Tanzania Tour to Amboni Caves, just north of Tanga is one of the rewarding Africa holiday activity. Amboni caves form part of the most extensive cave system in East Africa. Amboni is famous for its eight caves which have height of about 13 meters which are supported with stalactites and stalagmites. It is essentially advised for cavers go in pairs, with a guide, as there have been fatalities when people have explored on their own. The caves are home to many bats.
River boating in Africa is magnificant and can take you past sleeping crocodiles and hippos sunning themselves with their mouths wide open, gathered in half-submerged herds. Since many visitors are familiar with traditional vehicle safari, boat safari alternatively will offers you a welcome break allowing you experience the sights and sounds of Africa’s waterways up-close and unhindered. Again its a fun-filled adventure for visitors who want to experience the vibrant underwater life of the typical Tanzania River and Ocean Coastlines.
DEEP SEA FISHING
Some of the richest sports fishing seas are to be found off the Tanzanian mainland. Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia islands, and the Kilwa coast, were the haunts of Ernest Hemingway and amongst the record breaking prizes to be caught are barracuda, kingfish, marlin, horse-mackerel, sailfish, tuna and rock cod.
DIVING AND SNORKELLING
The waters of Indian Ocean, particularly those off the mainland coast and around Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia Islands, provide superb opportunities for scuba divers. The coral reefs, teeming with colourful fish, can be explored on diving expeditions for both beginners and experts. Encounters with dolphins and turtles add to the wonder of this underwater world.
WALKING IN THE WILD
One of the wonderful way to experience Africa intimately is take a walk through the African bush. During waliking to the bush safety is taken care hence all walks are accompanied by armed, experienced guides and game rangers. Walks can be from a few hours to a full day with picnic lunch depending on your choice. The African walking in the wild prove the fact that the land is truly shared between humans and animals.
Tanzania apart from offering landscapes and coastline that attracted many visitors over years now yet it’s also blessed with variety of species of birdlifes. It’s estimated the country counts over 1,000 species of birds. The country offers one of the best bird watching experiences in the world.
Budget camping, as opposed to fly camping at luxurious lodges, involves travelling with all necessary equipment, setting up camp and, perhaps, cooking your own meals.
Although not a golfing destination, there are numerous golf courses throughout the country, including Dar es Salaam and Arusha. The local clubs are always very welcoming to any visitor who may wish to swing the odd club. Contact your tour operator for details.
