Tanzania see + do

From the sprawling plains of the Serengeti to the snow-capped crown of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania's epic landscape includes some of the most iconic sights on the planet. For first-timers, Tanzania is the perfect introduction to the African safari; for seasoned vets, its vastness means that a pristine pocket of wilderness is always just a plane, train, or bumpy drive away.

The typical Tanzanian safari follows the "northern circuit," which includes world-class wildlife viewing in Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater. But travelers are increasingly looking further afield to remote parks like rugged Katavi National Park, in the west, and the Selous Game Reserve, in the southeast. The allure of Zanzibar's winding alleyways and coral sand beaches continues unabated, but be prepared for touts and sunburned package tourists. For beach time with fewer hassles, consider the island's northwest coast or nearby islands in the archipelago, such as Pemba or Chumbe. If long game drives and lazy days on the beach don't fulfill your idea of the perfect Tanzanian tour, embark on the quintessential African adventure: climbing the snowy heights of Kilimanjaro.

The logistics of planning a trip through Tanzania can be overwhelming, especially for first-time visitors to Africa. It's best to book with a tour operator who will sort out air and overland connections and troubleshoot for you, if necessary. For more information, consult our comprehensive guide to safari planning, working within your budget, and selecting an operator.
