Visit Serengeti National Park and Gombe National Park
After gaining independence from the British in the early 1960s, Tanganyika and Zanzibar united to form the country of Tanzania. Tanzania lies on the Indian Ocean in central eastern Africa, and includes the island of Zanzibar, just off the coast. Tanzania is home to more than 120 ethnic groups (though the majority has Bantu origins). Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest peak and best-known landmark, lies in northern Tanzania. The country also boasts Africa’s largest lake (Lake Victoria) and its deepest lake (Lake Tanganyika). Many well-known wildlife parks are also located in Tanzania, including Serengeti National Park and Gombe National Park (where Jane Goodall studied chimpanzees). Tanzania is also home to the largest breeding site of the threatened Lesser Flamingo, located at Lake Natron near the Ngorongoro Crater in northern Tanzania.
What Our Clients Are Saying
"Stone Town was great fun! The hotel was great as was the guide. No gliches with the airlines or the return flight. "
"The trip you set up for me was flawless. The guide met all my expectations. He was helpful and protective. I did learn that in Africa, time is a relative thing. I soon learned that when James told me we were one half hour from anywhere, I could count on an hour. I saw every major animal, but one, including the Black Rino, one of the most endangers specie in the Crater. I took 900 pictures. I can tell you without a doubt, that your people can take care of a person my age and should promote that fact. I loved Nxabega. However, I was prevented from going to my tent for a rest when a family of Elephants started eating the trees between the lunch area and my tent. They were all first rate camps, but Sopa was exceptional. If you wish me to fill out anything, let me know. One funny story. I needed to go to the bathroom. James asked me to wait while he drove about a half a mile to high ground, so he could watch out for animals while I attended to the problem behind his 4x4. As we get to about fifty yards from the place we planned to stop; three lions walked over the hill and past our vehicle. You would be surprised how fast the urge to go disappears under these circumstances."
