Half the size of Western Europe, Tanzania is East Africa’s largest nation. It is a massive country with a kaleidoscope of landscapes, wildlife and people. Over a quarter of Tanzania is made up of National Parks, Game Reserves and controlled areas. For the most part nature still reigns supreme and man comes a distant second for a change.
Whilst the late dry season can bring huge herds of elephants to Tarangire, the spectacular migration of wildebeest into the vast Serengeti is a sight to behold. Further East is the Ngorongoro Crater, an unequalled caldera which reveals on its floor a magical world teeming with animals and spectacular views from its crater rim.The Southern parks, Selous and Ruaha, remain off the beaten track and are immersed in vast wilderness for those who really want to avoid fellow humans.
