Your Ultimate Tanzania Travel Guide - Explore The Tanzania

Tanzania has benefited from being eclipsed by its northern neighbor. Here, tourism has grown more subtly, and intelligently, with fewer low-cost packages and more individualized experiences. It’s more dependable and relaxed, and big enough to hide some corners nicely.

The Big Five, the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater, the Maasai, Zanzibar, and of course the Great Migration, which travels over the northern plains all year long, are just a few of the attractions on the Tanzania Travel Guide that make it anything but low-key.

Facts About Tanzania

1.   Home To Top National Parks

Tanzania is home to some of the world’s top national parks. One of the most well-known and adored parks is the Serengeti National Park, which is home to more than a million different species of large mammals.

It holds the distinction of being a World Heritage Site and a Seventh Wonder of the World. Wildebeest and zebras travel across the plains of the Serengeti during the Great Migration in search of new grasses.

Great buffalo herds, elephants, giraffes, leopards, impalas, gazelles, and the imperilled Eastern Black Rhinoceros can all be found there. The Selous Game Reserve is home to the biggest population of elephants, which are also found in Tanzania.

2.   The Great Wildebeest migration

Over 1.5 million wildebeest, zebra, and gazelle travel through the plains of Tanzania and Kenya during the Great Wildebeest Migration in search of pasture.

The crossing of the Mara River, where vast herds of animals make their way to the Masai Mara while dodging crocodiles and other dangers, is unquestionably the most thrilling aspect of the trip.

3.   Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro is a cone-shaped mountain covered with snow. This mountain is the tallest in Africa and the highest freestanding in the world, rising about 5,895 meters above sea level.

Nearly every type of ecological system, including those found in cultivated land, the rainforest, the alpine desert, and the arctic peak, can be found there.

You are more than welcome to take in the magnificence of this mountain from the ground, though those who are interested can walk up this dormant volcano and see amazing views.

4.   Delectable and Unique Cuisine

Tanzania is the place to go if you want to broaden your pallet. You may eat wild game in Tanzania, including crocodile, warthog, antelope, and even ostrich. Tilapia fish, pilau rice, and samosas are some of the other regional favourites.

Since spices are what really distinguish this cuisine, many traditional dishes heavily emphasize the use of coconut, cardamom, garlic, and turmeric. Additionally, it won’t be difficult for you to find fresh, locally-grown produce including fruits, veggies, nuts, and coffee.

5.   Tree Climbing Lions In Tarangire National Park

In addition to baobabs, Tarangire National Park is also home to lions that can scale trees. It is unknown why these lions have started climbing. It’s debatable whether they do it to catch a cool breeze or to get away from the tsetse flies.

Of course, it’s also possible that the lions are just admiring the scenery from above. Whatever their motivations, it is impressive to watch these lions cautiously traverse the tree limbs.

6.   Languages

The majority of people in Tanzania speak Swahili, the country’s official language, with English being primarily prevalent in larger towns, cities, and tourism destinations.

With four major African language groups—Bantu, Cushitic, Nilotic, and the less widely spoken Khoisan—the Republic of Tanzania has developed the highest linguistic diversity on the entire African continent.

Top Places To See In Tanzania


Tanzania offers a wide variety of lodging options, from opulent game lodges in game-rich national parks to historic buildings in Stone Town’s narrow streets, sprawling resorts and rustic beach huts lining Zanzibar’s beaches, and extending down-budget all the way to an abundance of mediocre mid-range hotels and the low-cost, scruffy guest houses.

The Best Time To Travel

Tanzania is at its driest from July through October, making those months the ideal time to travel there. The migration river crossings coincide with this, but because the grasses and bushes are at their least dense, all the parks offer fantastic wildlife sightings at this time.

What To Wear For Travel

Generally speaking, you should bring many layers for Tanzania, including t-shirts, long skirts, shorts, warm sweaters, trousers, and a waterproof jacket. You’ll also need binoculars for the wildlife game drives and clothes with neutral colors.


We hope that this Tanzania Travel Guide helps you learn more about the top places to visit in Tanzania. You can book a custom-made Tanzania holiday package with Gazelle Safaris Africa that will give you the opportunity to visit these intriguing sites and quench your thirst for adventure.
