Experience a Wildlife Safari

Tanzania is home to the most amazing safari destinations in the world. With sixteen National Parks and impressive conservation areas covering nearly one quarter of the country, a safari in Tanzania is absolutely unforgettable.

Tanzania is the only place in the world where you can see the Great Migration – the  annual pilgrimage of nearly two million animals searching for water and land for grazing. You will experience the untouched beauty of Tanzania whether on foot on a walking safari, in the air in a hot air balloon, or even from the comfort of your luxury safari vehicle.

Experience our Mountains

From the first-time climber to the seasoned mountain trekker, Tanzania has an option for you. Most popular, of course, is Mt. Kilimanjaro, the tallest mountain in Africa and one of the tallest in the world with many routes of varying difficulty. 

Other trekking options include Mt. Meru which can be climbed prior to Kilimanjaro as a way to acclimate or on its own,  the Ngorongoro Highlands as well as many other smaller hikes which Above Africa is happy to arrange.  There is nothing quite like seeing Tanzania from as high as 19,000 ft (5,800 meters) above the ground.

Experience our Cultures

Tanzania is home to over 120 different tribes – each with unique customs and traditions. Because we are dedicated to educating our clients about our home, we offer cultural experiences which are culturally appropriate and meaningful. 

Day trips to local farms or coffee plantations, visits to artisan workshops, and even overnights in the village are meant to provide a new perspective for clients on the lives of Tanzanian people. Tanzania is much more than its majestic mountains and beautiful National Parks, it is the home of wonderful people who have much to share with the world.

Experience our Beaches

Just a quick flight from the Arusha region are some of the most beautiful islands in the world located in the blue green waters of the Indian Ocean. These islands offer an oasis for travelers where you can relax on white sand beaches or explore old-world towns which are relics of centuries past.

Whether visiting the marine park on Mafia Island, swimming with dolphins in Pemba, or exploring Stone Town with its fusion of African and Arab culture in Zanzibar before heading to the beautiful beaches in the north, a trip to these islands is the perfect way to end your trip to Tanzania. You will never want to go home.
