Reasons to Visit
It is extremely easy to add some beach relaxation in Zanzibar after a tiring safari on the mainland; the beaches are stunning and diving is excellent. You don't have to travel far either as the island is only a 30 minute flight from Dar Es Salaam. Tanzania is therefore the ideal location to combine a safari and beach break.
Tanzania has some of Africa's most famous and best national parks and reserves where you are guaranteed fantastic big cat sightings. The Serengeti, Selous and the Crater are just some of the best game viewing areas to visit.
Tanzania has more than 1,000 species of birds and some spectacular places to view them. Lake Natron is also the only known breeding ground for East Africa's millions of lesser flamingos which cover the lake between August and October.
The Mahale Mountains - towering almost 2km above the shore of Lake Tanganyika are home to some of the last remaining wild chimpanzees. There are currently around 900 which are habituated to humans, and tracking them is a magical experience.
One of the highlights of the Serengeti National park is the great annual migration which passes through this amazing wilderness. Up to 1.8 million wildebeest and zebra have been counted doing their annual trip in search of the sweet grasses and the rains.
Tanzania has an evocative mix of people and cultures with 120 ethnic groups making up the diverse population. The largest group are the Sukuma but perhaps the most memorable are the Maasai who you will often see in Northern Tanzania herding their cattle, goats and sheep.

The Nomad Serengeti Safari Camp is small and personal offering great service and an intimate atmosphere. Staying in a mobile camp is the best way to experience the wildness of the Serengeti.
Staying at the Nomad Serengeti Safari Camp has the huge advantage of being in the best possible location for game viewing all year round.
The camp moves around the Serengeti to be in the optimum position for the wildebeest migration according to the time of year. Set up in a private campsite in a remote area of the Serengeti, the camp caters for a maximum of 12 guests at a time, ensuring a personal atmosphere. The large walk-in tents are dotted around the bush whilst the main dining tent is delightful with a large dining table inside and walls that can be opened up to the surrounding bush.
There is also a lovely fire pit under a spreading acacia tree, the perfect place to enjoy a pre- or post-dinner drink whilst swapping tales of your day's game viewing. The tents are comfortably furnished and the en-suite bathrooms have chemical toilets, washbasins and bucket showers (plenty of hot water is provided).
Subject of countless documentaries, the Serengeti is perhaps most famous for the Great Migration, which each year sees up to two million wildebeest cross the plains in search of good grazing.
