Tanzania is also home to the Great Rift Valley, which runs along the country’s length and is a major geographic feature.

The fame of Mt. Kilimanjaro is phenomenal of being Africa’s tallest mountain. Among the top fun facts of Tanzania is that this Mountain towers high in the plains of Tanzania measuring 19,341 ft.

Serengeti National Park is one of the world’s renowned wildlife sanctuaries with thousands of games spread across the grass-ridden plains of the park.

Arusha National Park

Arusha National Park is one of the oldest parks in Africa and is located just outside of the Arusha City Centre.

Mt. Meru

Mount Meru is one of the highest mountains in Africa and the highest in Tanzania. It is a popular trek for those looking to experience the region’s spectacular scenery without the extreme altitude of a climb on Mount Kilimanjaro. The three-day trek takes hikers through the lush forest of the Virunga Volcanoes Reserve, home to hundreds of species of plants and animals that live nowhere else on Earth.

The best time to visit Arusha is from June to October, especially dry season. This place is easier to spot the wildlife – since they normally gather around the waterholes, rainfall is minimal, vegetation is not too thick and mosquitoes levels are reduced.
