Attractions from Tanzania

The House of Art, Nyumba ya Sanaa (Dar es Salaam)
The House of Art offers the possibility of seeing and buying Tanzanian art. The workshop, which originally began as a project to activate disabled and unemployed people, is today selling tie-and-dye fabrics, baskets and wood carvings by the dozen
The Mwenge market (Dar es Salaam)
Situated close to the Village Museum is the Mwenge market, where unique ivory sculptures designed and made by the Makonde people, a community which is characterized by their wood carvings, are exhibited and sold.
The Village Museum (Dar es Salaam)
The open-air museum, which is situated 14 kilometers outside of Dar es Salaam, consists of 14 huts in full size, which have each been built and decorated in the way that different Tanzanian tribes would have done it. The Village Museum is open from 9:30 to 18:00.
The animals of Ngorongoro (Ngorongoro National Park)
The most obvious attraction are the many animals who are walking about in the park. Ngorongoro has the highest density of predators in East Africa with 400 hyenas and 100 lions. As a special treat for the lucky few, there is a possibility of catching a glimpse of the black-maned lion.
The Olduvai Ravine (Serengeti National Park)
The Olduvai Ravine, which is about 50 kilometers long, is placed between the Ngorongoro crater and Serengeti. The ravine is the location where the oldest traces of human life has been found. This is where Mary Leaky, in 1976, found a footprint set in volcanic ashes that turned out to be 3,6 million years old.
Gombe Stream National Park (Tanzania)
The closer you get to Gombe Stream National Park, which faces the Tanganyika Lake in western Tanzania, the more fascinated you become with its beauty. The park is the smallest of its kind in Africa, but has, none the less, an inexhaustible variation of plants and animals. This was where Jane Goodall studied the chimpanzee and therefore they have become accustomed to humans.
Lake Victoria (Tanzania)
Lake Victoria is in western Kenya. The lake, which covers an area of 70,000 km2 and is no more than 100 meters deep, is a spectacular natural phenomenon. The only possibility to sail the lake is to take a boat from Kisumu to more southern towns in Kenya. Even though the shores of Lake Victoria are in both Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya it is not possible to sail between the countries.
Tarangire National Park (Tanzania)
The enormous amount of Baobab trees is the first thing visitors see when they come into Tarangire National Park, which covers an area of 2600 km2. The mildly undulating steppe is marked by these majestic trees, which make the grazing animals underneath the tree crowns look like miniature elephants, zebras and wildebeests.
The island of Mafia (Tanzania)
Divers' paradise, Mafia, is in spite of the name a friendly an relaxed place with about 40,000 inhabitants. The island covers an area of 394 km2 and is as such the biggest island in a small group and is probably the closest you will get to the idea of a tropical paradise in the Indian Ocean.
The island of Pemba (Tanzania)
Off the coast of Tanga, not far from Zanzibar, is the small, sleepy island of Pemba. The place has not really been discovered by tourist yet despite of its many qualities. The best fish of Eastern Africa can be caught here and it is possible to dive in some of the most magnificent coral reefs in the world, among other things. The island also has an atmospheric capital, Chake-Chake.
