Ask anyone to define their idea of Africa, and most will probably describe Tanzania.
Firstly, there’s The Serengeti. This famous national park is filled with wild animals, among them Africa’s ‘big five’. Go on a thrilling safari for the chance to see lumbering elephants, migrating wildebeest, sunbathing hippos, or packs of lions chasing their prize.
It’s fair to say The Serengeti attracts the lion’s share of visitors, but there are more national parks further off the beaten path. Head to Tanzania’s extreme west to track chimpanzees in their natural habitat, or to the Ngorongoro Crater, home to Africa's most concentrated population of land mammals.
Then there’s Tanzania’s 800 km stretch of gorgeous coastline, along which countless ivory-white beaches and sleepy fishing villages are strewn. Relax here or hop over to the country’s other great attraction: the island of Zanzibar, brimming with yet more sublime beaches.
To top it all off, climb snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro, which towers over the continent at a staggering height of 5,895 metres, or Mount Meru, its so-called ‘little sister’, for an easier ascent. Tanzania has a good tourism infrastructure, so there’s no shortage of hotels and private apartments, especially in the ancient trading capital, Dar es Salaam, and on Zanzibar. You’ll find more hotels, as well as campsites and eco-lodges within the national parks.
The staff were superb. Exceptionally helpful and friendly. The location is perfect for exploring Stone Town, but only a short drive from Zanzibar airport. The hotel overlooks the sea and it's a great place to people watch, take photos of sunsets and dhows and watch local lads play beach football and show off their acrobatics. The hotel itself is amazing. I felt as though I were staying in a museum. If you enjoy history and culture, it's a very unique place.
everything was amazing.
excellent food. rooms are spacious and comfortable.
staff are sooooo helpful and kind!!!
the resort is breathtakingly beautiful and theres a lot of activities to do.
i would go back in a heartbeat.
also the hotel gave us a double massage and a romantic dinner in the blue vanilla restaurant as a gift for our honeymoon.
