Our Top 5 Things To Do In Tanzania
The Serengeti may be Tanzania’s most well-known attraction, but there are so many other things to do and see while visiting this beautiful part of East Africa. You’re most likely already thinking of going on safari but here are a few extra activities you might have missed. We’ve included places to see, things to do, and unique regions to visit in Tanzania that will make your trip all the more adventurous and exciting.
Conquer Mount Kilimanjaro
If you’re up for an adventure, climbing Africa’s highest mountain should definitely be on your list of things to do in Tanzania. The climb up Kilimanjaro is no easy feat, you’ll test yourself against nature’s elements and push your limits, however, the view from the top is absolutely spectacular. The feeling of accomplishment gained from conquering the climb is truly fulfilling.

Careful planning and preparation. Be sure to pick the right guide, choose the best route for your capabilities, and ensure you are physically fit.
Journey with The Great Migration
The Great Wildebeest Migration is one of Tanzania’s unmissable attractions. To witness millions of animals in one place, to feel the tension and adrenaline in the air during river crossings, or to see a hunt happen in front of your eyes is something you will never forget. Here’s everything you need to know about The Great Migration.
Explore The Tropical Paradise of Zanzibar
If it’s relaxation, privacy, and an idyllic escape you’re after – then Zanzibar is where you need to be. This picturesque island retreat is the perfect place to unwind and de-stress. Turquoise-blue and warm waters fringed by palm trees and white sandy beaches await you on this tropical island – what are you waiting for?
We have three properties on Zanzibar, which cater to different groups. Our Matemwe Lodges are perfect for any kind of traveller. The Matemwe Retreat was made with couples and romantic getaways in mind. If you’re travelling with a larger group or family, then our Matemwe Beach House is just right for you.

Soar Above The Plains
Glide silently over the vast plains of Tanzania’s wildlands as they teem with herds of wildlife below. Typically, a balloon safari begins at the break of dawn and lasts for one to two hours. The experience provides you with a truly unique opportunity to experience Africa from the skies. After your descent, you’ll be treated to a fabulous champagne breakfast in the bush, a fitting end to a memorable flight in the wild and the perfect way to start any day in Africa.
If you need any more motivation, here are our top reasons to book a Hot-air Balloon Safari and what it’s all about.
Venture South into the Unknown
Join us in the wilds of Southern Tanzania in the unspoiled, secluded wilderness of Ruaha National Park and the UNESCO World Heritage site, The Selous. Both of these regions are lesser-known compared to the more famous regions of Tanzania, yet they offer just as much in terms of diversity and rich experiences. The region offers all of the usual safari experiences as well as many more activities including boating safaris and fishing, night game drives, walking safaris, exceptional birding, and more.
