The Land of Kilimanjaro & Zanzibar

Tourist's sites in Tanzania are indeed God sent gifts. Visitors to Tanzania do not only encounter the overwhelming force of nature but also enjoy a serene contact with it.

They observe it and feel it at work in almost all the national parks and game reserves. Mountain climbers can also have a field training trying to reach the top of the highest mountain in Africa. For beach lovers, the palms on the sandy beaches of marking the western shores of the Indian Ocean do offer the peace and comfort for relaxation, while the Indian Ocean offers all sorts of opportunities ranging from swimming, angling, sailing and other water sports, as well as the opportunity to view its treasures, the colourful living and non-living resources. All this can be enjoyed in welcoming atmosphere of the friendly and hospitable Tanzanians.

Tanzania is proud to be the exclusive home of:

  1. THE KILIMANJARO: This is a snow-capped mountain, just south of the Equator. At 5895 meters above sea level, the Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa and the tallest free standing in the world.

Visitor's Testimony

Journey to Tanzania, by Juan Marcos de Miquel Sagnier

Good morning,
First of all, I apologize for not writing in French. Secondly, after visiting Tanzania (Arusha, Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengeti) with my family last Easter, I wish on one hand, to congratulate you for the fantastic sites that were presented to us; and on the other hand, express appreciation for the impeccable treatment, that Tanzanians accorded to us throughout our trip. Some members of my family still dream every night with Tanzania and my little boy has promised to return to Tanzania when he has his own family and his own money.

Best regards,
Juan Marcos de Miquel Sagnier


Buenos días,
En primer lugar disculparme por no escribir en francés. En segundo lugar después de visitar Tanzania (Arusha, Tarangire, Ngorongoro and Serengueti) junto a mi familia la pasada semana santa quisiera, por un lado felicitarles por el fantástico país que se nos ha presentado y por otro agradecer el trato, siempre impecable, que nos han ofrecido los tanzanos a lo largo de toda nuestro viaje. Algunos miembros de mi familia todavía sueñan cada noche con Tanzania y mi hijo pequeño ha prometido que cuando tenga su propia familia y su propio dinero piensa volver.

Un cordial saludo,
Juan Marcos de Miquel Sagnier
