  7. Things To Do in...


Tanzania is one of our favorite countries in all of Africa. People welcome you with open arms yelling and everyone always seems to have a huge smile on their face. The landscape is lush and beautiful, the energy is vibrant and exciting and the wildlife is second to none.

The activities and destination are top notches and these are just but a few of the exciting top things to do in Tanzania

Climb Mount Kilimanjaro

My number one pick for adventure in Tanzania is Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. Climbing to the roof of the tallest Mountain in Africa is quite an adventure.

You will be reaching the summit of one of the most famous climbs on earth.

At 5895 meters, it is a feat to be proud of when you reach the summit.

Don’t miss this trek of a lifetime.

Safari in The Serengeti National Park

Serengeti National Park is Africa’s number one wildlife destination. 

Every year over a million wildebeest migrate over its great plains alongside thousands of the other herbivores of Africa like the gazelle and zebra to the Kenyan Maasai Mara

Don’t limit yourself to migration season only though. 

Visiting the Serengeti offers amazing wildlife viewing year-round as you watch lions, cheetahs, elephants, and leopards living in their natural habitats on the vast African plains.

Scuba Dive in Zanzibar

No trip is complete without island time on Zanzibar beaches which is paradise on earth.

This spice island is not only beautiful above its turquoise water with its sandy white beaches, but it is also beautiful below.

The underwater is also very beautiful and a way to keep your body moisturized in the cool Indian ocean water.

Be sure to interact with some of the underwater species found below the Zanzibar Island waters.

Zanzibar is considered to have the best diving on the entire east coast of Africa.

Marvel At the Great Rift Valley

The Great Rift Valley spans from Lebanon through Tanzania and ends in Mozambique.

It is a beautiful vast site in Tanzania housing the Ngorongoro crater and the Serengeti.

Also blessed with so many natural features that came along with the earth’s crust movement.

Staying at the Kilimanjaro Lodge for the very best view of this massive valley you’ll have anywhere.

Cycle The Country

If you want an epic adventure. Take a ride from Arusha in the north to Mbeya in the south. See everything that Tanzania has to offer from the seat of a bicycle. 

Ride through coffee plantations and lush countryside.

This is the Africa you have always dreamed of. 

Epic climbs through tropical forests, switching between paved roads and bumpy trails will challenge and excite you. 

Make your way to the Capital of the country Dodoma.

See a Tanzania that other travelers never will and get to know the people of Tanzania up close and personal as you stop for a coke on the side of a highway.

Visit the Ngorongoro Crater

It’s the largest unbroken caldera in the world that is not submerged in water and it houses 45,000 animals living in harmony.

Visiting the Ngorongoro crater is a beautiful experience watching wildlife within the volcano.

Massive herds of wildebeest, zebras, and elephants roam the landscape and you will come across a lion or two and if you are lucky, a rhino may also cross your path.


Be sure to find the best accommodations and also taste the best of Swahili delicacies in this amazing country.

You can also leave having known a few Swahili words to share with family and friends by just interacting
