Tanzania Land of the Endless Plains The vast and beautiful country of Tanzania, locked between the shores of Lake Victoria and the shimmering Indian Ocean, is world-renowned for her extraordinary abundance of wildlife and fabulously unspoiled vistas. It is also home both to the exotic spice isle of Zanzibar and the magnificent snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world.
