Africa's Eastern Shores to the Cape
Travel on the “most luxurious train in the world” traversing Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Botswana enroute to Cape Town. With stays at the Victoria Falls Hotel, Madikwe Game Reserve and The Mount Nelson Hotel
Mainland Tanzania is breathtakingly immense and beautiful, and boasts the highest concentration of wildlife in the world. Off the coast, the heady fragrance of the spice groves and the soothing sight of a dhow's billowing sail make Zanzibar one of Africa's most mesmerising islands.
From the shortgrass savannah and the coral sands of Zanzibar, to snow-capped Kilimanjaro watching over the many national parks below, Tanzania captivates visitors with its beautiful diversity.
Nowhere is this variety more alive than in Tanzania’s animal kingdom. Tanzania's Parks Authority is responsible for the national parks and thanks to their anti-poaching efforts, animal numbers have increased, especially large herds of elephant, giraffe and buffalo. The Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti are home to a permanent large animal population of over a million, with an annual influx of more than two million during the dry season.
So important is the well-being of the country’s creatures that an astonishing 25% of Tanzania’s land area is given over to protected wildlife parks. A tour of Selous Game Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage site, will enable you to see the animals thriving in a very natural habitat. Elsewhere, the Madete marine park offers protection for endangered green sea turtles to lay their eggs, and Saadani’s National Park will introduce you to even more animals, including the crocodile.
