Travel is Important: Embrace it with Tanzania Adventures from Zara Tours

“All the pathos and irony of leaving one’s youth behind is thus implicit in every joyous moment of travel: one knows that the first joy can never be recovered, and the wise traveler learns not to repeat successes but tries new places all the time.” – Paul Fussell

Mr. Fussell is by no means alone in his reverence of travel; in fact, he is in very good company, for very good reason. Over the centuries, the world’s greatest minds have written, spoken and rhapsodized about the wonders and power of travel. It follows then, that this theme wouldn’t be so persistent if there wasn’t any truth in their words.

With that in mind, we’ve rounded up some of the most important benefits that come with travel:

Character Development

Travel takes us out of our element and exposes us to new lands, experiences and cultures. In this way, travel informs our sense of self and allows us to grow as individuals following our journeys and adventures.

Leaves the Comfort Zone Behind

When traveling, everything is a new experience; even something insignificant in normal life (like eating breakfast) takes on the feeling of something new. We leave behind our familiar home turf and the monotony of normal routine, and with them, our comfort zone. Travel allows us to push the boundaries of our daily life and existence.

Teaches Life Lessons That Cannot Be Learned in a Classroom  

At some point in our education most of us will spend time learning about other lands, cultures and languages; however, one cannot truly be immersed in and understand culture without experiencing it firsthand.

Exposure to New Things

The desire at the root of all travel is to go somewhere we haven’t been before, to seek out that which is new. Sure, we can all try new things in our own cities – a restaurant or a store – but there is no more efficient way to find the new than to travel to a new destination.

Experience and Embrace New Cultures  

When we travel, we can be the masters of our own destiny. We choose where to go, when to go, where to stay, what to do while we’re there, and in doing so, we’re empowered to throw ourselves into a whole new world. However, we also have the ability to limit ourselves. If, during our travels, we choose merely to seek out the familiar in an unfamiliar land, we are denying ourselves the opportunity to truly experience a new culture with different elements to offer than our own.

If that sounds like just what the doctor ordered, look no farther than Zara Tours. Our Tanzania adventures are the experience of a lifetime. No matter how you want to explore Tanzania, we have accommodations and guides to make it happen. Contact us with inquiries at
