Travel to Tanzania

 

Tanzania is an East African country renowned for its vast wilderness areas. In particular the plains of the Serengeti National Park, inhabited by the “Big Five” (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhinoceros) and the Kilimanjaro National Park, whose heart is the highest mountain in Africa: 5,892 Mr. The country is crossed by the Great Rift Valley which runs through the western part of the country from north to south and in which some of the great African lakes are located.

Offshore are the tropical islands of Zanzibar, with Arab influences, and Mafia, with a marine park hosting whale sharks and coral reefs.

It is this richness of diversity that gives Tanzania a mystical allure of “country of origins”.

Tanzania is regarded as a superb safari destination with many world-class opportunities for game spotting. The country has many of the best and biggest parks in Africa with ideal conditions for African game. It also has some of the most varied and unique landscapes that you’ll ever see. From grasslands to woodlands, rock formations and mountain peaks, there’s no question that Tanzania features some amazing opportunities for sightseeing and photo-safaris.

FLORA AND FAUNA

Tanzania is noted for its great variety of wildlife throughout the country. It is estimated that there are more than four million wild animals in Tanzania representing 430 different species and subspecies. The country houses about 20% of Africa’s large mammal population. Zebras, giraffes, elephants, wildebeest, buffaloes, hippos, antelopes and gazelles are found everywhere as well as larger predatory animals like lions, cheetahs and leopards.

In Tanzania, you also find approximately 60,000 insect species, 25 types of reptiles and amphibians, around 100 species of snakes and many fish species. Also birds are widely represented in Tanzania with around one thousand species, including kingfishers, hornbills and flamingos.

Small patches of tropical rainforest in Tanzania’s Eastern Arc range provide an ecosystem for a vast variety of plants, many of which are unique in the world. They include the popular Usambara or African violet (Saintpaulia) and Impatiens, which are sold as house plants in grocery stores in western countries. Similar forest patches – remnants of the much larger tropical forest that once extended across the continent – are also found in the Udzungwas, Ulugurus and several other areas. South and west of the Eastern Arc range are stands of baobab, with some particularly striking baobab-studded landscapes in the Tarangire National Park.
