Tanzania is an all-encompassing destination, from the snowy peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro to the paradisiacal beaches of the Zanzibar Archipelago.

Located on Africa's east coast within the Great Rift Valley, Tanzania is renowned for its stunning natural beauty and geographical diversity, providing incredible opportunities for exploration. Luxury tours range from safari holidays through the great plains of the Serengeti, home to Africa's "Big Five", to chimpanzee tracking through the forests of Mahale National Park. Tanzania's vast wildlife populations can be encountered across the country, with flamingos and tree-climbing lions found in Lake Manyara, water-dwelling creatures such as crocodiles and hippos in the Selous Game Reserve, and large prides of lions and elephant herds inhabiting the dramatic landscapes of the Ruaha National Park.

The islands of Zanzibar, located on Tanzania's Indian Ocean coastline, are excellent for visitors looking for a tropical beach holiday. The white sand beaches and luxury resorts make it one of the country's most attractive regions, with its pristine coral reefs being particularly ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving,

Things to do in
Tanzania
Safari in the Serengeti

Nowhere answers the call of the wild quite like Tanzania's Serengeti. The iconic image of a lone acacia tree silhouetted against a bright, orange sunset has become synonymous with this fabled destination.

The Serengeti is home to not only the "Big Five" (elephants, lions, leopards, cape buffaloes and rhinoceros), but also to the Great Migration of wildebeests and zebra, and a wide array of other wildlife that are native to this historic continent. Thrilling morning, afternoon and evening game drives will offer plenty of opportunities to see these astounding creatures, with no two safaris being the same. 

Boating Safaris on the Rufiji River

Experience Tanzania's wildlife from a new perspective on a boat safaris on the Rufiji River. With an expert guide, you'll have the opportunity of sighting different wildlife to what you would see on a game drive, including hippos, crocodiles, and a myriad of bird life. Being on the river is a refreshing contrast to the land; enjoy as the scenery changes from tall, hardwood trees to sandy river banks.

Climb Mount Kilimanjaro

Not an easy feat and definitely reserved for the more energetic and adventurous traveller, but if you love hiking, exploring and ticking off bucket-list worthy experiences, very little will compare to the thrill of conquering Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania.

Mount Kilimanjaro is not only Africa’s tallest mountain, but also the world’s tallest lone-standing mountain. A climb this huge is not to be taken lightly and will require a bit of preparation to ensure everything goes as smoothly and easily as possible, but it is said to be easier than climbing Mount Everest and promises absolutely breathtaking views at the summit.

Hot Air Balloon Safari

A hot air balloon safari over the vast plains of the Serengeti is a must-do when visiting Tanzania, as it offers an entirely new perspective of the park that cannot be appreciated from any other vantage point.

A sunrise charter across the plains is silent except for the occasional blast from the burners and distant sounds of birds and wildlife that dwell below; it’s truly exhilarating. Opt for a sunset journey and you can sip champagne as you watch the sun drop below the horizon and cast enchanting shades of orange and red into the sky.

Ngorongoro Crater

Considered the Cradle of Mankind, Ngorongoro Crater was formed when a giant volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself, and has since become a natural meeting point for all the animals in the Serengeti of Tanzania.

Game drives into this incredible natural enclosure promises unmatched views and personal interactions with the "Big Five" and many other animals. You'll also have the chance to learn more about the origins of humankind, with fossils being discovered here that date back nearly 1.8 million years ago to the very first stages of human development. 

Bush Breakfasts

You can spend your days however you see fit while you enjoy your stay in Tanzania, and we think the best way to reward an early start after a thrilling game drive is with a luxurious bush breakfast.

Bush breakfasts are often enjoyed straight after a game safari, and the camps' dedicated staff will set up a lavish banquet complete with incredible dishes and maybe even a glass of champagne! Another great way to start the day is with an al fresco breakfast at the camp overlooking the animals drinking from the nearby waterholes. 

Guided Walking Safari

Admittedly the thrill of catching a glimpse of the Big Five on a game drive is what draws so many to plains of the Serengeti in Tanzania, but the guided nature walks that the camps offer are always a fun, educational and more relaxing alternative.

Set aside one of your mid-mornings or early afternoons for a guided nature walk and you'll discover so much more that Tanzania has to offer. Not only will you get an even closer look at the Serengeti's incredible landscape, but you'll also get to see the smaller ecosystems that call this destination home.

Oldonyo Lengai Volcano

This one's for the thrill-seekers; if climbing mountains doesn’t quite cut it for, how about hiking up an active volcano in Tanzania?

Oldonyo Langai Volcano rises majestically out of the Great Rift Valley and beckons the daring for one of the most thrilling hikes of a lifetime. Known by the Masai people as the Mountain of God, this climb is not an easy feat and is definitely reserved for more seasoned hikers, but the rewards you reap in the form of breathtaking views is unrivalled.

Sleep Out Under the Stars

We offer an incredible range of 5-star luxury camps that put you in the heart of the Serengeti, but those looking for a truly unforgettable experience can enjoy a sleep-out with a bed quite literally under the stars in Tanzania.

Pick out the constellations in the stars from the comfort of a luxurious outdoor tent or king-sized bed, as you listen to the gentle hum of the sprawling savannah. This once-in-a-lifetime experience will delight romantics and the wild at heart.
