A land of vast plains, lakes and mountains, Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa. It combines ancient costal kingdoms, tribes, paradise beaches and offshore islands – not to mention dramatic mountains and the notorious Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. Further inland, Tanzania is a melting pot of cultures and home to over 100 tribes. It’s a land of welcomes, or “karibu” in Swahili and the people are open and friendly with an easily accessible culture. Most people are attracted to the stunning wildlife of Tanzania, home to more than four million wild animals and over 400 species, although many are now endangered like the leatherback turtles, black rhinos and colobus monkey.
