Luxury holidays in Tanzania

The largest country in East Africa, Tanzania is famous for its volcanic mountains, sweeping plateaus and deep crater lakes. The sheer space and size of the country makes it easy to get off the beaten track, making it a favourite among visitors looking to experience nature on a grand scale. On the vast plains of the Serengeti, zebra and wildebeest often graze in herds up to several thousand strong. In the Crater Highlands, safari lodges cling to the sides of Ngorongoro Crater, a deep, wildlife-filled hollow created when a volcano exploded some two to three million years ago. Some estimates put the since-vanished mountain’s height in the same ballpark as iconic Kilimanjaro, which looms over the border with neighbouring Kenya.

  • Famous for its sugar-white beaches, the island of Zanzibar is also steeped in heritage – the legacy of its historic trade links, pungent spice farms and melting pot of a capital.
