Tours in Tanzania

Situated in East Africa, just south of the equator, Tanzania has a range of beautiful and spectacular landscapes. From its deserted Indian Ocean beaches (and the romantic 'spice island' of Zanzibar) to the highest peak on the continent, the snow-capped Kilimanjaro, tours in Tanzania have it all.

Tanzania boasts some of the world's best wildlife viewing experiences within its protected areas, including the Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti, and Tarangire National Park. These regions teem with wildlife, offering ample chances to witness a multitude of Africa's iconic large animal species. It's here that the captivating Maasai people, known for their cattle-herding traditions, thrive amidst the sprawling savannah landscapes, perpetuating their semi-nomadic lifestyle. With an array of adventure-filled holiday choices, ranging from invigorating treks, summiting Africa's highest peak, and thrilling wildlife safaris, Tanzania caters to families and regular groups alike, cementing its status as a top African destination.

Highlights of Tanzania

An unforgettable experience that will stay with you forever is the opportunity to meet the country's last hunter-gather tribe, the Hadzabe. Engaging in their routines, from crafting arrows to preparing meals and even participating in archery practice, will immerse you in their way of life and provide you with an understanding of how they live. Seeing this in combination with the remarkable landscapes and the mighty Kilimanjaro will be something you never forget.

From Safari to Summit in Tanzania

Summit Kilimanjaro

Climbing Kilimanjaro stands as a remarkable highlight due to its unique blend of natural beauty, personal accomplishment and shared camaraderie. The mountain's stunning landscape, accessibility for dedicated trekkers, and the sense of triumph upon reaching the summit create an unforgettable experience that leaves a lasting impact.

Whether it is a quick ascent to the summit for those more experienced trekkers, or a longer circuit for those needing to acclimatise, summiting Mount Kilimanjaro should be an experience at the top of the bucket list for all outdoor enthusiasts.

Discover Wildlife in the Serengeti

No trip to Tanzania would be complete without catching a glimpse of some of the world's most incredible wildlife. The vast and diverse landscapes, ranging from the iconic Serengeti plains to the lush Ngorongoro Crater, provide an unparalleled backdrop for encountering some of the planet's most magnificent creatures. Tanzania's national parks and reserves teem with an astounding array of wildlife, from the majestic Big Five to countless other species. Witnessing these animals in their natural habitats, and going about their daily routines, creates a sense of connection and awe that few experiences can rival. 

Moreover, the cultural dimension adds depth to the adventure. Interacting with local communities, like the Maasai, not only provides insights into their traditions but also shows their delicate balance between humanity and the animal kingdom.
