This star destination welcomes a bulk of visitors to Africa, and for good reason– the world-famous landmarks of Mount Kilimanjaro, Serengeti National Park, and Zanzibar are all found in Tanzania. The tourism industry is firmly established and options abound for the budget-conscious to the once-in-a-lifetime extravaganza with a multitude of accommodations and activities on offer. Wildlife resources are unparalleled, with over one-third of its land dedicated to reserves and conservation areas, but don’t let this detract you from the bounty of cultural and historical experiences that beckon. Olduvai Gorge and Kalambo Falls are archeological jewels where some of the oldest homonid fossils and artifacts have been found. Savour a cup of traditionally-prepared Kilimanjaro coffee straight from the source, as you tour a coffee plantation and become versed on the production of this beloved bean. Lose yourself in the Chagga Bolt Holes, a maze of defensive trenches and subterranean chambers built for tribal warfare. Take a break from your adventures and rejuvenate under a mesmerizing canopy of banyan trees in the warm aquamarine waters at Kikuletwa Hot Springs.
