TRAVEL IN TANZANIA

Sun, sea and unique sites: Tanzania is a feast for the senses. Boasting some of the world’s most breath-taking beaches and national parks, dig up everything this naturally-beautiful nation has to offer. The crowning jewel of Tanzania, go right into the heart of this amazing region with a trip to the Kilimanjaro National Park. First things first: you’ll want to do some climbing. 

The highlight of a trip to Kilimanjaro is climbing its signature mountain. Standing at 5895 metres high, experiencing Mount Kilimanjaro by foot is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. If you’re up for a challenge, try climbing up to Kibo Peak, the alpine peak of Kilimanjaro. If you want to keep it light, head up to the Shira Plateau instead.

When it comes to what to do in Tanzania, make sure you put going on safari at the top of your list. There’s no better place to see the Big Five than at the Serengeti National Park. One of the most phenomenal national parks in the world, Serengeti is most famous for the Great Migration. This bi-annual event sees millions of animals stampede across the plain in search for water. Witnessing this phenomenal natural event is nothing short of life-changing.

Keen to add a bit of culture to your trip? Check out some of Tanzania’s amazing museums. Learn about the natural and social history of the country at the National Museum of Tanzania, as well as understanding more about its political history at the Peace Memorial. 

Want to get a taste for how the royals once lived? Check out the Sultan’s Palace in Zanzibar. One of the most impressive examples of Arab architecture on the island, this place is nothing short of stunning. If you’re into architecture and design, make some time to walk through the narrow streets of Stone Town, before ending up on the pristine white-sand beaches of this beautiful island. 

With so many things to see and do, you’ll love every minute of your trip to Tanzania.
