Same as my previous comment, the country and people are fantastic, the wildlife plentiful, it would be a shame not to go there if you have the opportunity

Nice people, great scenery and in general a nice country to visit. Traffic in the large cities are cramped as in most urban places in Africa.

Absolutely smashing. The people in Tanzania are wonderful. Wildlife seems to be very much cared for.

My experience in Tanzania is one of the best in my life. It is as simple as this.

I have travelled widely in Tanzania (and elsewhere). It is a big country with lots of contrasts. Special highlights - beyond the obvious - include: Mafia Island which has wonderful diving in a relatively shallow lagoon (enabling snorkellers to see a lot); the Usambara Mountains with the lovely old German rest house at Amani and the deafening dawn chorus of trumpeter hornbills; and the excavated ruins of Kilwa Kisiwani.

Tanzania is a diverse and beautiful country. It has a range of safari options (budget to luxury) and is a safe and peaceful country. Even as a largely independent traveler making my own transportation and accommodation arrangements, I did not feel unsafe.

Exceptional wildlife and expansive landscapes.

It's hard to beat the wildlife, biodiversity, and expansive landscapes of Tanzania. From the highest peak on the continent to Ngorongoro wildlife rich crater, from the expansive Serengeti to vibrant alleyways of Stonetown on Zanzibar, Tanzania has it all and then some. If you're short on time and want to see big game, head straight to Ngorongoro. You'll see everything but giraffes here - they can't climb down/up the steep crater walls. There's so much wildlife it almost feels like a zoo. If you're more into the search and discovery style safari, and have the time, the Serengeti is for you. Better yet, do both. Climb Mt Killy to brag that you bagged the continent's summit, but for my time and money, I'd climb Mt Kenya - more beautiful and fewer traffic jams on the trail. Finally, the rich swahili culture, white sand beaches, and the alluring alleyways of Stone Town on Zanzibar are not to be missed.

This was our first trip to Africa and it lived up to all expectations. The wildlife in the Serenghetti was tremendous. We had to keep telling ourselves that it was real and not a Disney ride. We travelled with an American company, Overseas Adventure Travel, and their constant attention to detail was exceptional. Certainly seeing the major groups of wild animals was a highlight, elephants, giraffes, lions, rhinocerous, hippos, and all other animals was exceptional. The weather was perfect during our trip with little to no rain. Visiting the Masai was another exceptional experience as we had the opportunity to enter their modest homes and learn of their daily lives. As a lover of elephants I had the opportunity to spend a great deal of time photographing them and studying their interactions individually and as a group. Food was excellent and the experience of staying on the Serenghetti in tents for several days and nights was one that was a highlight. Seeing a sunset on the Serenghetti whil you are eating a gourmet meal cooked inside a field tent kitchen was amazing. Our guides were knowledgable as well as friendly and attentive. Overall I would recommend everyone to take a trip to Africa and experience the vast, beautiful continent that it is. If you can add a hot air balloon ride over the Serenghetti at dawn don't miss it.
