Dar es salaam Beaches

About 20 to 25km (12-15 miles) north of the city, there are good beaches at Kunduchi and Mbezi, which are both accessed off the road to Bagamoyo.
Here there are a string of resorts that offer day access to visitors to the beach; some offer diving or windsurfing, as well as entertainment on the weekends.

Zanzibar beaches
These Zanzibar pages are split roughly by area (click for a map of Zanzibar) – starting in a clockwise order around Zanzibar island they are:

Stone Town

The heart of Zanzibar, Stone Town, was constructed during the 19th century: a labyrinth of narrow alleys complete with palaces, mosques, and tiny shops. It's noisy, busy and not very clean – but it has a vibrant, exotic atmosphere that can be enticing! Stay here for a night or two – it's often convenient for international flights – at one of the beautiful converted merchant's houses, and look forward to eating out.

Northern Zanzibar

Two or three hours drive from Stone Town, the village of Nungwi marks the northern-most tip of Zanzibar. The turquoise-blue ocean surrounds it on three sides; Nungwi has long been a magnet for visitors seeking paradise. Come for some good diving and beaches, and proximity to a lively village where there's always a lot going on.

East Coast Zanzibar

The northern part of east coast Zanzibar is lined with long, powder-white beaches. We've included the pick of the small resorts here; all quite different – although their beaches are similar! Offshore you're find the magical Mnemba Island – the ultimate island lodge for those who can afford it!

Michamvi Peninsula and South-east Zanzibar

South along the east coast of Zanzibar and the beach remains stunning: powder-white sand with a barrier reef, lots of palm trees and a significant tidal range. The villages become a little sleepier and more relaxed as you head south, and Jambiani, in particular, is very relaxed indeed. For an authentic visit to a friendly village, you can't beat it. (

South-west Zanzibar

Fumba Peninsula is south of Stone Town. Like the south-east of Zanzibar, this is a very relaxed and friendly corner of the island which has seen few visitors. There are two good lodges here –– whilst offshore is the award-winning eco-resort on Chumbe Island.

Whilst considering beach holidays on Zanzibar, you should also consider:

Pemba Island

Pemba is a 30-minute flight northeast of Zanzibar. Though comparable in size, its economy is largely rural and agricultural. It's almost exclusively Muslim, with a people who are more traditional in their occupations, and more conservative in their approach.

Mafia Archipelago

Although not part of the Zanzibar Archipelago, the neighbouring Mafia Archipelago is a group of equally magical Indian Ocean islands, just south of Zanzibar – which has just a handful of small lodges. These are more remote, and quieter, than many places on Zanzibar – and the diving and snorkelling are generally better here.

The Ngorongoro Crater is a true Garden of Eden, with highland forest covering the sheer sides of the caldera and is popularly known as the eighth wonder of the world.  Measuring 16 kilometres in diameter and enclosed in walls over 600 metres high, it acts as a spectacular barrier encircling the wildlife that roams the largest intact crater in the world.
Within Ngorongoro Conservation Area you can visit one of the foremost craters in the world (Eighth World Wonders) which was formed 2.5 million years ago. May have been taller than Mt. Kilimanjaro. The crater is the result of the volcano vents being filled with sold rocks, the molten material was forced elsewhere by the falling pressures at the collapsed inward forming the caldera. It is the variety of different habitats within the NCA that makes it so uniquely rich in wildlife- complete ecosystem. It is within  NCA where the world famous archaeological sites of Oldupai and Laetoli where the humans history back to 3.5 million years and this story is told in the Rocks and remains (Fossils) found at Oldupai and Laetoli. 

Lake Manyara National Park


Lake manyara national park is at the base of the Great Rift Valley escarpment, stretching for about several miles. The park covers about 130 sq miles (336 sq km), it has a spectacular view with easy back drop on Rift valley. The surrounding vicinity comprises forest and green grassland. Lake manyara offers perfect introduction to Tanzania wildlife species including birds.
Manyara offers varieties of wildlife animals including; lions, leopards, cheetah, elephants, jackals, african wild dogs, african cape buffalo, wildebeest, grants and thomson´s gazelles, hippos and many other large herd of mammals like, eland, baboon, dikdik and over 400 different species of birds.

Serengeti National Park


Serengeti National Park is one of the unique area in the world covers an area of 14763km²  and  one of the last places in Africa in which large animal migrations still occur including (more than 3 million) blue wildebeests and  (more than 1.8 million ) Burchell’s zebras (Plain Zebras) roam in Tanzania. During the wet season herds with numbers in the thousands populate the southeastern plains of the park. In the dry season the animals migrate westward into the woodland savanna of the Serengeti and northward to the grassland areas of neighboring Kenya.

Oldupai Gorge


The archaeological site of Olduvai Gorge is located in the eastern Serengeti in northern Tanzania within the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The gorge is a steep sided 4 to 8- kilometre (30 mile) long ravine, which forms part of the Great Rift Valley. It is situated on a series of fault lines which, along with centuries of erosion, has revealed fossils and remnants of early humankind.
  • Ancient archaeological site
  • Cradle of humankind
  • Situated in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area
  • Forms part of the Great Rift Valley
Excavations in the early twentieth century by the famous archaeologist, Dr Louis Leakey, uncovered some of the earliest remains of fossil hominids at Olduvai.

Seventeen years after the first discovery of human forms, Leakey’s wife, Mary, discovered the unmistakable fossilised footprints of a human ancestor who had walked along a riverbank three million years ago. Since then, excavators working in Olduvai have found skeletal remains of a number of ancient hominids – Homo habilis, Homo erectus and Australopithecus Boisei. Old campsites and what is believed to be a butchery site, as well as a loosely built circle of lava blocks was also found suggesting that crude shelters were also built here. Other findings include hunting weapons, basic tools and remains of dead animals once killed by humans.

Mount Kilimanjaro


Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain in Africa, standing at 19,340 feet (5,896m). Located in Northern Tanzania, bordering Kenya, it also spans five different ecological zones, making it one of the most varied peaks on Earth to climb.
Mount Kilimanjaro features two peaks, Kibo (5,893m) and Mawenzi (5,149m).
