How to choose your trip to Tanzania

One of Africa's top destinations, Tanzania offers a wealth of options for adventure travellers. The most popular safari tours focus on the famous attractions in the north of the country (including the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater) while southern Tanzania offers vast, unspoilt reserves far from the tourist crowds. The country's other main attraction lies in conquering Africa's highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, with various routes available below. Many trips to Tanzania will finish in the paradise island of Zanzibar. Tanzania is also one of the key stops on overland journeys through Africa - either combining the safaris of the east of the continent or along the epic Great African Journey.
