The Ultimate Tanzania Itinerary (Plus Things To See & Do)

The Ultimate Tanzania Itinerary - An incredible 2-week Tanzania Itinerary including where to go, where to stay and things to do! From safari in the Serengeti, to Mount Kilimanjaro and the beaches of Zanzibar. Here's how to maximise your time in Tanzania.

If you’re looking for an epic Tanzania itinerary, then you’ve come to the right place. I LOVE Tanzania.

For me, it has everything you could want – amazing safaris, beautiful scenery, stunning beaches, lots of culture, great food, fun nightlife and lots of things to do! Tanzania is always an adventure and a Tanzania safari should be top of everyone’s Africa bucket list.

My ideal Tanzania itinerary would start up north around Arusha or Moshi and then end down on the beaches of Zanzibar. You could do it in reverse, although ending on the beaches makes more sense to me!

To see all of the ‘highlights’ on the itinerary below you would need at least 2 weeks, maybe a few more days if you can stretch to it. If you also wanted to climb Kilimanjaro you’d be looking at 3+ weeks.

This list isn’t exhaustive and Tanzania is huge so you could easily spend 4 – 6 weeks or more (a Tanzania visa usually lasts for 90 days) in the country and visit a lot more places than I have listed here, but this itinerary is a good place to start to help you maximise your time in Tanzania.

If you are wondering about how to get around Tanzania, then have a read of this post. Or, to experience Tanzania just like I do, come on either of my Kenya & Tanzania or Tanzania & Zanzibar group tours

There are so many places to visit in Tanzania!

Kikuletwa Hotsprings (Maji Moto) - TanzaniaArusha

Arusha is a bustling city which often serves as the starting point for safaris to the Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and Tarangire National Parks.

Many people just stay a night or two here before moving on, but if you have time, I’d suggest staying at least a few days. Arusha has a lot of charm of its own and is a great place to experience Tanzanian life. It also has a fun party scene which is probably one of the reasons it’s popular with lots of volunteers (Moshi is the same).

The city also lies at the base of Mount Meru which is a bit smaller than Kilimanjaro at 4,562m but is still a very challenging and rewarding hike.

Be sure to visit the great Masai Market whilst you are there and pick up some souvenirs and for a bit of R&R, head to the pool at the Mount Meru Hotel, the place to see and be seen. You can also visit some of the places closer to Moshi from here too.

Things To Do in Arusha:

  • Climb Mount Meru.
  • Book a Northern Circuit safari, if you haven’t already.
  • Swim and chill at the Mount Meru Hotel.
  • Party at the bars and clubs.
  • Eat chips mayai (chip omelette) and chicken from one of the street vendors.
  • Get clothes made at one of the local tailors.
  • Go shopping at the Maasai Market.
  • Eat nyama choma at Khan’s BBQ (I love the Mr Khan’s – it’s run by 3 brothers).

Time Needed: 1 – 2 days. More if you plan to climb Mount Meru.

Lake Manyara SafariLake Manyara

Lake Manyara is a great stopover on the way to the Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater.

The landscape of Lake Manyara is quite different to that of the Serengeti, more jungle-like, and it’s a great place to see flamingoes, elephants and it’s known for the tree-climbing lions (although lions are starting to climb trees elsewhere now too).

If you are staying at one of the camps or lodges outside the park, be sure to stop at the viewpoint (as you can see above). It’s popular with locals and especially beautiful at sunset.

We also went for a beer in one of the bars in the local village which is always fun and not something everyone will experience on safari, so just ask your guide. Usually, they’ll be happy to take you and don’t forget to buy them a beer.

Things To Do in Lake Manyara:

  • Go on safari.
  • Visit the viewpoint.
  • Go on a cultural or coffee tour in Mto Wa Mbu.
  • Walk high on the Lake Manyara Treetop Walkway.
  • Visit the Maasai.
  • Go canoeing.

Time Needed: 1 – 2 days.

Elephant in Tarangire National Park

Tarangire National Park

Next to Lake Manyara lies Tarangire National Park and you can easily stay in one and visit the other. I’d maybe suggest staying around Lake Manyara for the views.

Tarangire has the largest population of elephants in Tanzania.

Things To Do in Tarangire National Park:

  • Go on safari.

Time Needed: 1 – 2 days.

Serengeti, Tanzania

The Serengeti

The Serengeti is definitely a contender for the best safari in Africa and it’s the reason many people choose to come to Tanzania in the first place.

Vast and open this national park is teeming with all the wildlife you can imagine and stretches for miles and miles. The name ‘Serengeti’ actually means ‘endless plains’ in the Maasai language.

I’ve been to the Serengeti around 5 times and it’s the place where I’ve seen the most leopards, with a 100% success rate so far.

