With such evocative place names as Zanzibar, the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro within its borders, here at Revere Travel we believe it is fair to say that Tanzania is blessed with more than its fair share of ‘must-see’ destinations.
The Serengeti is world-famous, characterised by the annual migration of animals in search of the best grazing, and nicknamed ‘The Greatest Show on Earth’. The migration is a complex, natural phenomenon defined by the rains. Some half a million zebra and up to two-million wildebeest move north through the Serengeti over the course of a year, attracting hordes of hungry predators in their wake. Some tented safari camps are nomadic, following the migration in order to guarantee the best possible game viewing. Despite this regular upping of sticks (which only takes place when guests are not resident), the camps offer a master-class in pared-down luxury, with gourmet cuisine, impressive comfort and first-class service, even in the remotest locations.
Breathtaking Ngorongoro Crater is a wildlife haven with its own rich eco-system of grasslands, swamps, lakes, rivers, woodlands and forest, all teeming with game. The beauty of the surroundings and the sheer abundance of wildlife draw visitors. Such density means that sightings of lions, elephants and zebras are virtually guaranteed.
Zanzibar and its surrounding islands off the east coast of Tanzania have stunning white sand beaches and excellent coral reefs. The warm Indian ocean makes Zanzibar a perfect relaxing getaway, and a stunning change of scenery from Tanzania's game reserves and national parks.
