Welcome to Tanzania, a country that captivates visitors with its stunning landscapes, rich wildlife, and vibrant culture. Nestled on the eastern coast of Africa, Tanzania offers a diverse range of destinations that cater to every traveler’s interests. From the iconic Serengeti National Park to the magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania is a treasure trove of natural wonders. Let’s embark on a virtual journey through some of the most enchanting destinations in Tanzania
Throughout, Tanzania offers travellers an array of options, set against the backdrop of a cultural mosaic in which over 100 ethnic groups amicably rub shoulders. While most visitors head straight for the famed northern wildlife-watching circuit, followed by time relaxing on Zanzibars beaches, Tanzania has much more to offer anyone with the time and inclination to head off the beaten path. Follow the coastline south into a Swahili culture whose rhythms have remained in many ways unchanged over the centuries. Journey through rolling hill country along the Tanzam highway, detouring to Ruaha National Park. Admire ancient rock paintings around Kolo village. Explore the Lake Victoria shoreline, with its small fishing villages and tranquil islands. Experience the seldom-visited wilderness of Katavi, teeming with buffaloes and hippos.
If youre seeking creature comforts, stick to the northern safari circuit and Zanzibar, where there are sealed main roads and many hotels and restaurants. Elsewhere, and especially in the south and west, youll soon find yourself well off the beaten path, surrounded by a Tanzania thats far removed from Western development.
Safari Game Drive
Arusha National Park is often overlooked for the big game parks of Tarangire and Serengeti, but for travellers who make the effort, they will find one of East Africa’s most scenic parks with a dramatic backdrop of Mt. Meru.
Forest Walks and Waterfalls
Easy forest walks and numerous picnic sites make Arusha National Park an attractive place for a one day safari. Along the lower slopes, paths to rivers and waterfalls make a relaxing day hike for visitors who don’t want to attempt the rather arduous climb to the summit of Mount Meru. Take a picnic and find a quiet spot near a waterfall.
