The Popular Tourist Attractions of Tanzania

Tanzania has it all, from the high snowy summits of Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Meru to the palm-fringed Indian Ocean islands of Zanzibar and Pemba. Tanzania is home to many of Africa’s best and most popular tourist sites, with unequalled variety and quality. There are numerous tour companies in Tanzania who provide sight-seeing opportunities spread across the length and breadth of the country.

Climbing Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro’s name is unknown, however it is assumed to signify ‘Mountain of Light’ or ‘Mountain of Greatness.’ Nobody knows for sure, but Mount Kilimanjaro, at 5,895 meters/19,341 feet, is the highest peak on the African continent and the world’s tallest freestanding mountain. It is without a doubt one of the continent’s most stunning views, soaring majestically from the plains below in glorious seclusion. With its snow-capped peak dwarfing the distant rift valley, this volcano, which is almost on the equator, seems out of place.  Climbing Kilimanjaro tours is something that you cannot hardly afford to miss.It would be a mistake to visit Tanzania and not spend some time admiring this magnificent old mountain that forms Africa’s roof.

Ruaha National Park

Ruaha National Park, which covers 20,226 km2/7,809 mi2 and is one of East Africa’s largest national parks, is almost unknown outside of Tanzania. Nonetheless, being home to an estimated 10% of Africa’s remaining wild lion population, it deserves to be a highlight of any vacation to the country’s untamed south. Beautiful landscapes dotted with gigantic baobabs, elephants, plentiful plains species, and one of the only areas in Tanzania where you may view greater kudu are all solid reasons to include Ruaha on any intrepid safari enthusiast’s itinerary.

Serengeti National Park

The Serengeti National Park is the first and foremost, and it is one of Africa’s most visited protected places. This unique wildlife region encompasses 14,763km2/5,700mi2 and accounts for 50% of the Serengeti–Mara ecosystem. The most stunning terrain in all of Africa is dominated by broad savannah grasslands and studded with characteristic flattop acacias and Balanites trees. With 1.5 million wildebeest, 300,000 zebra, and 400,000 gazelles, it’s a wildlife show unlike any other. The Serengeti and its surrounding protected area provide a diverse range of safari accommodations and experiences to meet a wide range of budgets. Safari Packages Tanzania are an excellent opportunity to explore the beauty  of this place.


If the notion of hundreds of hotels and thousands of tourists does not appeal to you, a trip to Pemba, which is just across the border, is the way to go. The big brother island of Zanzibar has remained a prosperous fishing village with little tourism growth. There are only a few tourist hotels to select from, most of them are located in the island’s extreme north. Manta Resort’s underwater honeymoon room may be the most unique place you could choose to spend a night! The traveler’s choice is the simple Emerald Bay Resort in the south of the island. Daily boat rides to picture-perfect sandbanks in the midst of the ocean and delicious seafood lunches served on an open-air rooftop terrace
