Tanzania Travel Guide

by our Tanzania expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryThe romance of Africa begins as you spot elephants during the aircraft’s descent, as you bank around Kilimanjaro and see the rising sun glint off its snows. You’re on your way to Serengeti to watch millions of animals traverse the annual migration route, perhaps on a tented safari with the night noises of Africa just outside, perhaps in a ludicrously comfortable lodge in the bush. En route, you descend into the Ngorongoro crater that acts as a vast cage-less zoo and also learn about the very origin of man at the nearby Olduvai Gorge. You want to see the wildlife ‘Big 5’ of course, and do, but quickly discover how much more there is, from wild dogs, to secretary birds, to crocodiles lurking for the migrating herds to attempt hazardous river crossings. Tanzania has so many different ways of showing you wildlife. ‘Full of game, empty of people’ describes the huge Selous reserve in the south. Gombe and Mahale in the west give you chimpanzees and mountain gorillas. And to relax while you try to digest the thousands of images you’ve seen, go off-shore into the Indian Ocean to spice island Zanzibar or the hidden paradise of the Mafia archipelago. If you miss something, don’t worry – you’ll be back.
