Taking flight in the holiday paradise of Tanzania
Kilimanjaro, the “Roof of Africa”, draws nature lovers from around the world to its imposing snow-covered peak. A trek up the highest mountain in Africa has made the bucket list of many a nature and hiking enthusiast for good reason. The area around Kilimanjaro serves as the perfect starting point to discover the vast steppe landscape and the incredible wealth of animals that Tanzania boasts.
In the country’s smallest national park, Arusha National Park, you can still enjoy a good view of Kilimanjaro. At the foot of the imposing Great Rift Valley lies Lake Manyara National Park. If you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse of one of the rare tree-climbing lions. A canoe trip on Lake Manyara is also highly recommended. Nearby, you can pay a visit to the Maji Moto hot springs or the Ngorongoro crater. The latter is a wonderful natural monument in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, home to one of the biggest predator populations in Africa. Finally, you won’t want to miss out on an excursion to the Serengeti National Park, famous for its annual animal migration, and the Tarangire National Park. Absolute must-see highlights on a round trip through Tanzania.