You can fly into the Serengeti from Arusha, however, it’s drivable in a day, with most safaris reaching the park by early afternoon (if you don’t stop at Lake Manyara or Tarangire on the way), allowing you to do a safari on the way into the park.

For those on a budget, camping is a great option and there are a number of campsites right inside the park. These campsites are often frequented by hyenas, buffalo, zebra and even the occasional lion at night, so it’s always an adventure to stay there.

For the Serengeti, I would always suggest going with a safari company, rather than self-driving, as it’s so big that you will likely get lost on your own and not see half as much as you would with an experienced safari guide. You can also see the wildebeest migration if you visit at the right time of year.

Tanzania safari tours are plentiful, so shop around to get the most competitive quotes and read lots of reviews! I was once quoted $700 higher from one safari company than another for the exact same tour.

Things To Do in the Serengeti:

  • Go on safari.
  • Take a hot air balloon ride.
  • Camp out in the wild.

Time Needed: 2 – 5 days.

Ngorongoro Crater - Rock my AdventureNgorongoro Crater

The Ngorongoro Crater is one of the most stunning safari destinations in all of Africa.

The crater was formed when a gigantic volcano (which is thought to have been bigger than Kilimanjaro) exploded and then collapsed, creating the epic landscape we see today.

A safari here never disappoints and it’s one of the best places in the world to see the endangered black rhino.

It’s important to get into the crater as early as possible, as this is when the animals are most active and when you are likely to see the most. I’ve seen standoffs between lions and buffalo and the craziest sight was watching seven hyenas chase a wildebeest whilst she was giving birth.

Most people visit the Ngorongoro Crater on the way back from the Serengeti as they are right next to each other, so you can easily do both together. For me, one day in the crater is usually enough, but if you want to give yourself a better chance of seeing some action then two days might be better.

Things To Do in the Ngorongoro Crater:

  • Go on safari.
  • See the wildebeest calving & migration.

Time Needed: 1 – 2 days.

Materuni waterfall in Moshi, Tanzania

Moshi

Moshi usually serves as the starting point for any Kilimanjaro expedition and is a great place to spend a couple of days before and after your climb.

It’s a lovely town, a bit less hectic than Arusha and with Kilimanjaro as the backdrop, it’s beautiful too.

There are plenty of great day trips to take from Moshi (you can also do these from Arusha too – but they’re a bit closer to Moshi), including a trip to Materuni village for a coffee tour and see the Materuni Waterfalls (one of my favourite places in Tanzania)and experience the hospitality of the Chagga people.

Another favourite of mine is the Chemka Hot Springs (also known as Kikuletwa Hot Springs) a popular picnic and swimming spot for both locals and tourists. This is a great place to spend an afternoon.

You’ll also be able to visit Maasai villages in the region between Moshi and Arusha. I prefer visiting the villages here to those in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area.

Things To Do in Moshi: 

  • Climb Kilimanjaro.
  • Visit the Maasai tribe.
  • Swim at the Kikuletwa Hot Springs.
  • Take a coffee and waterfall tour in Materuni village.
  • Eat pizza at IndoItaliano.
  • Visit a Women’s Co-Operative.

Time Needed: 2 – 3 days. More if you plan to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.

Tips for Climbing Kilimanjaro - Everything You Need to Know

Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro is the highest free-standing mountain in the world and the highest mountain in Africa. Plus, it’s damn beautiful so it’s no wonder that it is one of the reasons that thousands of people travel to Tanzania every year.

The climb usually takes between 6 to 8 days, so if you’ve only got a couple of weeks, this will take up a big portion of your trip, as you’ll need to spend a day in Moshi before the climb (at least) too. But it’s worth it.

I’ve submitted Kilimanjaro twice, by the Machame & Lemosho routes and it’s definitely one of the best things I have ever done in my life. I am also running Kilimanjaro expeditions if you’d like to join an awesome Kilimanjaro group tour!

Time Needed: 5 – 9 days.

Mambo, Usambara Mountains, Tanzania

The Usambara Mountains

Relatively untouched by tourism, the Usambara Mountains are an incredible stop on your Tanzanian itinerary.

Here you will find the best views in all of Tanzania and I’d dare to say the friendliest people in the country.

Most people stop in Lushoto in the West Usambaras, however, if you have more time, I would definitely suggest to head further into the mountains to Mambo, a small village in the far north of the mountains (you have to go through Lushoto to get to the other villages as there’s no direct road, unfortunately) where the views are even more spectacular and on a clear day you can even see all the way to Kilimanjaro.

The drive through the mountains is incredible or you can organise multi-day hikes between the two.

When there, be sure to visit the Irente View Point in Lushoto and take a trip to one of the colourful local markets.

