Tanzania is East Africa’s largest country and also one of its most diverse, consisting of famous landmarks, mountains and tropical stretches of coastline as well as countless native cultures, languages and customs. The country has some of the best game viewing on the continent and is home to some of the most famous areas for viewing Africa’s wildlife, including the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.
There is also no shortage of cultural heritage, particularly on the island of Zanzibar, which was once a slave trading port. Historic and cultural tours are conducted on the island and snorkelling and diving is extremely popular amongst visitors. Striking a balance between culture and wildlife is Tanzania’s specialty, and visitors can get a healthy combination of the two by taking in the diversity of the country.
