The beautiful plains of Tanzania appeal to even the most introverted of people. Whether you like to learn about new cultures, or whether you want to just sit back and relax, Authentic African Safaris will help plan the vacation of your dreams.

        Tanzania offers places that range from being able to interact with the locals to being able to just spend some quality time at the beach, all of which can be organized for you. Here are a couple of the attractions that makes Tanzania a wonderful holiday destination:

  • The highest free-standing mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, is one for any adventurer to climb. Experience snow in Africa, at 5,895 meters high!

  • There are the chimpanzees of Gombe and Mahale National Park, which is also home to the world famous Jane Goodall Chimpanzee Research Center.

  • Lakes Victoria, Tanganyika, and Nyasa, the three largest freshwater lakes in Africa to go visit. Lake Tanganyika is also the deepest freshwater lake in Africa, and the second largest lake by volume in the world.

  • There are over 100 distinct tribes in Tanzania, to which local visits are both allowed and encouraged. It’s a wonderful and new way to learn about the diversity that Tanzania encompasses.

  • The “Spice Island” of Zanzibar is the quintessential example of the East Indian coastline, providing many magazine worthy beaches, amazing diving areas as well as the chance to swim with wild dolphins, and many mysterious medieval ruins. In addition to its history with the slave trade, Zanzibar offers a different perspective on how slaves lived back in the day, worthy of any history junkie to visit.

       Most people can argue, that going on a safari is much different to visiting a zoo. At Authentic African Safaris, we can help you plan a vacation that fits your needs.
