Tanzania, an unforgettable country nestled in East Africa, is known for its epic plains and wealth of natural beauty and wildlife. You’ll see epic snow-topped mountain, expansive plains, active craters, gorgeous animals, and fall in love with the native cultures. Check this unforgettable vacation off your bucket list by organizing your own Tanzanian safari with African Safari Booking!
Flying to Tanzania is convenient. The two main airports are Kilimanjaro International and Julius Nyerere in Dar es salaam. Expect your journey to take 12- 24 hours due to a series connecting flights and the occasional long layover at the terminal. Make this long stretch of travel as comfortable as possible by keeping a carry-on bag with all your essentials. Joining an airline club to rest comfortably during long layovers is also recommended, as well as an upgrade to first-class seats on longer flights.
Tanzania boasts the largest game reserve and the tallest peak in Africa, which means your safari is destined to be of epic proportions. The national languages of Tanzania are Swahili and English. Your tour guides will know both languages and the local cultures to make your trip run smoothly and safely.
Kilimanjaro National Park - You can’t talk about Tanzania without mentioning Africa’s highest peak. Kilimanjaro National Park is an Unesco World Heritage site which protects many endangered species and is the home of Mount Kilimanjaro, which rises to 19,341 feet. This dormant volcano seems to have sprung out of nowhere since it stands alone in the middle of vast plains, surrounded by a gorgeous mountain forest.
Ngorongoro Crater - If you want to encounter another wonder of nature, you need to see this massive volcanic crater. Ngorongoro Crater is the largest unbroken caldera on the planet that hasn’t experienced flooding. It measures 12 miles wide and almost 2000 feet deep, culminating to be 115 square miles in volume. Magma still erupts from this crater, so it can be steamy and quite hot!
Serengeti National Park - This park is where a bulk of the Tanzanian safaris take place. Here you will have the best chance of seeing some rare and beautiful animals like the endangered black rhino! A guided safari will get you as close as you can to wildebeests, antelopes, and zebras while giving you a safe vantage point to spy on elephants, leopards, buffalos, and lions!
Local Cultures - Tanzania’s wealth also lies in its diverse cultures, delicious cuisine, and spectacular people. For example, your safari may include a visit to the last bushmen in Africa or the Masai-- just a couple of the people groups that have shaped Tanzania’s rich history.
Resort Accommodations - Foreign guests are encouraged to stay in vetted resorts where all their needs can be comfortably attended to. Your safari tour company will know the best places for you to rest between excursions to enhance your vacation’s value.
