Serengeti National Park

Serengeti is Tanzania’s largest and most famous National park with great wildlife and various hectares of savannah. It is located in Northern Tanzania and was established in 1951 and covers 14,763 sq km of large savanna grasslands, dotted with acacia trees. The park is home to the greatest wildlife and receives over 350,000 tourists per year. The Serengeti is famously known for the annual Great migration where by thousands of wildebeests together with other animals like the elands, zebras, gazelle and impalas move to around the park throughout the year in search for better and new grazing lands and water. Amazingly as these wildebeests migrate also predators including the wild cats are finding their way to prey.

There are various activities that can be done in Serengeti such as balloon safaris over the park; 6 people these safaris can be done throughout the year- this is an amazing experience whereby you can view the park well and also do photography, balloons used here carry 16 people and there are added services like a drive through the park and champagne breakfast in the bush. Other activities include; Luxury Safaris, Birding Safaris, Wedding Safaris, Wildlife Safaris, Camping Safaris. Over 500 bird species are found in the park and many of these are found in the swampy areas. Other animals found in the park except the wildebeests are the lions, bat eared foxes, leopards, jackals, cheetahs, hyenas.

Serengeti can be visited any time in the year however the best months for wildlife viewing are between December and June. The best time for viewing the Great Migration is through May to July, though still this event can be viewed any time in the year since they move from place to play and their patterns are predictable by the park rangers in most cases they know where to find these animals. You can get to Serengeti by air (using flights), car hire or you can go through tour operators.

Zanzibar

This archipelago in the Indian Ocean is comprised of Zanzibar and Pemba islands. Zanzibar Island is also called ‘Unguja’. Zanzibar is more like a small slice of the paradise with various numbers of white sand beaches and resort which makes it a major holiday destination. There is nothing as amazing as surfing, sailing on traditional boats and diving in ocean waters- there are great scenic views in Zanzibar such as the sun sets, the coral reefs, and lagoons also you can’t miss out on the dolphins, manta-rays and turtles.

Zanzibar is also an amazing place concerning history since it was the major centre of slave trade during the 1800s. While in Zanzibar visit the Stone Town; it is located in the centre of Zanzibar and is regarded as the world’s oldest Swahili city- It was built in the 19th Century, so those interested in history will have a great time seeing ancient Arabian buildings, narrow streets. Visitors will have chance to see some historic buildings which are now museums, there are also old churches like the Anglican church, other things to see are the Beit el-Amani, Central Darajani Market, Beit el-Sahel which is the former home of the sultans, the Old Dispensary with engraved balconies made of wood, Old Fort among others.

Ngorongoro Conservation Area

Ngorongoro Conservation area is located in the North of Tanzania 180 km west of Arusha town between Lake Manyara and Serengeti. It was established in 1959 and is one of Tanzania’s famous wildlife viewing areas (meet the Big 5 here) and also home to popular Ngorongoro volcanic crater which is where its name is derived from.

Ngorongoro Volcano was once among the world’s tallest volcanoes not until it erupted forming the Ngorongoro crater- This is a huge and vast volcanic crater approximately 20km wide and was formed around 2.5 million years ago. It is home to thousands of wild life such as the gazelles, lions, elephants, leopards, buffaloes, rhinos, hippos (in Lake Magadi) however the zebras and wildebeests are the biggest percentage of animals in the crater. This area is a superb place for birding especially near Lake Migadi various birds like the Pink Flamingos have made it a home. Also meet the endangered Black rhinos which are found in this place.

Mount Kilimanjaro

Mountain Kilimanjaro is one of the famous and mostly visited attractions in Tanzania. Mount Kilimanjaro National Park is home to the magnificent and Africa’s highest mountain. This park is not visited for wildlife viewing like it is the case other parks in the North of Tanzania, it is visited by tourists that want to climb/hike to the top of the mountain and those just in need to see this majestic snow capped mountain. Mountain Kilimanjaro can be climbed anytime of the year but it is advisable to climb it during the dry season that is from late June to October.

Mountain Kilimanjaro is 5,895m above sea level and with this height all climbers in the world have always gotten interest in it. This mountain was formed over a million years ago by volcanic movement forces. There are 3 points on this mountain, Kibo, Shira, and Mawenzi whereby the highest peak called Uhuru is on Kibo crater and it is ranked among the world’s highest peaks.

Kilimanjaro is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It rises from farmland at the lowest level to the alpine and rainforests and then the bare landscape at the top. Among the rain forests there are the different animals such as leopards, elands, elephants, monkeys, and buffaloes. Climbing Kilimanjaro doesn’t need special expertise though is not an easy thing which means some fitness is required. There are other options one can go for favoring people with different climbing abilities while there. There are hiking tours on the lower levels of the mountain where tourists are able to walk around the different craters, Shira plateau and also have some wonderful views and also the amazing wildlife.

We climbed Kilimanjaro with Communities and Adventures. Our lead guide was Babaluu. He and his team were awesome. We received the best customer care and were able to make it to the summit. We could not have done it with all 22 of the porters/guides. Thank you.

I can highly recommend Communities and Adventures for your climb of Kilimanjaro. Nelson Mbise made sure I had everything for the climb and made the whole trip a success. Stay away from the big overpriced companies and set yourself up with a great non-profit organization.
