Best Places to Visit in Tanzania
It may be just a little bit more than twice the size of California, but it delivers more bang for buck than a dozen countries put together. Well, for one, it has Africa’s highest mountain, the magnificent snow-capped Kilimanjaro, with its myriad ways up to the peak. Then there is the largest concentration of animals per square kilometre, over 4 million at last count, roaming that pre-eminent natural wonder of the world, the Serengeti (also the stage for the Wildebeest Migration). This is the land that spawned the quaint dugongs 55 million years ago, which eventually evolved into Tanzania’s magnificent wild elephants, and the earliest human skull was unearthed in the Olduvai Gorge, giving you an idea of how ancient this patch of earth is. To top all these superlatives, visit Chumba Island, Zanzibar, to feast on the Coconut Crab, the largest side-scuttler in the world and reportedly the most delicious.
