TANZANIA

Tanzania is one of Africa’s most sought after travel destinations. With Mount Kilimanjaro as a top selling point, along with a host of national parks like the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater, and its famous islands such as Zanzibar. Tanzania truly is a dream come true on any overland adventure or budget safari.

Kilimanjaro

At 5895m, this dormant volcano is Africa’s highest peak. Every year floods of people come into the gateway town of Arusha to begin for their departure up Kilimanjaro. A variety of tour options cater for hikers of different fitness levels but to summit this mountain is no walk in the park. Hikes usually take between 5 and 15 days with a possibility of 7 different established routes. For those not wanting to scale the huge peak, you are able to explore the beautiful park located at the base of the mountain.

Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Crater

The most popular park in Tanzania, the Serengeti is truly a wondrous site. Once a year visitors are blessed with the experience of a life time. The great migration. Wildebeest, zebra and gazelle move from the Serengeti up North into Masai Mara National Reserve in order to find greener pastures. The wildebeest alone move in numbers of over two million. For an amazing view you can even take a hot air balloon to get a bird’s eye view of this breath taking spectacle.

The Ngorongoro Crater is the world’s largest unfilled, intact, and inactive volcanic caldera in the world and is located just next to the Serengeti. It is a world heritage site and its highlands are filled with an abundance of animals.

Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar

Dar es Salaam is commercial port and a major city of Tanzania, it is also the gate way to the Zanzibar island. Dar es Salaam hosts a great deal of cultural activities including tribal dancing and fossils of some of our earliest human ancestors.

Zanzibar is the island highlight of Tanzania and a not to be missed trip on a ferry to this beautiful sandy paradise. With its white sands, endless coral reefs, palm trees filed with coconuts and secret picnic spots, Zanzibar is the ultimate relaxation destination. Boasting both lagoons and beautiful ocean waters to swim in Zanzibar is all you could ask for on an island adventure getaway.

Your Tanzanian trip will not be short of adventure and excitement. To be sure you make the most of it read more on our overland adventures and budget safaris that travel through this major hotspot.
