When most people consider an African vacation, they tend to overlook the nation of Tanzania. Maybe that’s because the country doesn’t invest much money in tourism videos? Who knows? However, that situation is going to change during the coming years thanks to an extended period of peace and stability in the region. Indeed, Tanzania has welcomed thousands of new visitors during the last twelve months, and many people experience the trip of a lifetime. So, take a look at some of the attractions and work out if a Tanzanian dream holiday would seem appropriate next summer.
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is a wonder to behold, and animal lovers are guaranteed to enjoy the experience. For many generations, poachers in Tanzania almost wiped out hundreds of beautiful animal species. However, there is now a nationwide effort to protect the most vulnerable creatures. At the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, visitors can expect to find large populations of:
There are also huge herds of wildebeests and zebras in the area, and local tribes work hard to keep the animals safe from poachers.
The Serengeti National Park in northern Tanzania is world famous for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it’s the best place in the world to see the annual migrations of wildebeest and zebra. Indeed, many of the imagines of zebra herds in wildlife TV shows come from this location. Secondly, the national park is also home to beautiful black eagles and black rhinos that don’t reside anywhere else on the African continent. People who want to visit Serengeti National Park should:
- Make arrangements in advance
- Ensure they have a few days to spare
- Check how the activity affects their travel insurance
Thanda is a luxury private island tourists can reach by boat from Tanzania. It’s known as one of Africa’s best private party locations. There are a couple of villas available and a marine reserve in the surrounding waters. Lots of people go there every year to enjoy the weather and take part in scuba diving. It’s an upmarket place, but prices are reasonable. The waters in the area are clear and full of wildlife. There are species of fish that survive off the coast of Tanzania that struggle to exist anywhere else on the planet. So, be sure to catch a boat and check out Thanda Island during the trip.
Compared to some other African countries, Tanzania is a great place to visit for budget travel. Accommodation and activities aren’t going to break the bank. The flights are often the most expensive part of the venture. So, don’t make the mistake of heading over there for less than two weeks. Unfortunately, there isn’t much of a public transport system in place. However, guides will take travelers anywhere they want to go for a small fee. People just need to make sure they perform a lot of research before leaving home. That way, they shouldn’t overlook anything important. Enjoy!
