Tanzania is East Africa's largest country that lies just south of the equator, and is an immensely rewarding place to visit. 7 Days Best of Tanzania Safari takes you to Tanzania has the world-famous attractions; 6 Days Lake Manyara The Serengeti Ngorongoro Crater Arusha /Nairobi takes the traveller on a nature expedition to the plains of the Serengeti National Park that boarders the Masai Mara National Park Ngorongoro Crater, snowcapped Mount Kilimanjaro (Africa's highest mountain) and Zanzibar, with its idyllic palm-fringed beaches and historic Stone Town. Yet there's a whole lot more to Tanzania than these obvious highlights.
The land abounds with interesting wildlife and inspiring landscapes (over forty percent of the country fall under protected areas) ranging from forest-covered volcanic peaks to dusty savanna populated by elephants, antelopes, lions, leopards and cheetahs. Tanzania is one of the most naturally diverse nations on earth: it contains Africa's second-largest number of bird species (around 1500), the continent's biggest mammal population and three-quarters of East Africa's plant species (over ten thousand). The country rich ethnic diversity, some superb hiking and other activities like snorkeling and diving, and you have the makings of a holiday of a lifetime.
The best known tribe air the Maasai, a pastoralist cattle heading, people who inhabit the region around the safari parks in the north, yet there are at least 127 other tribes in Tanzania, perhaps not as visually colourful as the red-robed, spear-carrying Maasai war¬riors, but with equally rich traditions, histories, customs, beliefs and music, much of which survive despite the ravages of colonialism, modernity arid Christianity.
