On safari in Tanzania
From Dar es Salaam you can easily reach many of Tanzania's national parks by rental car. If you do not want to go on safari alone, you can also take a guide who will show you all the places worth seeing. Watch elephants, zebras, giraffes, lions, gnus, buffalos and much more in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tarangire National Park or Serengeti National Park. If you are driving by yourself, it is best to rent an off-road vehicle. In this manner you can make good progress even on unpaved roads.
You have a fantastic view of Kilimanjaro from Arusha. If you plan to climb the highest mountain in Africa, most tours start from Arusha. During the hike you will encounter five different climate and vegetation zones. You should be well prepared for this as the ascent will demand a lot from you. But if you dare, you are guaranteed to be thrilled!
If you want to travel from Dar es Salaam to Zanzibar, it is best to take the ferry or a flight. Immediately after your arrival you can get into your rental car and discover the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar. Drive to the beaches in Nungwi, Paje or Kiwengwa. Here you can not only relax in the sun, but you can also get active if necessary. How about a kitesurfing course, for example?
