Destination Information for Tanzania

There are more than 120 different ethnic groups and cultures in Tanzania, but the country is peaceful and safe, making it an appealing destination for visitors. Most tourists come for a safari holiday or to trek in the snow-capped mountainous region in the Northeast of the country. It’s also possible to arrange a cultural tour and experience the life of the locals, learning about Tanzanian customs and traditions around the country.

If you’re heading to the Serengeti or on a safari, huge herds of wildebeest, zebra and buffalo migrate during January and February, so you’re almost guaranteed an incredible view.
