Leave the iPad and Xbox at home because they will come in second while on vacation in an ultimate bucket list destination like Tanzania. Not only does this easily-accessible country see the majestic Great Migration move through the vast plains of the Serengeti, it is also home to the unique environment of the Ngorongoro Crater, northern Tanzania’s Tarangire National Park, and Africa’s largest reserve, Selous Game Reserve. In absolute contrast, the white sand beaches of Zanzibar offer the perfect beach compliment to a bush safari and give families the opportunity to be thrilled from sunrise to sunset.
Tanzania is exceptional all year round so while some months of the year are more crowded and others experience some rain-fall, a trip can be planned at any time of year.
Our recommended activities in Tanzania:
* Head to the white sand beaches of Zanzibar for rest and relaxation, diving coral reefs and exploring Stone Town (a UNESCO World Heritage Site).
* Visit Africa’s largest reserve, Selous Game Reserve, which is teeming with wildlife and sees far less tourists.
* Enjoy cultural experiences like a visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a non-profit trust started in 1977, and take a tour of Karen Blixen’s House and Museum.
