Home to some of the largest game reserves in Africa and still wonderfully wild, it boasts iconic destinations such as the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro as well as the famed spice islands of Zanzibar. It offers travellers an authentic Africa with great variety. Africa's largest lake, Lake Victoria and Africa's deepest lake, Lake Tanganyika, can be found to the north and the west of the country, whilst toward the center lies a large plateau with fertile soils and vast open plains.
As with all of Africa, water dictates the time of year you wish to travel, all depending on what it is you wish to experience. There are 2 rain seasons in Tanzania:
The long rains run from late March to the end of June, falling in heavy downpours and often accompanied by spectacular thunderstorms and lightning. The short rains from November to January are far less severe.
