Things to Do in Tanzania
As Tanzania serves up the perfect quintessential safari, you wouldn’t want to visit without exploring its legendary safari parks.
From the continent’s most dramatic setting, offered from the rim of the Ngorongoro Crater, to the lesser-known gems of Tarangire and Lake Manyara National Park, you are bound to be impressed by Tanzania’s safari options.
However, Tanzania isn’t just a wildlife destination. Home to pristine white sands and world-class reefs, you can throw in a few nights along the Zanzibar Archipelago for the ideal mix of activity and relaxation or alternatively, spend a day or two soaking up the atmosphere in Tanzania's buzzing cities. For the well-seasoned traveler, a trek through western Tanzania’s chimpanzee country might turn your fantastic vacation into an adventure of a lifetime.
Tanzania Safari Parks
Tanzania safari options here can seem somewhat daunting – all of Tanzania’s safari parks have their own special appeal. The general rule is to choose whether you would like your Tanzania safari vacation in the North or South.
Tanzania Beach Vacations
Tanzania is home to some of Africa’s finest beach destinations including the Zanzibar Archipelago. Beautiful islands with world-class coral reefs and palm-fringed beaches stretch up and down Tanzania’s coast.
