Popular Destinations in Tanzania

Dar es Salaam

Tanzania's commercial port, Dar es Salaam, is one of the fastest-growing cities in Africa. It also hosts one of the largest populations in East Africa, with almost 4.4 million people residing there.

The city mixes influences of African, Indian and Arab cultures, creating a diversity that is well worth visiting.

Be sure to head to the Botanical Gardens and the gorgeous beaches; even spending just a day here is worthwhile.


Unguja, also known as Zanzibar Island, is the main island in the Tanzanian archipelago of Zanzibar.

The beaches here are first class, with vast stretches of fine white sand and crystal clear waters, perfect for swimming and relaxing.

Pemba Island is the smallest of the two and is known for its lush rolling hills and gorgeous green countryside, great for hiking and exploring.

The Pemba Channel separates the island from mainland Tanzania and contains tremendous coral reefs teeming with fascinating marine life, making it a hotspot for scuba divers and snorkelers.


A city in southwest Tanzania, it is located between the Mbeya and Poroto mountain ranges.

On the town's outskirts sit Lake Ngozi, a large crater lake within condensed foliage and forest, perfect for wildlife watching.

Mbeya is also a hub for farming and exporting coffee, tea, bananas, and cocoa.


The town in northern Tanzania is the gateway to Kilimanjaro National Park, Moshi. Home to Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, be sure to try scaling this enormous challenge.

The surrounding forests have incredible wildlife like leopards, elephants and fascinating birds.

Moshi is also known for its coffee farms; visit one and try some rich, local coffee straight from the source.

Travel Risks in Tanzania

Tanzania is a reasonably safe country. Be cautious when getting a taxi; only take them from established taxi ranks or hotels. Do not enter the vehicle if there is somebody else other than the driver in there.

Be wary of people on the street conversing with you or pretending to know you; this can lead to scams.

You are advised not to participate in political protests or demonstrations, as these can often turn violent and end in police presence, resulting in arrest.

Keep your valuables close to you, preferably under loose-fitting clothing against your skin, as pickpockets can often operate in places frequented by tourists.