Things To Do in the Usambara Mountains: 

  • Take a hiking, you can do either 1 day or multi-day hikes.
  • Visit a church.
  • Go shopping at a local market.
  • Visiting the Amani Nature Reserve.
  • Eat all the cheeses at Irente Farm.
  • Take in the epic views from the Irente or Mambo viewpoints.
  • Visit the Mazumbai Forest Reserve.

Bagamoyo, TanzaniaBagamoyo

If you want to get a true Swahili experience without the hordes of tourists, then head to Bagamoyo, a historical fishing town about an hour and 45 minutes north of Dar es Salaam. It’s one of my favourite places in Africa.

Bagamoyo has a chilled out vibe and is a great place to spend a few days, visiting the historical sites, eating fresh seafood and just being. It’s hard to describe how special this place is, but I will try with a post coming soon!

Tourism is slowly coming to Bagamoyo, so go sooner rather than later. Now you can even get a direct ferry from Bagamoyo to Zanzibar. Book through Firefly hostel.

Things To Do in Bagamoyo: 

  • Visit the Bagamoyo Art Market.
  • Hang out at Firefly.
  • Help with a beach cleanup.
  • Do some yoga.
  • Taking a cycling tour of the old town and learn about the Slave Trade.
  • Visit the fish market (go very early in the morning or late afternoon).
  • Taking a Swahili cooking class.
  • Go to an event at the Bagamoyo College of Arts.
  • Visit the Kaole Ruins.
  • Chill on the beach.

Traditional Dhow, Dar es Salaam, TanzaniaDar es Salaam

Dar es Salaam is a big, busy African city isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but it is kind of cool and also a great jumping-off point for travel over to Zanzibar (although you may soon be able to get a ferry to and from Bagamoyo… I will keep you posted) or to the neighbouring countries of Zambia and Malawi.

Plus it also has an international airport so it’s a good place to start or end your Tanzania trip.

Things To Do in Dar es Salaam:

  • Visit the Fish Market.
  • Take a trip to Bongoyo Island.
  • Hang out on Coco Beach.
  • Try the local street food.
  • Go shopping at Kariakoo Market.
  • Visit the Mwenge Wood Carvers’ Village.
  • Learn about Tanzanian culture at the Village Museum.
  • Go shopping for fabric on Uhuru Street.

Weighing up the Pros and Cons of Travelling Africa Independently v's Taking an Organised Tour.Zanzibar

It’s no secret that I love Zanzibar. For me it has a bit of everything. History, a mix of cultures, beautiful beaches, amazing food and lots of stuff to do!

When I go to Zanzibar, i usually move around to different places as staying in one place and exploring the island from there doesn’t make much sense to me. I’ll start with a day or two in stone Town, then move to the beaches in the north (usually Kendwa) and then the beaches in the south east (usually Jambiani or Paje) – or vice versa.

Things To Do in Zanzibar:

  • Explore historical Stone Town.
  • Learn about the Slave Trade.
  • Relax on the beaches.
  • Go shopping.
  • Eat at the Forodhani Gardens food market.
  • Party at the beach bars.
  • Take a trip on a traditional dhow.
  • I’ll leave it there as I’ve written a very comprehensive guide on things to see and do in Zanzibar below!

From safari in the Serengeti, to Mount Kilimanjaro and the beaches of Zanzibar. Here's how to maximise your time in Tanzania.

Plan Your Trip to Tanzania

Getting There: I always search for flights on Skyscanner. For the Serengeti Northern Circuit, the best airport is Kilimanjaro Airport which lies between Moshi and Arusha. There is also an international airport in Dar es Salaam and another in Zanzibar. There are also lots of smaller national airports and airstrips.

Travel Insurance: This is Africa and medical care is not free. If you get injured or fall sick, you will have to pay for your medical care which could be very expensive, so make sure you have comprehensive travel insurance that will cover you for all aspects of your trip. I recommend World NomadsOutbacker, or InsureandGo.

Visas: A visa to Tanzania costs US$50 for most nationalities and US$100 for Americans. For other types of visa, see the embassy website.

Tours: Want to visit Tanzania & Zanzibar with an awesome group of like-minded travellers? Then come on one of my Rock My Adventure tours.

    Do you generally feel pretty safe there, or is there anything to look out for aside from general common sense?

    Also, are there any safari tour groups that you would recommend? I would LOVE to take one of yours but unfortunately can’t get that much time off… so I’ve been looking at Easy Travel

      Hi Jessica,

      I haven’t used Easy Travel before, so I can’t comment on their service. I would maybe get some quotes from different operators. For a 3-day safari, you shouldn’t really be paying more than $650 if you are in a full safari car, this may vary if on your own, but between 4, $650 is reasonable per person. i would try Shemeji Safaris too. I know they have some sharing trips you can join.

