There is so much to see and do in Tanzania, which makes it an ideal destination for all types of travelers. My trip to Tanzania consisted of three extremely different parts: Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, going on safari in the Serengeti, and enjoying the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar.
My favorite part of the entire trip, and one of my top five travel memories of all time, was the hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti. From the sky, we witnessed a lioness stalking her prey, hippos abruptly mating in a small lake, and masses of zebras and wildebeest migrating through the plains.
Serengeti Balloon Rides offers an hour and half floating over the plains, followed by a champagne toast and a delicious, filling breakfast. An aerial view of I paid $550 for this experience and found it worth every penny.
Without further ado, please do enjoy these photos, all taken on my trip to Tanzania in 2015.
I hope these photos of Tanzania have convinced you to put this stunning country at the top of your bucket list.
