Must try food
Chipsi Mayai - Chipsi mayai is Swahili for “chips and eggs” and is a favourite comfort food in Tanzania. In its purest form it is nothing more than a french fries omelette. You may notice that french fries in Tanzania are a little different to the west – always made with fresh, hand-cut and peeled potatoes and fried to a crispy yellow.
Zanzibar pizza - Popular on the island from which it draws its name, this “pizza” is probably one of the most interesting and delicious things you will eat in Tanzania. It starts out with a sheet of dough which is then filled with onions, peppers, meat, a raw egg and maybe a slice of cheese, all wrapped up into sandwich sized pocket and then placed on the pan to fry in a puddle of oil.
Wali na Nazi - this dish is rice made with coconut milk and is a popular traditional dish. It is normally eaten with chicken, fish, meat , or curry and is the perfect creamy accompaniment.
Must do experience
Safari’s - one of the main reasons why most people visit Tanzania and the Serengeti is due to its superb wildlife. See wildlife in their natural habitat, from the plains of the Serengeti—where millions of animals trek to lush pastures every year, to the vast Selous Game Reserve and the heights of the Ngorongoro Crater rim. Enjoy the chance of enjoying the wild with a jeep service, or go all our and explore the land by horseback, hot air balloon, or on foot.
Serengeti Plains - Enjoy stunning views of the vast plains of the Serengeti from a hot air balloon. Probably only the best way to get a satisfying perspective on this gigantic region, hot air balloon rides are best done during the annual migration between the months of November through May, when the winds and weather are milder.
Hiking - Mount Kilimanjaro provides unrivaled views anywhere else in Africa, with the possible exception of Table Mountain in Cape Town. In a land of mostly flat, featureless plains, it towers over 19,000 feet with several trails giving you the chance to choose your way up. Guides are obligatory and treks can be organized, however the trek takes a good four to five days to reach the summit, though you don’t need to be super fit.
