How much do you know about the country of Tanzania, really? You may know that it is home to Mount Kilimanjaro, the world’s largest free-standing mountain, and you may be aware that it is one of the absolute best places to go on African safari. But there are so many other reasons to visit Tanzania.

Whether you have always longed to visit this exquisite land in the heart of the Dark Continent or are just beginning to wonder about its secrets, here is a peek at what Tanzania has to offer.

Zanzibar

Sitting off the coast of Tanzania’s mainland, Zanzibar is accessible by ferry, an island ideal for relaxing on white sandy beaches. Just inland is Stone Town, full of culture, and with opportunities to visit many shops and mosques. You can also take spice tours, go fishing, watch dolphins, and play water sports, because Zanzibar is more than just its beaches.

Dar es Salaam

Tanzania’s capital city is a bustling, fascinating place to visit, where you can take a tour or shop at one of the many street fairs. Wander through the National Museum for a glimpse of the country’s history, walk down Temple Road for a look at the religious temples, marvel at the Mwenge wood carver’s village to find souvenirs, and sample various street food and beverages all along the way.

Ngorongoro Crater

Marking the spot where a volcano once stood over 8 million years ago, this vast crater lies on the southeastern side of the Serengeti, covering 120 square miles. It is home to wild game and birds, a great spot to soak up more nature and extend your safari experience.

Coffee Farms

Did you know that Tanzania is the 19th largest producer of coffee in the world? Not bad for its size. Grown mostly by small farmers on the slopes of Kilimanjaro, Tanzanian coffee is full of bright, berry flavors, and is a testament to the rich soil and hard work found in the region.

Cultural Safaris

If you want to learn more than the average tourist about the country of Tanzania, Zara has carefully crafted tours that include visits to “authentic” Massai villages and farming areas of Mto Wa Mbu.

Tourism has a unique role in Tanzania, in that a percentage of any trip you take is donated to charities like The Porter’s Society, local orphanages, malaria prevention projects, and others. Thus, tourism protects and preserves the country of Tanzania even as it sustains it.

Discover for yourself the matchless draw that Tanzania has for visitors from across the globe. It is like nowhere else on earth. From tallest mountain to lowest plains, a trip to Tanzania offers an enriching experience in every way.
