Iconic Tanzania

“Dr Livingstone I presume?” These are the immortal words spoken by American explorer Henry Morton Stanley upon meeting fellow explorer and missionary Dr. David Livingstone on the shores of Lake Tanganyika in western Tanzania over 150 years ago. This famous line is as familiar today to people the world over as the names Serengeti, Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar, Ngorongoro and Masai.

Tanzania is one of those special places – a country familiar to most long before they can locate it on a map. A country that truly has it all, from animal filled plains to snow capped peaks; from enormous lakes to white sands and turquoise oceans; from modern cities to ancient cultures.

Tanzanian history stretches back to a time when our earliest human ancestors first walked the earth. A time of volcanoes and prehistoric animals, unlocked in the rocks of Olduvai Gorge by the world-renowned paleontologists Mary and Louis Leakey. With over one fifth of its surface area protected, Tanzania is the perfect place for first time safari goers and more experienced travellers alike and Zoom Photo Safaris has the experience and skills to help plan and implement your African trip of a lifetime.
