Inspiring wildlife, dazzling beaches, romantic ruins, majestic Mount Kilimanjaro and fascinating cultures – adventures don’t come much more diverse than those offered by Tanzania. The red-cloaked Maasai warriors, nomadic Barabaig and the Makonde wood carvers are just three of the Tanzanian peoples that will bring your trip vividly to life. The Indian Ocean coastline cannot help but enchant as you watch it unfold beneath the sails of a dhow, and inland the awe-inspiring challenge that is Kilimanjaro awaits. Best of all, more than any other destination, Tanzania is all about the safaris. Wildebeest traverse the plains, hippos wash in muddy waters, elephant hers migrate and chimpanzees frolic in the treetops. Meanwhile crocodiles hunt, giraffes feed on baobab tress and lions lie languorously in the sun. You cannot help but walk into an adventure with a hotel in Tanzania.
Arusha - A hotel in Arusha is a gateway to the northern safaris of Tanzania, this large, sprawling city offers plenty of chances to relax and recuperate. The lush, green city sits at the foot of Mount Meru and provides access to the wildlife and scenery of the Arusha National Park and the Lake Manyara National Park. The coffee growing areas of Tanzania are not far away providing cultural tours that will fascinate and educate.
Dar es Salaam – This busy port is a fascinating blend of Arab, African, German and Indian influences, with a resulting eclectic dining experience. Beaches and islands offer relaxation, historic towns offer fascinating daytrips and the wildlife spotting opportunities are never too far away with a hotel near Dar es Salaam.
Zanzibar – Part of an archipelago of coral islands that is synonymous with beautiful beaches and the beautiful life. High-end dining, superb diving, lush forests and the atmospheric old buildings of Stone Town. Party, surf, watch dolphins, swim amongst coral gardens or just kick back on a dhow as the world floats by: all this with a hotel in Zanzibar!
Mount Kilimanjaro National Park – This is one national park where the wildlife takes second place. This brooding, majestic mountain is at the heart of Tanzania’s most visited park. Nearly 6,000 metres above you is the snow-capped top of Africa. Kilimanjaro is one of the highest volcanoes and the highest freestanding mountain in the world, rising up through lush rainforests, alpine meadows and to the lunar landscape of its summit.
The awe-inspiring sight of Kilimanjaro rising from the plains rivals the wildlife delights that walk the earth beneath it: lions, zebras, wildebeest, rare monkeys, herds of elephants and many more. Zanzibar’s Stone Town is all atmospheric buildings and bustling bazaars whilst its beaches are pristine coral sands fringed by clear waters.
Head out on a safari of a lifetime in this country that is rich with wildlife and birdlife. Duck under the waters of the Indian Ocean to see beautiful coral gardens and colourful marine life. Take a trip on a dhow to admire the coast or head on a cultural tour to spend time with the semi-nomadic Barabaig near Mount Hanang: here you can enjoy a traditional meal and dance to the rhythms of music that has enriched lives for hundreds of years. Rhythms of a different kind can be danced to at the full-moon parties of Zanzibar’s northern beaches.
