Visit Tanzania for a holiday of a lifetime

Whenever travel enthusiasts talk about the holiday of a lifetime, they always mention Tanzania. With its sustainable tourism policy, its scenic attractions and its incredible Tanzania Safari adventures, visitors can’t get enough of this destination. You’ve probably read many poetic travelogues. You probably know that Tanzania has a large wildlife population and that it is home to the world’s highest free-standing mountain. Adventure seekers know that Tanzania is the only country where you can enjoy challenging mountain hikes, intense watersports and great wildlife photographic outings.

But they sometimes leave out other important facts about the Tanzanian holidays. Here I’ll list different reasons why Tanzania is the ideal location for the holiday of a lifetime. 

  1. Excellent Conservation Policies

Very few countries preserve their landscapes and animal populations like Tanzania. In fact, Tanzania has the most impressive preservation and conservation policies on the continent. Tanzania’s sustainable tourism policy has made it more attractive to nature conservationists. It is common to see tourists who visit Tanzania primarily because they are eager to witness The Great Wildebeest Migration.

To have the holiday of a lifetime, it is important to visit a country, like Tanzania, that promotes sustainability. Not one that plunders the earth and fails to protect its wildlife. If you believe in preserving the earth, you want to be around like-minded nature conservationists. While you’re enjoying your holiday in Tanzania, you can rest assured that poachers won’t be prowling around the nature parks shooting down your favorite animals.

  1. Scenic and Magical World Heritage Sites

How many other safari countries can boast of seven certified World Heritage Sites? None. But Tanzania can. These world heritage sites are wonders of the world. Consider holidaying in the scenic Serengeti and witnessing millions of Wildebeests making their yearly migration.  Such an experience will stay with you for the rest of your life. To make the most of the opportunity. schedule an educational tour to the Laetoli, the Kondoa Rock Art Cave and the Olduvai Gorge, sites.

Think about the unadulterated grasslands of Katavi, Selous and Ruaha. You’ll watch the largest land animals in the world (tens of thousands of elephants) coexisting with other wildlife (both preys and predators).

Hemmingway fans will be pleased to experience a memorable holiday in the author’s favorite Lake Manyara. If you’ve read Ernest Hemingway’s travelogues, you probably already know about its crystal clear rushing waters and its serene landscape.

I haven’t mentioned the idyllic beaches of Zanzibar, Africa’s tallest mountain and more. Tanzania is definitely the most magical destination to have the holiday of a lifetime.

You deserve to enjoy the best holiday of a lifetime. However, the onus is on you to choose the right destination(s).

Tanzania is one of the best holiday destinations in the world. With its scenic landscapes, its breathtaking beaches and its diverse wildlife population, there is never a shortage of activities. Most of Tanzania’s wildlife population can be spotted at any time of the year. However, wildlife tends to retreat during the high rainy seasons (April and May).

Dry season is high season for tourists mostly because it also coincides with the Western summer breaks. It is also the best time to experience the major highlights of a Tanzanian safari. The Great Wildebeest Migration, general wildlife viewing and mountain hikes are all best experienced between July and October. 

But don’t forget that February is when the spectacular calving season comes around. If you want to experience thousands of wildebeests birthing their young, then you will have to book your Tanzanian holiday for February.
