The best things to do in Tanzania

If you are thinking of taking a trip into Africa, a great option is to head to Tanzania. It is filled with wildlife and wonders of the world, not to mention a healthy dose of culture. Tanzania is a vibrant and beautiful country with no shortage of adventures to go on. Read our guide for all the best things to do while you are in Tanzania.

For the explorers

If you are a hiker looking for a challenge, Tanzania offers Africa’s highest peak: Mount Kilimanjaro. The World Heritage Site is a long-dormant volcano that offers breathtaking views from its snow-capped mountain and is one of the Seven Summits of the World. The slopes at the bottom are rainforests full of buffaloes, leopards, monkeys, elephants, and eland.

Or visit the historic city of Stone Town, which features Arabian townhouses in a busy port at the heart of Zanzibar. Very little of it has changed in 200 years, with the winding alleys and ancient buildings offering a unique charm and a dose of history with it.

It is the world’s oldest functioning Swahili city, once one of the most important trading towns in the Indian Ocean and has recently seen a refurbishment that has restored many of the buildings to their former glory.

You can find a little cafe that has good Wi-Fi and play 10bet live in Tanzania or check the latest local directory for entertainment for example, or visit the Darajani Market for some street food or see the splendour of City Hall and the Anglican Cathedral. You can witness the former home of the sultans, which is known locally as Beit el-Sahel or visit the Hamamni Persian Baths which were initially built in 1888.

Once you’re done with that, you can visit Tanzania’s answer to the Grand Canyon. The Olduvai Gorge is an archaeological site situated on a series of fault lines and is the world’s source of early mankind with its treasure trove of skull and bone fragments. There have also been footprints of a man, woman and child found at Laetoli near Olduvai, so if you are fascinated about where we came from, this is the site for you.

For sun-worshippers

Being a coastal country, Tanzania has no shortage of beautiful beaches for you to enjoy. The island of Zanzibar is a popular attraction for tourists looking for some sun or water. You can surf in the clear shallow water or simply build a castle in the fine sand.

Or visit the Sea Cliff Casino for probably the best betting in Tanzania. There are a number of casinos along the Dar es Salaam coast, alongside clear waters, and fine sandy beaches, for you to gain a thrill in between topping up your tan.

Or head to Mafia Island, which draws snorkelers and divers from all around the world to witness the undersea world that is protected by the Mafia Island Marine Park. Witness the abundance of tropical fish, the coral gardens, and the countless colourful birds in the area. You might even spot the endangered green turtle, which uses the area as a breeding site.

If you head to Pemba Island, you can experience the best scuba diving in the Indian Ocean with its unparalleled visibility allowing you to witness coral gardens, colourful sponges, and sea fans in the crystal-clear water. It also has become a popular spot for mountain bikers who appreciate the 1,000m peaks.
