Tanzania is paradise for nature and animal lovers.

Tanzania is home to some of Africa’s biggest tourist destinations such as the towering giant of Mount Kilimanjaro. The rich Serengeti National Park where you can see what gamekeepers call ‘the big five’, African elephants, lions, buffalo, leopards and rhinoceros.


Also, Tanzania has the most incredible conservation areas such as the Ngorongoro Crater. It is brimming with natural wonders including grasslands, swamps, lakes and rivers.
