Most probably the most well known of Africa's National Parks, the Serengeti plays host to the unsurpassable annual migration of 1.8 million animals. The safari experience is supplemented by the awesome Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara National Park, home to the tree climbing lions, Tarangire National Park, the Ruaha, a rare experience of game viewing spiced up by the fascinating landscape, Katavi National Park, untrammelled and seldom visited and Africa's largest game reserve, the Selous. These are but a few of the many wildlife reserves on offer in this vast country.
Not only are the safaris spectacular, combined with Lake Tanganyika, Zanzibar and its surrounding islands, Mount Kilimanjaro, highest free-standing mountain in the world, Lake Victoria, Africa's largest lake, they make for a holiday no one should miss.
Lake Tanganyika is the longest freshwater lake in the world.
There are more than 120 different tribes in Tanzania.
Kilimanjaro's last eruption was over two hundred years ago.
