Imagine your trip to Tanzania, designed for lifelong memories
In this East African country lies the mighty Mt Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa and the world´s highest free-standing volcano. Two of it ́s three volcanic cones are extinct, but the highest one, Kibo at 5895 metres, can still erupt. You can reach this snow-capped summit with the help of a guide.
For a shorter trek, Kilimanjaro´s little sister, Mt Meru, is 4562 metres and towers over Arusha National Park. Although challenging in it´s own right, you can hike this gem independently and you can do so along giraffes, elephants and antelopes as is it part of Arusha National Park. It´s considered a favorite amongst trekkers and the sunrise view of Kili from the top is nothing short of astonishing.
This part of the country is in addition to mountainous, also densely forrested. The Eastern part of Tanzania is hot and humid, but you can find your way down to Dar es Salaam and get on a ferry out to Zanzibar if you need a little wind in your hair.
Zanzibar, including Pumba, has some of the best and most unspoiled, beaches in the world. A powdery beach, clear skies, palm trees and the Indian Ocean is not a bad backdrop for scuba diving or snorkeling. If you like that, you´ll love Mafia Island, a short flight from Dar es Salaam. This is one of the few places in the world, and the only place in Africa, where you can actually swim with Whale Sharks.
Tanzania also has some incredible waterfalls, the Kalambo Falls and Rusumu Falls to named a couple. Go on a boat safari on one of Africa ́s Great Lakes and get a lake view of surroundings like nowhere else.
The abundance of wildlife and the presence of charismatic species is the reason Tanzania is Africa´s number one safari destination. Of course the Big 5 are all here - the elephant, buffalo, leopard, lion and rhino. To see them in their own habitats is a fascinating experience. So is studying some of the numerous insects and birds. The Tanzanian fauna is second to none!
Some of the best parks for safaris are found in the North. Serengeti is where to see the great wildebeest migration to Masai Mara in Kenya. When over a million of these remarkable animals starts moving, it is truly Africa´s greatest spectacle.
In the highlands of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area you´ll find lots of elephants, and in the Ngorongoro Crater are much of the same diverse wildlife as in the Serengeti.
Tarangire National Park is another national park and it is striking all year around. This is the best place for elephant spotting in the country. With a little luck you can see herds with up to 300 elephants. And there are massive Baobab trees here, making the postcard views even more spectacular.
There are also great and less touristy national parks in the South, like Ruaha National Park. Ruaha has a large lion population, as well as other big cats and rare hunting dogs. Here you can also see villagers live like they have for centuries, among wild creatures and at one with nature.
For locals to continue living life as normal, a common goal for travelers has recent years been to leave our tourist destinations the same as when we arrived. Luckily, Tanzania is a great eco tourism destination and there´s a good selection to choose from everywhere in the country.
The eco tourism naturalist guides that take you out are of especially high quality. They´re knowledgeable, experienced and sociable and they can take you out on camping safaris under starry skies, or they can show you villages where you´ll be greeted with smiling, playful children.
Tanzania is waiting for you.
