Tanzania has some of Africa’s best game viewing in largely uncrowded national parks and game reserves. The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the world’s most remarkable sights, while Selous, in the far south east, is Africa’s largest protected area at some 50,000 square kilometres. The rolling plains of the Serengeti are another big draw, where snow-capped Kilimanjaro is ever-present on the horizon. It’s one of the best places to witness the great migration, where millions of wildebeest search out new grazing grounds each year, followed by big predators. Adventurous travellers can also head out to the wild west of Tanzania to stay by the shores of Lake Tanganyika and venture into the Mahale Mountains to find the wild chimpanzees that live there. For a break from the wilderness, you can head for Zanzibar, the legendary Spice Island, where African and Arabic culture mix and you can find superb beaches and total relaxation.
