Superlatives are unavoidable. There is simply no other African country perhaps no other place in the world – that possesses a natural variety and largesse comparable to Tanzania. From the snow-capped majesty of Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain on earth, to the forested shores of Lake Tanganyika, the world’s longest, second-deepest and least-polluted freshwater body, this is a land of astonishing scenic beauty. As for the wildlife – well, Tanzania is a singularly compelling safari destination. In the south, you have Selous, the world’s largest game reserve. In the north, the sweeping plains of the Serengeti are justifiably the most famous park in Africa, while nearby Ngorongoro Crater is perhaps the most scenically dramatic. The remote west, meanwhile, is home to what Africa’s top chimpanzee tracking sites, namely Gombe Stream and Mahale Mountains. And while the eastern coastal belt is somewhat lacking in big game, compensation comes in the form of the forested Eastern Arc Mountains, home to dazzling diversity of birds, monkeys, chameleons and flowering plants found nowhere else in the world.

There is simply no other African country and perhaps no other place in the world – that possesses a natural variety and largesse comparable to Tanzania. Tanzania is a land of contrasts and majesty, Africa at its most wild and unexplored. There is the snow-capped summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and the sun-kissed beaches of Zanzibar, the vast herds of game grazing on the Serengeti plains and the slow volcanic eruption of Ol Donyo Lengai. With so much natural wealth, it’s no wonder that Tanzania has something for everyone.
When we talk about Tanzania Tourism, it is generally the famous Mt. Kilimanjaro, Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti or the spice Island of Zanzibar that comes into our minds, this is because perhaps other tourist destinations have remained unpretentious and have hardly been exposed to outside world. While Tanzania’s most famous and world-renowned destinations are the highlights that bring visitors to our country from around the globe, there’s much more to see and do than most people think — wonder, adventure, challenge, relaxation — and this list is really only the beginning
The Ngorongoro Crater is often called as the ‘Africa’s Eden’ and the ’8th Natural Wonder of the World’. It has as well being declared as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. A visit to the crater is a main draw card for tourists coming to Tanzania and a definite world-class attraction. The Ngorongoro Crater and the Ngorongoro Conservation Area are without a doubt some of the most beautiful parts of Tanzania, steeped in history and teeming with wildlife. Besides vehicle safaris to Ngorongoro Crater, Olduvai Gorge, and surrounding attractions, hiking treks through the Ngorongoro Conservation Area are becoming increasingly popular options. Either way you choose to visit, the Crater Highlands are an unforgettable part of the Tanzanian experience.
Serengeti National Park
Tanzania’s oldest and most popular national park, also a world heritage site and recently proclaimed as the most voted Natural Wonder of Africa, the Serengeti is famed for its annual migration, when some six million hooves pound the open plains, as more than 200,000 zebra and 300,000 Thomson’s gazelle join the wildebeest’s trek for fresh grazing. Yet even when the migration is quiet, the Serengeti offers arguably the most scintillating game-viewing in Africa: great herds of buffalo, smaller groups of elephants and giraffes, and thousands upon thousands of elands, topis, kongonis, impalas and Grant’s gazelles.
Zanzibar’s coastline offers some of the best beaches in the world, but sand and surf vary depending on what side of the island you’re on. On the east coast, waves break over coral reefs and sand bars offshore and low tide reveals small pools of starfish, small minnows, and anemones. Up north, ocean swimming is much less susceptible to the tides, and smooth beaches and white sand make for dazzling days in the sun. Many of the winding streets and high townhouses of old Stone Town remain unchanged and visitors can walk between the sultan’s palace, the House of Wonders, the Portuguese fort and gardens, the merchants’ houses, and the Turkish baths of the old city.
Tarangire National Park
Tarangire National Park is a beautiful and distinct location due to its sparse vegetation, strewn with baobab and acacia trees and has some of the highest population density of elephants anywhere in Tanzania. Tarangire is a popular stop for safari goers travelling through the northern circuit on their way to Ngorongoro and the Serengeti, and is located just a few hour drive from the town of Arusha. The park extends into two game controlled areas and the wildlife is allowed to move freely throughout.
Above the gently rolling hills and plateau of northern Tanzania rises the snowy peak of Mt. Kilimanjaro, with its slopes and glaciers shimmering above the rising clouds. It is a protected area located near the town of Moshi, carefully regulated for climbers to enjoy without leaving a trace of their presence. The mountain’s ecosystems are as varied and diverse as strikingly beautiful they are. On the lowland slopes, much of the mountain is farmland, with coffee, banana, cassava, and maize crops grown for subsistence and cash sale. Once inside the park, thick lowland forest covers the lower altitudes and breaks into alpine meadows once the air begins to thin. Near the peak, the landscape is harsh and barren, with ice and rocks the predominant features above a breathtaking African view.
