The question that no tourist “dares” to ask a Zanzibar tour guide

Most people who travel to Zanzibar only view this island as an exotic paradise, where they could swim, sunbathe, snorkel, and taste tropical fruits and seafood dishes all day long. Of course, there are also other things to do, for example, visiting Stone Town by foot (the old capital, where Freddie Mercury was born), fishing & cooking with the locals, and swimming with the dolphins or turtles, but most tourists don’t “dare” to dream further when it comes to their vacation on the island in the Indian Ocean.

However, if you choose the right travel agency, for example, Zanzibar Tour Guide, the impossible becomes possible. The question we referred to in the title of the article is the following: “Do you also organize excursions to mainland Tanzania?”. The above-mentioned company, with over 18 years of experience, very professional guides and drivers, and guaranteeing 100% security, also offers tours to mainland Tanzania. Here are just a few of them:

  1. Serengeti National Park. This is one of the most famous destinations not only in Tanzania, but also from all over Africa, with tourists crowding to see the 1.5 million blue wildebeest, 250.000 zebras, and the largest lion population on the continent, which migrate here every year. In this national park, whose name literally translates to “the place where the land runs on forever”, you can also see leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, jackals, African bush elephants, African buffalos, black rhinos, caracals, and East African dogs, according to Zanzibar Tour Guide;
  1. Tarangire National Park. The company also includes the Tarangire national park in its offer, with its 2.850 square kilometers of land occupied mostly by elephants and baobab trees. Giraffes, different species of antelopes, and monkeys, together with the fabulous landscape, make this experience an unforgettable one, both literally and figuratively. If you stay in Zanzibar, you don’t have to worry about transportation as the agency will provide hotel pick up and drop off;

  1. Lake Manyara. Zanzibar Tour Guide also takes you to Lake Manyara, situated in Northern Tanzania, famous for the numerous species of birds and fish populating it and its surroundings. The safari consists of a complete loop around the lake (with an area of 230.5 sq km), in a jeep, taking a few hours. The Rift Valley provides a spectacular background, voted by many as the most beautiful landscape on the entire continent;
  1. Mikumi National Park. Last but not least, the Mikumi safari is one of the most complex tours offered by Zanzibar Tour Guide. According to their website, it takes 3 days and 2 nights: on the first day, you’ll get from Zanzibar City to Dar es Salaam (Tanzania’s old capital), and then on a 6-7 hours jeep ride to the Masai village, you will spend the next day completely in the natural park, while on the third day, you’ll get back. Mikumi is home to numerous lions, zebras, impalas, buffalos, wildebeest, giraffes, elephants, baboons, kudus, and many others.

In conclusion, by choosing a professional tourist company, you’ll make the most of your stay in Africa, relaxing under the sun, but also admiring the local flora and fauna, in all their splendor.
