TANZANIA OVERVIEW

Why Travel To Tanzania

Tanzania is home to a great diversity of wildlife, fascinating cultures and natural, scenic beauty. It’s a dream destination from the classic, sweeping savannah of the Serengeti to the flamingo-lined shores of Lake Manyara, world wonder Ngorongoro Crater and Mount Kilimanjaro (Africa’s highest mountain).

It also offers bucket-list experiences that like chimpanzee trekking in the rainforests of Mahale and Gombe, and game viewing in the far-flung wildernesses of Katavi, Ruaha and Selous.

The Wildlife of Tanzania
A Tanzania wildlife holiday is hard to beat with great opportunities to view the Big Five as they roam the savannah plains! The principal northern and southern wildlife regions cover a vast range of destinations, each of which has its own unique wildlife and ecosystems. 

Where to go

Tanzania is an East African country known for its vast wilderness areas. They include the plains of Serengeti National Park, a safari mecca populated by the “big five” game (elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo, rhino), and Kilimanjaro National Park, home to Africa’s highest mountain. Offshore lie the tropical islands of Zanzibar, with Arabic influences, and Mafia, with a marine park home to whale sharks and coral reefs.

Tanzania is a big country, and the main safari destinations can be split into the north (The Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater) or the south (The Selous and Ruaha).

Wildlife Safaris

The Northern Circuit
The northern tourism circuit is by far the most popular safari circuit in Tanzania, comprising most of the must-see destinations in the country. If you’re a first-time visitor to Tanzania, this is where you want to be. The circuit starts in Arusha and includes, from east to west: Arusha National Park at the foot of Mount Meru, Tarangire, Lake Manyara at the bottom of the Gregory Rift, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (which includes the Ngorongoro caldera, the Empakaai Crater and the southern Serengeti plains of Lake Ndutu), and the Serengeti National Park.

The Southern Circuit
The south of Tanzania is mostly a destination for the second-time visitor. The south can also be combined with the Serengeti in the north or linked with the west if time and budget allow. The southern circuit includes parks and reserves . There’s Saadani National Park,  Mikumi, the Selous Game Reserve, is great for river experiences on the Rufiji River and also for walking safaris. Udzungwa Mountains is all about forests, waterfalls and weird endemics, while Ruaha is the gem of the southern circuit.

Kilimanjaro Climbing

Why Climb Mount Kilimanaro

Not only is Kilimanjaro the highest peak in Africa, reaching an elevation of 5,895 m (19,340 ft) above sea level, but it is also the world’s tallest freestanding mountain, a long-dormant volcano that towers almost 5 km (3 mi) above the hot and dusty ash-strewn plains from which it rises.

Kilimanjaro is highly attractive to hikers for being the highest mountain anywhere in the world that can be ascended by ordinary tourists without specialized mountaineering experience or equipment – an accomplishment that requires a fair level of fitness, some determination, at least five days, and reasonably deep wallets.

Kilimanjaro Routes
Several different routes can be used to ascend and descend Mount Kilimanjaro. All have their advantages and disadvantages, and the best choice for any given individual depends largely on their priorities.

Zanzibar Beach Vacations

Why Travel To Zanzibar
Many people come to Tanzania for their dream safari experience, but this idyllic archipelago offers an equally valuable opportunity for you to take a few days to unwind in Tanzania’s very own slice of paradise. Whether you’re looking to travel back in time visiting Stone Town, learn about the island’s rich cultural history as an important trade and spice center, participate in some water sports – Zanzibar offers it all.

The Stunning Zanzibar Attractions
While people come to Zanzibar for some much needed rest and relaxation, that doesn’t mean there isn’t history begging to be uncovered or stunning sights, attractions worth seeing. Olosokwan Adventures can help you soak in Zanzibar’s unique cultural and historic identity when you’re not relaxing on the beach
