Tanzania is one of Africa's greatest safari destinations, home to the legendary Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro as well as the 'spice island' of Zanzibar. This fully revised edition of the guide covers every accessible national park, reserve and safari destination as well as popular and off-the-beaten-track tourist attractions. It includes in-depth coverage of wildlife and natural history, background information on the Maasai and other tribes, archaeological points of interest and an introduction to the Swahili language. It is the only guidebook to include the many new private concessions around the major reserves.
