The Serengeti

The Serengeti National Park is truly worthy of its World Heritage status. With 1.5 million hectares of savannah, it is still possible to find yourself the only human audience to the awe inspiring wildlife. Famous for the amazing migration of 2 million wildebeests with hundreds of thousands of gazelle and zebra, the accompanying predators create a dynamic not to be seen anywhere else.

Ngorongoro Crater

Once part of the huge Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area covers a staggering 8,000km2 of some of the world's most unchanged wildlife sanctuaries. The biggest feature of this incredible landscape is the Ngorongoro Crater, the world's largest unfilled volcanic caldera.

Tarangire National Park

Located in the Manyara Region and named after the only water source for wild animals during dry seasons - the Tarangire River - this national park is superb for wildlife. During dry season giraffes, buffalo, zebra, wildebeest, lions and hippos are common. Bird life is thriving and comprehensive, with Tarangire being home to over 500 species ranging from Ostriches to Lovebirds.

Lake Manyara

A Lake once described by Ernest Hemingway as "the loveliest I had seen in Africa", Lake Manyara is full of stunning scenery. From the moment you enter the entrance gate, you are immersed in a lush groundwater forest, watched by relaxing baboons as blue monkeys dart in-between the ancient trees.

Selous Game Reserve

Covering 50,000 square kilometres, the Selous Game Reserve is one of the largest protected areas in Africa and as such it remains largely undisturbed by human impact. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is home to some of the highest concentrations of important species including elephant, black rhinoceros, cheetah, giraffe, hippopotamus and crocodile.

Mount Kilimanjaro

The tallest free-standing mountain in the world and the highest peak in Africa, Kilimanjaro is world famous for it's accessible summits. It's snowy peak, referred to as Kibo by the local Wachagga people, stands assertively wrapped in clouds overseeing the continent.

Ruaha National Park

Ruaha National Park is one of the largest parks in Africa. 2008 saw the Usangu game reserve, along with other important wetlands in the the Usangu basin, incorporated into Ruaha making it the largest park in Tanzania. This region is one of Africa's best kept secrets with an astonishing variety of both plant and animal life.

Katavi National Park

Katavi National Park is a remote safari location but the effort taken to reach Tanzania's third largest National Park will be repaid many times over. Created in 1974, Katavi is a truly special place where you feel you have travelled back in time thousands of years. The remote location is less frequently visited than other parks in East Africa, which has left Katavi almost unchanged.

Lake Tanganyika

Lake Tanganyika is a true marvel of the world. The world's longest, second largest and second deepest freshwater lake. This mammoth body of water spans four countries - Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Burundi, and Zambia with Tanzania possessing 46% along it's north west border.

Zanzibar

Zanzibar is an archipelago in the Indian Ocean, 15-30 miles off the east coast of the Tanzanian mainland. Although consisting of over 50 islands and islets, Zanzibar is largely made up of two islands, Unguja (the bigger and most populated of the two - often referred to as Zanzibar) and Pemba.
