When you consider that Tanzania was the place that the earliest human fossil was discovered, you would agree that it is blessed with rich human history. Being the oldest region to be occupied by humans is not the only thing it is known for.
Tanzania also boasts of lots of exotic birds and wild animals, which is why people who love safaris love trouping to the region. And this is not to mention that has the highest mountain in Africa can be found there.
Taking a safari tour to Tanzania is such a great idea because you will love every bit of your stay. But just as with everything in life, you need to plan your movement to have a memorable stay over there.
Things you should do first:
Get to visit top attractions
There are so many fun places to visit while in Tanzania. Some of the places you should consider paying a visit to first are Mount Kilimanjaro with its active volcanic mountain and cones. Others are Ngongoro Conservation Area, Serengeti National Park, Ruaha National Park, Pemba Island amongst many other interesting places good for touring. While at it, you may also check Bongoyo Island, Lake Manyara National Park, House of Wonders and Lake Victoria.
Engage a good tour guide and look for the right tour package
There are many African safari tour company options in Tanzania who take it upon themselves to put together safari packages to meet with the unique preferences of the tourists and visitors. It is important that you choose the best tour guide company with a safari package that is just right for you. If after searching and you cannot find a package that suits you, you can ask the tour guides to put together something unique for you. Tour guides come in handy when you are in a new country. They are not just useful in helping you explore the country and its tourist attractions, but also help to familiarize you with the local Swahili language where necessary.
Choose the best travelling season
Just like many other countries, Tanzania has wet and dry seasons at different times of the year. And the time you visit can determine how much you get to enjoy your visit. With that being said, make sure that you inquire about this with your private safari tour company. However, dry seasons are known to be the best time to take a tour of the safari. But you may also try it out during the rainy season to decide on which one suits you most.
Pack the right stuff
When you put into consideration that most of your stay in Tanzania will be spent outdoors, it is important that you think of clothing that is just right. While packing clothing that you will wear during your touring visit, make sure it is according to the rules especially those set by animal parks. When in doubt on which type of clothing to go with, always find out from your travel agent. You may also pack some binoculars and camera as well as other things that will make your tour more interesting.
