Tanzania Trip Guide

Tanzania has benefited from just being overshadowed by its own northern neighbour. Tourism has increased more silently and considerately in this area, with very few low-priced packages and also more personalized experiences. It is far more secure and relaxed, and large enough just to maintain some corners concealed. However, its highlights are anything but low-key: Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater, the Maasai, Zanzibar, the Big Five, and, of course, the Great Migration, which also circles the northern plains year around. If you are planning to travel to Tanzania, there is availability of numerous short Tanzania safari tours, but you must select the safari tour which is available at a reasonable price.

When to visit Tanzania?

Tanzania is a generally secure nation, particularly in comparison to some of its neighbours. However, retaining personal items out of sight and remaining vigilant in large cities are prudent preventative measures.

Winter (June-September) seems to be the coolest season, with many guesthouses and lodges being extremely busy, especially in July and August. Although the main rainy season (March-May) isn’t inherently a terrible season to explore, a few isolated rural roads sometimes become impermeable.

The Great Migration throughout the Serengeti is an equitably constant rotation, however the most dramatic river crossings occur in June or July – though they are unpredictable.

How to get around in Tanzania?

Domestic flights connect Dar es Salaam to Kilimanjaro and several other airports; comparatively tiny airlines serve game parks, small towns, and Zanzibar. From Dar es Salaam, ferries cross the larger lakes and serve Zanzibar and Pemba.

Most of Tanzania is served by buses, that also vary greatly in terms of comfort, roadworthiness, and overpopulation. Minibuses and dalla-dallas (even smaller buses) seem to be more crowded and operate on relatively short neighbourhood streets.

The train service is slow and inefficient, with the Tazara line south-west from Dar es Salaam to the Zambian border and the Central line north-west through the use of Dodoma to Mwanza or Kigoma. If you want to enjoy Tanzania, you must go for a luxury Tanzania Safari.

  • Tanzania Accommodation-Camping in Tanzania can range from simple open areas in national parks to lavish canopied cottages priced up to £100 per night. Likewise, guesthouses and apartments vary from low flophouses to high-end resorts.

    In general, you get what you pay for, although a few mid-range hotels provide great value. Except if you intend to stay up all night, ignore guesthouses with bars.
  • Tanzania Food and drinks-Tanzania isn’t well-known for its fine dining. Meals are centered on ugali (thick maize meal mash) with a sauce that includes meat, fish, and/or vegetables. Mishikaki (kebabs) and nyama choma (grilled meat) are also prevalent. Fresh fish is plentiful along the coast and near lakes, and rice is commonly consumed, sometimes with plantain.

    Cold Kilimanjaro and Safari beers also seem to be delicious.

Best places to visit in Tanzania

There are various places to visit in Tanzania but don’t forget to select the best Tanzania safari tours.

  • Zanzibar- Zanzibar, also widely recognized as Unguja, encompasses the appearance of the “unusual,” with its appealing blend of Middle Eastern, Indian, and Swahili culture and food, spice tours, and dhows blown along by the Tradewinds. Start exploring the UNESCO-listed Stone Town’s alleyways before retreating to a peaceful resort placed in front of white sand and the deep blue of the Indian Ocean.
  • Serengeti National Park- The Serengeti National Park is an immense treeless plain where birds and animals live or pass through in the quest for new grasslands. It is best known for the yearly wildebeest migration, but you could also see the Big Five and nearly 500 bird species on the Serengeti. The Serengeti, Tanzania’s second-largest national park, continues to attract tens of thousands of tourists every year. The months of June to September are ideal for wildlife perceiving in Serengeti National Park. In May or early June, over 1.5 million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of zebras and gazelle make their yearly migration. This migration has been one of nature’s greatest remarkable spectacles and a major attraction for many travellers.
  • Olduvai Gorge- The Olduvai Gorge is another attraction in the conservation area. This significant archaeological site has yielded primitive skull and bone remnants that have provided essential information regarding initial humanity. The Olduvai Gorge seems to be an archaeological site located on a sequence of fault lines where centuries of erosion have disclosed fossils and relics of early humanity. In Olduvai Gorge, tools and hunting weapons dating from 1 to 1.5 million years ago too were revealed.
  • Lake Manyara National Park- The landscape of Lake Manyara National Park includes forest, woodland, pastures, and wetlands. Water covers two-thirds of the park, and Lake Manyara, at certain times of year, is home to a large number of flamingos as well as other varied bird life. Lake Manyara Park’s main attraction is its big population of elephants, tree-climbing lions, and hippos, which can be seen at a far more closer distance than other parks. This park also has the world’s greatest proportion of baboons. The most activities offered in Lake Manyara National Park are native animals drives, canoeing (when the water levels are high enough), mountain biking paths, and bird watching.

Work With The Locals

Afrikan Adventure is a company dedicated to helping the average person experience adventure and excitement, whether this may be through climbing Kilimanjaro or safaris in the vast Savannahs of Serengeti and the crater of Ngorongoro. The local community in Tanzania is heavily involved in helping companies like ours flourish. They take on the roles of guides, porters and chefs to help you achieve your adventurous goals. For this reason, we strongly believe in giving back to them, by offering them employment to support themselves as well as their families. Since their jobs depend on the right seasons to climb mountains or go on safaris, most of them do not have a consistent source of income throughout the year.

This year, due to the current situation with the pandemic, tourism has seen a sharp decline in Tanzania. This is not only affecting the economy of the country but also the livelihoods of countless others whose jobs are dependent on tourism. Afrikan Adventure would greatly appreciate any donation you could make to help us support the guides, porters, chefs and others involved in making your experience with us memorable. For those who have to think about themselves and their family each year, your donation will not only feed their families for another season, it will also keep their motivation and hopes high for the coming season, so they can help you feel on top of the world (or at least to the roof of Africa!)
