Besides being home to the world-famous Kilimanjaro, Tanzania is one of Africa’s most popular safari destinations.
Should you desire proper relaxation, adventure or safari, take a trip to Tanzania and be sure to visit these five places.
Kilimanjaro is the world’s highest mountain and a pride of Africa.
The mountain has been the subject of many scientific studies because of its shrinking glaciers and disappearing ice fields.
Kilimanjaro is approximately 16,732 feet (5,100 meters), making it the tallest free-standing mountain in the world.
75,000 people climb the mountain every year, but not many make it to the summit.
Located 15 miles off the coast of Tanzania, Zanzibar is one of the Indian Ocean islands.
The breathtaking island is home to turquoise-blue water, whitewashed coral rag houses, white sandy beaches, and shallow sandbars.
Visitors can also get to explore the world heritage site of Stone Town, a historic trade center with Swahili and Islamic influences.
Serengeti National Park is best known for its annual wildlife migration of wildebeest and zebra.
It is among the famous parks in Africa. It is Tanzania’s oldest park and a Unesco world heritage site.
Asides the wildlife, other attractions of Serengeti include endless plains and hot air balloon safaris.
The Selous Game Reserve, located in the southern part of Tanzania, is the largest game reserve in Africa and the second largest conservation area on the continent.
It is said to be four times bigger than the Serengeti.
Some of its attractions are hot volcanic springs, sporadic lakes and channels, large herds of elephants, over 350 species of birds and reptiles, and 2000 plants species.
The reserve also has a vast range of game which include brindled gnu, Nyasaland gnu, sable antelope, eland, greater kudu, waterbuck, hartebeest, zebras, giraffe, reedbuck, warthog, spotted hyena, lion, leopard, hunting dog, and buffalos.
Also known as ‘The Green Island’, the Pemba Island is part of Tanzania’s Zanzibar Archipelago.
It’s known for its lush, green hills and clove plantations.
The Pemba Channel, with its coral reefs and abundant marine life, separates the island from mainland Tanzania.
Pemba Island is the ideal getaway destination.
