Tourism in Tanzania

Tourism in Tanzania is increasingly becoming significant to the country’s economy since the country has various internationally popular tourist destinations (Kweka, Morrissey, & Blake, 2003). It’s the home to some of Africa’s famous national parks and natural attractions. Tanzania has ventured into safaris and wildlife-related adventures for its tourists. Tourists tend to go on safaris and pass through Dar-es-Salaam to the country’s wilderness and other areas. Tourists who escape winter in their countries will enjoy the beautiful Zanzibar beaches (Kweka, Morrissey, & Blake, 2003). The highest mountain in Africa is Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, and tourists will visit there to stand in awe of the elegant snowcapped majestic mountain. The mountain can also be climbed during the summer season between late June and October. The mountain’s highest point is known to be “one of the seven summits of the world.”

Tanzania has the second largest park, known as the Serengeti national park, which has millions of wild animals that pass through the vast treeless plains to search for fresh grasslands. The national park is popularly known for its annual wildebeest migration. The migration comprises the wildebeest, zebras and gazelles. During the migration, more than 1.5 million animals migrate annually, either in May or in early June. The park has more than 500 bird species, and the Big Five are also found in the park.

The beautiful beaches of Zanzibar are also significant tourist destinations in the country. The Island is also known as Spice Island, and the locals will also call it Unguja. Zanzibar archipelago is known to have some of the best beaches globally, with its historical city of Stone town commonly for townhouses of the Arabs, narrow valleys, and a busy port is at the heart of the Island.

The government and private firms and individuals have invested in establishing exceptionally beautiful hotels to accommodate both the local and international tourists. Some of these hotels are the Wag Hill Lodge and spa, owned by the multi-cable company, and the kunduchi wet n wild watermark, which is the biggest in both East and Central Africa. The wet ‘n’ wild offers diverse acres in more than six acres of land, including water slides that include six-story water slides.
