Tanzania is one of the East African Countries. It lies between the area of the great lakes; Victoria, Tanganyika and Malawi – with the Indian Ocean on its’ coastline to the east. It has land borders with Uganda and Kenya to the north, Mozambique and Malawi to the south, Zambia to the southwest and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Rwanda and Burundi to the west.

The game viewing experiences are believed to be among the best in Africa. It is a place to see seemingly endless herds of wildebeest and zebra trekking across the plains on their annual migration followed by the predatory lions, cheetah, leopard and hyena.

Tanzania lies at an altitude of over 1,000ft, apart from a coastal strip varying in width from 10 to 40 miles. The greater part of the country is made up of plateau averaging 3,000 to 4,500ft in height. Mountains are grouped in various sections. The Pare and Usambara ranges are in the northeast and the Livingstone Mountains in the southwest. Kilimanjaro (19,340ft) in the north is the highest mountain in Africa.

On the borders are three large lakes; Victoria, the second-largest freshwater lake in the world, Tanganyika, one of the deepest in the world; and Lake Malawi. Other lakes within Tanzania include Rukwa, Manyara, Natron and Eyasi.

The country also boasts of large populations of elephants, chimpanzees and beautiful beaches.
