About Tanzania

Did you know ‘Tanganyika’, means sail in the wilderness? Being the largest country in East Africa, Tanzania is mountainous and heavily forested in the northeast. It is partly home to the three great lakes in Africa which are; Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa, which lies to the north and west; Lake Tanganyika, the world’s deepest lake, known for its unique species of fish and Lake Nyasa which lies to the southwest.

 

Tanzania is home to Kalambo Falls, the second-highest uninterrupted waterfall in Africa, bordering the southern shores of Lake Tanganyika on the border with Tanzania. It is also home to the Menai Bay Conservation Area, the largest marine protected area in Zanzibar. Other conservation areas include the Ngorongoro Crater (which has the largest unflooded and unbroken caldera in the world, measuring about 20kms across, 600 meters deep and 300 sq km in area), Amboni caves (believed to have been formed 150 million years ago) among others.

 

With 16 iconic national parks, plus a variety of game and forest reserves, safari enthusiasts will find themselves immersed in a world of wonder and amazement as they marvel at the various wildlife forms Tanzania has to offer.
