"Each day in Tanzania gives you a different game viewing opportunity & David Attenborough’s voice seems to appear in your head as you see the wildlife in their natural habitat. In Tanzania you also have the opportunity to head over to Zanzibar and one I could never resist, having been a few times before – and once again it did not disappoint. From Spice Tours, exploring the small alleys of Stone Town, learning about its history, snorkelling in the incredibly clear waters, going on a sunset cruise on a dhow off the northern shores and of course some relaxation on its beautiful white sandy beaches." - Katie, UK
Mount Kilimanjiro Tours
If you are seeking a more active break consider a trek to climb Africa's highest mountain Mount Kilimanjaro which is over 5,000m tall! It might sounds a scary prospect but it is not impossible, there are plenty of safe guided tours and treks and if you have a moderate level of health and fitness you will be able to join a climbing trip.
There are lots of different tours available, we recommend a steady longer 5-10 day trek so you can aclimatize to the altitude. Seeing the sunrise from the top is a magical experience which not many people have seen but iIf this experience doesn't appeal to you could you just visit the base camp and admire the views.

"I climbed Kilimanjaro for 7 days with Impatiens Tours and it was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. From the moment I met with Yesaya and Enock to discuss the climb to the very sad farewell at the end of the trip Impatiens Tours went above and beyond to make me feel like a part of their family. If you are thinking about joining a Kilimanjaro trek I 10000% recommend Impatiens Tours Tanzania" - Dani, United States
