Ideas for experiencing Tanzania
Experiences you have as you travel often hold the longest memories. As part of their research trips, our specialists seek out authentic ways to get to know Tanzania, and the best local guides. These activities reflect some of their best-loved experiences.
Stone Town is a maze of haphazard alleyways lead between tall houses and palaces. The spice market is a popular place to visit and there are numerous places to stop for a spot of lunch.
Tanzania's coast offers some wonderful snorkelling and swimming opportunities, especially the islets and beautiful coral shelves of Chole Bay.
The emphasis on your safari with your host and guide, Moli, is on the walking safaris which really unveil the magic of Ruaha National Park. You can also incorporate bushcraft into a walk.
You will set off on foot from Greystoke Camp with your guide and will head up the steep forested slopes of the Mahale Mountains in search of primates. Six species of primates live in the mountains, but the main excitement for most visitors are the chimpanzees.
The Ngorongoro Crater is home to a large population of resident game and one of the highest concentrations of predators in Africa. It's home to all big game, including rhino, although sightings are not guaranteed.
Throughout the year, the two million strong migration of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles wanders the plains of the Serengeti and the Masai Mara in search of water and fresh grazing.
This is one of the most popular ways to see the wildlife of the Serengeti. The flight will last for around an hour before you land to celebrate with champagne before a full English breakfast prepared and served in style in the middle of the bush.
