One of the most popular activities in Tanzania by far is to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. However, this country has far more to offer its visitors, including spectacular wildlife safaris in the Serengeti National Park (home to the entire Big Five game) and gorilla and chimpanzee tracking in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Nothing short of an epic adventure Reviewed Tour: Kilimanjaro Climb - Rongai route
5 - Excellent
  • David
“It was an epic journey to the top of Kilimanjaro via Rongai route. The trek was not easy and the support of the wonderful crew led by Yesse Lema was the difference that took us to the summit. We could have failed miserably without their support. The trail goes through the different habitats and as we went higher we had awesome views of beautiful landscapes down below and we confirmed the words of Mike our travel consultant that Rongai has the best views. I had mild Altitude sickness and the crew was at hand with herbal remedies that had me better within a short while. It was just me and my girlfriend on the climb which made it very intimate. Thank you for great equipment, tasty meals, all the water, bathroom convenience and above all the duty and care of getting 2 armature climbers safely to the summit.”
Perfect Kilimanjaro and Safari Experience Reviewed Tour: Kilimanjaro Climb - Rongai route

“A group of friends and I decided to do Kilimanjaro in November. We booked the trip with Zara Tours who are one of the oldest and well established travel agencies in Tanzania. They not only gave us a wonderful and experienced crew but also top notch equipment for the trek. We also stayed at their hotel in Moshi Springlands Hotel which was perfect.We reached the summit on 28th November and then did a 3 day safari to Lake Manyara and Ngorongoro Crater. I highly recommend Zara Tours.”

Tanzania - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

Friendly people and a beautiful culture are what makes holidays in Tanzania unique. Tanzania is most famous for Serengeti National Park, one of the best wildlife destinations on the planet. The park is home to those big game animals and is the perfect place for a safari. The wildlife and national parks of Tanzania steal away all the limelight, but the country’s beaches are also known to be equally magical. Tanzania is surrounded by islands that offer sleepy villages steeped in centuries-old culture and Swahili traditions and the powdery beaches that simply blow you away. Mount Kilimanjaro, another highlight of Tanzania, can be conquered by the most inexperienced hikers as well, as long as you carefully acclimatize as you ascend, and have the willpower to summit. A trip to Tanzania would be incomplete without visiting the markets and mosques of Stone Town in Zanzibar.  

Travel Highlights

  • Get a bird’s eye view from the peaks of Mt. Kilimanjaro.
  • Experience the Serengeti and see the variety of wildlife it has to offer.
  • Learn about the variety of primate in the Mahale Mountains National Park.
  • Soak up the sun on the Eastern coast of Africa at Unguja, Nugwi, or Matemwe Beaches.
  • Swim with the fishes at Mafia Island, or get an in depth olfactory experience in the Spice Islands.
  • Take in Zanzibar and its mélange of Middle Eastern, African, and Indian cultures

Travel Tips

  • Plan time to see the country; it is vast and takes time to experience.
  • Be on the lookout for creatures that are native to Tanzania, like the Kilimanjaro Shrew, or the Highland Rain Frog.
  • Take the train; many places can be reached by railway.
  • Read up before you go; there is plenty of literature on Tanzania.
  • Pack light; travel is a little more complicated there, so make sure you pack for it.
  • Don’t stick to just the tourist attractions; there is a lot to see that might be a little off the beaten path, like visiting the Underwater Room at the Manta Resort.
  • Keep in mind that the more remote you are, the spottier your reception will be. You won’t be cut off completely, but it will be harder to get a connection.
