“Mwenye pupa hadiriki kula tamu” an old Kiswahili proverb translating to “A hasty person misses the sweet things”. These words ring true as a bell when one thinks of Africa, and more specifically Tanzania.
Tanzania is an East African country and safari destination spanning 945,087 km² of vast wilderness, white sandy beaches, spice markets, millions of wildebeest and home to Africa’s highest mountain to name a few.
Prosperous wildlife, thirst-quenching landscapes and crisp blue waters of the Indian Ocean. These words can describe the experience you can expect from the magnificent country and a Tanzania safari. Are your feet itching yet?
Tanzania is home to many sights and visitors can look forward to an unlimited choice when it comes to the itinerary and safari parks. Tanzania also plays host to the Great Migration, regarded by most as one of the world’s most amazing natural events. This natural phenomenon is where over 1 million wildebeest, antelope, and zebra migrate clockwise around the Serengeti and Maasai Mara ecosystems year on year. This is also a fantastic opportunity to spot many of Africa’s top predators in action including lion, cheetah and the mighty elusive leopard.
Furthermore, Tanzania is also earmarked for Africa’s highest mountain, Kilimanjaro. Many climbers (around 35 000) attempt to climb this dormant volcano every year. However, towering in at 5,895m or 19,341 feet high, this is no stroll in the park.
Zanzibar is also a safari destination of Tanzania. With tourist numbers increasing each year and hopes of attracting 500 00 visitors by the year 2020, It is easy to see why this Indian Ocean archipelago is a competitive destination.
It can be concluded that Tanzania is a country which will satisfy even the strongest of wanderlusts. It only makes sense to summarise this epic country with these words; “go on, an adventure awaits – Tanzania awaits”.
