Start by choosing from any of the following popular attractions, or view a sample itinerary:
This pristine sanctuary will give you a glimpse into “the world as it was in the beginning,” with some of the best game-viewing all of Africa has to offer. Each year, more than four million wildebeest, zebra and Thomson's gazelle undertake the largest land migration on the planet. Tanzania's first and most famous park, the Serengeti is also renowned for its leopard, lion, cheetah and black rhino.
Only second to Serengeti, Tarangire National Park has the greatest concentration of wildlife in Tanzania. In the dry season, large herds of elephants and migratory wildebeest, zebra, buffalo, impala, gazelle, hartebeest and eland gather at the Tarangire River. The park is known for its spectacular baobab trees, breathtaking views of the Maasai Steppe, and the mountains to the south.
Enjoy wildlife game viewing at the Ngorongoro Crater, a World Heritage Site and geological marvel. The world's largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera consists of several vegetation zones and is home to about 30,000 animals, despite its tiny size. It is also home to Olduvai Gorge, where paleoanthropologists Louis and Mary Leakey discovered the remains of homo habilis, the first known ancestors of modern humankind.

At the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, the scenery inside Lake Manyara National Park is as stunning as the exotic wildlife. Known for its flamingos and tree-climbing lions, plentiful herds of elephants, water buffalo, giraffe, and zebra, it is also home to the mysterious leopard.

Standing at 19,341 feet, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak on the continent. Mount Kilimanjaro is composed of three volcanic cones, two of which are extinct. Trek through diverse vegetation zones on this official route to the snow-capped summit, and enjoy the view of the plains along your multi-day trip. At the summit, take in the feeling of accomplishment—and the breathtaking view from the roof of Africa.
Enjoy an authentic East African experience in Mungere Village, a tribal community centrally located amid the northern safari circuit. Guests can interact with students, staff and community members at the Mungere School, while witnessing a successful, locally-driven development education project in action. With an array of activities and eye-opening experiences available, visitors can participate in service projects with local volunteer staff and students and join football (soccer), volleyball or basketball games. Hike to nearby waterfalls on the Great Rift Valley escarpment, and visit the school's friendly neighbors by taking a village home tour lead by Mungere's tri-lingual students. Be sure to take time to enjoy the local life around you, taking in the unique sights, smells and sounds of village life.
An archipelago rich in history and tropical beauty, Tanzania's off-shore islands are still a secret destination to many. The largest at 51 miles long, Zanzibar's white sandy beaches stretch her entire length. Majestic turquoise waters are perfect for swimming, sailing, water sports, or snorkeling and scuba diving in coral reefs. From spice tours in the busy city of Stone Town to the port's fish market, with great seafood and an active nightlife, the islands are a great place to begin or complete any African adventure.View more details
