Imagine the world when vast herds of animals grazed freely in wild savanna beneath the slopes of snow-topped ancient volcanoes: this is still true in Tanzania, humanity’s first home where our earliest ancestors took to their feet, abandoning tree climbing for mountain climbing. Follow those bare footsteps as you ascend Kilimanjaro through equatorial rainforests to alpine glaciers where you will gaze down across an endless Garden of Eden.
Climb Africa’s highest peak and the ‘Roof of Africa,’ soak in the splendor of the Serengeti and witness nature’s most impressive animal movement and one of the 10 natural travel wonders of the world – the Great Migration. Marvel at a mountain moonrise as you fade off to the gentle roar of lions and the groans of emerging hippos, only to wake up to a clean, bright savannah sunrise.
Tanzania has many wild hidden treasures. Head to the Mahale mountains to track the last of the wild chimpanzees, game drive in the Ngorongoro Crater – an impressive caldera where Maasai graze their cattle amongst the ‘Big Five’ animals, fly to the more wild Selous Game Reserve for a boat ride in Africa’s biggest game reserve, or sail on a dhow to the exotic spice island of Zanzibar. Find your roots and lose your heart to the magic of East Africa.
