Tanzania is a country of legends, of Great White Hunters and the intrepid explorers of the past. Tanzania, the largest country in East Africa, offers possibly the ultimate exotic adventure, in a spectacular world. It is a land of many wonders hosting an un-paralleled diversity of fauna and flora.
There is the snow-capped summit of Mount Kilimanjaro – the highest permanently snow-capped free standing mountain in Africa, and the sun-kissed Islands beaches of Zanzibar, the finest vast herds of game grazing on the Serengeti plains and the slow volcanic eruption of Ol Donyo Lengai, Tarangire, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater, Ruaha, Selous and the Marine Park of Mafia Island are only but a few of the living examples.
The scenery, topography and very friendly people harbour the growth of excellent cultural tourism, beach holidays, game hunting, historical and archaeological ventures and certainly the best wildlife photographic safaris on the continent. With so much natural wealth, it’s no wonder that Tanzania has something for everyone…
Step out into the vast open plains of Tanzania and you suddenly feel very, very small – You’ll have just joined one of the largest, wildest animal populations in the world – Wildebeest, Monkey, Antelope, Lion, Cheetah, Crocodile, Gazelle, Flamingo and hosts more beyond your wildest imagination. Also, the options for activities are endless: mountain climbing, safari adventures, beach lounging, scuba diving, fishing, walking, and exploring are just some of the activities on offer…
With such a perfect Location, perched on the edge of the African continent, and facing the Indian Ocean, Tanzania’s weather and climate leaves nothing to be desired. Warm and sunny days are followed by cool and balmy nights, and whether you’re on Safari on the Serengeti plains or enjoying the tropical beaches of Zanzibar, the temperatures are always welcoming and gentle. Also, be sure to experience the traditional food at the coast and Zanzibar. This is quite good and is based on seafood and rice dishes.
But sun-filled and beautiful days are not all that Tanzania has to offer. On the contrary, the country’s borders hold a vast number of people and tribes whose varied cultures and traditions make up the rich tapestry that is Tanzanian culture, with the highlights being the Masai culture and the customs of the Swahili Coast. Although Tanzania is a country rich in culture and traditions, its history is also one of the treasured heritage and pride.
From the early days of mankind’s history to the arrival of merchants and traders on the Swahili Coast, to the peaceful political climate that exists today, man has called the land of Tanzania home – its verdant mountains, its scrubland plains.
Arab and Persian influence is strong in Zanzibar. The interaction of Arabs and Bantu Africans resulted in the Swahili language now widely spoken in Eastern and Central Africa. Those in the know say that the purest Swahili dialect is spoken in Zanzibar. Swahili is now the Lingua Franca of Tanzania although English is widely understood in urban centers.
