With Zanzibar’s sparkling white sand and its brilliant turquoise water, you’ll be hard pressed to find more picturesque beaches anywhere else in the world. Its world-class resorts, tucked between swaying palms and soaked in the tropical sun, offer the optimal relaxing getaway.
Serengeti National Park
The long revered and wild Serengeti is one of those places that words cannot do justice. Sunrises and sunsets over the vast expanses of the park are unlike any other. Also, there is no better place on earth to see wildlife in action.
Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania was once a gargantuan volcano, perhaps taller than Mt. Kilimanjaro before its eruption. What’s left is the world’s largest intact volcanic crater, home to an abundance of wildlife and dramatic vista after dramatic vista.
One icy peak looms over the arid Tanzanian plains. Its undeniable power has inspired folklore and legends, novels and songs. Sitting at 19,340 feet (5,895 meters), it is the highest peak in Africa and the largest freestanding mountain in the world. Indeed, a trip to Kilimanjaro is not for the faint of heart.
Dar Es Salaam
Dar Es Salaam is Tanzania’s capital and largest city. Although seen by most during a brief stop in “Dar” before heading to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, do a safari in the Serengeti or relax on the pristine beaches of Zanzibar, it has much more to offer. From culture to beaches, shopping and food, there is something for everyone in this vibrant and laidback, East African city.
Arusha, a vibrant city in Tanzania of about half a million people, is the springboard for many unparalleled adventures. Within arms reach of many renowned national parks, it’s the perfect place to start any Tanzanian safari experience.
