Want to make your trip to Tanzania truly enjoyable? Whether you plan to come for two days or for ten, make sure you go to the most famous and must-visit places here. Tanzania is known for its numerous National Parks which include Ngorongoro, Tarangire, Selous, Ruaha, and Arusha. Let’s not forget Serengeti, which is famous all over the world for the greatest annual migration of wild animals, i.e., the wildebeests. There’s also Zanzibar which is quite popular for its pristine beaches.
Of course, depending on the duration of your trip, you may not be able to cover all these places. So, in this blog, we have cut the list short into five best places that will make your trip unforgettable. Let’s get started…
Tarangire National Park
This national park stands out from the rest thanks to the huge Baobab trees standing tall in the grasslands. People often go on a day trip to this enormous park as part of their safari itinerary organised by Tanzania local tour operators. The best season is typically between August and October as it is the dry season and the animals tend to group around watering holes more often at this time.
You get to watch many animals like zebras, impalas, elephants, wildebeests, and giraffes. This place is just as excellent for bird watching as it is for a walking safari. There are plenty of accommodation facilities for all types of budgets here.
Climbing up Mount Kilimanjaro
Mount Kilimanjaro has been dubbed as the highest free-standing mountain in the world. By free-standing, it is meant that Mt. Kilimanjaro is not part of a mountain range. Reaching the summit usually takes up to six days and is a more convenient climb as you don’t need special equipment or skills to do so here.
These qualities make it a popular destination for adventure-seekers and professional climbers alike. All you need is a willingness and physical fitness to make the most of your wonderful journey at the top of this majestic peak!

Ngorongoro Conservation Area
Ngorongoro, located near Serengeti, has the largest crater in the world, where hundreds of animals and birds live among the swamps. The wildlife here is highly populated, making this place the prime choice for wildlife photographers. This place is also home to the Maasai tribe that still inhabits it.
This stunning group of islands is the perfect combination of history and nature’s beauty. The beaches here are undeniably calm and beautiful – really worth visiting at least once. Its historical significance is due to its unique position in the Indian Ocean. Back in the day, this island was a trading center for its brilliant variety of spices. It was also a slave trading post centuries ago when it was under Arab rule.
Today, Zanzibar Beach Resort is a World Heritage Site where you can visit Stone Town, wonderfully constructed mosques, Sultan’s palace, spice plantations, and many such attractions. One cannot forget the beaches and the private islands like Bawe and Mnemba that offer seclusion and the feeling of being in a paradise.
Special Mention – Serengeti National Park
The Serengeti ecosystem is truly a natural wonder, hosting one of the biggest mammal migrations in the entire world. Millions of mammals like zebras and wildebeests travel north toward Kenya from here every year, migrating from the calving regions down south. Grasslands extend for hundreds of miles here making game viewing extremely easy.
Another thing to note here is that there is an abundance of the lion population here so you can watch prides of lions in their natural habitat. From zebras, dik-diks, and impalas to leopards, lions, and spotted hyenas, you can certainly get a great dose of adventure on your safari here! The ideal time to visit is between December and June, although other times of the year would not be wrong either.
