Masai People in Zanzibar Tanzania




The nation of Tanzania conjures excitement and adventure. Its landscape is stunning and its beauty unmatched. Natural resources abound: Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain; Lake Tanganyika, Africa's deepest lake; and Lake Victoria, the world's second largest lake and the source of the Nile. Tanzania’s riches also include game parks of international fame: Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti, Lake Manyara, plus the less-frequented Selous, Ruaha, Mikumi, Gombe where wildlife roams in teeming numbers. Nearly one quarter of Tanzania’s 938,000 km2 has been reserved for game and national parks. Extensions to the nearby exotic Zanzibar can easily be added.
