There truly is something for every king of tourists in Tanzania. From glorious beaches, incredible culture and food and luxurious accommodation to incredible game reserves. Here are some of the reasons why you should visit Tanzania
The Great Migration
Africa is full of beautiful wildlife experiences but one of the most important you have to witness is the Great Migration. This is a once in a lifetime experience and on the bucket list of a lot of tourists that want to visit Africa. No one or nothing can surpass this incredible spectacle of million wildebeest crossing the plains of Serengeti to search for fresh grass while fighting against predators and crossing dangerous rivers.
Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, located in North Easter Tanzania and can even be seen from Kenya. The mountain represents a powerful force for the local Chagga people and all those who live around the mountain, providing an endless source of pure spring waters and rich volcanic soils. About 80,000 people climb Kilimanjaro every year so it is not the most unreachable mountain, nor is it the most difficult, however, it is still one amazing sight to behold and is highly recommend for anyone who is interested in mountaineering.
What better way to complete the safari adventure through Tanzania than to spend some relaxing time in Zanzibar on one of the amazing white sand beaches.
