Tanzania

A land of snow-capped mountains, shimmering lakes, sensational beaches and of course – the phenomenal national parks and wildlife.

A country of astounding contrasts and the birthplace of the safari, Tanzania offers exceptional, unforgettable experiences around every sun-drenched corner.

Expect a breathtaking, thrilling and unexpected journey — from the endless plains of the Serengeti and rich forests of the Mahale Mountains to the vast Ngorongoro Crater and the exotic island of Zanzibar.

Embark on an authentic, luxurious safari into the heart of Tanzania’s most abundant wildlife areas when you join us on one of Abercrombie & Kent’s award-winning Tanzania holidays.

Serengeti to Mount Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar and beyond

Go beyond the extraordinary as you join us on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure across the magnificent country of Tanzania.

Adventurers and wildlife enthusiasts will be overawed as we explore the vast landscape and prolific amounts of game of the Serengeti. Famed for the annual migration, the enchanting Serengeti is a must for any first time visitor to Tanzania.

The Ngorongoro Crater meanwhile is a true Garden of Eden, with highland forest covering the sheer sides of the caldera, which forms a natural enclosure for an abundance of spectacular wildlife that roams the flat crater floor, making it ideal viewing ground for a superb Tanzanian safari.
