Tanzania – Things to do

Things to do in Tanzania

Tanzania has 17 national parks, including the magnificent Serengeti, which is home to over 400 species of animals set in an ancient landscape. For more wildlife, the Ngorongoro crater forms a natural enclosure for the rare black rhino and the unusual crater lions. Mount Kilimanjaro can also be found in one of the national parks. For something a little different, the islands of the archipelago are steeped in fascinating history and diverse culture.
