Highlights of Tanzania

A holiday to Tanzania offers an array of beautiful scenery, an abundance of unique wildlife experiences and miles of white sandy beaches. A Tanzania holiday is one of the most diverse you can have in Africa, and with the help of expert tour operator Tanzania Odyssey you can enjoy the best experiences out there in a trip that is completely tailored to you.

Whether you want to hike Kilimanjaro, explore the wild southern parks, trek chimpanzees in the Mahale Mountains, relax on a sparkling Indian Ocean beach in Zanzibar or dive with Whale Sharks on Mafia Island, Tanzania Odyssey can make it work for you. As you can tell, there is so much on offer when exploring Tanzania it is hard to know where to begin, but here is a run down on Tanzania Odyssey’s top experiences around the country. The team have hand picked and experienced them all and know the very best places to stay in order to get the most out of each and every day on your Tanzania adventure.

  1. Trekking Mahale Mountain Chimpanzees

One of the most remote and unique experiences on the continent is possible in Tanzania’s wild west; The Mahale Mountains. Trek and spend an hour with the endangered chimpanzees which reside in these remote and leafy mountains. Enjoy watching these fascinating primates as they interact in what is almost certainly one of the most grounding wildlife experiences in the world today.  

  1. A Serengeti safari

There is a reason The Serengeti is so world famous. The sheer concentration of wildlife and predators here is staggering. Not only that, but visit this mammoth park at the right time of year and catch the Great Wildebeest Migration which is often heralded as the most spectacular natural event on the planet.

  1. Sleeping under the stars in The Selous

Staying in a lodge in the middle of the African bush is always an exhilarating and memorable experience. When staying inside the Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania though, this experience is amplified in the most magical of way. Unlike in the National Parks, as a Game Reserve The Selous offers the opportunity to camp under the stars with only a mosquito net between you and the wild bushy surroundings. Nothing in Africa is more romantic and atmospheric than dozing off in the open air to the faint grunting of hippos in the distance. Not for the faint hearted, but for those who want to experience the African bush in it’s most formidable yet authentic reality.

  1. A day in the Ngorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater has to be seen to be believed. The towering crater walls encloses the huge array of wildlife, and as such you can venture here for one day and tick the big five off your list within a few hours. Nowhere matches Ngorongoro in regards to the sheer density of wildlife in a setting that is truly awe-inspiringly beautiful. Often described as the Garden of Eden, it is no wonder tourists flock from all over the world to see it with their own eyes. 

  1. Snorkelling with Whale Sharks off Mafia Island

On the beaches of Tanzania, there is so much on offer. If simply relaxing on a powdery Zanzibar beach in an intimate boutique hotel isn’t enough, the archipelago has a lot more on offer. Namely, one of the best Indian Ocean experiences awaits on Mafia Island. As a hotspot for (quite literally!) the biggest fish in the sea - the mighty Whale Shark - Mafia Island attracts diving enthusiasts and underwater adventurers from all over the world hoping to catch a glimpse of these gentle giants in the flesh.
