Unlike Zanzibar Islands Tanzania mainland offers affordable accommodations on the shore of Indian Ocean. The long coasts of Tanzania’s mainland are not regularly visited compared to its sister islands of Mafia Island, Pemba and Zanzibar just off the shaore of Indian Ocean. Reasons for this might be that it is relatively unknown and the long time to travel by road from Tanzania’s northern national parks and the game reserves in the south. Slowly but surely, the northern Swahili coast with its palm-fringed beaches are developing; Bagamoyo and Pangani especially being the main attractions.

What To Do On The Tanzanian Coast?.

Apart from swimming and water activities such as diving, snorkeling, sailing and surfing, you can also visit the Sadaani National Park for a change from sun-filled days at the beach. The park offers game drives, boat trips and walking tours. Those interested in history and culture, would love Tanga and Bagamoyo with its architectural ruins and history of German and Arab influences. The coast south of Dar es Salaam also has some luxurious resorts and a few smaller hotels. These lay directly on the warm Indian Ocean, perfect for resting away from the maddening crowds.

You can extend your stay to Zanzibar?

Zanzibar has something for everyone even for those who get bored to be in one place for just overnight these places have it all. The day trips to nearby islands and coral reefs are arranged by many hotels and local tour operators. Tanzania adventures organize scuba diving, dolphin tours, walking in Jozani forest, historical tour in stone town, spice tours and snorkeling on the serenity islands beach. We have on offer other water sports including kayaking, boat sailing and deep sea fishing in Zanzibar and to the remote Mafia and Pemba Island.

The temperature in the islands is usually humid and warm to hot all year around which also affect the climate in the coast of Tanzania mainland of Bagamoyo and Dar es Salaam. It is by this friendly weather condition Zanzibar attracts the number of visitors o visit the islands.

Zanzibar is reached by many international and internal airlines and you can fly in and our most at any time of your schedule. When booking a flight to Zanzibar you will land on Zanzibar International Airport (also called Abeid Amani Karume International Airport) (code: ZNZ). There are many boats to and from Zanzibar connect the islands with Dar es Salaam and Tanga in the mainland.

I booked a 7 days Machame route ascent to Mt. Kilimanjaro with Serengeti Joy Tours. Everything was fine. Madam Angelica was very responsive on Whatsapp, all went smoothly according to the agreement. My guide, Henry, was perfect as well as all the crew. Food was perfect, there was enough of the water, tent was comfortable, all the team tried hard to make my trip comfortable.

This experience with Serengeti Joy Tours was nothing short of spectacular. Our team was made up of Frank(y) (primary guide), Francis (secondary guide), Shedrack (our chef, Moses (our waiter), and 10 solid porters who worked hard and were delightful to encounter. Frank was an awesome lead guide, always laughing and bringing humor into the mix, even when some times were tough (altitude sickness). He was adaptable and knew how to manage every situation. Both Franky and Francis were very

Angelica was a pleasure to work with from the beginning. She was attentive to our needs, highly flexible and easy to communicate with. The trip was very well planned especially given our time constraints. The 7 day lemosho hike was a success, reaching Uhuru Peak.

This year I decided to celebrate my birthday by taking a challenge and that was to climb Mt Kilimanjaro. The idea came 6 months back & accordingly I prepared myself. I made my plan in such a way so that I reached the summit on 21st June 2017 (my birthday).
