Unique Tanzania safari destinations to explore : With its incredible diversity of wild African creatures, warm beaches, and a rich history and culture, Tanzania makes it easy to locate one-of-a-kind and breathtaking safari experiences. We offer you the skinny on a few unforgettable Tanzania safari adventures you may take part in in this amazing region of East Africa that just might alter your perspective on life.

The Great Wildebeest Migration/ Serengeti National Park.

Tanzania offers a front-row seat to one of nature’s greatest shows, the yearly migration of wildebeest and zebra. It is arguably the finest chance you will ever have to witness a large number of African animals all at once during this annual event, which involves thousands of animals moving over the Serengeti plains in search of food.

The underwater Room at the Manta Resort.

The Manta Resort’s Underwater Room is a submarine-style room with a bed that provides panoramic views of the ocean below. The only company you’ll have as you drift off to sleep at night will be the passing schools of tropical fish, while those who prefer sky views can relax on the wooden terrace above for breathtaking views of the Milky Way. You don’t have to worry about floating off into the deep blue ocean since the Underwater Room is actually tethered to the ground, despite the fact that it looks to float among the water.

Kilwa Kisiwani Ruins.

 Off the coast of Tanzania, the island of Kilwa Kisiwani was once the epicentre of one of East Africa’s largest empires and a prosperous and potent port. It was essential to the growth of Swahili civilisation, and the Great Mosque’s ruins the oldest in East Africa can still be seen today. The Palace of Husuni Kubwa, which has a view of the island and was once the biggest structure in sub-Saharan Africa, is another noteworthy location.

Mount Kilimanjaro.

Even if you don’t make it to the top of Africa’s tallest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, climbing its slopes will undoubtedly change your life. Reaching its snow-capped heights has caused many people to cry, either out of pleasure or anguish, as the sensation of being on top of the world is a deeply moving one. However, it is not advised for those who are unprepared to go to the peak, so if climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is on your bucket list, start preparing immediately.

Lake Natron.

Lake Natron, thought to be the most caustic body of water in the world and located at the bottom of the Great Rift Valley, offers some of Tanzania’s most peculiar and stunning scenery. There isn’t much fauna in the isolated, hot area near the foothills of the smoky, active volcano Oldoinyo Lengai. The lake is home to a remarkable community of bacteria that give the water its peculiar pinky-red tint despite the adverse surroundings and excessively alkaline water. Flamingos also enjoy eating the creatures, and Natron is famous for being the only place in East Africa where lesser flamingos regularly breed.

Ol Doinyo Lengai.

The only active volcano in the world that spews forth carbonatite lava instead of silica creates some peculiar and intriguing visuals. This volcano is located in Tanzania. Because it is cooler than other volcanic magna, the lava can harden quickly and occasionally break in midair before dropping down the hills. Additionally, it has a significant concentration of alkaline elements including calcium, sodium, and potassium, which give the lava its peculiar colour characteristics.

Mingle with chimps at the Gombe National Park.

The Kasekela chimpanzee population, which has been featured in countless books and videos, calls this small, protected area on the southern banks of Lake Tanganyika home. Jane Goodall once studied chimpanzee behaviour in this area, and many different ape species call it home. Trek through the park to see the chimpanzees and be astounded by all the human traits they exhibit.

Oldupai Gorge Museum.

The most well-known archaeological site in East Africa is located here, where fossilised hominid footprints found embedded in volcanic rock date back to the beginnings of humankind. Long before the invention of stone tools, these hominids walked erect on two legs as we do, as evidenced by the shape, length, and toes of their primordial footprints. The Mary Leakey-founded museum features an entire hall devoted to the Laetoli fossilised footprints and is committed to promoting awareness of and understanding of the Oldupai Gorge and Laetoli fossil sites.

Forodhani Gardens.

For a culinary feast, visit Forodhani Gardens, where the nighttime food stalls provide all of Zanzibar’s flavours. This tiny, historic park is the ideal safari place to visit if you want to meet the people and sample delicious food with a distinctively Zanzibar flair. It is situated right in the centre of Stone Town.

Kuza Cave.

Visitors to this place can get a glimpse of the amazing underground world where rivers swirl through the earth against a stunning backdrop of stalactites and stalagmites. The cave’s fresh, running water formerly drew both animals and people, and bones found scattered around the cave suggest that giraffe and waterbuck once visited it. However, much of the cave remains unexplored. The cave also houses crystal-clear pools, some of which are up to eight feet (two metres) deep, and has long served as a site of devotion for the locals.

Game viewing in a hot-air balloon.

Flying above the plains of one of the most well-known animal viewing locations in the world combines magic and thrill. In case you’re lucky, moments like these only occur once or twice in a lifetime, hence a surreal hot-air balloon ride safari over the Serengeti is strongly advised. As you reconnect with nature and refresh, observe buffalo and zebra herds tearing through emerald fields and feel the kiss of the setting African sun on your back.

Swim with dolphins at Kizimkazi.

Given their high intelligence and social nature, encountering dolphins has to be considered as once-in-a-lifetime occasion. As you don a snorkeling set and go exploring, the calm, clear water that surrounds the island of Kizimkazi provides the ideal setting to encounter these magnificent beasts. Please be aware that dolphins are incredibly delicate creatures and should always be treated with respect.

Melt into the peace of Selous Game Reserve.

The largest reserve in Africa, this vast area offers a very different safari experience than the Serengeti. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has strict rules against permanent occupancy, giving it a very secluded and untouristy atmosphere. The reserve is huge and is made up of hills, grasslands, and marshes; if you schedule a safari, it’s extremely probable that you won’t see another person the entire time you’re there. This beautiful setting is home to a huge diversity of fauna and birds that remain essentially untouched by human interference.

Connect with the past in Stone Town.

Through its winding, winding lanes and historic structures, this UNESCO World Heritage Site radiates a diverse aura. Here, history and contemporary life coexist, with relics of the past narrating timeless tales of fate both good and tragic. The city offers opportunities to engage with history and culture, and its stunning architecture displays the many different languages, cultures, and races that have had an impact on the area over time. The House of Wonders and the Arab Fort, both erected by the Omanis in the late 17th century, are noteworthy structures. The House of Wonders was built by the second Sultan of Zanzibar.
