LAKE NATRON

Lake Natron is a mineral-rich soda lake in northern Tanzania, on the Kenyan border. The lake is a breeding ground for hundreds of thousands of lesser flamingos, despite the highly alkaline state of the striking red waters. It sits below Ol Doinyo Lengai, a soaring active volcano in the Rift Valley.

Kilimanjaro Machame Route

MOUNT KILIMANJARO

Mount Kilimanjaro is the world’s highest freestanding mountain and also Africa’s highest peak, at 5985m. Climbing Kilimanjaro is justifiably considered a once in a lifetime experience. The lower slopes are dense with forest, it is surrounded by vast expanses of savannah, the peak is ice-capped, and the views from the top are breathtaking.

Kilimanjaro Machame Route

MOUNT MERU

Mount Meru is perfect for acclimatization prior to a Mount Kilimanjaro climb or for those seeking a lower altitude climb. The mountain is the third highest peak in Africa and is the second highest mountain in Tanzania at 4568m.

Serengeti Lamai

ZANZIBAR

Zanzibar is the main island in the Tanzanian archipelago of Zanzibar. Stone Town, part of Zanzibar City, is an old trade centre, with mosques and winding lanes. The Zanzibar beaches are the perfect place to relax after your safari or mountain trek.

Serengeti Lamai

PANGANI BEACH

Pangani beach stretches as far as you can see in each direction and because it faces due east you’ll see some beautiful sunrises. This is a laid-back, relaxing place and one of the few spots in Tanzania where you can enjoy the bush and the beach at the same time.

Mafia Island Tanzania

MAFIA ISLAND

With crystal clear waters, Mafia Island is a jewel of the Indian ocean. The island is home to pristine coral reefs, whale sharks and humpback whales.
