Introduction to Tanzania
Located in East Africa, Tanzania showcases the circle of life like nowhere else in the world. Millions of wildebeest and zebras roam the expansive plains during the Great Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti National Park. Gazelles, impalas, tope antelope, leopards, cheetah, warthogs, elephants, giraffes, crocodiles, hippos, monkeys, hyenas and lions—they’re all here, along with countless species of birds including the ever-watchful vultures. Opportunities for wildlife spotting are abundant. Some things are not to be missed like the three-million-year-old Ngorongoro Crater, sunsets on the Serengeti, interaction with the local tribal cultures and, of course, the Great Wildebeest Migration.
