Tanzania in Africa is one of the greatest places to visit in the world, due to it’s vast array of exciting activities, scenery, and wildlife. You can do things here that you wouldn’t be able to do anywhere else, not to mention cross a whole lot of things off your bucket list! Here are 9 awesome things to do in Tanzania to get you started:
1.Go on An African Safari
Wouldn’t you love to see all kinds of wildebeests in their natural habitat? For that, you need to go on safari in Tanzania! You can see them in Kenya too, but Tanzania is so much better. You can see lions, elephants, buffalos, leopards and rhinos all grazing in their natural habitat.
2. Visit the National Parks
There are literally loads of beautiful parks to visit in Tanzania. Go on a bike ride to see buffalos and elephants walking around you. It’s really a sight to behold!
3. Go Scuba Diving
There are plenty of amazing diving opportunities in Tanzania, so don’t miss the opportunity to go scuba diving. Stone Town is the perfect place to start, plus it’s filled with plenty of history and culture to keep things interesting.
4. Visit the Beautiful Beaches
You can either visit the beautiful tourist beaches, sunbathe, swim, and have a great time, or visit one of the many unspoiled beaches. You’ll feel as if you’ve found your own secret hideaway!
5. Climb Mt Kilimanjaro
Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, referred to by some as ‘everyman’s Everest’. This is because although the mountain is the highest in Africa and the 4th highest in the world, it is fairly simple to climb. However, there are still risks involved when climbing Kilimanjaro (broken toes are popular) so make sure you’re aware of them before signing up.
6. Volunteer in the Community
There are plenty of volunteering opportunities in Tanzania, as the country is still developing. Sign up to one of these programs to give something back to the country and have a great time while doing so.
7. See the Stone Age Sites
There are some stone age sites in Tanzania that are almost 30,000 years old, but many people don’t realise it. Tanzania isn’t just about seeing the animals, see the ruins too!
8. See Lake Victoria
Lake Victoria is truly gorgeous and the largest lake in Africa. It’s also the 2nd largest freshwater lake in the whole world! You can even swim in it, so we recommend taking a relaxing weekend break here to swim and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
9. Ngorongoro Crater
Ngorongoro crater is the largest intact volcanic crater in the world, but is home to some of the largest amount of game in Africa. You’ll find lions, rhinos, elephants, leopards, and more here!
Tanzania is an amazing destination for many kinds of explorers; you can safari, see the animals, climb mountains, swim in beautiful lakes, and visit ancient ruins. Once you’re done with all that you can volunteer to help build the community!
