Trotting to Tanzania

Posted on September 3, 2010 | Travel Destinations14 Comments

Think of Tanzania, Think of Safari. This synonymous approach strikes nine out of ten people (you were one of them, weren’t you?) In the whole of Africa, animal habitat over here is the best than anywhere else. Nestled in the southern part of Kenya, Tanzania is known for its natural beauties and variedness. The cultural vibrancy of this exotic destination spans from the woods of the animal kingdom, the tribal folks inhabiting small villages to the leading urban parts of Tanzania. This cultural amalgamation spread over the shiny and the rugged parts of Tanzania attributes the experience to be so unique and intriguing in its own ways.

Visiting Italy and miss the Leaning Tower of Pisa? Naa! Visting India and miss the Taj Mahal? Naa! So, how can one visit Tanzania and miss on the African Safari? Hell No! The best place to spectacle the animal kingdom is at the Serengeti National Park which is an ideal destination to take a safari trip in the heart of the grasslands of Tanzania. Also the grasslands of Mount Kilimanjaro and Ngorongoro Conservation Area is where one can spectacle the zebra and wildebeest that migrate over to the region at the time of monsoons. There are a lot of organized tours that are conducted and visitors can assign for one of them priced according to the package.

Tanzanian Culture Vulture

The Tanzanian culture can be found to be heavily attributed to many tribes thriving in the eastern part of Africa where about more than a hundred and twenty tribes live. Going and experiencing the African culture in person is a totally spectacular experience. The variedness brought about so many tribes is greatly valued and sets Tanzania apart from any other place on the map. The very well-known of all the tribes are the people of the Maasai who are basically intrigued in the activity of cattle-herding and pasteurizing their animals in the grasslands. The official languages spoken in the region are that of Swahili and even English.

    Tanzanian culture is exemplary!

  • Max Schreiner says:

    Africa is so beautiful that it is said often that-

    if nature wishes to make a mountain here, she runs a range of five hundred miles,

    If a plain, she levels eighty,if a plain she tilts five thousand feet of strata on end..
    Their skies are higher and more intensely blue, their waves are larger, rivers fiercer..

    There is nothing small or petty, or for that matter measurable in Africa!

    More so in Tanzania!

  • Daniel Stack says:

    For me Africa is more than a glamorous fact..

    It is a historical truth..

    No man can know exactly where he is going until he knows exactly where he has been..

    And exactly how he arrived at his present place..

    Thanks a lot for this post on Tanzania :-)

  • Illeana Ryle says:

  • Gilbert Zucker says:

    Africa to me is….

    Copper sun Or Scarlet Sea,

    Jungle Star or Jungle Track,

    Mighty Bronzed men or Regal black,

    Women from whose loins I sprang

    When the birds of Eden sang!

  • Lloyd Marsters says:

    All I know about Africa is that every time I go there I’m shaken to my core!

    Africa is poor because its investors and creditors are unspeakably rich.

  • Louis Cullen says:

    A genocide in Africa has not received as much attention as the genocide in Europe or the genocide in Turkey or genocide in any other part of the world..

    I feel there is still this basic kind of discrimination against African problems and African people.

    America is not civil while Africa is barbarous!

  • Bob Garvey says:

    All these boundaries Africa, Asia, Malaysia,America are set by men..

    But you don’t have to look at the boundaries when you look at a man..

    You look at his character, his sense of culture..

    And I for one am definitely proud to be born in this place which has such strong roots!

  • Jared Olajuwon says:

    What really excites me is the idea that humans had a tremendous pre-history that went back millions of years.

    I want to go to Africa and find some of the creatures!

  • Joanna Makeba says:

    God bless Africa, Guard her people, Guide her leaders,And give her peace!

    Africa with its vast deserts, wilderness, forests is truely amazing!

  • Hans Phoenix says:

    Are you there Africa with bulging chest and oblong thigh?

    Sulking Africa, whose wrought of iron is in fire,Africa of the millions of slaves,drifting Africa,are you there?

    Slowly you vanish withdraw into the past,into the tales of casteways colonial museums,the works of scholars…

    God bless Africa and her people more than anything else!

  • Brian Oppenheimer says:

    I think when you’ve traveled around a lot in Africa, you understand something that many people here don’t recognize..

    The extra-ordinary power that is Africa at village level-community level..

    I am fortunate enough to visit a lot of beautiful places around the world.the most astonishing and memorable experiences where my trip to Africa!

  • Alan O'Reilly says:

    Africa is a paradox which illustrates and highlights neo-colonialism..

    Her earth is rich, yet the products that come from above and below, continue to enrich not Africans pre-dominantly but groups and individuals who operate to Africa’s impoverishment.

    It is important to nurture any new ideas and initiative swhich can develop the face of Africa…

  • Amos Michnik says:

    Tanzania is beautiful!
