Things to Do in Tanzania

Balloon Flight in Tanzania
Flights by balloon take off as dawn breaks over the Serengeti, the perfect silence of the early morning plains broken only by the soft roar of the balloon. By far below, wildebeest scatter, looking everywhere but up at the silent visitor that floats over their world. Giraffes stand next to acacia trees, untroubled by the airborne visitors. After the thrill of landing, champagne breakfast awaits, the air becomes warmer as the sun climbs in the sky and curious zebra look up from their grazing at the chink of cutlery in the still, warm bush.

With the soft chug of an outboard engine or the whispering flaps of a canvas sail; a boat safari in Tanzania is a tranquil and relaxing way to watch wildlife. This is one of the best ways to see Selous Game Reserve, up the huge muddy brown sweep of the Rufiji River. Leopard whisking away from the rocks at the boat's approach. Sail into chimpanzee territory on a dhow, skimming over the fresh, crystal waters of Lake Tanganyika, or travel up the Wami River in Saadani, surrounded by amazing birdlife, hippos, and Crocodiles.

Canoeing trips are available in the Arusha National Park and are a wonderful experience, drifting past herds of elephants, Giraffes, Hippos, and Buffalos as you cruise along the shores of the Lake surrounded by countless flocks of birds.

The coral reefs off Tanzania's coast around Zanzibar and Mafia Island offer some of the World's finest scuba diving and snorkeling. Diving is possible all year around, although the Kusi Monsoon (strongest June-Sept) is accompanied by choppy exposed reefs inaccessible. There can also be strong winds in December and January. Visibility is best from November to March, before the long rains set in.

Although not a golfing destination, there are numerous golf courses throughout the country, including Dar es Salaam and Arusha. The local clubs are always very welcoming to any visitor who may wish to swing the odd club. Please Contact Us for more details.

For the fit and adventurous, mountain biking through the African landscape is truly an exciting experience. Avoid roads and traffic and ride through deserts and forests, up mountains and down valleys, through tiny villages and bustling market towns, into the true wilderness past herds of antelope, giraffe, and zebra.

For most climbers who visit Tanzania, the 5,895mt Mount Kilimanjaro is the top prize. Mt Meru, another of Tanzania's volcanic peaks, is also popular, with the varied animals and plant life to be found on its slopes a major draw. Meru is Africa's fifth highest peak, with a fabulous view of Mt Kilimanjaro and Momella Lakes from the summit. The Challenging ascent to the crater of Oldonyo Lengai passes through some fantastic scenery, with panoramic views of the rift valley. The truck to the top of Lengai is a very steep and true challenge attempted only by hikers with a good level of fitness.

The perfect to ease tired limbs after an exhilarating day's game viewing or in preparation for the beach, there are now many hotels, resorts, and lodges in Tanzania and Zanzibar offering World-class spa facilities to keep you feeling rejuvenated.

Walking through the African bush is a wonderful way to experience Africa intimately. Smells and sounds become distinct and varied, and smaller creatures gain significance. They are no longer simply rushed past in the race for a bigger game. When larger animals do appear, they are met at eye level; the land is truly shared between humans and animals. Safety is not issue-all walks are accompanied by armed experienced guides and game rangers. Walks can be from a few hours to a full day with a picnic lunch, contact us for walking tours options
