Here are the top adventures you’ll want to book in 2020:
Mt. Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest, and the world’s tallest free standing, mountain. The hike up ‘Kili’ is an adventurous and challenging ride that will give you a sense of achievement once you’ve done it! While you’re hiking up the mountain, you’ll get to experience drastic changes in climate. In fact, there are 5 different ecological zones, each coming one after the other as you make your way up the mountain!
The Great Migration of Serengeti, also known as one of the “USA Today’s Seven Wonders of the World” is a majestic natural phenomenon that involves the migration of up to 2 million herbivores from Serengeti to Masai in Kenya and back again, their circle of life. It’s mesmerizing to see and feel the ground tremble from the movement of the wildebeests that are involved in the migration!
Whale sharks are the largest fish of the ocean! Encountering one is a life-changing, breath-taking and adventurous experience! If you’re looking for some fish adventure, head over to Mafia Island and dive/swim with the whale sharks that surround the Island. The best time to visit is from October to January because the whale sharks come toward the shore of the Island as seasonal conditions bring dense concentrations of their foods!
Imagine watching the diverse wildlife of Tanzania from a hot air balloon! It’s a magnificent and adventurous experience that you’ll never forget for the rest of your life. Observing zebras, lions and giraffes in their natural habitat from up above is a great experience!
You can also observe the Great Migration of Serengeti in a hot air balloon!
Afraid of the water? Overcome your fear by facing it! Learn how to dive and kitesurf in the islands that surround Tanzania. Not only will you get over your fear of water, but you’ll also have a great time! Diving is one of the most satisfying experiences that give you an insight into the beauty of the underwater world and the billions of creatures that reside in it.
You can learn how to kitesurf at the Zanzibar Kite Paradise! Zanzibar also has many diving institutes that teach you how to dive!
The Big 5 of Africa include lions, elephants, leopards, buffaloes and rhinos. You can spot the Big 5 at Serengeti National Park or at the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Either way, observe the tracks of these 5 and see if you can learn how to identify them from their tracks!
