Tanzania is blessed with some of the most beautiful natural landscapes in the world. It is beautiful because of the light, colors and life in almost every scene. Tanzania is the land of safaris. Wildebeest stampede across the plains. Hippos jostle for space in muddy waterways. Elephants wander along seasonal migration routes and chimpanzees swing through the treetops. It is mountainous and densely forested in the northeast. Three of Africa's Great Lakes are partly within Tanzania: Lake Victoria, Africa's largest lake, Lake Tanganyika, the continent's deepest lake, and to the southwest lies Lake Nyasa. To the east Tanzania is humid and tropical and blessed with some of the most beautiful islands.
Below our picks of the best places to visit in Tanzania.
Tanzania is regularly identified as the African country that most values its native food. For that reason, it is a great place to sample some authentic East African delicacies.
Climate varies greatly within Tanzania. In the highlands, temperatures range between 10 and 20 °C. The rest of the country has temperatures rarely falling below 20 °C. The hottest period is from November to February and the coldest occurs between May and August. Tanzania has two major rainfall periods: short rains from October to December and longer rains from March until May. These rains aren’t as regular or as intense as they once were. It is best to avoid the two rainy seasons because many roads become inaccessible. The high season is from January until the end of September.
Most visitors to Tanzania must have visas. You can download a Tanzania visa application form here. Tourist visas are issued for a period of 90 days and at present cost in the region of $50. You can either buy your visa on arrival in Tanzania or at the embassy at home.
