Why travel to Tanzania?

Food

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.

Culture

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.

People

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.

Nature

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.
