We’ve sent travelers to Tanzania ﹘ and only Tanzania ﹘ since 1981 because it is the world’s premier safari destination.
Tanzania is, and always has been, a safe and peaceful country. It’s often referred to as “the Switzerland of Africa” because it’s calm and stable. But Tanzania is more than just safe. It’s beautiful! Filled with world-renowned landmarks and incredible wildlife, it’s a country you’ll fall in love with at first sight.
With 25% of its land devoted to land and wildlife conservation, Tanzania is truly unrivaled in its breadth and depth of wildlife. There are countless reasons a nature enthusiast would choose Tanzania.
The Great Migration
This continuous movement of some 2 million grazing animals through the Serengeti is one of the world’s largest wildlife events.
Big Cat Populations
Tanzania is home to about half the lion population in all of Africa. They’re joined by cheetahs, leopards, servals and more. If your goal is seeing big cats in the wild, Tanzania is your destination.
The “Big Five”
The lion, leopard, African buffalo, endangered black rhino, and elephant make up the legendary Big Five. Tanzania is one of the last places on earth you can spot them all in one day.
Tanzania hosts over 1,100 different bird species, from familiar types, like doves, swallows, and ostriches, to more exotic species, like the Egyptian goose or the spot-breasted ibis.
The warmth, kindness, and generosity of the Tanzanian people is truly remarkable. Perhaps that’s because of their remarkable history. Tanzania transformed from a former colonial power to a democracy without the strife that has plagued so many other African nations.
When you think of Africa, iconic images of certain peoples and places probably spring to mind, but Tanzania is a changing place, one where traditional cultures are constantly evolving and blending with modern society.
The people that call this amazing country home have come together to form a rich culture that is intriguing, unique, and always changing
A Wealth of
There’s nothing quite like seeing a majestic, untamed animal in its natural habitat. But in Tanzania, the scenery is so breathtaking it often takes center stage.
Located on the equator, Tanzania boasts a wide variety of climates and ecosystems. Experience the hot, dry grasslands of the Serengeti, the arctic landscapes near the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro and almost everything in between.
Best of all, because much of Tanzania is preserved as national parks or conservation areas, these landscapes provide a pristine glimpse of the world as it once was.
