Warm smiles and cheerful waves amid dry landscapes.
Rolling waves and rusty skies on silent beaches.
The weaver bird sings in the morning, the hippo responds to its calling.
Clinging coffee in steel pots, bush meals and sundowners.
Before you fall in love, you know it is time to go home.
A gush of emotions roll in when we think of Tanzania. You may be nervous during your first visit, however they say, you always come here as a guest but leave as a family. Custom made of nothing extraordinary, here are some moments in gold you would want to behold for a lifetime during your travels in the Swahili land.
Touching the Giant Aldabra Tortoise
Excited to get close to all the wild animals? Well you may not be lucky to touch your favourite baby elephants or the lion cubs but the giant tortoises in Prison Island of Zanzibar are always excited to make new friends. Some of them are above a hundred years but are full of energy when you feed and pamper them. And you will be lucky to find these unique species here, as these gifts from the British Governor of Seychelles are now under threat of extinction in the world.
Basking in Sunsets
Nothing in nature can feel more magical than the African skies. Every dawn paints a different color on the earth and ends with an emotional story. While sipping sundowners at your lodge or tented camps, the chirping birds, the grunting hippos and the roaring lions will just remind you of adventure being is a constant thrill in Africa that breaks the monotony of our passing lives. Most safari accommodations are in the midst of nature that open up to breathtaking vistas from sunrise to sunset with the passing animals.
Cycling on the Beach
We would rather call it beach therapy. In this demanding and fast paced life, what a privilege it is to ride along these serene and undisturbed part of nature all by yourself. Unlike popular beaches, seascapes in island of Pemba, Mafia and Zanzibar are not crowded and very safe. If you are here for a holiday after a rigorous busy schedule, the beaches in Zanzibar are soothing and a perfect stop to enjoy relaxing holidays while doing nothing but giving time to yourself.
Walking in the Wild
Walking safaris in Tanzania offer a very unique perspective of wildlife destinations. Local guides in Selous, Ruaha, Ngorongoro, Tarangire other parks are well versed in English and have incredible knowledge of Flora and Fuana. Walking in the wild especially with kids is adventurous and helps to overcome the fears that one beholds. You may often meet wild animals and your guides will teach you how to respect them without feeling threatened.
Exploring the Ruins
Tanzania is not only famous for its wildlife. It is a home to some of the most well preserved nature’s and man made creation and a handful attractions have been conferred the UNESCO World Heritage Site Title. One of which is the untouched architectural paradise of Stone Town camouflaging rustic ruins with an influence Swahili, Indian, Arab and European ethnics reflected in the buildings, most dating back to the 18th and 19th century.
