Zanzibar Spice Tour

With an amazing diversity of landscapes and a wide variety of activities on offer, there is no shortage of great locations to travel to when you are visiting Tanzania. However, some destinations have unique things to offer that make them worth a special visit. In my opinion, the best places in Tanzania are as follows:

Zanzibar – The dazzling archipelago in the Indian Ocean is one of the most popular places to visit in Tanzania. Zanzibar’s sparkling white beaches, crystal clear water, and great variety of things to do make it a must for anyone visiting Tanzania. While there, you can snorkel or scuba dive, go on a spice plantation tour, visit Stone Town, swim with the dolphins, or just lie on the beach and soak up the sun.

Mount Kilimanjaro – Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is one of the most popular activities for adventure travel in Tanzania. The mountain is the highest peak in Africa, and visitors from all over the world rise to the challenge of climbing it. You can choose from one of six routes to the top, which range from intermediate to advanced.

Serengeti – One of the best places for safaris in Tanzania is the Serengeti. The annual wildebeest migration draws safari goers from every corner of the globe, and no trip to the country is complete without seeing the Big 5 in the national park.

Ngorongoro Crater – Another of Tanzania’s famous safari destinations, the Ngorongoro Crater is also one of the best places in Tanzania. The park is unique in that it is contained in a former volcanic crater, allowing visitors to view lions, cheetahs, zebras, elephants, giraffes, and other animals with a stunning circular backdrop.
