Select city
Tanzania is easy to travel in and has an excellent tourist infrastructure in place. There’s no lack of hotels, good restaurants, helpful safari guides or anything else you might need. Just strap on your backpack (or grab your suitcase) and go.

Most trips to Tanzania will begin in Dar es Salaam, a chilled out coastal city where cows in the streets compete with honking minibuses. It’s not a major tourist destination, but Dar is the perfect place to get to know the Africa you can’t see from a safari van. A mesh of Arabic, Indian and African influences makes it visually interesting; the friendly locals make it fun.

If you’re planning to go on safari to one of Tanzania’s incredible national parks, Arusha will be your base. This city is the launching pad for safaris of almost any length, and for treks up Mount Kilimanjaro. Shop around for the best deals on both – Arusha has plenty to offer. To maximise your chances of seeing of hippos, wildebeests, elephants and more, head to Serengeti National Park for a few days.

Tanzania’s beaches are the perfect place to recover from a trek up Kilimanjaro. Sipping an ice-cold drink on one of the country’s beautiful coastlines, watching wooden dhows sail by in the distance, is paradise. What could be better than that? Perhaps a trip to Zanzibar, where the picture-perfect beaches compete with beautiful historic buildings and small alleyways of Stone Town.

Getting further outside the most tourist-heavy areas will give you a chance to meet Tanzania’s captivating peoples. The Maasai are the most noticeable, wrapped in their cloaks, but there are a number of other distinctive tribes.

City guides

Dar es Salaam has long been a gateway to the country’s many awe-inspiring attractions, including its pristine beaches, exciting game parks and Mount Kilimanjaro. Now it’s becoming a destination in its own right as greater numbers of tourists take flights to Dar es Salaam to explore its history, natural stunning beauty, restaurants and beaches. So give yourself plenty of time to wander around what is becoming one of Africa’s most exciting city destinations.
