Tanzania – Things to do

Tanzania Attractions

The largest country in Africa, Tanzania is a land of contrasts – from striding ostriches and bulbous baobab trees to arresting mountainscapes, paradise islands, idyllic beaches and national parks that will take your breath away.  If you’re an intrepid traveller, consider a safari in the Ngorongoro Crater or a visit to the Olduvai Gorge – once named the Cradle of Humankind – a famed paleoanthropological site, celebrated for furthering our understanding of early human evolution. 

Serengeti National Park

Tanzania’s most fantastic game reserve offers vast plains with endless horizons, stretching in every direction.
