Welcome to Tanzania, home to the world's highest freestanding mountain, magnificent white sandy beaches and of course one of Africa's most spectacular wildlife reserves.

Why travel to Tanzania?

Experiencing the wilderness and wildlife in its purest form as a solo traveler can be easier than you think. If you've ever wanted to travel to a place where nature still rules, Tanzania will not disappoint! How about watching two million wildebeest flood the Serengeti at sunset? Or climbing to the "roof of Africa" to complete one of the highest non-technical hikes on earth? Tanzania is bursting with awe. In just a small amount of time, you can experience a huge amount of breathtaking things. Solo travel is a great way to immerse yourself in the culture, connect with the locals, and meet other like-minded travelers on your trip.


Tanzania's local food is a blend of traditional African cuisine, with a range that includes strong influences from Middle Eastern and Indian cuisine and spices, especially along the coast and in Tanzania.


Tanzanian society is rich in ancient cultures and traditions that remain to this day. Tanzania is home to over 120 ethnic groups and various religious beliefs that continue to shape the country today. Respect for elders is a defining feature of the local culture.


The Tanzanian population is an Arab-African mix. Nevertheless, there are also significant Asian communities, especially Indian, in the cities, while tribes inhabit the rural areas, including the Maasai of the Great Rift Valley in the north. The two official languages are Swahili and English, with many other traditional languages.


Tanzania's flora is as diverse as its wildlife, ranging from tropical rainforests to woodlands and, of course, the great plains. When you climb Kilimanjaro, you will cross several climatic zones, from equatorial rainforests surrounded to almost arctic conditions.
