What To Do In Tanzania

View a Map of Tanzania

Check out these articles from the Globetrooper Team in this country:

Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa, bordered by Kenya and Uganda to the north; Rwanda, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west, and Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique to the south.

A land of geographical extremes, Tanzania houses the highest peak (Mount Kilimanjaro), the lowest point (the lake bed of Lake Tanganyika), and a portion of the largest lake (Lake Victoria, shared with Uganda and Kenya) on the African continent.

The best time to visit the Serengeti is January to February. It is usually at this time that huge herds of Wildebeest, Zebra and Buffalo migrate to better grazing areas. At this period you could observe some of the 1.5 million Wildebeest that inhabit the Serengeti to undertake their epic journey. Be advised this is most likely the hottest time of year in Tanzania, when even the locals complain about the heat.

We travelled to Tanzania in December 2008 to climb Mount Kilimanjaro, and what a life-changing experience we had. If you're thinking of tackling the highest mountain in Africa, read up on the different routes you can take as well as some handy tips that we wish we knew beforehand.
