Tanzania Vacation

Tanzania Travel Information

Travel to Tanzania

Feel the thrill of seeing lions on rocky kopjes and elephants in herds walking past trees on trips to Tanzania. A Tanzania travel experience is all about experiencing wildlife at close quarters and getting familiar with the stunning landscape that has so much to offer.

Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Tarangire and Manyara

Spot lions, leopards and other wild cats in abundance along with hyenas, zebras, giraffes, elephants, hippos, crocodiles, ostriches and vultures in the open plains at Serengeti. You can even take a hot air balloon ride over the park. Ngorongoro is a fascinating place to view wildlife similar to Serengeti within the crater walls. Safaris take you into the open grasslands in the crater to see the animals including the rare black rhino. Another wildlife haven, the Tarangire National Park has a vivid landscape and a huge elephant population. At Lake Manyara National Park, the lake covers a large portion of the landscape during the wet season. Baboons, gazelles, dik dik antelope, blue monkeys, lions, leopards and bird species are found here.

Selous, Ruaha, Udzungwa and Mikumi

In the grasslands and woodlands of Selous Game Reserve, wildlife is aplenty. Picturesque areas around the Rufiji River are a popular attraction. The animal inhabitants include lions, rhinos, hippos, elephants, zebras, wild dogs and much more. At Ruaha, Tanzania’s largest national park, you can spot a diverse range of animals while Udzungwa Mountains National Park is rich in flora and fauna especially primates. You can see elephants, giraffes, monkeys, zebras, hippos and other animals at Mikumi National Park.

Trek to Mount Kilimanjaro

One of the most iconic sights on a trip to Tanzania is Mount Kilimanjaro – a dormant volcano. Treks to the top of the mountain that is also covered with forests are popular with tourists. It usually takes five to ten days to reach the summit. Two of the most popular routes that offer stunning vistas are Machame route and Lemosho route. On Mount Kilimanjaro treks, you will climb in the daytime and head to camps at night for some sleep. You will feel on top of the world once you conquer the summit.

Zanzibar – Beaches and Culture

Head to the beaches of Zanzibar on Tanzania travel packages to lounge on the remarkable beaches along the Indian Ocean coastline. Relax, see local life, snorkel, swim with dolphins or enjoy the sunshine at this island paradise. You can also discover the attractions at Stone Town–a UNESCO World Heritage Site–that has diverse cultural influences.

Located in East Africa, Tanzania is a paradise for wildlife enthusiasts. Its varied landscape includes savannahs and woodlands, mountains such as Kilimanjaro, a section of Lake Victoria–Africa’s largest lake, and a coastline along the Indian Ocean. The local people include tribes such as the Maasai who inhabit areas along some of the national parks in northern Tanzania.

National Parks and Wildlife

A visit to Tanzania’s national parks is a thrilling experience. Parks in the northern part including Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Manyara and Tarangire are popular with tourists. The Serengeti National Park has an astounding variety of wildlife that you can see on a Tanzania holiday package. In fact, on a safari, you may spot the Big Five – the African bush elephant, East African lion, African leopard, Eastern black rhinoceros, and the African buffalo.

Additionally, Tanzania private tours also take you to the parks and reserves in the south such as Selous, Ruaha, Udzungwa and Mikumi that have their own remarkable flora and fauna.

Food and Culture of Tanzania

Typically carbohydrate based, the cornmeal porridge called Ugali is a staple dish in the Tanzanian diet. Tanzanian food also boasts many luxurious spicy dishes, particularly around the coastal regions. A welcome addition to fish and rice meals is the common use of coconut milk, providing sensuous flavors. Tanzanian food also consists of a lot of beans, sorghum, millet and plantain. Groundnuts are an important part of the diet in Tanzania too. With 128 languages spoken throughout Tanzania and many tribes, it is wonderful to get lost in and absorb the diversity of Tanzanian culture. Enjoy the splendid and meticulous arts and crafts and marvel at the array of glamorous clothing within tribes.

Tanzania Reviews Of Our Travellers

Kathy Jean N., October 2019

My 17 year old niece and I had an unforgettable African experience and adventure of a lifetime this summer! One that words truly cannot describe. Jonas of Tansafari Tours was so friendly, personable, informative, helpful and patient guiding us through the process of planning a trip that included everything my niece and I wanted to experience. Whenever I contacted him via e-mails or phone calls, he always responded in a timely manner. He was very flexible in making any changes, and he truly shared in our excitement and enthusiasm when planning our itinerary. I could tell that Jonas is passionate about his country and sharing that with others. I have and will continue to highly recommend Jonas and his travel agency to family and friends!

Our trip included two weeks of travel in Tanzania and Zanzibar. We wanted some beach time in Zanzibar after ALL our adventures in Tanzania. It was a perfect way to end a perfect trip!

