Safari in Tanzania and see one of the new seven wonders of the world, The Great Migration.
Kilimanjaro dominates Tanzanian tourism as much as it does the skyline. Africa's largest mountain is a majestic sight, a demanding climb and (for those with the agility and energy to tackle it) a deserving feat. Look beyond its shadow though and you will be rewarded with a UNESCO World Heritage site, plains dense with predators and ancient human history.
Rewards don't come bigger than the Serengeti. The boundless grassland of Tanzania's oldest National Park is home to lions, cheetahs and leopards, and it's so expansive that to witness a predator in action is often the preserve of your jeep alone.
Among their prey are the gazelles, zebras and some 1.5 million wildebeest, which rove the desert for grass to graze. Following the calving season, this mass of hooves ascends north into Kenya. This spectacle is known as the Great Migration and is considered to be one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
Predators are not in short supply either, and the UNESCO honoured Ngorongoro Crater boasts the densest population of lions on the planet. The Conservation Park is also home to the 'Big Five'.
Today the park may be the preserve of wildlife, but there is evidence that humans once stalked the savannah. Fossils uncovered at the Olduvai Gorge include a giant horned sheep and enormous ostriches, but it's the Homo Habilis (the world's first humans) which are the area's most important discovery - though up against two million years of human history, even Mount Kilimanjaro can seem insignificant.
