Tanzania is the treasure of East Africa. There is plenty to do if you want to explore it in its full capacity. From learning more about the herb plantations to drinking the local tea and taking a boat trip from the shores of the Indian Ocean, the charm of Tanzania seems to be endless. The country borders with Burundi, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west; Kenya and Uganda to the north; and Malawi, Zambia, and Mozambique to the south.
Each era Tanzania has gone through has left its mark upon the culture of the locals. This is apparent even today when visiting any of the archipelagos that belong to it. A tranquil paradise, Tanzania is rich in natural wonders. Almost 30% of the country is covered in National Parks. During The Great Migration over 2 million animals make their way to the country looking for pasture. In certain areas such as the Ngorongoro Crater, you can see the Great Five in their natural habitat. Tanzania is a must-see place, especially for the outdoor enthusiasts. Mount Kilimanjaro, standing 5,895 meters above sea level, graces the country as the tallest African mountain. If you are planning to visit the country to explore the cultural side of it, you have an adventure awaiting ahead of you. There is a lot that the locals can teach travellers - the best of all would probably be the art of slow living and cultural appreciation.
