About Tanzania

AN EXTRAORDINARY COUNTRY FROM NORTH TO SOUTH

Tanzania is an extraordinary country of contrasts that boasts some of the most famous national parks in the world, with prolific game, great herds and numerous predators that roam the sprawling plains. It is also adorned with tropical islands such as Zanzibar, where pristine, white beaches and turquoise waters can lull you into relaxed bliss following an exhilarating Serengeti safari.



Tanzania is a wildlife Eden. The fabled migration, along with the other seasonal wonder of the mass birthing of the wildebeest, should be on the ‘Bucket List’ of every true wildlife enthusiast. The Serengeti plains, teeming with up to a million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebra is a sight that will linger forever. Sightings like this are very much in demand, and it is to be expected that multiple vehicles and visitors will be present at such events. What better way, then, to relax and recline after such an experience, than to head to the nearby paradise of Zanzibar, where world-class accommodations, gorgeous beaches and a laid-back island atmosphere await?.



Climate

Tanzania has a tropical climate but its diverse topography results in regional variations in temperatures. In the highlands, temperatures range between 10 and 20 °C (50 and 68 °F) during cold and hot seasons respectively. The rest of the country has temperatures rarely falling lower than 20 °C (68 °F).

Tanzania contains some 20% of the species of Africa’s large mammal population, found across its reserves, conservation areas, marine parks, and 17 national parks, spread over an area of more than 42,000 square kilometres (16,000 sq mi) and forming approximately 38 percent of the country’s territory. Iconic images of elephants beneath snow-capped mountains, prowling cheetah, majestic lion and of course the great herds of wildebeest and zebra are just a few examples of what lies in wait in this beautiful country.
