Tanzania

Home to four million animals, it's easy to see why Tanzania is popular amongst safari adventurers. Expect luxury hotels and retreats to rest your head with friendly locals and guides only too willing to show you the beauty of their country and the unspoilt African wilderness.
 
The Serengeti National Park echoes the iconic scenes from The Lion King, with hotels and lodges found right by the watering hole. Safari walks and game drives are available for those wanting to get up close and personal with the majestic African wildlife. With 12 other parks, 13 nature reserves and 38 protected areas, even if you aren’t near the Serengeti, you are sure to find stunning wildlife and views. The Ruaha National Park is just one of these, close to the city of Iringa, housing the largest elephant population in East Africa.
 
For those keen to explore and hike, Mount Kilamanjaro is a must. One of the most famous landmarks in the world, the 16,000-foot wonder is the highest free-standing mountain and is available to climb for all budding explorers. The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is another great adventuring spot, complete with a 600-metre deep crater and gorgeous African scenery to bask in.
 
All this exploring is bound to tire you out but thankfully Tanzania has great African restaurants and eateries offering international and traditional cuisine. The Akemi Revolving Restaurant is one of the top fine dining establishments with fantastic views sky high in the Dar es Salaam clouds. With a menu brimming with bright and colourful seafood dishes, salads and cocktails, tuck right in overlooking views of the stunning city.
 
Tanzania is a fantastic luxury holiday destination for safari and animal lovers wanting to get in touch with nature. A wide range of hotels and resorts can be found, with some offering tented accommodation and fire pit dining. An iconic trip complete with unforgettable views, you will be talking about it for years to come.

 
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
 
With Tanzania being one of the largest African countries, ensure you know how to get to your hotel. Unless centrally located near Kilamanjaro International Airport, you will probably have to catch a domestic flight to an airstrip before driving, especially if you are going on a safari expedition.

Tanzania In A Nutshell

Adventure Awaits
  • Quite simply, the Serengeti National Park is a must for all travellers. Found in the Mara and Simiyu region, there are countless animals to see with wildebeest being the most popular when they annually migrate. There are 1.5 million of them, so you are bound to see a herd if timed right. Also, keep your eyes peels for zebras, crocodiles, lions and tigers. In short, a stay here is an unforgettable trip and one which we definitely recommend.
     
  • Hike and climb one of the wonders of the world in Tanzania. Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa at approximately 16,100 feet. If you up for a challenge, grab your hiking boots and get walking.
     
  • The Ngorongoro Conservation Area is another must see for all animal lovers. For those wanting to explore, the area is vast, housing gorgeous African vistas and the famous Ngorongoro Crater measuring 600-metres deep and 20-kilometres across.
     
Soak Up The Culture
