Embark on the trip of a lifetime with a break to the Serengeti National Park, one of the world’s most dramatic safari destinations. Here you can cast your eyes across open plains and grasslands and watch the world-famous Great Wildebeest Migration unfold before your eyes. This annual event sees more than two million wildebeest, zebra and gazelle wind their way across the often treacherous Mara River.
Witness the drama as wildebeest risk crocodile attacks at every step – and emerge victorious. The thundering animals travel in small herds, all surrounding the huge central herd. This intricate pattern can cover half of the Serengeti – meaning you’re never far away from the action and excitement.
For the full impact, book into a local lodge – there’s no better place to witness this stunning force of nature. Fly in to Kilimanjaro, then travel north-west towards Lake Victoria, where you’ll find many specialist tours.
More animal action can be enjoyed at neighbouring Ngorongoro Crater. This enormous Unesco-listed site is the world’s largest volcanic crater and the blue-green landscape is a stunning sight to behold.
The deep waters and lush shores are alive with zebras grazing, lounging leopards and elephants washing. This rich oasis was formed by a volcanic explosion and really showcases the harmony of nature – bringing all the wild animals together in one place.
If you’re hoping to catch a glimpse of the King of the Jungle on your trip, there’s good news. Ngorongoro Crater attracts the densest concentration of Lion prides on earth, so don’t forget your camera.
To experience the real feel of a destination, you need to sample the local cuisine. Tanzania is a cultural melting pot, with more than 120 ethnic groups creating a vibrant society serving up delicious traditional dishes.
Local delicacies vary depending on the pocket of the country you’re visiting so there’s every opportunity to savour the different tastes of Tanzania. Along the Indian Ocean coast, seafood and coconut curries dominate menus, while staples inland include grilled meat, uniquely spiced plantain, grilled corn and lip-smacking Mandazi donuts.
From witnessing all the ferocity of nature to glorious street food sunsets, there’s more to Tanzania than you think. Book a flight with flydubai to bring this all to life.
