Tanzania is your ideal bush and beach destination. It is home to Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, which rises from lush, grassy plains and towers over this beautiful land. Its snow-capped peak is a sight to behold. Climbing Kilimanjaro is a life-changing experience. On a safari with Virgin Wilderness Safaris, you can explore Tanzania’s spectacular landscapes from the famous ‘northern circuit’ safaris ( like the Ngorongoro, Manyara,Serengeti and Tarangire) to the wild parks of southern Tanzania.
The remote and hidden treasures of Southern Tanzania(Selous Game Reserve, Ruaha National Park, Mikumi and Udzungwa national parks) and the authentic, very remote Western areas of Katavi National Park, Mahale Mountains National Park famous for their wild chimpanzees. Tanzania’s beaches, especially those on its islands, the famous Zanzibar-The spicy, exotic island of Zanzibar conjures up an amazing image. Tanzania’s safari areas are very different; but they all end very well with a trip to the beautiful beaches.
