Greece - Santorini and The Lost Atlantis
Thira (Greek: Θήρα [ˈθira]), is an island in the southern Aegean Sea, about 200 km (120 mi) southeast from Greece's mainland. It is the largest island of a small, circular archipelago which bears the same name and is the remnant of a volcanic caldera. It forms the southernmost member of the Cyclades group of islands, with an area of approximately 73 km2 (28 sq mi) and a 2001 census population of 13,670. The municipality of Santorini comprises the inhabited islands of Santorini and Therasia and the uninhabited islands of Nea Kameni, Palaia Kameni, Aspronisi, and Christiana. The total land area is 90.623 km2 (34.990 sq mi).
The island is the site of one of the largest volcanic eruptions in recorded history: the Minoan eruption (sometimes called the Thera eruption), which occurred some 3600 years ago at the height of the Minoan civilization. The eruption left a large caldera surrounded by volcanic ash deposits hundreds of metres deep and may have led indirectly to the collapse of the Minoan civilization on the island of Crete, 110 km (68 mi) to the south, through a gigantic tsunami. Another popular theory holds that the Thera eruption is the source of the legend of Atlantis
Tanzania - The Serengeti and Zanzibar
The United Republic of Tanzania is a country of exceptional geographic diversity; from the lofty heights of Kilimanjaro, the tallest free standing mountain in the world, to the rolling plains of the Serengeti and the tropical beach paradises of Zanzibar, the spice island. Tanzania offers the African experience on a truly grand scale.
Two of Africa's most celebrated wilderness areas - the Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti - are located in northern Tanzania and boast some of the largest concentrations of game on the continent. The latter acts as a stage for one of the world's natural wonders as close to two million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle migrate through the Serengeti ecosystem annually. Also found here are the famous soda lakes of the Great Rift Valley, notably Lakes Natron and Manyara, which attract a multitude of flamingos every year. The lesser-known areas of the Selous, Katavi, Ruaha and Mahale flaunt an abundance of animals in the wildest possible settings. These areas exude an aura of untrammelled wilderness, conserved by limited accessibility, and truly belong to the animals. Mahale is situated on the sandy shores of Lake Tanganyika, the second deepest lake in the world, and offers an exceptional opportunity to trek with wild chimpanzee in this Robinson Crusoe setting.
Tanzania is home to some of the earliest known human development, it was at Olduvai Gorge that the Leakey family made revelatory anthropological discoveries and at Gombe Stream that Jane Goodall began to unlock the secrets of our cousins and our evolution.
The population of Tanzania is 37 million, united by a shared experience of nationhood and a common language. Culturally rich, the Tanzanians are famed for their warmth, dignity and hospitality; from the Maasai in the north to the distinctly middle-eastern inspired Swahili culture of coastal Zanzibar.
With fabulous game, wonderfully diverse wilderness areas and vibrant cultures Tanzania is a must for the safari aficionado.
