Millions of wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebra; all in the pursuit of rains & green grazing between in the Serengeti Mara ecosystem. Vast endless plains at the foot of snow-capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, picturesque white sandy beaches and mystical Stone Town of Zanzibar – these are just a slither of the iconic landscapes that Tanzania has to offer the traveller.

The first hominid discovery was made by Leaky in the first half of the 20th Century, in Tanzania’s Olduvai (Oldupai) Gorge, making Tanzania arguably, the cradle of mankind.
Tanzania is the biggest country of Eastern Africa. Tanzania was ‘born’ in 1964 with the merger of mainland Tanganyika and the island of Zanzibar.
