Overseeing all this is the snow-capped peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro, the world’s tallest free-standing mountain and a welcomed challenge for many intrepid visitors. Tanzania is also home to one of the most important paleoanthropological sites in the world where the remains of the first early human species were found. Today, over 120 different tribes provide Tanzania with its human story, each with their own distinct character, customs and language.

Choose from our selection of overland camping expeditions travelling by truck or opt for a more intimate experience on a small group lodge-accommodated safari or tailor-made vacation that takes in Tanzania's top spots.

This trip was a million times more incredible than I ever imagined. We traveled with and the crew on our trip were just amazing and thanks to our wonderful chef. They put together a seamless, stress-free journey with great food and many laughs. The truck was incredibly well equipped, the tents were lovely and spacious, and the bed rolls were surprisingly comfortable. We didn't feel the need to upgrade our accommodation at any of the campsites.

This trip covered all the highlights with multiple game drives and plenty of opportunity to view the African wildlife. Camping in the National Parks was an absolute highlight. We also had opportunities to visit local villages in Tanzania and Malawi. Zanzibar was just wonderful and felt like a holiday inside a holiday. What a stunning destination with white sand beaches, warm Indian ocean and a tonne of history. There are some long driving days, but that was absolutely required to cover the distance that we did. They provided a welcome opportunity to rest and admire the stunning landscapes. My only complaint is that I couldn't have stayed on this trip for longer!”

Literally the most amazing experience of my life, joined 2 tours across the the experience and both were unreal. The crew on the trucks are absolutely fantastic, really knowledgeable guide, wonderful cook and a safe and accurate driver. More importantly they encouraged the group to create such a family unit that my friend and I both cried all the way to the airport because we had to leave them. The experience itself was an amazing mix of beaches, wildlife and falls and the itinerary provided was absolutely correct. Would recommend this trip to anyone and I certainly will be using on the go in the future”

Our guide was superb, he was honest, considerate and full of excellent advice on travelling through the areas we were going. In the same way our cook, Peter was fantastic - every meal was exceptionally good and the team was completed by a fantastic driver Peterson, who made sure that we were always comfortable on the bus, despite the pot holes. We visited some fantastic places and the included game drives and activities were excellent - the local guides used were always top quality.

The long days driving through Tanzania were challenging, although we were expecting this but leaving one place in the dark and arriving in the dark at the next, travelling all day on two consecutive days was tedious. ”

Safari and Beach
The dream holiday combination

From the vast plains of the Serengeti and incredible natural amphitheatre of the Ngorongoro Crater where the Big Five (and more) roam, Tanzania is one of Africa's top safari destinations. The tropical paradise of the Zanzibar archipelago off the coast provides another superb option for a wildlife and beach holiday combination for sun, sea and safari.
