Almost half of Tanzania's national parks are located in Northern Tanzania, including Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area and Mount Kilimanjaro National Park. The second edition of this tightly focused guide is fully revised throughout, including extensive updates on the best accommodation in every price bracket, from luxury lodges to simple hotels and hostels, and the best of the safaris. There's in-depth coverage of the wildlife and natural history of the region, information on Tanzania's 120 tribes and how to interact with them, historical and cultural points of interest such as rock art and the discovery of tanzanite, and an introduction to the Swahili language.

About the Author
Based in South Africa, Philip Briggs has travelled extensively throughout the continent. He is the author of Bradt's Ghana, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Ethiopia and Uganda, and is the co-author of Rwanda.
'but here he has done an outstanding job for the North. His clear style, balanced judgments and immense knowledge alone make the book worth reading. Briggs' love for Africa, and his deep respect for its people, inform and illuminate the whole experience. It goes without saying that both titles are supported by the immense apparatus of practical information we have come to expect from this publisher. This information includes all aspects of health and safety, which leaves the Rough Guide to Travel Survival in something of a limbo. Its coverage is universal, and no doubt very sound, but rather thin. Bilharzia, for example, the bane of many parts of Africa, gets a mere mention, where both Bradts give it a full page' Travel Africa 'Required reading for all travellers to Tanzania' Terri Rice
