Tanzania is a land of indescribable beauty due to its untouched nature, wildlife in complete freedom, the majestic Kilimanjaro overlooking the savannah, and the archipelago of Zanzibar in the crystalline waters of the Indian Ocean.
The main parks
The Parks of Tanzania are among the best known in the world for the variety of fauna and the beauty of the landscapes. In many of these parks, it is relatively easy to spot the famous “Big Five” (the lion, the African elephant, the leopard, the buffalo, and the rhinoceros), the most feared and sought-after species in the era of great big game hunts, and those that still thrill safari enthusiasts.
The Ngorongoro Crater
In the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, 180 km from Arusha, the Ngorongoro crater is inhabited by an extraordinary quantity and diversity of animal species (over 25,000 mammals). Around the pools of water, you can spot from the Big Five to giraffes, zebras, hippopotamuses, passing through a huge variety of birds, including one of the most important African colonies of flamingos.
The Serengeti National Park
On the border between Tanzania and Kenya, the Serengeti Park (endless plain, in the Masai language) extends over 14,000 square kilometers of Savannah and is part of the World Heritage of Humanity. An infinite space with unique fauna and flora in the world.
The Tarangire National Park
This park is among the most beautiful and evocative of luxury destinations in Tanzania and takes its name from the river that crosses it. Famous for its herds of elephants and the majestic baobabs, you can explore it by taking part in photo-safari, balloon rides, and night game drives or on foot accompanied by expert Masai guides.
The Great Migrations (in winter and summer)
The show of the great seasonal migrations in the Serengeti and Ngorongoro parks is impressive. Herds of herbivores, wildebeests, and zebras, followed by predators, move in search of a more favorable climate in a long and dangerous journey. The period between December and April is that of the winter migration that will lead the animals to the south, in the Ndutu area. Summer migration takes place between July and October when the animals travel north to cross the Mara River on the border with Kenya.
The Zanzibar Archipelago
Zanzibar is the blue pearl of Tanzania. Among the seventy islands that count the archipelago, the main ones are Unguja, Mafia, Pemba and Fanjove, authentic paradises of unspoiled nature, protected wildlife, white beaches, and relaxation. Here are the most beautiful snorkeling and diving spots in the world, exceptional marine reserves, lush forests, and preserved mangroves.
The Kilimanjaro with its 5895 meters of height is the highest mountain in Africa and stands majestically and solitary on the savannah.
The ascent of Kilimanjaro is challenging but within reach of all trekking lovers in good physical condition. There are no technically tricky passages, but it is essential to get used to the climatic changes and high altitude with caution.
The city of Arusha
The starting point for safaris in the parks of the North, Arusha is a city of over four hundred thousand inhabitants and one of the most dynamic centers in luxury destinations in Tanzania. In a very fertile agricultural region that produces cereals, coffee, fruit, vegetables and flowers, the city has a large number of shops and markets such as the colorful Masai market, where local wood crafts, masks, but also livestock are sold. Food and remedies of traditional medicine.
