Tanzania Attractions & Landmarks Guide

A popular Tanzanian saying suggests that “a patient person eats ripe fruit.” Well, now is the time to a take a bite by embarking on the Tanzania vacation package of your dreams. This nation’s idyllic location, fronting the placid waters of the Indian Ocean, combines all the best of East Africa.

Are you game to visit some of the top wildlife reserves on the entire continent, lounge on white-sand beaches ripe for catching rays, or explore that mountain of lore, Kilimanjaro -- its trio of snow-capped volcanic cones etching the sky as the highest point in Africa? You’ve undoubtedly heard of Serengeti, Zanzibar and Kilimanjaro; now it’s time to see these magical places on the best Tanzania tours imaginable.

Landscapes and Wildlife

Tanzania’s borders harbor a diverse landscape and abundant wildlife. Consider Lake Manyara, where in the wet season more than 300 species of migratory birds hang out, and in-the-pink flamingos number in the thousands. In the dry season, mud flats offer ideal opportunities to view elephants, hippos, wildebeest and giraffes. Many Tanzania package tours feature stays in Lake Manyara wildlife lodges. And be sure to look up: among the main local attractions are tree-climbing lions.

The island of Zanzibar, once an integral part of the British Empire, is now a veritable melting pot of African, Arabian and Indian influences. This semi-autonomous region of Tanzania sports beach resorts perfect for a romantic Africa getaway, while its charming Stone Town -- a maze of cobblestone alleyways and vibrant bazaars -- offers an authentic taste of the Swahili Coast.

A Volcano and a Crater

Mount Kilimanjaro may now be an inactive volcano, but activities abound for trekkers taking to its slopes. Its snow-capped peak gracefully sets the backdrop for the savannah and its spectacular wildlife far below. In his story “The Snows of Kilimanjaro,” Ernest Hemingway wrote: “There, ahead, all he could see, as wide as all the world, great, high, and unbelievably white in the sun, was the square top of Kilimanjaro. And then he knew that there was where he was going.” That could be you!

Tough to pronounce, but worth the effort to visit, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area is another volcanic wonder. Think of this UNESCO World Heritage Site as a reverse Kilimanjaro: Ngorongoro’s volcano blew up, collapsed and formed an immense crater. This region is now home to abundant wildlife, and the local Maasai tribe, who you may see dressed in their signature orange robes, grazing their cattle at the crater.

The Serengeti

Another UNESCO World Heritage Site, Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park, is renowned for the annual migration of wildebeest and zebras amid its grassland plains and savannah, offering up countless National Geographic moments. Cameras are mandatory here – keep them primed for that perfect photo op.

These are just some of the highlights of a Tanzania tour, which will show you sights and offer you experiences you could have only imagined. Isn’t it time to book one on Stride now?
