Perhaps the most famous once-in-a-lifetime experience that draws people to Tanzania is the chance to climb the mighty Kilimanjaro. Reaching the summit of the highest peak on the African continent has long been something which inspires intrepid explorers and you could soon add it to your growing list of achievements.
Kilimanjaro is, in fact, a dormant volcano and there are various different routes that you can take to reach the top. The carefully-designed tours we offer will take you up some of the lesser used paths, allowing you to soak up your surroundings and marvel at the curvature of the earth once you reach the pinnacle. If you don’t like the sound of climbing this world-famous mountain, perhaps cycling its foothills will present just the right kind of challenge you’re looking for.
Another iconic part of this country and something else you can experience on our authentic Tanzania tours is the Serengeti National Park. This wildlife region has been made famous by the annual migration which takes place here every year, the vast number of crocodiles that call it home and the indigenous Maasai Mara tribe who have farmed these lands for hundreds of years. Your cultural adventure will hopefully give you an insight into all of the above.
If you are looking for a slightly different animal adventure, though, there’s also the Ngorongoro Crater. This UNESCO World Heritage Site was created when a volcano exploded and collapsed in on itself and now represents one of the largest untouched areas of nature in the world. Game drives in the crater will give you the chance to see black rhinos, hippos, zebra and many other fascinating beasts.
Some of our tours also give you the opportunity to explore the spice island of Zanzibar. Located just off the coast of Tanzania, this relatively small strip of land has a great depth of culture and history.
