Things to Do in Tanzania
Let your imagination run wild with the possibility of Tanzania’s limitless experiences. From witnessing the great wildebeest migration as you feel and hear the earth thunder from hundreds of thousands of hooves across the Serengeti, to days of lazy relaxation on the pristine white beaches of Zanzibar and surrounding islands, there is an incredible variety of things to do in Tanzania.
Descend over 600 meters on a day-long game drive into the Ngorongoro Crater and be amazed at the way the predatory hierarchy has adapted to the unique ecosystem, or feel your heart pounding as you silently walk up to big game in Tarangire National Park. Walk alongside traditional Maasai warriors and learn first-hand how your tourism dollar is helping to alleviate the human-wildlife conflict. For a different perspective, take to the skies in a hot air balloon over the seemingly endless grasslands of the Serengeti. For more off-the-beaten path experiences, venture west and south, to trek chimps in the Mahale Mountains, or sleep out under the stars in a dry riverbed of the massive Selous, Africa’s largest game reserve. Take to the white sand beaches and turquoise waters of the coast for world class kite surfing, kayaking, diving, and at the right time of year, whale watching. Or simply relax and reflect on your incredible safari. Our Tanzania specialists will ensure your tailor-made holiday is filled with the right type and the right amount of local and curated experiences to give you the trip of a lifetime.
