For people who are outdoorsy and want their holidays to be filled with excitement and adventure, Tanzania is the ultimate goal. Others want to spend the entire holiday on a beach, unwinding and sunbathing. If you consider yourself to be the former one then keep reading this text because we are going to provide you with a list of things you can do while in Tanzania and have the time of your life.
Naturally, the first thing that we have to mention is safari. One cannot go to Tanzania and not go on a safari. Two most famous safari destinations – The Serengeti National Park and Ngorongoro Conversation Area, is located in Tanzania.
What makes the Serengeti even more iconic is the migration of wildebeests and zebras which happens every year. Understandably, both of these have been named UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, and there are many tours you can go on to explore these breath-taking locations. Another place you should not miss when it comes to safari is the Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania. If you want to learn more about these tours and see East African wild dog, Masai giraffe, Nile crocodile, African bush elephant, Plains zebra, and so on, visit this website.
With its height of 5892 meters above the sea level, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak in Africa. Climbing this peak has become one of the most popular tourist attractions, and do not fool yourself, not everyone can do it. No matter what your climbing abilities are, there are many tours with professional guides and climbers and you just have to find the best one for you. Just don’t go on this adventure if you haven’t been working out lately. Even though it sounds impossible for many people, there is nothing that can come in comparison with that feeling that will overwhelm you when you finally reach the Kibo.
If you want to see chimpanzees in their natural habitat, then you should include The Mahale Mountains National Park on your list of place to visit. These forests are the home of more than 1000 chimpanzees which makes this the largest population in the whole world. Interestingly, the only way to explore this park is by foot, and if you ask us, that just makes it even more special. Besides chimpanzees, here you will encounter lions and 200 types of birds.
In 2008, Ruaha National Park became the largest national park in Tanzania and also entire East Africa. It got his name from Great Ruaha River which flows nearby. Unlike The Mahale Mountains National Park, this one can be explored by car from Iringa and there are also two airstrips. If you opt for exploring this natural beauty, you will have a chance to see African buffalo, African leopard and wild dog, hippopotamus, giraffe, as well as East African cheetah and lion, etc. There is also a wide selection of the accommodation near or in the park including hotels, campsites, cottages, and so on.
To sum up, as you can see, even though we have only mentioned some, there are many wonderful sites you can include in your vacation tour. Research all of them and make your holiday unforgettable.
