At least twice as big as France, Tanzania is home to some of Africa’s most famed tourist destinations: Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire, Kilimanjaro, and Zanzibar. The Ngorongoro Crater is the largest intact caldera in the world. Bordered by Africa’s three largest lakes – Lake Malawi, Lake Tanganyika, and Lake Victoria. Boasts spectacular views of game-filled plains as well as the annual Great Migration of millions of herbivores.
