May 07, 2018

Do you want to go somewhere far, exotic, and luxurious all at the same time? We suggest that you explore Tanzania in East Africa. Tanzania happens to be one of the most beautiful places to visit in the continent and also has a list of some of the best tourist attractions you can find. If this will be your first time planning for the trip, don’t worry because we’re here to help you out! Here are a few travel tips to help you get around:

Where Do I Stay?

After you book your flight, this is the next thing that you have to take into consideration. When you look for accomodations, you have to ask yourself how long you’ll be staying there. Can you rough it in a bit? Or do you want somewhere comfortable? Or maybe you’d even like somewhere luxurious? You can look for hotels of your preference and your budget by checking online travel websites like Trivago or Tripadvisor.

If you’re looking for an overnight stay that’s pretty affordable and very convenient, you might want to check out the Slipway Complex. They have hotels and rooms that are quite basic but comfy for a short stay.


Where Do I Visit?

Once you’ve booked your flight and your room, everything else will pretty much work out by itself. Now, you can take a look at some of the attractions there. One place that you should definitely visit is the Selous Safari. This is one of the top safaris in Tanzania. Selous Safari is known for being one of the biggest uninhabited areas in the country with only animals there to live in it. It has herds of wild elephants, wildebeests, and other jungle animals. It is also the one of the very few places in Africa where you’ll find wild dogs.

If you like forest trekking, then we suggest you pay a visit to Rubondo Island. This place is one of the very few attractions in Tanzania that isn’t crowded. This is because it’s more geared toward people who want some sort of Pirates of the Caribbean kind of adventure. Along the path, you’ll see a lot of flora and fauna, especially monkeys and chimpanzees.

Are There Beaches in Tanzania?

Since there are a lot of tropical islands in Tanzania, there are also a lot of beautiful beaches. There are beaches in the Ras Kutani Area, Zanzibar, and Pemba. You may even visit the Mafia Islands if you want a relaxing beach experience.

When Is the Best Time to Go?

There are mainly two rainy seasons in the year which are in October to December and February to April. We advise you to avoid those rainy seasons because you won’t be able to go out much. If you can’t go out, you won’t enjoy your trip. Probably the best times to go would be early January and August, so you can avoid the storms.


Are you excited for your Tanzania trip? Well, you should be because it’s going to be a lot of fun! However, you should make sure to plan your trip well so you can enjoy it to the max. Use these tips to know how to navigate your way through the country and have a lot of fun.
