It’s no secret that Africa is full of magical destinations boasting big wildlife, idyllic landscapes, and intriguing cultures across the continent. But if there’s one country you should visit, it’s Tanzania – home to Mount Kilimanjaro, stunning beaches stretching along the Indian Ocean, and some incredible wildlife migration routes. For something that will really make your Africa trip memorable, a Tanzania adventure is a must.
Most people who come to Africa are looking for a safari experience, and Tanzania is the perfect place. Hiring a local guide in Tanzania means you’ll find yourself in highly capable hands as you safely explore and discover Africa’s Big 5: lions, elephants, leopards, buffalo, and rhinoceros. There are many different places to observe these animals in their natural habitat, including Tarangire National Park – home to a very large elephant population (six thousand of them!). You’ll even get to meet some semi-nomadic tribes, like the Maasai.
For more safari experiences, consider The Great Rift Valley. Along the way, you’ll see the outer slopes of the Ngorongoro Crater. Keep your eyes peeled for more wildlife – you’ll never know what may turn up! Around beautiful Lake Eyasi, you can meet the local tribes and learn about their hunting and gathering techniques. Then there’s stunning Lake Manyara National Park, home to many large groups of baboons and blue monkeys. Here there are also woodland, grassland, and swamps with over 350 species of birds.
If you’d like to do some hiking on your Tanzania adventure, the treks here won’t disappoint. Hiking Usambara never fails to impress, especially when you reach the peak of Mzoghoti. Along the way, guides will tell you all about the local flora and fauna. Then of course there’s hiking famous Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa at an incredible 19,341 feet above sea level. This multi-day trip will take you through many different terrains, including jungle, moorland, and alpine meadows.
