Welcome to Tanzania!
It is not hard to see why Tanzania ranks high on places to visit in your lifetime - with the vast Serengeti and its abundant wildlife, the idyllic island of Zanzibar, the lofty reaches of the Kilimanjaro, and the intriguing Ngorongoro Crater, Tanzania has a lot to offer and many great Tanzania hotels. With some of the world's best safari destinations, over 33,000 sq km of national parks and wildlife reserves, there is more land dedicated to wildlife here than anywhere else in the world.
From highlands, craters, national parks, to reserves and even the reefs, everything is well protected by law, ensuring that these pristine locales retain their vitality down the years.
The erstwhile capital and a key port for Tanzania, Dar es Salaam is where most journeys into the great unknown of this country begin, and where you can organise a tour of Tanzania. Conveniently located, and with some great Tanzania hotels, the city forms a good base to explore Zanzibar and the new capital Dodoma. Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,341 ft), the most prized mountain of Africa and a tourist magnet, is a short trip away. Beach holidays are also easy if you make Dar es Salaam your base, allowing you to spend time at Mjimwena, Mbwa Maji and Kunduchi.
Unlike the big game country on the mainland, Zanzibar - a peaceful paradise on the Indian Ocean - is an idyllic island destination which has a remarkable history that blends stories of the spice trade and slavery.
Wherever a visitor chooses to go in Tanzania, there is a secret waiting to be discovered, a treasure waiting to be found and an adventure waiting to happen. You can use our Tanzania map to choose the best location for your hotel in Tanzania and ensure your perfect holiday. And whilst in Tanzania you should use your holiday to explore other great African destinations like Mauritius, Kenya, Madagascar, and South Africa.
