Helpful Info for Your Tanzania Tour

If there is a country that exemplifies the icons of East Africa, it is Tanzania. The towering heights of Kilimanjaro, the masses of wildlife across the open savannas, the beaches and waters of Zanzibar - nowhere else do the gems of Africa lie so close together and offer the traveler such opportunity to experience their splendor. For those seeking to survey some of the sights and experiences that have spread the renown of Africa around the world, there is nowhere like Tanzania.

This country of just under one million square kilometers is home to a diverse range of linguistic, religious, and ethnic groups, and indigenous traditions remain strong. It has the largest population of any country is East Africa, yet with one third of this population living in its capital Dar es Salaam, the rest of the country is the most sparsely populated of the region. Full of conservation areas that teem with wildlife and traditional people, Tanzania continues to offer a window into nature and culture that few other countries in Africa can claim. Over one hundred languages are spoken by over 150 people groups in Tanzania, the most of any country in Africa, and this rich diversity is mirrored by its abundant wildlife and varied landscapes. A visit to this mesmerizing country offers a lifetime’s worth of learning, memories and adventure. From the tallest peaks, to the deepest lakes, to the most abundant wildlife, Tanzania is a land of greatness.

Tanzania tours have innumerable options that usually takes several general forms: the wildlife safari, the photo safari, the Kilimanjaro climb, and cultural interaction. We are proud to offer these options, each of them being customized to suit your needs. In addition, options are available to explore the beaches of the Swahili Coast and Zanzibar, the “Spice Island”. Of course, many travelers opt to combine several of these into an even more enjoyable and educational experience!

The safari landscape is divided into two regions along the Great Rift Valley: the Northern Circuit and the Southern Circuit. The Northern is the more commonly traveled, featuring both small (Arusha and Tarangire) and large (Ngorongoro and the famed Serengeti) conservation areas. These are the safari experiences the world raves about, and an international traveler’s dream that draws adventurers from every corner of the planet. The Great Migration of over two million head of wildebeest, zebra and gazelles across northern Tanzania and Southern Kenya is one of nature’s most powerful ongoing displays!

The Southern Circuit, on the other hand, includes Selous, Ruaha and other areas that make up some of the largest and oldest conserved areas in Africa! Diverse in their wildlife and excursion offerings, they also boast some of the densest elephant populations on the continent. Better quality roads, fewer crowds and vast tracts of land make this area’s activities, especially walking safaris, set it apart from the offerings of the north. Whether you’re in search of more adventurous or luxurious amenities, there is an outstanding Tanzania safari tour for you on the Southern Circuit.

Whether on the Northern Circuit or the Southern, photographers everywhere dream of the chance to capture the Big Five (elephant, rhino, Cape buffalo, lion, and leopard) on film. Thankfully, these majestic creatures once sought more after by big game hunters are now gaining more protection by law, and Global Basecamps is thrilled to offer photo safaris as part of our assortment of Tanzania safari tours.

The highest peak in Africa and tallest freestanding mountain in the world, Kilimanjaro is the most accessible of the world’s Seven Summits. It requires no technical climbing, and its Uhuru Peak (5,895m/19.341ft) is summited by dedicated novice climbers many times every year. With six routes up “Kili”, we have selected those offering the best chances for you to stand on “The Roof of Africa”, ticking a tremendous accomplishment off your bucket list! Passing through several biomes and plant communities on your way to the high elevation ice fields and glaciers offers stunning views of the lowlands, and a celebrated part of the adventure to the top.

Tanzania has over 120 ethnic groups within its boundaries, the highest of any African country and the second highest in the entire world! Over 100 hundred languages are spoken, and many of these groups still retain a large portion of their traditional ways of life. Three general categories can be used to describe the heritage of these diverse and beautiful people: hunter-gatherers, farmers and pastoralists. Examples of the most ancient traditions – that of the hunter-gatherers - live on in the Hadzabe and Datoga of the Lake Eyasi region. In contrast, the pastoralist Maasai (of the northern plains areas) and farmer Chagga (of Kilimanjaro slopes) represent cultures more widespread among Tanzania’s traditional peoples, with livestock and crop cultivation being much more commonly practiced. All of the tribes named take part in the travel industry, and we work with operators striving towards to best practices in cultural tourism.

While the inland areas of Tanzania offer the quintessential safari tours that Africa travel is known for, the magic doesn’t stop there: the coast has much to dream of as well! The Arab influence of the narrow strip of land extending from northern Kenya through Tanzania to Mozambique is sheer delight, from dress to music to food. From the sailing dhows, Taraab music and spice farms of Zanzibar, to the swaying palms of the beaches outside Dar Es Salaam, the Swahili Coast is a perfect place to enjoy delicious seafood, learn about African seafaring culture, and rest and renew your mind and body.

No matter the adventure you’re seeking, Tanzania has it, ready and waiting. There is no end to the variety and richness of experiences at hand in this most interesting of African countries, and we are here to help bring them to life for you. Wonderful Tanzania is calling your name!
