Tanzania Zanzibar Balloon SafariImagine an undiscovered country. A land of wide open spaces and magnificent wildlife, of idyllic palm- fringed islands set in turquoise seas, of explorers' tales and sultans' palaces, of a warm and hospitable people. Imagine Tanzania, where you can rediscover the wild, romantic Africa of your dreams, where you can relive all the enchantment of an ageless continent while still enjoying all the comforts and luxuries of modern life. Tanzania is to the wildlife enthusiast the Africa of our imagination. Boasting over 95,000 square miles of reserves, Tanzania is one of the best game viewing countries in Africa. From Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, to Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa, visitors will find a country with vast and breathtaking vistas. The complete African safari experience is truly represented in game reserves and national parks such as the Serengeti, the annual setting of the wondrous wildebeest migration; Ngorongoro Crater, the unique, biodiverse amphitheatre; Selous Game Reserve, the vast and least well known park, and the amazing array of birdlife at Lake Manyara. East Africa has also been called the cradle of mankind. Early hominid footprints which date back an estimated 3.5 million years were discovered at Laetoli in Tanzania and a 1.7 million year old Zinjanthropus boisei skull was found at Olduvai Gorge. And not to be forgotten are the "Spice Islands" off Tanzania's coast, collectively known as Zanzibar. Welcome to Tanzania, unsurpassed Africa.
