Tour guides Tanzania
Take a trip to Tanzania
A trip to Tanzania will allow you to experience the best that East Africa has to offer. Immense territories, savannahs invaded by a vegetation of rare trees, like the high baobabs, large lakes, with first the mythical Tanganyika, the highest mountain of the continent, that the most intrepid will climb to reach the summits of Kilimanjaro… And of course its legendary fauna, with the omnipresent big five, that you will rub shoulders with during a safari in the Serengeti national park, for example. Throughout the country, you will meet tribes with a preserved heritage and lifestyle, such as the Maasai, and of course, you will be able to relax on the “spice island”, Zanzibar, and its heavenly beaches.

Five ideas for guided tours in Tanzania
Going to the Mount Kilimanjaro National Park, it is the possibility to observe the highest snowy massifs of Africa. 3 ancient volcanoes make up this mountain: the Shira, the Mawenzi and the Kibo, with its mount Uhuru culminating at 5 892 meters. To climb it, exclusively accompanied by a professional Tanzania tour guide, the best season is from June to October. There are several possible routes depending on your physical condition and abilities. In total, the trek takes 7 to 10 days. The panorama on the surrounding plains is prodigious, and for those who will not try the adventure, the whole park is a privileged place to wander in the tropical forests and the grassland, to observe the fauna made up of buffalos, monkeys, elephants or leopards, as well as a great variety of birds. At night, the sunset show over the vast land and its mountains will remain an unforgettable memory of your trip.
Serengeti National Park
The largest wildlife park in Tanzania. The Serengeti Park is located in the north of the country and attracts a large number of tourists every year. They come to admire an abundant fauna in magnificent landscapes made of savannahs, forests and rivers, where the animals come to drink. One of the most spectacular shows is the migration of millions of wildebeest, gazelles and zebras, which takes place between May and June. The best place to watch this is probably in the Ndutu area. Their journey, 2,000 kilometers long, allows them to escape the coming rains and will lead them to better pastures, during a crazy race where they will have to remain vigilant against the predators that lurk.
Zanzibar archipelago is located off the coast of the country, on the Indian Ocean. The 3 main islands are Unguja (more commonly known as Zanzibar), Mafia and Pemba. It is an ideal holiday destination, with coral reefs where a multitude of fish live, turquoise water and sandy beaches, surrounded by coconut trees. Zanzibar differs from the rest of Tanzania by the meeting of different cultures that blend harmoniously. Africa is represented, of course, but also India, not so far away, and Europe, through the influence it has had on the population, especially via the Portuguese and the British. On the main island, we will stroll through the alleys of Stone Town, with its houses with walls made of shells. For a little more peace and quiet, you can go to Pemba, more out of the way: it is here that the most beautiful diving spots are located. Mafia Island, besides having beautiful coral gardens, as well as numerous species of fish and sea turtles, has remained a preserved and authentic place, perfect for a total disconnection.
The Ngorongoro Volcano Crater area, located between the Serengeti and Lake Manyara, is a prime viewing area for wildlife, which enjoys this area of constant water supply, reaching an altitude of 2,000 meters. All kinds of animals can be found here: lions, elephants, leopards, rhinos, buffalos, and of course zebras and wildebeests, which form the majority of the wild animals that come to drink near this gigantic crater, the largest in the world. It is in the heart of the African Rift that you will travel through this region surrounded by high plateaus and lakes, such as Lake Natron, where the superb pink flamingos live.
Formerly a small fishing village, the former capital of Tanzania, Dar-es-Salam, is now the largest and most populous city in the country. This teeming and cosmopolitan city has many attractions. To immerse yourself in the hustle and bustle of the city, head to Kivukoni Front near the harbor and its fish market. The city center is home to the colorful Kariakoo market, where you can get lost in the maze of goods. Just north of the market, you can see the huge and beautifully decorated Ithnasheri Shiite mosque. Far less remote than the Zanzibar archipelago, you can quickly go to the islands of Bongoyo and Mbudya, to spend the day and snorkel.
