Tanzania is famously known for its fascinating wildlife, serene landscapes, pristine beaches and rich culture. There are several unique activities that you can only experience in Tanzania. From wildebeest migrations to historical ruins, you get the chance to visit remarkable sites and be a part of incredible experiences. Let’s take a look at some of these unique experiences in Tanzania.
The Great Wildebeest Migration
Every year, thousands of wildebeest, zebra and gazelle migrate across the plains of Serengeti in search of food. You can book a hot air balloon ride to witness the majestic views from the sky. The migration usually happens during the months of May to June. During their journey, they have to face and survive some wild predators, including crocodiles, cheetahs, hyenas, wild dogs, lions and leopards. It’s a wonder to see nature in action during this migration, which is best witnessed from the top.
Game Viewing in a Hot Air Balloon
Apart from wildebeest migration, you can observe various other wildlife from the aerial view. You will create many wonderful memories with your family and friends while on this exhilarating ride. The views from the sky are spectacular and breathtaking. Not to mention, you can witness a wide variety of animals from a safe distance.
Flamingos at Lake Natron
Lake Natron is a saltwater lake situated in the northern Ngorongoro District of the Arusha Region. It is a shallow lake about three meters deep and is a haven for unique microorganisms that make the water look pinkish-red. The microorganisms also serve as food for the beautiful flamingos, which are a sight to witness here.
Swimming with Dolphins at Kizimkazi
Dolphins are intelligent, fun and social water creatures. During your visit to Tanzania, you will have the chance to swim and interact with the dolphins. The calm and clear waters around Kizimkazi Island provide the perfect environment for this fun leisure activity.
Interacting with Chimps at the Gombe National Park
The small and intimate Gombe Stream National Park, located in Kigoma, is perfect for chimpanzee trekking activity. You will find a community of Kasakela chimpanzees near the southern shores of Lake Tanganyika, where you can spend time with the chimps in their natural habitat. This is also the park where Jane Goodall conducted her behavioural research on chimps.
Olduvai Gorge Museum
The Olduvai Gorge is one of the famous archeological sites in East Africa. The museum is near the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, on the edge of the Olduvai Gorge. Mary Leakey, a British paleoanthropologist, in the late 1970s found it. The Olduvai Gorge Museum houses historical artifacts, charts and maps and is dedicated to appreciating the site’s history.
