Tanzania is home to some of the largest and most famous tourist attractions on the African continent. It’s home to some of the most spectacular safari experiences anywhere, most notably in the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater whilst the country is also extremely popular with climbers looking to take on the heights of climbing Mt Kilimanjaro ;http://www.africatravelresource.com/climbing-kilimanjaro/ These regions are all found within the north of the country which makes you wonder what else does the rest of the country have to offer? Zanzibar is obviously the first place that springs to mind which is popular with those looking for a bit of beach action. Zanzibar Is an extremely interesting island to visit, home to a vast proportion of Tanzania’s history, it was the hub of the slave trade when it was at its most prolific in the mid-19th century.
Visitors embarking on safaris within Tanzania’s southern circuit are a lot less frequent than those visiting the countries northern circuit when there is enough to see here that would rival any park in Africa. The Selous which you can read more in depth about if you visit us,is one of the largest faunal reserves of the world. The Selous was designated a world heritage site by UNESCO in 1982 due to its diversity of wildlife and its undisturbed nature. If your travels take you into the depths of Southern Tanzania then the Selous is certainly a ‘must do’.
Located in central Tanzania is the Ruaha National Park ;http://www.africatravelresource.com/africa/tanzania/s/ruaha/. During 2008 it was agreed that the park should incorporate the Usangu Wildlife Management Area, which now makes the Ruaha National Park the largest National Park in Africa. As you can imagine the park is vast, so if you would like you make the most of your time there then it’s advisable you take part in a light aircraft safari rather than the typical 4×4 game drive so you can see it all rather than just bits of it.
