Tanzania is one of the jewels of Africa: with abundant wildlife and varied landscapes, from the towering peak of Mount Kilimanjaro to the crater of Ngorongoro and the beaches of Zanzibar, Tanzania truly has something for everyone. It could be claimed that the Serengeti is one of the best national parks in Africa, and on a safari where you might spy majestic lions sprawling under trees seeking shade from the sun, cheetah stalking their prey and beautiful leopards. The Serengeti National Park is also home to the annual migration of wildebeest, when up to two million wildebeest make their way across the terrain, accompanies by herds of zebras. The Ngorongoro conservation area also provides a magnificent opportunity to spot wildlife, where the steep sides of a volcano once collapsed, now acting as a barrier to encircle animals such as buffaloes, elephants and rhino. Mount Kilimanjaro, towering above the country at 5,895 metres above sea level, is Africa’s highest peak and the tallest free standing mountain in the world. The mountain is home to many flora and fauna.
