It was in Tanzania that Stanley uttered those famous words – “Dr Livingstone I presume” – when he tracked down the Scottish missionary
and explorer after a long trek into the interior. Indeed Tanzania was a magnet for several Victorian explorers who made epic journeys of discovery in search of the source of the Nile. Today’s visitors are able to explore the country, and see Tanzania’s remarkable seven UNESCO World Heritage sites with none of the hardship but all of the adventure of
those early, intrepid pioneers:
• Kilimanjaro National Park
• Kilwa Kisiwani Ruins
• Kondoa Rock-Art Sites
• Ngorongoro Conservation Area
• Selous Game Reserve
• Serengeti National Park
• Stone Town, Zanzibar

Tanzania’s Swahili Coast, Mafia and, of course, Zanzibar and Pemba share beautiful beaches, hundreds of miles of palm-fringed sands overlooking the Indian Ocean. Its huge lakes – Victoria, Tanganyika and Nyasa – are bountiful with fish. Its mountains are massive and mysterious. Its cities relaxed and friendly. And travel is easy, with many flights to and from neighbouring countries and around Tanzania.

Tanzania has also been named as one of the world’s top five ‘most stunningly beautiful countries’ by Fox TV News. The country’s 16 national
parks, which protect more than 25% of its land, are home to 20% of the
African continent’s larger mammals so it is little wonder game viewing
experiences are the best in Africa. It is the place to see seemingly
endless herds of wildebeest and zebra trekking across the plains on their
annual migration – followed by lion, leopard, cheetah and hyena. It is
elephant country, boasting some of the largest populations in the world. While Gombe and Mahale National Parks are home to groups of chimpanzees rarely seen in the wild.
