Tanzania  is a land of mysticism and beauty with a diverse landscape ranging from the snow capped peaks of  Kilimanjaro to the vast wilderness of the Serengeti plains.  Situated between the crystalline Indian Ocean and the Great Rift Valley, her bounty is endless, offering an unparalleled insight into the rich natural  heritage that is Africa.

With a climate as varied as the landscape, visitors to Tanzania can enjoy a balmy tropical holiday at the coast or, hike through rain forests and glaciers. This multi- faceted country has a universal appeal  that never fails to work its magic. 

The local people and culture are a cosmopolitan blend owing to her colorful history as a major trading station. Out of the 120 tribes that populate Tanzania the most famous are the Maasai who still live traditional tribal lives. These herdsmen are deeply connected to nature and their dignified figures can often be seen striding across the plains tending their herds. Unaffected by western norms they have retained the culture of the Warrior and still practice initiation rituals,  contributing to the feeling that Tanzania is, indeed, a land that time forgot. 

With a  history dating back to the dawn of time, it was here, in Olduvai Gorge, that the anthropologists Drs. Lois and Mary Leakey discovered the skulls of 'Nutcracker' Man and 'Handy' Man  both very significant links in the chain of human evolution.   Later on, Tanzania and more specifically Zanzibar, became a hub for the spice and slave trades, and many famous explorers such as Livingston and Stanley used her as the gate way for their expeditions into darkest Africa.  

The natural heritage is fiercely protected as Tanzania boasts a number of national parks which cover an incredible 25% of her land area.  These parks are world famous for their beauty and profusion of wild life as they are home to 20% of Africa's' large mammal population, serving as safe- havens for rare and threatened species like the Black Rhino and the Black maned lion.   Visitors can rest assured that they will see the Big Five,  colorful birds and trees, many of which are endemic.
