Adventure Holidays in Tanzania
Tanzania is a traveler’s dream. With Mount Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti Plain and Zanzibar in close proximity, your Tanzania adventure is sure to be the adventure of a lifetime. Tanzania boasts endless activities, making it an ideal holiday destination.
Tanzania offers a variety of safaris to suit your budget and your mood. Rough it on a camping trip in nature with just the bare necessities, or enjoy a pampered time in a luxury safari lodge. If you prefer to sleep in the open air, a fly camping safari where only a mosquito net separates you from the wild might be right up your alley. And if you don’t quite feel that a safari is right for you, you could stay wherever you’d prefer and try a few Tanzanian day tours to experience some of the things you might have on a full safari.
Take to the air
Enjoy a hot air balloon trip over the Serengeti National Park for a unique view of the flora and fauna. Or push yourself to your limit by climbing the infamous Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain peak in Africa.
The Tanzanian waters boast a fantastic selection of reefs and tropical fish, which can be viewed when diving off the mainland. But add to your maritime adventure by taking a diving trip from Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia, which is just off Tanzania’s shore. If you’re a beginner, take advantage of the diving courses offered by most hotels and lodges on the Tanzanian mainland.
Tanzania is a snorkeler’s dream with its beautiful reefs and Dar es Salaam’s scenic underwater viewings. And if you find yourself unprepared for a snorkeling adventure, snorkeling gear is readily available from lodges and diving shops in the area.
If you prefer to observe animals in their natural habitat without submerging yourself in water, you can always choose from a selection of river boating, canoeing or relaxed boat trips. Or perhaps you’d like to try your hand at deep-sea fishing in the Indian Ocean or any of the fresh water lakes.
Whether you take a self-drive tour, a day tour, or one of the longer package tours, you’re sure to find just the right combination of excitement and relaxation on an adventure of Tanzania.
