Tanzania Travel Guide
Tanzania is an excellent African safari destination giving you the opportunity to see all of the Big Five. One of the best experiences is witnessing the Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra crossing the plains of the beautiful Serengeti and Mara River, trying to avoid the jaws of crocodiles and other predators. Apart from the abundance of wildlife, Tanzania offers a rich diversity of natural landscapes and experiences.
The Serengeti is one of the 7 UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Tanzania and one of the older ecosystems in the world. The plains sweep up to Lake Victoria. Tanzania is also home to the world's largest intact volcanic caldera, the Ngorongoro Crater, and the tallest mountain in Africa; Mount Kilimanjaro. Apart from these well-known highlights, Tanzania offers a lot more stunning beauty. It counts 17 National Parks, including Arusha National National Park, Lake Manyara famous for its flamingos, and Tarangire National Park. The Northern part of Tanzania is the most popular and visited park, but Selous Game Reserve and Ruah National Park in southern Tanzania are also well worth a visit.
A well-known tribe is the Maasai; opt for a bushwalk with a Maasai guide and learn more about their culture and the bush. Lots of safari trips in Tanzania are luxury and high-priced, but you can also find inexpensive (overland) safari tours. You can also think about volunteering in Tanzania to contribute to (wildlife) conservation.
After your safari-trip in Tanzania extend your trip to the tropical Zanzibar (or Pemba) to enjoy the white sandy beaches. The food is also delicious; expect a mixture of Arabic, Indian and African influences.
