Tanzania, Africa, famous for its mountains, beaches, safaris, and so much more can not possibly be explored well enough in a 14 days. But if that’s all you have, then this itinerary is for you. We’ll be showing you the best things to do in Tanzania for 2 weeks, as well as details about all the places you’ll visit. And even though we probably won’t travel soon, you can keep this itinerary in your head for whenever you can travel again.
(If you only have less than 14 days, break this itinerary down into your favorite parts.)
(Note: I’ll start with a super basic itinerary, and then below I’ll explain all the places you’ll visit.)
- Day 1: Arrive in Kilimanjaro International Airport. (Mount Kilimanjaro is the tallest mountain in Africa.) Go to the city of Arusha, where you’ll start your journey. Spend the night in Arusha.
- Day 2: Spend the next 5 days watching the wildlife in places like Ngorongoro Crater, the very popular Serengeti National Park, Tarangire National Park. (You probably won’t have enough time to visit all of these though, but I would visit only Seregeti if you don’t have enough time.)
- Day 3: Watching Wildlife.
- Day 4: Watching wildlife
- Day 5: Watching Wildlife
- Day 6: Watching wildlife. (If you would rather do some really hard hiking instead of watching the wildlife, take the Mount Kilimanjaro trail.)
- Day 7: Fly to Zanzibar island. Here, you can start with the beaches there if you like, but I would save them for later, because relaxing at the end of a trip is great. Today, you can explore Zanzibar’s Old Town (Stone Town).
- Day 8: Stone Town
- Day 9: Stone Town
- Day 10: Go to beaches like Matemwe, Nungwi, Paje, Kendwa and Jambiani.
- Day 11: Beaches
- Day 12: Beaches
- Day 13: Beaches
- Day 14: Depart from Zanzibar Island.
