Let’s go to Tanzania and climb Mt Kilimanjaro. Wouldn’t that be special?!
There is only one answer to this question and it’s a resounding yes. Anyone who gets the opportunity to climb one of the tallest peaks on the planet should grab it with both hands. Apart from the Himalayas, there aren’t many ranges that can boast what Kili has to offer.
What is wrong is to judge Tanzania by one tourist attraction. The mountain is spectacular but so is the country as a whole. Here are four reasons to check it out that don’t include Kilimanjaro.
Ask a friend to name one thing on their bucket list, and a safari will undoubtedly pop up. The idea of watching the Great Migration across the plains of Africa is mind-boggling. Only a select few people get the privilege and you can be a part of the minority. Seriously, it doesn’t have to be a pipedream. Just check out http://www.leopard-tours.com/ to turn it into a reality. With a click of a button, your immediate future may contain lions, leopards, cheetahs and hyenas, not to mention elephants. Plus, it’s on your list then you can kill two birds with one stone. Not literally, though, because it’s illegal!
The name won’t seem familiar at first but you’ve heard of this place. Maybe it’s alias will spark your memory: Zanzibar. Yes, Unguja is the island in the archipelago that represents perfection. With its crystal clear blue water and sandy beaches, it makes the South of France look like its poorer cousin. And, being in Tanzania means the wildlife on the island is spectacular. The big game isn’t available but you’ll love the colourful and birds and angry-looking insects. If that isn’t enough, there’s a historic fort to keep you occupied as well as lots more history and culture.
Where were you born? Are you a European, an Asian, a South American or an Australian? The truth is that it doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. We are all part of the same ancestry, the one that experts say started on the African continent. In fact, http://thecommonwealth.org takes it one step further and says Tanzania may be the birthplace of humanity. Wow, that’s a pretty big allegation to make yet there is evidence from the Olduvai Gorge and in the Manonga Valley. The Bantu people are a link too. If there is ever a reason to visit a country, it’s to see the birth of a nation.
Dar es Salaam
Every country has a city worth seeing, and Dar es Salaam is the jewel in Tanzania’s crown. On the east coast, the metropolis used to be a sleepy fishing village that didn’t see a tourist for weeks. Now, it’s a tourist attraction on par with the likes of Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar. During the day, there are plenty of shops to peruse as well as cafes and restaurants. At night, it turns into something of a hub as the eateries and bars begin to fill up. Anyone who likes a tipple can use the guide on https://theculturetrip.com.
