5 Top Rated Crowd-Pleasers In Tanzania

Tanzania is filled with many natural wonders and attractions that draw massive crowds. Since getting the visa for Tanzania is a simple process, hundreds of thousands of people visit every year to climb its mountains, relax on its beaches, and witness millions of animals in their natural habitats. The details on the best spots in the country are given below.

Serengeti National Park

Home to millions of animals, the Serengeti is the second largest national park in Tanzania. People visit these plains mostly during June and July when 1.5 million wildebeests and hundreds of thousands of zebras migrate. It is also famous for having over 500 different bird species and other animals like the Big Five. Many visitors also visit during the early months of the year to witness the wildebeests and zebras gather in huge crowds and calve.

Mount Kilimanjaro

People don’t visit Mountain Kilimanjaro National Park for its wildlife; instead, they go there to climb to the summit of the beautiful snow-capped mountain. It has the highest peak among the African mountains and is the tallest freestanding mountain in the world, which makes it the most famous place in Tanzania. Five different trails lead to the top, and none of which should be taken lightly. The Machame route is popular among the tourists, but the Rongai path is considered to be the easiest. 

Zanzibar Beaches

The Zanzibar archipelago consists of around 50 islands near the mainland Tanzania. The most visited islands are Pemba and Unguja, the latter is usually called Zanzibar. Unguja has soft white-sandy beaches and turquoise waters that make it one of the most popular holiday destinations. Both the major islands are surrounded by coral reefs, mangroves, and warm crystal-clear waters, making it ideal for all kinds of water activities. Tourists can find the historical city of Stone Town, located on the western side of Unguja, that has many landmarks and lively streets.

Tarangire National Park

The Tarangire National Park is highly underrated and often overshadowed by the more famous ones. Many tourists aren’t aware that Tarangire has a wide variety of wildlife and a beautiful landscape with the largest Baobab trees species in the world. The park is also home to the largest population of African elephants, over 500 different species of birds, and many other animals. Tarangire offers its visitors a feeling of peace and quiet during the safari since it is less crowded than the others.

Gombe Stream National Park

The park is famous for people who want to see over a hundred species of chimpanzee, on a beaten off track. Guides take tourists to see the many species of primates and mammals that live in the area. Visitors can also go follow a trail that leads to a waterfall in the valley. It is the smallest park in the country, but it was made famous after Jane Goodall’s study. The British researcher closely observed the chimps, and her research has become the longest-running behavioral program of its kind in the world.
