. Revel in all of these moments and welcome the opportunity to know the Tanzanian people, as it is these experiences that connect you deeply to your visit in Tanzania, and often wind up being the unexpected highlight of your trip.
