TANZANIA & ZANZIBAR HOLIDAYS

Africa conjures up images of Mount Kilimanjaro looming in the background, lions lounging in the grasslands, elephants splashing in the waters, giraffes scavenging the tree tops and wildebeests stampeding across the dense, arid floor as they look for new grazing spots – this is Tanzania. Untamed, unspoilt and teeming with life. It is the Africa of our dreams. With magnificent natural landscapes, world-renowned attractions, fascinating cultures and a warm welcome at every turn, Tanzanian adventures are truly rich and fulfilling experiences.

Tanzania & Zanzibar

With its dramatic landscapes, majestic wildlife and vibrant cultures, Tanzania offers visitors the journey of a lifetime. Whether embarking on a safari in the Serengeti, tackling the imposing Mt. Kilimanjaro or lounging on the sunny, sprawling beaches of the coast, there is no shortage of beauty and adventure in this southeast African country.

Tanzania is home to some of the world’s largest and most notable natural landmarks. Mt. Kilimanjaro is Africa’s tallest peak and the world’s largest stand-alone mountain. The Ngorongoro Crater, also known as the cradle of life, is a large volcanic caldera contains one of the world’s most untamed and unspoilt wildlife sanctuaries. Just off the Tanzanian coast, you can find the vibrant islands of Zanzibar, where rest and relaxation is prized, but action-packed adventures await.

Safaris of Tanzania Tanzania Highlights Zanzibar Highlights

Things to do in Tanzania and Zanzibar

  • Climb Mt. Kilimanjaro – Africa’s highest peak (5,895 m). While climbing the whole mountain is ambitious, climbing just a part of it is a rewarding experience.
  • Serengeti Camping Safari – Lions roaring, elephants parading through the grasslands, wildebeest grazing and leopards seeking shelter from the blazing sun. Tanzania is one of the best places in Africa to view the big five and other wildlife.
  • The Great Migration – For three months of the year, wildebeest, zebras antelope and hundreds of other animals migrate to the north.
  • Ngorongoro Crater – Travel through the one of the world’s greatest natural wonders and explore its rich landscapes and wildlife.
  • Olduvai Gorge – The “cradle of humankind” and UNESCO World Heritage site is an absolute must-visit.
  • Diving in Paradise – Zanzibar boasts amazing diving opportunities. Its turquoise waters, rich diverse coral reef provide excellent diving and snorkelling sites.
  • Cultural Encounters - With its unique mix of traditional cultures, African roots and Muslim influences, the region is full of rich culture – from the nomadic, red-robed Maasai of the north to the elegant mosques and enticing bazaars.

Although the time of year obviously impacts the climate, it is mostly hot and dry in both destinations. Be sure to pack plenty of lightweight clothing, light colours and layers. Zanzibar is a relatively conservative Muslim region. All travellers should try to be more reserved in their dress and behaviour, especially when visiting religious and historical sites and bazaars. For safaris, be sure to bring a jacket for when the temperatures drops and comfortable walking/hiking shoes.

To prevent heat exhaustion and sunburn, bring plenty of sunscreen, hats, sunglasses and lip balm. Salt tablets, electrolyte packets and rehydrating solutions are great to keep on-hand to ward off heat exhaustion and altitude sickness. When traveling at higher altitudes, make sure to drink plenty of water. Travellers are advised to take anti-malarial medication, as the disease is prevalent in both Tanzania and Zanzibar. In addition to medications, be sure to have plenty of long-sleeve shirts and pants, mosquito nets and insect repellent. Travellers to Zanzibar must present proof of yellow fever vaccination upon arrival. Other medical items to keep nearby include a first aid kit, anti-diarrhoea medication, pain relief medication, antibacterial cream and water-purification tablets.

Binoculars and a camera are essential for safaris and other outdoor excursions. Keep them nearby, as you never know what you may see. Also be sure to pack a torch, pocket knife and a sleeping bag and camp gear if it is not provided by the tour guide.

  • Capital – Dodoma (Tanzania) and Zanzibar City (Zanzibar)
  • Time Zone – GMT + 3 hours
  • Language – English and Swahili are the official languages. However, over 100 different languages are spoken in Tanzania alone.
  • Currency – Tanzanian Shilling

The climate varies greatly throughout Tanzania and Zanzibar. As a result, predicting the weather, especially the temperature, can be difficult. In general, the rainy season runs from March to May. Temperatures hover around low to mid 30°C with high humidity and daily tropical downpours in the afternoon. The dry season is from June to October and rainfall is almost non-existent, even on the islands. A typical day is sunny with clear skies and about 30°C. The months of November and December are considered to be part of the long and dry season, however, there is usually a small amount of rainfall. In Zanzibar, the hot, dry weather occurs between December and February. From June to October, the weather is also dry, but temperatures can be slightly cooler. April usually sees the most rainfall.
