Take an adventure holiday in TANZANIA with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies.
Tanzania is the largest country of East Africa, being almost 950,000 sq kms and made up mainly of a dry highland plateau, with a narrow strip of low-lying coast and the off-shore islands of Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia. The Rift Valley, containing some of the world's most magnificent and famous game reserves, sweeps down into Tanzania from Kenya and is covered by many inland lakes; Tanzania's highest mountains - Meru and Africa's highest, Mt Kilimanjaro - lie on or close to the Kenyan border in the north of the country. With a heritage of British and German colonialism - and the strong influence of the Portuguese and Arab traders felt along the coast - Tanganyika gained it's independence in 1961 and merged with the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba to become Tanzania.
World Expeditions operates an extensive range of adventures in Tanzania from technical climbs designed for the serious mountaineer through to easy walks that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Our Tanzania program includes:
Lake Manyara National Park, which is noted for it's elephant, giraffe, tree-climbing lions, baboons and warthogs populations.
The Ngorongoro Crater, which has been called the eighth wonder of the natural world, is designated a World Heritage Site and a Biosphere Reserve, and deserves every bit of its fame. All of the usual grassland-dwelling animals live in the crater – wildebeest, zebra, gazelles, eland, hartebeest, buffalo, warthogs – as well as their predators, including bat-eared foxes, jackals, hyenas, lions and the rarely-seen cheetahs.
Tarangire National Park known for its herds of elephants
Climb to the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro (either via the Shira or Rongai routes) or Mount Meru
