One of Africa’s most captivating countries, holidays to Tanzania are exotic and rugged, with amazing weather, shimmering beaches and a host of geographical extremes to top it all off. The landmarks don’t fall short either, with Mt Kilimanjaro, Lake Victoria, the Serengeti and numerous national parks to be found here. This is a truly beautiful destination, with a wealth of opportunities to explore, whether it’s sightseeing you’re after or the cultural side to Africa.

Home to some of Africa’s most favourite names, such as Kilimanjaro, the Ngorongoro Crater and Serengeti, you’d be forgiven in thinking that you knew all that Tanzania had to offer. While the above list is accurate, it’s by no means exhaustive – there’s plenty more to be found here. Idyllic and authentic, as with much of Africa, there are pockets of truly spectacular sights to be found, and you don’t need to look far to find them.
Begin just off the coast, with the glorious archipelago of Zanzibar. This shining example of Africa’s ability to do beach destinations perfectly plays host to coral reefs, unspoiled beaches and a laid-back atmosphere.
