Tanzania boasts outstanding opportunities for viewing wildlife in their natural habitat and offers some of the finest game viewing on the continent. A vast amount of the country is protected within a park or reserve and of these the vast open plains of the Serengeti, famous for the annual migration of millions of animals, is the most well known. Africa's Eden, the unique Ngorongoro Crater, is another popular safari destination. The word 'safari' had its origins in Tanzania, a Swahili word meaning 'journey', and there are unlimited safari options that can be tailor-made by any tour operator, with accommodation ranging from luxury lodges to camping. A journey by vehicle, foot, horseback or hot air balloon into prime game-viewing country is an experience not to be missed.
