What To Do

Tanzania is widely recognised as one of the great destinations for safaris. It is home to an enormous population of wildlife all of which can be viewed at close quarters in its expansive national parks and reserves, and you can read more about what is on offer on our web pages here.

In addition, safaris can be combined with visiting some of the country's famous landmarks including Mount Kilimanjaro, Ngorongoro Crater and the Olduvai Gorge, or for a complete change of scene, Tanzania's neighbouring islands have plenty to offer.

If your flight takes you to Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania's capital city you may like to take the opportunity to spend some time here and enjoy the bustling bazaars, fruit, vegetable and fish markets and stalls offering an array of handicrafts. As Dar Es Salaam is also on the coast, you are also not too far away from one of the many beach resorts.

Many people take the opportunity to extend their trip to one of the islands just off the coast of Tanzania. Some of the safari air strips offer direct services, others fly via Dar Es Salaam or Arusha. The biggest island, Zanzibar, is only a 15 minute flight from Dar Es Salaam, with the capital Stone Town offering an eclectic mix of architecture that is best viewed on foot, and a visit to one of the many spice farms makes a nice excursion. The beach resorts, ranging from rustic to luxurious, tend to be concentrated on the west coast. For those happy to travel a little further afield, the islands of Pemba and Mafia have a unique ambience.

Pemba is reputed to offer some of the best diving in the world, although strong currents mean it is generally more suitable for experienced divers. For those who like to snorkel, there are also plenty of places where this can be enjoyed.

Mafia Island is about a 20 minute flight from Dar Es Salaam and was Tanzania's first Marine Park, with great diving and fishing opportunities.
