Tanzania - Diverse Wildlife & Cultures

< >
From majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro to the Rift Valley lakes and the exotic islands of Zanzibar, Tanzania is many worlds wrapped in one. With year-round concentrations of wildlife and waving, golden grasslands as far as the eye can see, the Serengeti is Tanzania’s crown jewel. Lions lurk in wait for prey among the park’s iconic kopjes (great piles of weathered granite), and wildebeest in the hundreds of thousands begin their epic annual Great Migration here. To the north, shimmering clouds of pink flamingoes cover Lake Manyara, a bird-watcher’s dream. 

Nearby Lake Eyasi is home to the Hadzabe, Africa’s last remaining hunter-gatherers and speakers of a fascinating “click” language. For a complete change of pace, visit Zanzibar, off Tanzania’s Swahili Coast. The island’s rich Arab- and Indian-influenced trading history is palpable in the narrow alleys of Stone Town, fragrant with cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, cloves, and nutmeg grown in the adjacent hills. Pristine Indian Ocean beaches enhance Zanzibar’s charm, with white sands, turquoise waters, and fishermen setting sail in traditional dhows.
