Discover Africa


From Mount Kilimanjaro’s iconic snow-capped peak, to the endless plains of the Serengeti and the Great Migration, Tanzania is spellbinding.

A wonderland of wildlife

Discover an East African safari spectacle

Beyond the exotic spice island of Zanzibar and the dramatic snow-capped peaks of Mount Kilimanjaro, the famed plains of the Serengeti in Tanzania offer some of the best game-viewing on Earth. Tanzania is home to some of the most iconic African national parks, private game reserves and conservation areas, including the Ngorongoro Crater and renowned Serengeti National Park, where over a million wildebeest and zebras cross the plains in the Great Migration.

Watch hundreds of thousands of wildebeest, zebra and other plains game travel an endless journey, covering the entire Serengeti; crossing its rivers, braving its predators. Grazing, drinking, breeding, moving as one.
