Blessed with the rooftop of Africa; Kilimanjaro and fascinating wildlife, Tanzania is a stunning yet simple country. The rich and vivid Tanzania has high-reaching mountains, central plateau and gorgeous coastline. To top it all, the diverse local experiences have captivated the hearts and minds of international travellers.
You can begin at the heart of the mainland; Dodoma – the capital of Tanzania. Check out the Lion Rock, which is also known as Simba hill and then head out to Dar es Salaam. Take a look at the earthquake-proof parliament building. Dar es Salaam, the fishing village of yesteryear has a heady blend of exotic beaches, chaotic markets, historic buildings and quick access to dream-pure African islands – Bongoyo and Mbudya. You can visit Arusha, which is the gateway to popular northern safari circuit. While you are there, visit the Masai market with some Tanzanian Shillings in your pocket to hunt and bargain for local wooden handicrafts.
The heart and soul of Tanzanian travel is of course the safaris which offers wildlife lovers, thrill seekers and adventurers a chance to see the “Big Five” (lion, elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard, and rhino), the most sought after animals in African safaris. You can take your pick from the many national parks. Alternatively, the crystal clear blue waves of the Tanzanian beaches are simply breath-taking.
Tanzanian cuisine has very much an Indian flavour. For breakfast bite on maandazi, isheti, kashata, kebabs and sambusa with fresh tea. The lunch and dinner menus will include wali, ugali and chapatti along with mshikaki, fish, pilau, okra, mchicha, green beans or kisamvu.
Tanzania is not an adventure capital, but it definitely has more than its fair share of the thrill for the adrenaline junkies. The beaches and islands see a lot of water sports action. The white sand and palm trees enhance the visual beauty of kayaking, surfing and snorkelling. You can go swimming with dolphins or explore the marine life as you dive beneath the waves. If you can step it up a notch, trek up Mount Kilimanjaro or the unconventional travellers can check out Mount Meru; the second highest peak in Tanzania.
Amidst such enthralling experiences things can still go wrong too.
