TANZANIA AND KENYA: A UNIQUE “OUT OF AFRICA” SETTING WITH ICONIC NATURAL HABITATS
Mother Nature never seizes to amaze, especially in Tanzania and Kenya, as it has that unique “Out of Africa” setting, with some of the most glorious natural destinations on the planet. With its almost endless plains of grasslands that house the Big 5 and a diversity of other wild animals, it is no wonder that it is so well known to safari enthusiasts.
Witness one of the greatest natural phenomena on earth
The vast savannah plains of the Serengeti that stretch from Tanzania to Kenya form the backdrop to a spectacular annual natural event that is widely known as “the greatest wildlife show on earth”. The largest land mammal migration in the world, millions of wildebeest and zebra make their procession in search of new grazing.
Get on top of the world
The Kilimanjaro National Park in Tanzania is home to the famous Mount Kilimanjaro. Those who have conquered it unanimously agree that climbing Mount Kilimanjaro will forever change your perception of the world. The same applies for witnessing it. Here are some fast facts:
- Mount Kilimanjaro rises 4,900 metres from its base – and 5,895 metres above sea level.
- It is Africa’s highest mountain and the highest freestanding mountain in the world.
- Also a dormant volcano, it has three volcanic cones: “Kibo”, “Mawenzi”, and “Shira”.
View some of the most legendary natural wonders
Tanzania and Kenya feature a plethora of some of the most spectacular natural destinations. Here are our two three must-sees:
- Mara river crossing: If timed correctly witnessing more than a million wildebeest and zebra crossing the Mara river is truly astonishing.
- Ngorongoro Crater: The Ngorongoro Crater can be found in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area in the north of Tanzania. Around 20km wide and 600m deep, this natural wonder is the largest unbroken, non-flooded caldera in the world. Wildlife in the crater is bountiful.
- The Maasai people: A unique semi-nomadic ethnic group that resides close to the game parks in the north of Tanzania and the south of Kenya. The Maasai people have many fascinating traditions.
