How to reach climax enjoyment when in Tanzania via tourism activities and sports.

| |

It is well known that  everything and anything is as fully enjoyed if and only if you get to the climax point. Consider this example: Biology has taught us that ejaculation is the climax point for men when making love. You and I need to feel that we are satisfied to the fullest. And this is the reason why we act, think and talk they way we do, so that we get satisfied.

Travel and Tourism is among-est the popular way of re-energizing, refreshing and or re-boosting back our enthusiasm towards life. That is why we opt for vacations and holidays now and then.

You have had your share of vacations and holidays in your favorite destinations, but this time is Tanzania's time. Oh yeah! am serious about this.

Apart from the 15 famous National Parks and various Game Reserves that I bet you know at least 4 of them, there is much more other things to do than visiting the parks.

You can't leave Tanzania for any reason without doing at least 3 of these activities and sports.

Hot Air Balloon flights
Flights by hot air balloon take off as dawn breaks over the Serengeti National Park, the perfect silence of the early morning plains broken only by the soft roar of the balloon. Far below, wildebeest scatter, looking everywhere but up at the silent visitor that floats over their world. Giraffe stand next to acacia trees, untroubled by the airborne visitors. After the thrill of landing, a champagne breakfast awaits, the air becoming warmer as the sun climbs in the sky and curious zebra look up from their grazing at the chink of cutlery in the still, warm bush.

Deep sea and inland fishing
The water around Zanzibar and Pemba islands is considered by experts to offer some of the best fishing in the world, especially the Pemba Channel, between Zanzibar and Pemba, and around Mafia Island, south of Zanzibar. Big game fish include barracuda, kingfish, sailfish, billfish, wahoo, dorado and blue marlin. Rivers are stocked with trout around Mt Kilimanjaro and Mt Meru. Large rivers such as the Kilombero and Great Ruaha offer fabulous sport fishing for tiger fish, and large Nile perch can be caught in the great lakes, especially Lake Victoria.

Diving and snorkeling
The coral reefs off Tanzania’s coast around Zanzibar and Mafia Island offer some of the world’s finest scuba diving and snorkeling. Diving is possible all year round, although the Kusi Monsoon (strongest June-Sept) is accompanied by choppy seas and strong currents that make the more exposed reefs inaccessible. There can also be strong winds in December and January. Visibility is best from November to March, before the long rains set in.
Horse riding safari
Horse riding safaris are available from a few camps in Tanzania, for all standards of rider. Wild animals are not afraid of horses in the same way that they are of cars or pedestrians, allowing visitors to approach the wildlife much more closely than usual.

Mountain climbing and hiking
For most climbers who visit Tanzania, the 5,869m Kilimanjaro is the top prize. Mt Meru, another of Tanzania’s volcanic peaks, is also popular, with the varied animal and plant life to be found on its slopes a major draw. Meru is Africa’s fifth highest peak, with fabulous views of Mount Kilimanjaro and the Momela Lakes from the summit. The challenging ascent to the crater of Ol Donyo Lengai passes through some fantastic scenery, with panoramic views of the Rift Valley. The track to the top of Lengai is very steep, and a true challenge attempted only by hikers with a good level of fitness.

Paragliding and microlight flights
There are some fabulous areas to para-glide. Very few people para-glide in Tanzania, therefore it is a novelty. Always seek permission from the local village, explain what you are doing and where you think you will land (it is illegal to fly over national parks). Just some of the areas to fly are the Usambaras, the Rift Valley and numerous hills around Mt Meru. Microlight flights are now also available over Lake Manyara National Park and the Great Rift Valley.

Boat safaris
The soft chug of an outboard engine, or the whispering flap of a canvas sail; boat safaris in Tanzania are a tranquil and relaxing way to watch wildlife. This is one of the best ways to see the Selous Game Reserve, up the huge muddy brown sweep of the Rufiji River, leopard whisking away from rocks at the boat’s approach. Sail into chimpanzee territory on a dhow, skimming over the fresh, crystal waters of Lake Tanganyika, or travel up the Wami River in Saadani, surrounded by amazing bird life, hippos and alligators.

Walking Safaris
A walk through the African bush is a wonderful way to experience Africa intimately. Smells and sounds become distinct and varied, and smaller creatures gain significance. They are no longer simply rushed past in the race for the bigger game. When larger animals do appear, they are met at eye level; the land is truly shared between humans and animals. Safety is not an issue – 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. Many hotels and camps will offer guided walks in the national parks or community areas.

Cultural Tourism
In Tanzania, a land of superb landscapes and spectacular wildlife, another attraction stands equally tall – the people. Tanzania’s people are among the most welcoming and approachable on earth, with a range of fascinating cultures ready to be shared with visitors. From the Wa Chagga of the slopes of Kilimanjaro to the now world-famous Maasai, a cultural excursion or a longer stay among local people is likely to become one of the most rewarding experiences of any holiday in Tanzania.

Spa Treatments.
The perfect way to ease tired limbs after an exhilarating day's game viewing or in preparation for the beach, there are now many hotels, resorts and lodges in Tanzania and Zanzibar offering world class spa facilities to keep you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. 

Whale Watching.
Tanzania's Indian Ocean is home to one of the least known populations of Humpback Whales in the world. Researchers from Stockholm University and the University of Dar es Salaam are studying the Humpback Whales found near Zanzibar to learn more about their population and conservation status. The herds of migrating whales arrive in the waters around Zanzibar in late July, and August is now becoming the most popular month for sightings.

Kitesurfing has become the hottest and most popular up-and-coming activity in Zanzibar. Kitesurfing centres are popping up all along the east coast of the island, providing adrenaline seeking visitors with the chance to undertake lessons and get out on the waves while on holiday.

Apart from these, there are also seasonal activities and outings to die for in Tanzania. These activities can be combined with your safaris to the wildlife parks and you will get maximum enjoyment.

What do you think? Isn't Tanzania worthy a visit? Ofcorse Yes! I personally welcome you to this authentic wonderful land of Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar and the Serengeti filled with the most generous beautiful people.

Make sure you have big, fun plans in your live, because life only comes once, you better make the most out of it. "Don't per-sue happiness, create it."
