Out of the hundreds of countries, each having their own special and unique features, the African country of Tanzania has held the favor of many travelers, claiming the title of the Best Safari Country. Besides its relative safety, Tanzania’s wildlife is incredibly diverse, residing in beautiful lush forests and dry open savannahs.
Here are 7 reasons why Tanzania has been voted the best safari country:
Whether you are old or young, a family or newlyweds and beginners or experts, there is something in this scenic country for you to enjoy! There are so many things to try, from tough mountain climbing to smooth sailing on the Zanzibarian coast. The options are practically endless, with the only apparent downfall being the fact that there is too much to do to be able to cover everything in one quick trip, so plan ahead before flying out.
Africa’s tallest peaks await any and all daring adventurers! The sight of the mountain reaching from the earth to the clouds is one that should never be missed. You could climb to the top and touch the sky if you have enough experience, or you could start off slow and wander around the base of the mountain which acts as a habitat for many grazers and other animals.
While the entire continent is filled with easy-to-spot wildlife throughout the dry seasons, the wet seasons are not as satisfactory. Or, at least, that’s the usual case in most places. However, in Tanzania even the wet seasons cannot disperse the huge population of animals, especially up north where many creatures are out and about.
What would perfectly complement an adrenaline-filled safari and create the best memories to leave the country on? The Zanzibari beaches, of course!
With soft white sand and turquoise waves of the Indian Ocean moving under the bright sun pinning the clear blue sky above the earth, what more could you ask for? Sunbathing, swimming and diving are many of the common activities to indulge in at the beaches.
The Great Wildebeest Migration is an event whereby about two million wildebeests travel between the Masai Mara and Serengeti. Many other herbivores such as zebras and gazelles tag along, adding to create what is considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
Gombe is one of the few places in the world where you can go chimpanzee tracking and is famous for the ape families it harbors. The serene atmosphere and beautiful lake surprisingly are criminally underrated and don’t get too many guests, so there is never a crowd problem in these parts.
While most imagine safaris on a four wheeled vehicle, here you can let your imagination expand to the skies! Hot air balloon rides are pretty famous in some areas of Tanzania, providing the perfect bird’s eye view of the terrain and creatures roaming below. Walking safaris are also available with a well-trained guide.
So, what are you waiting for? Head over to Tanzania and enjoy an adventurous safari!
If you’re a solo traveler, don’t worry because a safari in Tanzania is perfect for solo travelers. Here’s why!
