INTRODUCTION TO Tanzania
WHAT WE LOVE: In the past we never really took much notice of Tanzania, but with the amazing development of new lodges and camps it now offers some of Africa’s leading sustainable eco-tourism projects. Classics now proudly represent the very best destinations on the Northern circuit. This low-key, unassuming country is also home to some of Africa’s most famed tourist destinations: Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire, Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar. While most visitors will congregate at these undeniably exotic spots, Tanzania has many other hidden natural, historical and cultural gems, including 19th-century caravan routes, once-famed ports of call for Oriental merchant ships, ancient rock paintings, Africa’s largest protected natural area (Selous), as well as prime destinations for seeing chimpanzees in the wild. All this is held together by the beauty and dignity of over 100 ethnic groups that live amicably in Tanzania.
