WHY AFRICA VACATION
Key considerations for making Tanzania your next safari destination

Visitors flock here every year to witness the famous Great Migration to pass through the legendary Serengeti, a natural spectacle with herds of wildebeest so large they can be seen from space.
- The most amazing wildlife drive spot is within the unbroken caldera walls of the neighboring Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The national parks of Ruaha and Nyerere (previously Selous), which are located further south, provide beautiful scenery for seeing untamed, off-the-beaten-path animals. The unique island of Zanzibar with its palm-lined beaches, Kilimanjaro, Africa’s tallest mountain, and the Lake Victoria shoreline round out one of Africa’s most stunning, vibrant, and diversified countries.
