From Mount Kilimanjaro to the island of Zanzibar, Tanzania has plenty to offer. These reliable apps will help you discover it all.
Tanzania is a diamond in the rough, a yet undiscovered gem of Africa. Of course, people know of it, but few adventurers eager to explore the world have dared to visit. This is an incredible injustice because the place is beyond beautiful. Nowhere will you find such stunning nature, such rich heritage, and such great people. The fact that the area can sometimes be difficult to navigate has definitely contributed to this situation. If you're planning a visit, hiring a rent-a-car is perhaps the best option - especially if you intend to get out of the capital, Dodoma, for a day or two (or ten). Just make sure to bring a GPS device and an up-to-date map.
Chances are, you will want to embark on an adventure and explore every nook and cranny of this gorgeous land. Yes, there's plenty to see, and no, you don't need a tour guide to see it. Ok, perhaps you will need one for a safari in the Serengeti National Park- mostly because the lions are not very keen on tourists. In every other instance, you can travel on your own. Try climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, sailing around Zanzibar, or snorkeling in the blue waters of Mafia Island. In case you need more ideas - try PocketGuide. It's a great option for most of Africa, including Tanzania.
Moreover, you shouldn't miss trying all the amazing food that the country has to offer. Tanzanian cuisine is a real treat. There are more dishes than anyone can list. Chipsi mayai (chips and eggs), nyama choma (grilled meat), and the Zanzibar pizza are wonderful main dishes, while mandazi (a kind of doughnut) is an amazing dessert. If you want to really enjoy them - and enjoy life - you will definitely make an effort to find the best restaurants close by. Luckily, most of the good ones will be listed online. A bit of browsing and a short walk is all that is standing between you and delicious food.
