How To Make The Most Of Safaris In Tanzania


If you have been enchanted by watching exotic wildlife documentaries on your television, then you will be thrilled if you find yourself in the exact thriving wildlife where the documentaries are filmed deep in the jungles of Africa. Tanzania is one of the very best safari destinations in Africa with its Serengeti National Reserve and the Ngorongoro Crater being its major highlights. A luxury Tanzania safari is something that will stay with you long in the memory.

TAKE A BALLOON RIDE

In a country that is endowed with such spectacular sceneries and incredible wildlife an aerial view of all that goes on below can be an exhilarating experience. Imagine taking a hot air balloon ride across the savannah grasslands of the Serengeti National Park and enjoying all the action below you without interruptions as it would be if you were driving. You will be able to spot hippos, birds, foxes, antelopes and zebras lazily nibbling in the grassland. You also get to witness the vastness and natural beauty of this region from a different perspective.

WITNESS THE GREAT MIGRATION

The great annual migration is always a spectacle to behold as each year 1.5 million wildebeest, 300,000 zebras along with antelopes get ready and start their long an tumultuous trek from Tanzania’s Serengeti plains through to the Kenyan Masai Mara National Reserve in search of greener pastures and they cover a distance of 1800 miles. One of the greatest spot to witness this great phenomenon is at the Grumeti River where crocodiles lie in wait ready to make their kill as the herds cross over. It is not only the crossing of the rivers that is astonishing but the sight of millions of animals in stampede across the plains is wonderful experience. This attracts predators such as lions, leopards, hyenas and wild dogs giving esteemed tourists an excellent opportunity to catch unspoilt action.

CLIMB MOUNT KILIMANJARO

Mt Kilimanjaro is a snow peaked mountain and is Tanzania’s and Africa’s highest peak. It is the world’s tallest walk able mountain whose routes take you through five different climatic zones to the highest point in Africa. It will take you about six days to conquer this majestic mountain. The best thing about climbing this mountain is that you do not need to be an expert in mountain climbing or need special items or tools; just a fit and a healthy body and you will definitely conquer the mountain.

RELAX IN ZANZIBAR

After exploring the mainland Tanzania then it is time to take a break and relax on the island of Zanzibar which is an epitome of romantic beaches, spices, history and culture. In Zanzibar is the Stone Town which is an ancient Arab town built as a result of profits from slave and spice trade. It is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is one of the oldest Swahili towns in East Africa. You will also find fascinating beaches on the island where you can relax; Mnemba Island which is a part of the Zanzibar archipelago offers idyllic beaches for complete relaxation.
