Highlights of Tanzania

With the uniting of Tanganyika and the Island of Zanzibar in 1963, the republic of Tanzania formed. Tanzania is the one of the most popular countries of the African continent. It was formerly a colony of German East Africa from 1886 to 1919, and subsequently a British mandate until independence in 1961. Prior to independence there were over 120 native languages spoken, but with independence, Kiswahili, which was originally a native language of Tanzania, was chosen as the National language. With its wealth of natural resources, wildlife, and friendly and humble people, this is a country where you will have an unforgettable stay.

Kilimanjaro, Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Zanzibar, and much more, along with the natives’ smiles, will make your safari to Tanzania complete. Get out and enjoy your vacation in Tanzania the way it was meant to be experienced – in nature!
