Tanzania is one of Safari for Real’s favourite destinations, mainly due to it’s incredible diversity and truly remarkable wildernesses. The east African country is part of Africa’s Great Lakes region, sharing a portion of Lake Tanganyika in the west and Lake Victoria in the north, with Lake Rukwa situated in the south-west.
The Serengeti is undoubtedly the country’s most iconic attraction, drawing hundreds of thousands of tourists each year for the migration of millions of wildebeest and zebra across the plains – one of the world’s most stunning natural spectacles. The snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain at 5895 metres, is a constant presence standing guard over this wilderness.
But it would be a travesty to overlook Tanzania’s other attractions. On the powdery white shores of Lake Tanganyika, the Mahale Mountains National Park is a spectacular, remote reserve with forests boasting the best wild chimpanzee viewing in the world. For classic safari experiences, the Selous, Ruaha and Katavi National Parks are all superb, treating visitors to fantastic encounters with Africa’s wildlife.
