Tanzania & Kenya, two of the most famous safari nations in Africa. These nations border the Indian Ocean in the east, and are both hailed as some of most impressive eco tourism destinations on the African continent. The legendary Masai Mara, and Serengeti National Parks, Ngorongoro Crater, Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Kenya are all names known to many adventurous travelers around the world.
Perhaps the most famous is the Great Migration where herd animals in astounding numbers migrate across the African plans, followed by an entourage of predators and it always delivers an unforgettable wildlife drama. Several acclaimed luxury safari lodges have been developed in settings unsurpassed elsewhere.
Beyond safari there’s the opportunity to travel easily to the Zanzibar Archipelago, just off the mainland of Tanzania. Comprising two larger islands Unguja (known as Zanzibar) and Pemba and a group of smaller islets, these “Spice Islands” are a tropical paradise.
A variety of accommodation choices including luxury options are available on the different islands, all boasting idyllic white, palm fringed beaches lapped by warm turquoise waters. Water sports abound and is one of the top choices for coral reef diving in the Indian Ocean.
