Tanzania — Though Kenya and Tanzania offer some of the safari experiences on the continent, and Uganda and newly safe Rwanda are the only places to see the world’s 700 remaining mountain gorillas, there’s more to East Africa than wild animals. You’ll also find pristine beaches, sacred sites, the highest peak on the continent, and Kampala, one of Africa’s most welcoming capitals. If everything you know about the region comes from movies Hotel Rwanda and The Last King of Scotland, you’re in for a treat.

Why Go

For thriving cities like Kampala, romantic islands, and wildlife-rich national parks.
