Home of Africa’s highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania is known for its beautiful sandy beaches, vast savannas and untamed wildlife. Herds of gazelles, zebras and wildebeests graze along with majestic elephants and giraffes, almost posing for the photos being taken from the safari jeeps. Mountain lodges let you wake up to the sound of birds and monkeys before you hit the treks and trails in the dense jungle. And the beach resorts along the coast will serve you the freshest seafood, brought ashore by the fishermen that same morning. 
Tanzania’s cities also have their charming African appeal. None more than the capital, Dar es Salaam, which offers a lively atmosphere with bustling markets selling anything from crafts to street food. And just a few miles offshore is the island of Zanzibar, a small sandy paradise that has inspired poets and artists alike with its sheer natural beauty.
