What Sets Tanzania Apart From the Rest

What Sets Tanzania Apart From the Rest

Welcome to the wild and wonderful world of Tanzania, where the sun-soaked plains and majestic wildlife await you at every turn. Join us at Sassabi Expeditions and learn what sets Tanzania apart from the rest.

Picture yourself journeying through the savannah, the grassy fields stretching out before you in a never-ending sea of gold and green. Herds of wildebeest and zebra roam freely, with towering giraffes and mighty elephants looking on from the distance. In the ombre of the setting sun, lions lounge in the shade, their golden eyes glinting as they stare across the vast landscape.

This is our home, and that’s just the beginning of what awaits you in Tanzania.

Nature’s Playground: What Sets Tanzania Apart From the Rest

Located in East Africa, Tanzania is a country known best for its stunning natural beauty, diverse wildlife, and vibrant culture. As a premier safari destination and our backyard, Tanzania offers a safari experience like no other.

Most famously, Tanzania is home to some of the world’s most renowned national parks and game reserves, including the SerengetiNgorongoro Crater, and Selous Game Reserve.

These protected areas provide an opportunity to witness an incredible array of wildlife, including lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, and more. What makes Tanzania’s national parks truly special, however, is the ability to see the great wildebeest migration — a natural phenomenon that involves millions of animals moving across the acacia tree-covered Serengeti in search of fresh grazing land.

Further afield, you can scope out the famous tree climbing lions of Tarangire, explore the wilds of the Selous Game Reserve, or marvel at what’s called “the photographer’s dream” (and largest National Park in Africa), the beautiful Nyerere National Park.

One of the most iconic landmarks in Tanzania is Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak on the continent, famously known as the “roof of Africa.” Climbing Kilimanjaro is a bucket list item for many travelers, and for good reason! The trek up this majestic mountain is a challenging but rewarding experience that offers unparalleled views of the surrounding landscape. Our expert guides at Sassabi Expeditions have extensive experience leading climbers up Kilimanjaro, and we offer a variety of routes to suit different skill levels, fitness, and preferences.

A Vibrant Culture, Rich History, and Inspiring Traditions

The sensory delights of Tanzania extend far beyond the natural world.

Known for its vibrant and diverse culture and boasting more than 120 different ethnic groups, Tanzania is a melting pot of traditions and customs. From the colorful Maasai people living
around the famous Ngorongoro with lions, to the Swahili coastal culture, immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and flavors of the region.

Here, you can walk across the white sand beaches of Nungwi, the sun glistening along the water as the breeze dances through the coco palms. Or, explore the bustling markets of Zanzibar where the heady aroma of exotic spices mingle with the sounds of haggling and bargaining. There’s an energy — vibrant and thrilling, that’s moved through our people for generations.

At Sassabi Expeditions, we believe that cultural immersion is an essential part of any travel experience. That’s why we offer tours that allow our guests to interact with local communities, learn about traditional crafts, and sample delicious regional cuisine, and locally grown coffee.
