Tanzania Safari Holidays

What first strikes the visitor to Tanzania is its sheer physical size and infinite variety. The country embraces the green islands of Pemba, Zanzibar and Mafia.  It is a country of wild open spaces and magnificent wildlife, of palm-fringed islands set in turquoise seas, and of warm and hospitable people.  Physically, the country is made up of a vast central plateau, which slopes down towards the Indian Ocean, the three great lakes – Victoria to the north, Tanganyika to the west and Nyasa to the south -, the Great Rift Valley with its large volcanoes in the north, and a series of coral islands in the Indian Ocean.
