Experience wild animals roaming the rolling plains of Tanzania’s Serengeti.
Experience elephants, lions,
giraffes, antelopes and zebras roaming the rolling plains of
Tanzania's Serengeti on the safari trip of a lifetime. The
spectacular national parks of the Arusha and Kilimanjaro areas
enable you to get up close and personal with wildlife in their
natural territories. But think again if you thought this was all
Tanzania had to offer - its beaches in exotic Zanzibar are out of
this world. Home to the mighty Mount Kilimanjaro, this vast,
beautiful country on the east coast of Africa exceeds expectations
on every level.
