Tanzania is an ideal travel destination for nature enthusiasts and lovers of a quiet holiday experience surrounded by teeming wildlife, lush green forests, and changing landscapes. But there’s so much more to this perfect holiday destination than you know. Tanzania will definitely surprise you with the facts that we’re going to tell you!
Have you ever seen a volcano on television? Well, if you visit Tanzania, you’ll get a chance to see a volcano up close! Don’t worry, though. It’s a dormant volcano.
This peak, which stands at 5,895 m above sea level, is Africa’s highest and the world’s highest freestanding mountain. But the most promising part is that you can climb this mountain and anyone with average fitness can do it!
Reaching the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro takes 5 to 10 days for a typical person of average health. The majority of the days ascending Kilimanjaro are not hard since the paths are not steep. The obstacle is coping with the elevation; nonetheless, the summit night is incredibly challenging because it is the coldest part of your journey. So make sure you’re warm!
Northern, central, and southern Kenya, as well as northern Tanzania, are home to the Maasai, a Nilotic ethnic minority. The Maasai speak the Maa language, which is connected to the Dinka, Kalenjin, and Nuer languages and belongs to the Nilotic family of languages.
With the exception of some elderly persons in remote regions, many Maasai people speak Swahili. The Maasai are well-known for drinking cow blood on significant events such as a child’s circumcision, the delivery of a newborn, and the wedding of a female. It is also administered to inebriated seniors to help them recover from their hangover.
Whether it’s grasslands, barren lands, arctic summits, wetlands, or any other landscape: Tanzania has them all! You could say that you can visit Tanzania if you want a taste of every ecological system there is! Want to see some lush green forests? Tanzania has them! In the mood for a beach day where you can enjoy delish seafood and have some drinks by the sea? Tanzania has those too!
The Great Migration is one of the best embodiments of the term ‘survival of the fittest’ and ‘the cycle of life’ where you can see a stampede of more than a million wildebeests. And it all happens in Tanzania!
1.5 million wildebeests travel through the grasslands between Tanzania and Kenya, searching hungrily for better grazing grounds with better pastures. It is full of danger as predators attack wildebeests and kill them while at the same time, thousands of calves are born to restore numbers.
A large chunk of Tanzania is National Parks, and these parks are home to rampant wildlife and stunning landscapes. From seeing endangered black rhinos to indulging in an adventurous Safari experience, Tanzania offers them all! The most famous Serengeti National Park is where the Great Migration originates, and that’s located in Tanzania too!
So book your tickets and welcome to the country full of surprises!
