Travel Tour Destinations in Tanzania
Tanzania can well be described as Africa’s tourism capital. Tourism in Tanzania is so important that some of Africa’s best wildlife destinations cover about 25% of the country’s landmass. The parks are some of the largest in Africa and the world with unmatched diversity. Up in the North lies the world’s highest free standing mountain, Kilimanjaro, promising a thrilling adventure that is scalable by both novices and seasoned climbers. It has been scaled by a 7-year-old from India, United States and an elderly couple from Canada aged 84 and 85 years. The mountain supports an ecosystem that is critical to many of the north faunal diversity, all the way to Kenya. The nearby Serengeti is hosts the largest movement of land mammals in the world. Olduvai Gorge is well known as the site where some of the oldest humanoid remains were found. The Tanzanian coast has some of the richest history in Africa, all the way before and after the slave trade. The south has some of Africa’s most undisturbed natural African safari destinations. All in all, a trip to Africa has to include Tanzania.
There are seven World Heritage Sites in Tanzania. Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken and un-flooded volcanic caldera in the world, with spectacular landscapes teeming with wildlife. The Serengeti hosts an annual migration of millions of wildebeest making a 1000 km journey North in to the Masai Mara in Kenya and back in to Tanzania. They are usually given a rousing welcome by the predators wherever they pass resulting in some of the most thrilling wildlife experiences anywhere in the world. Down south, Selous, Ruaha and Katavi are unspoiled remote wildernesses, home to thousands of elephants and bovines, and packs of rare African wild dogs and other diverse predators. Lake Tanganyika is among the most beautiful lakes in the world. Lake Manyara was a personal favorite of Ernest Hemingway. The silver beaches and well preserved history and culture of the Tanzanian coast, and further into the Indian Ocean Islands making up Zanzibar, will awe the most seasoned of travelers. Combine Zanzibar with a history trip to Bagamoyo or even Kilwa to see the ruins of Kisiwani and Songo Mnara. Thereafter, head off to the private island of Fanjove or Lazy Lagoon for an unadulterated beach escape. Find all the fascination of African travel in the inimitable richness of Tanzania.
Cultural visits in the different parts of Tanzania are as fulfilling as the wildlife safari and should be taken as an extra at every destination.
