Many people, remembering their childhood fears, do not dare to visit this amazing country in the end, and in vain. There is no, vigilance, lose, of course, not worth, but, however, as and in any other place on a map. Travelers who first found themselves in Tanzania, enthusiastically talk about how they watched the first rays of the sun, being right in the crater of the volcano Ngorongoro, extinct more than 2.5 million years ago, or how they met a herd of graceful antelopes, wayward zebras, original hyenas, Royal leopards, stunning flamingos and, of course, lions. And after the end of all the words of admiration from the contemplation of African nature, you can go straight to the Maasai to see how and what today lives this tribe, learn to dance and welcome to understand what the real “African passion”.
