Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti, Zanzibar... a whole host of legendary names evoke the stunning and diverse sights of Tanzania. The country's main attraction is of course its superb natural scenery inhabited by wild animals. Tanzania guarantees visitors unforgettable safaris in national parks and nature reserves such as the Serengeti or the breathtaking Ngorongoro crater, both of which are home to lions, cheetahs and other exciting wildlife. Exploring these wild and unspoilt regions is a dream come true, as you watch elephants quenching their thirst in the river, gazelles bounding across a plain echoing with the cries of monkeys, or flocks of pink flamingos covering the surface of lakes for as far as the eye can see. Active travellers may wish to tackle the ascent of Kilimanjaro (5 895m), the slopes of which are popular with hikers and mountain climbers, while other visitors may be tempted by the offshore island of Zanzibar, the spice island, and its historic district of Stone Town, with its narrow streets and carved doorways.Finally, take time to enjoy the tranquil sandy beaches of Mafia island and explore its colourful underwater sea life. This delightful destination is still relatively unknown, so now's the time to visit!
