Tanzania Adventure Travel
Adventure Travel in Tanzania means one of two things. Going on a Tanzania African Safari or Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro.
Some trips can combine the two - and this is the best way to get a flavour of this truly unique African nation. The Serengeti National Park is where many Tanzania safari holidays take place - this vast expanse attracts more than 90,000 tourists every year. Covering some 30,000 sq km, the park is home to some of the planet's most spectacular wildlife, including lions, cheetahs and wildebeest. Mikumi National Park, Saadani National, Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Manyara are also popular destinations on a safari holiday to Tanzania, with the latter providing a perfect opportunity to go elephant spotting.
Meanwhile, the challenge of a Kilimanjaro climb is another reason why adventurous travellers book Tanzania holidays in their droves. Generally, tourists can choose between two paths up the mountain - the Machame and Rongai routes. The former is the more challenging of the two, offering inspirational views of the Kibo Peak and the surrounding area. Meanwhile, those who opt for the Rongai route on their Tanzania holiday adventure tread a gentler path and enjoy a wonderful vantage point for the Masai lands. Travellers can enjoy their holidays to Tanzania safe in the knowledge that their guides and porters are being paid a fair wage and that their national park fees are being invested in the maintenance of the country's unique peak.
Regardless of whether a holiday is being taken for a Tanzania safari or a Kilimanjaro trek, adventure travellers will not want to miss out on a trip to Zanzibar. The exotic spice island boasts beautiful sandy beaches and the rambling alleyways of the charming Stone Town, making it the perfect way to round off a holiday to Tanzania.
Family Adventure Holidays in Tanzania
Many children enjoy trips to the zoos, but there is nothing better than seeing animals up close in their natural environment on a Family Adventure Travel to Tanzania. Taking kids on a safari holiday to Tanzania is a great way to feed their imaginations and leave them with memories that will last a lifetime. As long as children are sensible and respectful of the customs of the national parks, there is no reason why they cannot enjoy the trip of a lifetime during their Tanzania holiday.
The same ethos can be applied to a Kilimanjaro trek - climbing the peak is not advisable for very small children, but fit and healthy teenagers should be able to tackle the gentler Rongai route. Meanwhile, those who enjoy a bit of rest and relaxation will welcome the chance to take their children to Zanzibar.
A lazy few days on the exotic spice island's beaches are the perfect way to rest up after a challenging and inspiring family holiday to Tanzania.
