why travel solo to tanzania?
If you’ve ever wanted to witness the drama of the African plains, to travel to a place where nature reigns, to watch in humble awe as life unfolds around you - choose Tanzania.
The imperceptible flick of a tail in the long grass, a grey smudge hidden amongst trees on the horizon, a streak of yellow moving across the plains, almost too fast to see. These things you’ll become accustomed to looking out for when searching for the Big 5 – and more often than not, your efforts will be rewarded, so rich and giving is the Serengeti.
Beyond the wildlife – Tanzania and Zanzibar have so much more to offer. From the clearest, star-strewn night skies above the untouched wilderness of the Ngorongoro Crater to beaches so perfect, they’re continuously rated as some of the best in the world – travel to Tanzania and your life-long love affair with Africa will officially begin. We know ours has.
