Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa and boasts a long coastline along the Indian Ocean, abundant highlands in the south, serene savannas in the north, lakes and rivers teeming with fish, and fertile agricultural lands. From the rich mines yielding gold, tanzanites, rubies, garnets, tourmalines, and emeralds among others to its verdant forests where the most expensive hardwood trees in the world grow, it is home to the richest natural resources on the planet. And there stands the majestic snow-capped Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Its people is beautiful consisting of more than 120 ethnic groups following rich cultures and traditions. But what mostly draw us back to this amazing country again and again are its great outdoors and abundant wildlife that are hard to rival.

Come to Tanzania and experience the grandeur of the greatest wildlife show ever. Come to Tanzania and experience how nature's stunning beauty could bring us back to ourselves. Karibu Tanzania!
My most favorite member of the antelope family is the eland, which also happens to be the world’s largest antelope. Though heavy, it has the endurance to maintain a trot and can jump a 4-feet fence from a standstill. My first encounter with an eland was in October 2011 in a lodge adjoining a national park in Arusha. The lodge has a watering hole and various types of animals would go there in the afternoon to drink water especially during the drier months...
Driving in the parks is allowed between 6 am and 6 pm only.
The speed limit in the parks is 50km/h and 25km/h in the Ngorongoro Crater.
Animals always have the right of way.
Never feed animals. It will upset their diet and lead to an unnecessary dependence on people.
