Terrific Options For Your Tanzania Holiday
Tanzania has a lot going for it...
It has the great wildebeest migration in the Serengeti, which makes it one of the most filmed and best known safari destinations in the world.
It has the highest mountain in Africa, the highest free standing mountain in the world and the easiest of the world's 'Seven Summits' (the highest mountains on all seven continents) for people who are not experienced mountain climbers.
And it has some of the best beaches, best snorkelling, best diving and most fantastic beach resorts in the world.
It is also a wonderful country with warm and friendly people.
Also it combines well with safaris in Kenya or with trips to the Victoria Falls or even Cape Town. There is a wonderful luxury train that goes all the way from Dar es Salaam, the commercial hub and port city of Tanzania to Cape Town, via Victoria Falls.
There are various different ways to fly into Tanzania. There are airports at Arusha, which serves the northern circuit, at Dar es Salaam, which serves the south and west and on Zanzibar. There are no direct flights from the UK, but there are several good, competitive flight options to get to any of the airports with one stop in under 14 hours. A number of these fly via Qatar, so it is worth considering a stoop over there en route.
Once in Tanzania, the Safari options are fantastic and very varied, including
- Ngongoro Conservation area with the Ngorongoro Crater
- Lake Manyara
- Mahale Hills
There are also smaller parks and wilderness areas, like the Arusha National Park, Kilimanjaro, the Usambara Mountains and many others. Some of these are only accessible on camping trips or with very highly specialised adventure safari guides. If you are looking for anything that we have not listed, we can probably help you. Just contact us and we will find you what you want!
Zanzibar & Beach Holidays
'Beach' is shorthand for soaking up sun, swimming, snorkelling, diving, sailing, fishing ....
The Zanzibar archipelago is certainly one of the best destinations in the world for this, whether you are looking for a honeymoon, or a family holiday.
There are plenty of options from all inclusive packages at world renowned resorts to small family run guest houses.
And these beautiful spice islands have so much more to offer, from the fascinating and beautiful historic Stone Town, with its spice market, bazars, museums and restaurants, to Colobus monkeys and coconut crabs
If you are looking for an adventure with the ultimate goal of summiting the highest mountain in Africa, there are lots of ways to do it, some of which will test your climbing skills and experience, but others will require only fitness and plenty of preparation.
Wherever you go in Tanzania, whether you are on a safari, on Kilimanjaro, or even on Zanzibar, there are absolutely fantastic birding opportunities.
And of course if this is your passion, or if you you prefer to see the beauties of the country at the measured pace that goes hand in hand with spotting and identifying birds, there are truly brilliant options for specialist birding tours. The birds you are likely to see vary somewhat across the country, so if you are looking for something special it is worth planning carefully to make sure that you are in a good area to find it.