      I feel very safe in Tanzania! The men are very forward sometimes, not all, and generally harmless but just something to be aware of.I have this post which covers a lot! https://www.heleninwonderlust.co.uk/2014/08/tips-for-women-travelling-alone-in-africa/

      Hope that helps! And happy birthday for August!

By the looks of things I can sort out a safari at short notice but what would be your advice in Kilimanjaro, should I have that booked before I leave or would a few days to find a group be ok? And also is there any companies you’d recommend? Thank you!

Is there public transport options to get e.g. to the Usambara Mountains, bagamoyo, dar es salaam? And for the more safari areas like getting to the crater and Lake Manyara etc. do you need to book a tour for this or are there other ways, how did you get around? Would love your feedback 🙂 cheers.

    Thanks for the great post Helen. My husband & I hope to visit Tanzania in July next. Your trip looks great but I don’t know how to go about organising it. We are used to driving in many countries but don’t know if that is a good idea in Africa. Booking flights & accommodation would be easy but getting around & what trips to book in advance is the problem. We are in our early sixties & don’t want to spend too much time on long bus journeys. We would appreciate your advice. Mary

      Hi Mary,

      Thanks for reading!

      In terms of organising, it really depends on where you are going. You can just turn up in Tanzania and organise most things, however if you are limited on time, organising a few things in advance is probably better – accommodation (especially if there’s anywhere specific you want to stay) and safaris. Other activities, you can book when there. And any internal flights.

      I would maybe start by contacting some safari companies. You can fly into the Serengeti etc but it’s the more expensive option. To keep costs low, you can drive in. I would suggest to go with a safari company as you will have a much better experience. The journey takes around 6/7 hours but with a private safari company it’s pretty comfortable.

      The only real long journeys on this itinerary is the trip between Arusha/Moshi and Dar/Bagamoyo, but you can break it up with a stop in Lushoto (like I do on my trips), or you can just fly between Kilimanjaro and Dar or Zanzibar. If you do get the bus, it takes 12 hours or so, but if you get one of the big coaches they’re pretty comfy – I recommend the Kilimanjaro Express.

      You could drive around, just be aware of the police, speeds and ensure you have the correct paperwork from your rental company.

      I also run trips if you would like to join one – I make it super easy for you! 🙂 https://www.rockmyadventure.com/tanzania-zanzibar-group-adventure-solo-travellers/

    Thanks for a very helpful post!
    I am planning a 3 Weeks trip in july to Tanzania, where your post has been a great inspiration. Even though we are doing the trip the other way around since the flight tickets got 400 dollars cheaper and with shorter layover.

    We are planning 4 Days of safari around Serengeti. I woukd love a longer tour, but my husband think we would her to tired og bumbing around for longer time. So my question is: are where other ways to get sine wildlife experience near this route? We are of course gonna snorkle around Zanzibar, but except for that. What else are there og wildlife opportunities?

      Hi there!

      4 days in the Serengeti itself would be too long for me, but nearby are Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyatta, the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Eyasi, all of which can be incorporated into your safari.

      There is also Arusha National Park and down by the coast, Selous NP.

      Please see this post which has more detail: https://www.heleninwonderlust.co.uk/2019/02/how-to-find-the-best-serengeti-ngorongoro-crater-safari/

    Wow nice blog, thanks for sharing this informative blog. We know that Tanzania is regarded as one of the best Safari destinations in Africa. Tanzania safari is renowned for the raw wildlife experiences that it offers to the tourists who arrive here from all around the world. Last February I had visited Tanzania. It’s been a superb place to visit. I think Most of the people love with their wildlife and their awesome climbing and traditional culture tourism in there. I had traveled in there with the help of “Promised Land Tours Limited”. It’s also one of my favorite destinations ever.

      They’re both great!

      Moshi – waterfall, Maasai, hot spring, Kilimanjaro

      Bagamoyo – beach, Swahili culture, historical sights, chilled out vibe

      Should have come on my tour – we do both! 🙂

    Thank you.

    Regards,

    Sylvia

      Hi Sylvia,

      You can find all the info on prices and where we stay here: https://www.rockmyadventure.com/tanzania-zanzibar-group-adventure-solo-travellers/

      It’s mostly hotels and guesthouses, with a couple of nights camping in Serengeti & Ngorongoro Crater!

      Driving varies. Nairobi to Masai Mara is approx 6 hours. Arusha to Serengeti approx 7 hours. Moshi to Bagamoyo is 10 hours. They’re the big drives and the rest are all shorter drives or part of the excursion (ie. when on safari).

      Hope you can make it!

      Helen

    I visited Tanzania in 2016 for one week, I covered Zanzibar, Mwanza and Dar es salaam. Zanzibar is an awesome place with calm beach and good cafes… As it was a short trip I didn’t go to Kilimanjaro but next time I will really go..
