TANZANIA DELUXE SAFARI
Tanzania can be found in Eastern Africa, surrounded by Kenya and Uganda to the north, Rwanda, Burundi and the Republic of Congo to the west and Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique to the south. It also has an Indian Ocean border to its east; its own seaport which imports and exports for surrounding landlocked nations. Dodoma has been the country’s capital since 1996 as it’s government and parliament offices can be found there, however Dar es Salaam, the nation’s capital since independence and until 1996, remains the centre of business and the principle commercial city in Tanzania.
Tanzania lies just south of the equator and is thus almost always sunny. Its terrain is incredibly beautiful, lush from the sun and scattered winter showers, and alive with an abundance of wildlife. Tanzania’s magnificent wildlife is one of its strongest attractions as tourists can embark on idyllic game drives seeing a variety of different wildlife. Undoubtedly, the country’s most popular national park is the Serengeti as it’s over 14 500 square kilometres of endless rolling plains offers guests a world of splendor and tranquility.
KENYA DELUXE SAFARI
Kenya is one of the most popular African countries, renowned for its beautiful game reserves, endless lush plains and abundance of wildlife. It lies on the equator and can be found just under the horn of Africa, nestled between Somalia, Ethiopia, the Sudan, Uganda and Tanzania, with an eastern Indian Ocean coast. For a country of its size, Kenya successfully manages to pack in a variety of attractions, destinations and activities for both locals and tourists to enjoy.
BEST OF TANZANIA
Tanzania is home to the beautiful, formidable and majestic Mount Kilimanjaro; Africa’s highest peak and the world’s second tallest free standing mountain. Hiking and exploring the mountain is not for the faint-hearted, however every year thousands of adventurers travel to summit the mountain.
A trip to Tanzania will treat you to some of the most beautiful attractions in Africa; not only will you be able to set your sights on the beautiful plains and wildlife of the Serengeti and magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro, but you’ll be enchanted by the local culture and traditions, gain an inside perspective into a truly African nation, and have the chance to listen to their unique African style rumba music.
TANZANIA GOING SOUTH
If you want a superb wildlife experience in beautiful scenery and with few people, Ruaha in southern Tanzania has got to be near the top of your list.
Ruaha is an enormous national park, the largest in Tanzania, at over 2,020,000 hectares, in the heart of the country. It is defined by varied scenery including open plains, hills, baobabs and the mighty Ruaha River, diverse wildlife and remote location. Getting here requires more of an effort (it takes about 2 hours to fly here from Dar) than the better known northern parks, but those that do visit are rewarded with an untamed wilderness free from crowds and rich in wildlife. Many come back again and again. Ruaha combines well with Selous, a short flight away.
