Tanzania is an unforgettable country with diverse landscapes, majestic summits, clear lakes and mighty streams, lush rainforest, and open savannahs. These often unspoiled areas form unique habitats for a large variety of animals as well as over 1000 bird species. Mt Kilimanjaro (5895 m) is the highest mountain in Africa and Mt Meru the ninth highest. The Serengeti National Park with its endless savannah and Ngorongoro Crater (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) both offer unbelievable game viewing. Tanzania can truly claim to be the home of the safari. In the native language of Swahili, safari means journey. On your journeys here, you will meet some of Africa's friendliest and most welcoming people. Tanzania is a journey of a lifetime.
