Africa’s highest peak, the breathtaking Mount Kilimanjaro, rises above the grassy plains of northeast Tanzania. The snow-capped mountain is one of the tallest in the world, encircled by a rich mountain forest. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the sprawling volcano is recognized as an unparalleled natural wonder. Paired with a safari, scaling the so-called Roof of Africa can be a life-changing experience.To the west of Mount Kilimanjaro lies Tanzania’s most well-known safari destination, Serengeti National Park. Millions of hectares of grassland plains and savannah stretch to support vast herds of migrating wildebeests, gazelles and zebras, as well as the big cats and other predators that trail in their wakes. Host to the greatest wildlife spectacle on earth, Serengeti National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Serengeti’s southeast span ends at the volcanic highlands of the Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest unfilled caldera. The crater took its shape three million years ago, after an immense volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself. The crater and the surrounding Ngorongoro Conservation Area, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, serves as home for dense wildlife populations which include several globally threatened species.To the southeast of Ngorongoro, the tranquil shores of Lake Manyara sit against the rocky cliffs formed by the East African Rift. The alkaline lake plays host to flocks of flamingos, squadrons of pelicans and hundreds of other bird species. Surrounding the lake are rich forests, swamplands and sprawling bush plains teeming with wildlife – including the area’s remarkable tree-climbing lions.A short distance from Manyara, the verdant marshlands and sweeping grasslands of Tarangire National Park unfold. Enticed by the Tarangire River, herds numbering in the thousands of wildebeests, cape buffalo and zebras congregate in the area during the region’s dry months. The scenic park is home to one of the largest elephant populations in Africa and to a plethora of other species, including giraffes, lions, gazelles and leopards.
Pristine, white sand beaches hug the eastern coast of Tanzania, trailing off into crystal clear waters filled with dazzling marine life. In the warm water of the Indian Ocean, spot humpback whales or explore the spectacular coral reefs. Off the coast lies Zanzibar, home to yet another UNESCO World Heritage Site: the historic Stone Town. Once the capital of the island, the town served a pivotal role in the region’s flourishing spice trade in the 19th century. Its winding alleyways and intricate architecture maintain the town’s distinct charm.
