The most famous parks are situated in the north of Tanzania. These parks offer the best chance of witnessing wild animals in their natural habitat. All of these parks have their own unique characteristics and attractions. The main attractions are listed below:
bs. The name Colobus is derived from the Latin language meaning mutilated one, as they do not possess a thumb.
Tourism is less well-developed in the southern and western regions of Tanzania than it is in the north. If it is solitude, tranquillity and peace of mind you are looking for, you may prefer to visit these regions. This part of Tanzania truly is paradise for anyone who wants to experience what it must have been like to be an explorer. We feel that it is only right to warn you that the game in these areas is less used to interactions with humans and can be slightly more shy. Furthermore, due to the vastness of the area, in contrast with the north, taking a domestic flight may sometimes be necessary.
At 5895m, Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa’s highest peak, rising above the East African plains. It is also the highest free-standing mountain in the world and one of the highest peaks you can scale without technical expertise. As a high altitude mountain close to the equator, Kilimanjaro kicks up plenty of surprises. Few other treks in the world offer rainforests with primates and game, alpine pastures, high moolands of giant eerie plantlife and snow fields at the summit.
Tanzania can be visited year round and the climate varies considerably considering depending on where you are. When asking when the best time to travel is, this will greatly depend on what you want to experience. Generally the main rainy season (long rains) last during March, April & May. This consists of an afternoon tropical downpour – they get heavier the closer you are to the coast and on the islands. The humidity during these months is high and temperatures are in the low 30s. The second rainy season is in November and December and this is considered the ‘short’ rainy season, as the rain is much lighter and less frequent.
The dry season is from June – October.
