Tanzania, the largest country in east Africa, is a tourist jewel that is too often overlooked by visitors to Africa. Home to the continent's highest peak (in the form of Mount Kilimanjaro), its lowest depression (the bed of Lake Tanganyika), its most famous national park (the Serengeti) and part of its largest lake (Lake Victoria), Tanzania's natural wonders are perfectly complemented by its excellent range of tourist sites and activities.

Even more popular are safari tours of Tanzania's world-famous game and wildlife parks. The largest and best-known of these, the Serengeti National Park, annually plays host to the largest mammal migration in the world - where millions of animals move northward in the search for greener pastures in an event that has been termed a 'natural travel wonder of the world'. Holidaymakers choose Tanzania for the express purpose of visiting Mount Kilimanjaro National Park, and climbing the mighty peak. An awesome sight, the snow-capped mountain rises unexpectedly from lush rainforest surroundings, and is the only mountain of its stature in the world that can be climbed my relatively inexperienced hikers.

Also tourists visit Zanzibar for an exotic beach vacation, a sun-soaked getaway spent lounging on the white sands of Zanzibar's northern coast and rambling around its historic Stone Town district (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
