Tanzania is every safari holiday seeker's dream destination,
whether a honeymooner
of travelling en famille, with a larger quantity and diversity of
game than anywhere else in the world. On the vast stage of the
Serengeti's short grass plains, the greatest
animal migration on earth plays out each year, which unsurprisingly
makes it a very popular destination for luxury safari holidays. On

the world and a fine challenge even if you are not a mountaineer,
as it is a non-technical climb. A couple of our very own Original
Travellers have completed the feat so it can't be that hard!
