Tanzania

Mountains, safaris and spice islands

Tanzania is your quintessential African destination. From endless savannahs playing host to hordes of wildebeest migrating, the majesty of the Serengeti and the snow-capped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania offers adventures for everybody.

But it's not just about the wildlife. Tanzania has more than 500 miles of sublime coastline and a rich history as a spice route, while the legendary Maasai warriors still stand proud.

The Great Wildebeest Migration

Exploring Africa’s biggest wildlife phenomenon

The vast grasslands of the Serengeti and the golden plateau of Masai Mara are a unique sanctuary for African wildlife, and the arena for one of the greatest wonders of the natural world; the great wildebeest migration. The sheer scale of this event is breathtaking. More than two million wildebeest on the move at once, joined by almost one million zebras and gazelle.
