Famous for its wildlife and iconic African landscapes, Tanzania certainly is the continent's safari capital. However, there's much more to this inviting nation. Vibrant cultures, idyllic beaches, ancient ruins, and an unfailingly welcoming people add to the plethora of reasons to visit this East African country. Hotels in Tanzania will place you at the center of this fantastic convergence in what is one of the oldest continually inhabited areas on earth, so prepare yourself for an experience unlike any other.
Tanzania hotels will either put you on the mainland, a large central plateau, or near the Great Rift Valley, where powerful mountain ranges from the east, north, and south merge and bisect the country. As you'll discover during your time here, Tanzania is a land of extremes. Here, you can visit the highest point in Africa, the peak of legendary Mount Kilimanjaro, and the lowest point, Lake Tanganyika. Dar-es-Salaam, the country's capital on the Indian Ocean, is a great place to start any Tanzania trip. Hotels in Dar Es Salaam will give you prime access to the offshore island of Zanzibar, as well as a front-row seat to the workings of Africa's second-largest port. From here, head to the southern highlands, a fantastic landscape dotted with volcanoes, waterfalls, crater lakes, and the expansive Ruaha National Park. Alternatively, heading north from Dar-es-Salaam brings you to the "Great Lakes of Africa," the splendor of the Serengeti ecosystem, and the northern mountains, including the imposing Kilimanjaro. If you're looking to escape the mountains, head to central Tanzania, where a gigantic, grassy plateau awaits. This area features the city of Kondoa, which holds one of the continent's largest collections of rock paintings.
