Fun Facts About TANZANIA

Mount Meru

Towering over Arusha town, Mount Meru is the 2nd highest peak in Tanzania, and the 5th highest peak in Africa. Our hotel in Arusha offers uninterrupted views of this peak.


One of the most famous and loved parks, it is home to more than one million species of large mammals. It’s also a World Heritage Site, and has also had the honor of being named a 7th world wonder.


The world's largest inactive, intact and unfilled volcanic caldera. The enclosed nature of the crater has created an ecosystem all of its own, resulting in some of the best opportunities to spot game. It also has the densest known population of lions.


This island archipelago is only 20 miles off the coast of mainland Africa. Also known as the Spice Islands, you'll find clove, cinnamon, and nutmeg, as part of the islands top industry. The historic town center of Stone Town is a World Heritage Site.
