WHY VISIT TANZANIA
An animal kingdom full of untamed nature; Tanzania takes us back to the origins of mankind. However, before venturing into the national parks, Dar-Es-Salaam, the capital, will surprise you with its diversity of cultures: the port with its dhows and cargo ships, the Kariakoo market, the national museum, the botanical gardens, and the Oyster Bay beach are some top places to visit.
Kilimanjaro Park is obviously a fundamental stopover on your journey: The mythical volcano with its eternal snow, surrounded by forests inhabited by leopards, buffalo, and elephants, serves as a backdrop for amazing, but difficult, hiking.
Another legendary place is the Serengeti National Park: There you can admire the unforgettable spectacle of the gnu migration, but also giraffes and lions. Do not forget your binoculars.
The island of Zanzibar is another incontestable attraction of Tanzania: A stroll through the old city of Stone Town with its bazaars and mosques, a visit to the Marhubi palace, the Jozani Forest, make a stop on its heavenly beaches, discover the dhow building yard in Nungwi and the dolphins in Kizimkazi; all will leave you with amazing memories.
WHAT TO SEE IN TANZANIA
WHEN TO GO TO TANZANIA
The best period to visit Tanzania is from May to October.
The climate separates the year into two main seasons: The dry season from May to October and the rainy season from November to April. But the latter is divided into two periods: A light rainy season in November and December, and a heavier rainy season in March and April.
The highest temperatures are experienced between December and February. This is, however, affected by the geographical areas: The high plateau of the interior is characterized by a more tropical climate and the coast by an equatorial type climate. The dry season is a very pleasant time to visit Tanzania, but less favorable for discovering the animals of the Serengeti.
Following is a list of typical festivals and celebrations of Tanzania.
