Tanzania Mainland Coast

Tanzania's mainland coast has, to the everyday tourist, been overshadowed by Zanzibar Island. Now, as Zanzibar becomes ever busier, discerning travellers look for new beach areas along the immense and beautiful Tanzania seaboard. Here ancient Swahili history, culture and hospitality combine with hundreds of miles of endless beaches and the warm Indian Ocean.

Family Camping Safari in North Tanzania

A truly wonderful holiday and it all worked like a dream thanks to you and all the team.
