BUSH & BEACH TOURS IN TANZANIA

Are You Planning A Bush & Beach Holiday In Tanzania? Scroll Down...

Tanzania is a spectacularly salient country with a varied landscape and a truly stunning ecological diversity of flora and fauna, from avian, terrestrial to marine. With all that Tanzania has to offer, it is understandable that you might find it challenging to choose between the many incredible experiences she has to offer. You could choose a bush safari vacation in Tanzania that is packed with distinct adventure experiences of viewing wildlife in their natural surroundings. Or you could choose the underwater marine life viewing excursion of snorkeling or scuba diving combined with watersports like sailing, kitesurfing, jet-skiing, wakeboarding, windsurfing, deep sea fishing, wakeboarding and more. Then again, you could opt for a castaway escapade on Tanzania’s turquoise shores, simply enjoying the tranquility and relaxation. Or you could spend time exploring her rich cultural heritage in the historical and cultural edifices, ancient ruins and so much more. At AfricanMecca Safaris, we can understand that you might not know where to begin your planning of your dream trip. Accordingly, we have for you a selection recommended destinations and cherry-pick accommodations based on your preferences so you can explore Tanzania to your heart's desire. We will only request that you put together a bucket list of the experiences you wish to have, and we will tailor an itinerary for your Tanzania bush and beach travels that inspires to your tastes. We will customize your tour so you can decide where to spend more time e.g. in the bush or at the seaside. Or, you could spend an equal amount of time on both experiences.

Longer Tanzania Safari Combined With A Short Beach Holiday

You could have set your heart on a bush adventure going on game drives viewing diverse wildlife, or on safari walks to explore the flora and smaller fauna and insects that are equally vital to the ecology. You might also plan on camping out under the stars and enjoying meals in the bush. If this is your primary interest, then we can arrange for you to spend a longer safari of five to eight days in off-beat wildernesses of Tanzania. Witness one of nature's most awesome phenomena, the Great Migration thundering across the Serengeti Plains, or in Selous Game Reserve watching majestic lions, wild dogs and herds of elephants, lumbering by the riverine of the Rufiji. Combine it with Ngorongoro Crater, a natural Eden teeming with wildlife or the unforgiving Katavi wilderness. If you are an avian aficionado, we can organize a twitcher trip to the Tarangire, offering half of Tanzania’s 1100 bird species. You could also view with fascination, hundreds to thousands of flamingos on the soda lakes of Tanzania like Manyara and even more in Natron where they feed on the blue-green algae in the waters of the lakes.
An AfricanMecca trip to the Mahale Mountains or Gombe in Western Tanzania will treat you to not just the sight of wild chimpanzees amidst the serenity of the highlands and Lake Tanganyika but also its unique forest and smaller fauna that thrive there. After the adventures of the bush, we will passage you the coastal towns of Tanzania where you can spend the remaining three or four days of your dream holiday in Africa. If you prefer to spend these days relaxing after the demands of a classic safari regime, we will arrange for your stayovers at a private island or an intimate, secluded seaside where you can recuperate with spa treatments that will calm sore muscles and allow you a bit of pampering before you return home. But if you would prefer the adventure to continue on the aquatic side too, we can organize an underwater safari to explore the marine life by scuba diving or snorkeling. Other water activities are kayaking, kitesurfing, sailing, wakeboarding, windsurfing or even angling in one of the designated deep sea locations off the coast of Tanzania.

Long Stay On A Tanzania Beach Holiday Combined With A Shorter Safari Trip

A second option would be to spend ten days of your AfricanMecca vacation in Tanzania on the coast or an offshore island reveling in the distinct wonders of the Swahili settlement towns. Visit Dar es Salaam and revel in the eclectic mishmash of ethnicities that are a part of a buzzing metropolis. Tour its museums, cultural centers and edifices that will take you back to the time of Sultan Arabs, Asians and Europeans, all of which passed through here and left their mark. You could also spend some time in the beautiful archipelago of islands comprising of Pemba in the north, Mafia and Fanjove in the south and the truly magnificent Zanzibar along with a collection of smaller islands like Mnemba, Chumbe and Chapwani, each more stunning than the next, guarantying you to offer inimitable reminisces of your unforgettable tour of Africa on your return back home. Zanzibar was once an important port on the spice route and even today, you can explore its zesty spice and fruit farms where you will be truly amazed at the different varieties of seasonings and their many uses. You could visit the Jozani Forest to view rare primates like Kirk’s red colobus or wander through the narrow, labyrinth alleyways of Stone Town in the footsteps of the Swahilis.
But the highlight of your coastal trip in Tanzania will be the reefs with their stunning diversity of living coral and an equally wonderful diversity of colorful marine life. Should you chance to holiday during the migration season, you might be able to view humpback whales traveling along the coast, or you could swim with whale sharks and watch these fabulous creatures as they feed on plankton. Go fishing to snag on some of the toughest fighters in the ocean such as marlins (blue, black and stripped), yellowfin, tuna, swordfish, sailfish and so many more. If you are arriving from Europe, spending the first leg of your barefoot vacation in Africa on the coast is a good plan. From here, you can fly out to the preferred reserves and parks that Tanzania is famous for and stay over at an intimate lodge or camp for three or four days before returning back to your beach resort for the remaining days. Two weeks is a good time to experience a short safari with AfricanMecca in between a beach escapade. Choose from closer safari destinations like Selous, Ruaha, Saadani or even Serengeti if you prefer, and you might even chance to encounter the Big Five on your wilderness travel in East Africa, the elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhino, a truly fitting end to an extraordinary retreat in Tanzania.
