Tanzania & Zanzibar

A photographer's paradise, a Tanzania safari promises diverse topography and a dense animal population with some of the most stunning scenery to be found anywhere in Africa. The vastness of the country takes you on a journey from the plains beneath Kilimanjaro, across to Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti  - home to one of the single most impressive events on earth, the great migration.   Further south, discover the remote wilderness of the Selous and Ruaha, less well known but equally rewarding.

The islands of Zanzibar off the east coast, meanwhile, provide the perfect antidote to busy, adventurous days, with miles of beautiful beach and piercing turquoise sea offering time for rest and recuperation as well as fantastic diving.
