Tanzania was the first country we specialised in, and it's still our absolute favourite destination for a luxury safari holiday! Tanzania's jaw-dropping showpieces include Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro; the world's largest intact volcanic caldera, the Ngorongoro Crater; the annual Great Migration of millions of wildebeest and zebras across the magnificent Serengeti Plains; the highest concentrations of cats and other predators in Africa; beautiful Indian Ocean beaches on the historic Spice Island of Zanzibar - and so much else besides... Let a Tanzania Holiday be your next adventure ...

Our top 5 reasons to take a Tanzania Holiday
1. The game viewing here is some of the best in the world, and Tanzania’s coastline and islands have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world too. Here you can seamlessly combine an authentic, wild safari adventure with a deserted Indian Ocean beach holiday, a match made in heaven...
2. The Great Migration, when 1.5m wildebeest move en masse following the rains, in search of green pastures.
3. Value for money: Tanzania has some seriously good accommodation options at great prices (and there are also some astronomically expensive lodges in Tanzania, for those who are want to splash out for the last word in luxury!)
4. Tanzania is well-developed in terms of activities and experiences: why not add in a hot air balloon trip, a night fly camping in the bush, a spot of pristine reef diving or an alfresco dinner in the middle of the Serengeti?
5. The largest intact volcanic caldera in the world, Ngorongoro Crater. This is where you will find the densest concentration of animals in Africa: over 30,000 mammals, including large game and associated predators.
Tanzania: some background
Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged in 1964 to form the United Republic of Tanzania (TANganyika / ZANzibar). The new republic brought together over 120 different ethnic groups, and introduced Swahili, the language of the monsoon coastal traders, as the national language. In stark contrast with many of its African neighbours which have been plagued with racial conflict and violent civil war, Tanzania has remained largely politically stable and peaceful since independence.
