Bordered by the Indian Ocean to the East and home to Africa’s tallest mountain, mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania is one of the important touristic attractions in East Africa. The island of Zanzibar, which is highly known for its white, beautiful beaches, is also part of Tanzania. A vacation in this country has much to offer to every tourist, regardless of whether they have a feel for adventure, sun bathing on the beach or exploring the Tanzania safaris. Whether you want to visit the famous Serengeti Park, the Ngorongoro Crater or see the elephants at Lake Manyara, there’s plenty for you to do if you decide to explore the safari in Tanzania for your next vacation.
Although Africa, and especially this country, are not what you’d call the most popular destinations that can be found on every listing from any travel agency, there are plenty of tour operators that can offer you both luxury and budget safari tours in Tanzania.
As exciting as the thought of exploring the Tanzania safaris may be, there are several things you have to take into account before booking such a tour. Apart from having to find a reliable and experience tour operator that is able to provide you not only with a unique, but also safe experience, you also have to choose what parts of Tanzania you want to visit, as the country is quite big and has much to offer, as already mentioned above. If you have time, you can choose a Southern circuit and visit Selous, Ruaha and Mikumi National Park. This type of adventure can last up to 8 days and you will be able to enjoy breath taking scenery, as well as impressive wild life, including crocodiles, hippos and lions. If you like trekking, there are several walking safari tours that you can choose, not to mention the ultimate trekking experience, climbing mount Kilimanjaro. Many tourists who went to Tanzania and climbed mount Kilimanjaro described it as the most rewarding experience of their lives. However, if walking through the wilderness of a safari in Tanzania for days in a row is too much for you, you can always choose to rest a couple of days on the amazing beaches of Zanzibar.
All things considered, Tanzania is one of the most beautiful countries in Africa and a unique and amazing destination for a holiday, offering a very different experience than the usual exotic or cultural destinations that the vast majority of tourists choose. Going for a safari in Tanzania as your vacation choice will definitely provide you with a once in a lifetime experience and a memorable holiday. However, it would be recommended to do a little research before hand and know what to expect, because, once again, this is a very different kind of holiday and you don’t want any unpleasant surprises. This is why finding a good tour operator in Tanzania or travel agency to provide you with a good package is important, so that you can make sure that every detail has been covered and your exploration adventure goes smoothly.
