TANZANIA 
Serengeti Safari and Zanzibar
Zanzibari Cuisine

Zanzibari Cuisine
The diverse cuisine of Zanzibar is characterized by its origins as a flourishing spice island and the fusion of colonial influences from Arabs and Persians in the 9th century to the 20th century relationship with China that established soy sauce as a surprisingly commonplace ingredient.  Spice plantations have become less a business of trade and more a source of popular tourism on the island, but Zanzibar was once known as a major exporter of cloves, vanilla, nutmeg and cardamom across the world. The spices were brought... 

The Maasai People

The Maasai People
The Maasai are a semi-nomadic people who live in southern Kenya and northern Tanzania along the Great Rift Valley, having migrated south in the 15th century.  To much of the Western world, the Maasai are characterized by their dedication to age-old customs -in recent years the Kenyan and Tanzanian governments have instituted programs to encourage the Maasai to abandon their traditional lifestyle, with little success.  Many Maasai tribes welcome visits to their village to experience their unique and cherished culture. 

Witness Africa's legendary "Circle of Life" on daily safaris following the giant herds of elephant, zebra, antelope or wildebeest across the Serengeti Park with the backdrop of snowcapped Mt. Kilimanjaro, as lions and cheetahs lounge in the shade. Visit a local Maasai village, descend to the floor of magnificent Ngorongoro Crater, and see the Olduvai Gorge, the "cradle of humanity,” before flying to the Arabian-infused Zanzibar with its beaches and worldwide reputation as the Spice Island.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration
Every year, from January to March, the Ngorongoro area of Tanzania comes alive with 200,000 gazelles, 750,000 zebra, and 1.2 million wildebeest traveling together in a spectacle unlike any other on the planet: the Great Migration.  The day to day movement of these migrating herds is unpredictable, as wildebeest have no natural leader and will often split up or even go in different directions - however, the general path for all these animals is the same, making their journey from Tanzania to Maasai Mara Reserve in lower Kenya.
