Places To Visit In Tanzania After Covid-19 Pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic, touring the world has been challenging and unsafe this year. Don’t freight, and we hope for a better next year; coronavirus-free year. However, it doesn’t stop us from making plans ahead of time. So, if you ever thought of visiting Africa, Tanzania, should be
on the list of countries to see in Africa. Before we continue, you need to know (if you don’t already) that Africa is a continent and not a country! We won’t be getting into that now, let’s focus on TANZANIA!
Tanzania is a beautiful country, home to some of Africa’s famous parks and natural attractions. If you need a breather from the city’s noise and concrete walls, here are the exotic places to visit in Tanzania:
Mount Kilimanjaro is Tanzania’s most iconic image; it is Africa’s highest peak and the country’s national Park. However, it is not visited for the wildlife, but to marvel at the beautiful snow- capped mountain.
It is a World Heritage Site and was formed over one million years ago by volcanic movement along the Rift Valley. Besides, three volcanic cones known as Shira, Kibo, and Mawenzi are 750,000 years old, and the highest point is Uhuru Peak on Kibo, which is one of the seven summits of the world.
Also, you can climb at any time, but it is best done in the dry season, which is usually around late June to October. So visit Mount Kilimanjaro if you want to climb to the summit. Furthermore, Kilimanjaro rises from farmland on the lower level to the rainforest and alpine meadow and then barren lunar landscape at the peaks. Moreover, the rainforest slopes are home to elephants, leopards, buffaloes, monkeys and eland. In addition, the alpine area is where bird watchers find a lot of birds of prey.
If staring at the beauty of the iconic Kilimanjaro isn’t your thing, or you don’t want to get to the summit, and you prefer to relax and stare at the colorful beaches, you should check out Zanzibar beach.
The island of Zanzibar or Unguja is a famous holiday destination in Tanzania, especially the part of Zanzibar archipelago, which consists of the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba. The island has some of the best beaches in the world. You will find soft white sand, clear shallow water, and traditional boats lining in the shore.
Mafia here has nothing to do with an organized international body of criminals. It is the historical city of Stone Town, famous for its Arabian townhouses, busy port, narrow alleyways and the island is located in the heart of Zanzibar.
If you are a diver or a snorkeler, Mafia Island will meet your exhilarating hobby! Also, it allows you to meet with other divers and snorkelers around the world. It is an excellent location for deep-sea fishing, like marlin, tuna, and other big-game fish.
Mafia Island is home to different types of fish, countless birds and it has coral gardens. It is a traditional breeding site for the green turtle, which are endangered. However, the undersea world is under the protection of the Mafia Island Marine Park. So, if this is what you want, the best months for diving are October to March. However, the best weather on Mafia Island is May to October.
Serengeti National Park
The list won’t be complete without adding the Serengeti National Park! It is a vast treeless plain and home to millions of animals and 500 beautiful species of birds. It is known for the annual wildebeest migration, but you can see the Big Five in the Serengeti Park.
The Serengeti Park is the second-largest National Park in Tanzania, no wonder it attracts tens of thousands of tourists every year. The awesome times to view wildlife in the Serengeti are between December and June. The wet season is from March to May, and the coldest is between June to October.
Furthermore, the annual migration of over 1.5 million wildebeest and hundreds of thousands of gazelle and zebra takes is in May or early June; it is one of the most impressive natural events and the primary reasons for tourists to grace the Serengeti.
