Known as the stage for one of the most spectacular and awe-inspiring natural phenomena on the planet, Tanzania attracts discerning travelers from around the globe to witness The Great Migration, an annual migration of millions of wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebras. Situated along with one of the main routes, Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park offers visitors a rare look into bewildering animal migration patterns and boasts unbelievable game-viewing opportunities.

The Great Migration isn’t the only natural force pulling people to Tanzania. From Zanzibar’s beaches to the chimpanzees of the Mahale Mountains and the vast Serengeti Plains to the legendary Ngorongoro Crater, travelers on a Tanzanian safari vacation can experience a revitalizing combination of relaxation, adventure, and discovery.