In Tanzania we traveled with our guide, Bariki, and had so many laughs and so much fun! He was so passionate, knowledgeable, personable, and fun! We were fortunate to experience the beauty of Africa while traveling throughout Tanzania and while on safari in Tarangire National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, and the Serengeti. The beauty is breathtaking and the close-up encounters with all the amazing animals in their natural habitat is indescribable! In addition to our safari, we were able to interact and engage with the warm and generous people of Africa. We visited the Tengeru Cultural Project where my neice, Bariki, myself and the locals spent time sharing stories, hiking to a coffee farm, and engaging in the grinding and roasting of coffee beans, weaving handmade furniture and canoeing. We visited an orphanage, a Maasai Village, a Maasai childrens' clay hut classroom, the Hadazbe tribe, and Datoga tribe. Withe these tribes we had hands-on experiences in starting fire, using a bow and arrow, playing hand-made instruments, grinding corn with a large stone, and trying to to keep up with their dancing! It was exciting to go off the beaten path and experience and learn more about the culture of these incredible people. We are so grateful for their generosity in allowing us to spend time with them and get a personal glimpse of their lives.

After an unforgettable time in Tanzania, my niece and I flew to Zanzibar. We stayed in Nungwi in a beachfront hotel. Once again, the people were so warm and welcoming. We totally enjoyed some relaxation spending time on the beach and in the ocean. Zanzibar is known as the Spice Island, so we made sure to do a tour of a spice plantation. We also toured the historical town of Stone Town. I recommend doing both. The last night in Zanzibar, we did a sunset boat ride which as amazing. There were only 8 of us on the boat (including the crew of 2), and you could climb a ladder up to a little upper deck. My niece and I along with 2 others opted to do that. The sunset was amazing! It was a great way to say goodbye to Zanzibar!

My niece and I will never forget our African experience! As I said, words cannot come close to describing what an amazing time we had. We will forever hold Jonas and Bariki in our hearts and be grateful to them for making our trip so SPECIAL!!

With love, Kathy & Malia

Kenya/Tanzania Oct 2019 (from Canada)
We travelled to Kenya/Tanzania in Oct 2019. Planning through Soul of Tanzania was a breeze! Lidia was our contact person and extremely helpful. Her responses were prompt and professional. Very flexible with changes to the itinerary or accommodations. And she kept me informed at every step along the way which was very appreciated. Lidia even called to check on us a couple times along our route to ensure things were going well.
Kenya
The Kenya portion of our trip was provided by Spirit of Kenya.
The vehicle was a van (vs a safari jeep) with a pop up roof. The van was a bit older, but still got the job done.
Raphael was our guide. There were a lot of times we were unable to hear everything he was telling us – mostly because of the noise in the van.
Our accommodations were as expected, permanent tented sites. Clean and comfortable. Meals provided on the site were good. The lunches provided were not as expected. We anticipated a warm lunch as was described through Soul of Tanzania. However what was received were box lunches with a sandwich, piece of chicken and piece of fruit. Good, but a little disappointing.
Tanzania
Our safari vehicle in Tanzania was clean and comfortable. It was a safari jeep with a pop up roof.
Elinasi was our guide. He was great! So much information was given to us about the animals and birds that we saw. Lots of interesting facts. Elinasi was very clear with any decisions we needed to make along the way and strived to make our tour exactly what we were looking for…. Including trying to beat our record of 20 lions in a day and finding a couple leopards in a tree for me! (that happened twice!)
The lunches provided were good. It was nice to have the table set with a cloth and dishes and to have a warm meal while others around were having boxed sandwich meals.
Accommodations were what was anticipated (some were better). Permanent tented sites, good meals and some wildlife during the night. Perfect!
Overall, I would recommend Soul of Tanzania to anyone looking for ease of planning and a wonderful safari experience. Be sure to ask for Lidia in the office and Elinasi as your guide.

It was one of the memorable experience we had in Tanzania and Serengeti. Jonas and his local agency were very professional and everything was according to the itinerary. The guide was very knowledgeable and courteous.
In short, we loved the beautiful country of Tanzania and all the national parks.

Devetzaki O., September 2019

A 5-day trip to the national parks near Arusha. Everything was very well organized and all the tour guides and their services were excellent.

Carol Sue A., August 2019

A great personalized program by Jonas who went over the top to ensure that the trip was one to be remembered!
I have just returned from a 13-day safari through Tanzania and Kenya organized by Jonas, local expert in Tanzania. The trip was superb, one of the best I have ever taken. Jonas and his team were in close contact with me during the entire planning phase and made sure that my needs and wishes as a single traveler were fully satisfied. Trip.me is also to be recommended for its competence in making all financial transactions between trip.me and myself clear and easy to process.
The safari itself was excellent, not only because of the beauty and variety of the natural habitat but thanks to the professional and knowledgeable driver/guide. His knowledge of the terrain and sharp eye meant that I had a constant visual feast of the natural wonders of the Tanzanian northern plains. The cross-over to the Kenyan side for an additional four days went without a problem and allowed me to extend my visit further into the Masai Mara.
Overall, I can only compliment trip.me, and in particular Jonas and his staff, for the excellent preparation and organization of the trip and the warm and personalized service that they provided. It is both the beauty of the country and the warm personalized reception I received from Jonas that have convinced me to return to the country in the future.
