Discover The Unexpected

Top 10 Instagrammable Places in Tanzania

Let’s face it. Social media influences many of our choices. In fact, when planning a trip or even a lunch date with friends, we always take into account how Instagram-worthy the place (or even the food) is! Well, if you’re traveling to Tanzania or are already in Tanzania, good news: The country is brimming with Insta-worthy pizzazz!
From breathtaking landscapes and expansive shorelines to jaw-dropping wildlife, vibrant people and unique experiences to historical and cultural structures that may seem mundane at times, Tanzania will definitely spruce up your Instagram feed! Here are the top 10 Instagrammable places in Tanzania:

#1 STONE TOWN

Zanzibar Stone Town

A gem in the island of Zanzibar, Stone Town is a crumbling yet hauntingly beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site. Like stepping into a lost world, the windy narrow streets, intricate wooden doorways and ancient coralline ragstone buildings of the town create a magical vibe. Showcasing a complex synthesis of Swahili, European, Indian and Arab influences, the town prides of picture-perfect scenery. Even if you just take snaps of its walls, streets or open courtyards, your Instagram feed will surely be amazing! Other points of interest include Darajani Market and eclectic monuments like Old Fort, Christ Church Anglican Cathedral and House of Wonders. Check out this tour for an Instagrammable trip!

#2 NGORONGORO CRATER

Ngorongoro Crater

A long time ago, this panoramic area was a gigantic volcano. Today, Ngorongoro Crater is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of Tanzania’s most visited and sought-after attractions. Catering thousands of wildlife in an amazing bowl, this protected caldera remains one of Africa’s most scenic landscapes. In fact, it has been often regarded as Africa’s “Garden of Eden.” Also, the place is known to provide one of the most fascinating bush picnics — definitely an Instagram-worthy experience!

#3 MOUNT KILIMANJARO

Named “Roof of Africa” and the world’s highest free-standing mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro tops any scenic African landscapes list. With a snow-capped peak that’s featured all year-round and an amazing variety of vegetation zones, it is no surprise that Mount Kilimanjaro is one Instagrammable place. Whether you take snapshots of its dramatic facade; take selfies with the wildlife that graces its base, Kilimanjaro National Park; or document your trek up its glacier summit, your Instagram followers will surely drool over your photos! Ready to bring your adventure to greater heights? Here’s a Lemosho route tour.

#4 MATEMWE

Sitting on the quiet northeast region of Zanzibar, Matemwe is a little slice of paradise that blends together all the elements of a perfect beach getaway: soft white sands shimmering in the sun, sparkling turquoise waters, palm-fringed coastline, colorful reefs and beautiful dhows. You’re like sharing a piece of tropical paradise to your Instagram followers!

#5 RUAHA NATIONAL PARK

When it comes to game viewing, Ruaha National Park is Tanzania’s best-kept secret. It is remote, not very touristy and so it keeps an unspoiled wilderness. The park also features a beautiful landscape that includes rolling hills, open plains, enormous baobab trees, and the iconic Ruaha River — all these create a sweeping scenery that’s just incredibly captivating. In this tour, you will be able to enjoy not just Ruaha but also other Southern Safari Circuit Parks.

#6 SERENGETI NATIONAL PARK

Bringing the magic of Africa to life, Serengeti National Park is easily among the most recognised and popular wilderness areas in the world. Its endless grassy plains present a classic Africa scenery that’s impossible to not take photos of. Not to mention its staggering populations of wildlife from lions to wildebeests to hippos to endangered wild dogs. And while the scenery is splendid, the things you can enjoy in the Serengeti guarantee moments that you would want to keep forever. Moments that you would want to capture and share to the world: game viewing, picnics in the wild, hot air balloon rides, and many more!

#7 LAKE MANYARA

Lake Manyara is popular for its hordes of vibrant flamingoes on its vast soda lake. Numerous animals like zebras and rhinos also come to this watering hole for some refreshment. So if you want a picturesque view, a unique take on the African wild, Lake Manyara should be on your must-take-a-photo list!

#8 KIZIMKAZI

Once a walled city on the island of Zanzibar, Kizimkazi is now a fishing village that highlights an idyllic beach in Menai Bay. The great thing is, you will not only enjoy a stunning beach paradise in here but also an exciting display of swimming bottle-nose dolphins. If you’re lucky, you may even swim with them! Now that’s Instagrammable.

#9 IRINGA BOMA

Perched at a cool 1600m on a cliff overlooking the valley of the Little Ruaha River, Iringa Boma is one of the oldest remaining buildings in southern Tanzania. It was originally built by Germans as a military hospital and now, it stands as a museum and cultural center. One with a charm that’s hard to miss. Photos in Iringa Boma will make your viewers swoon and, considering its German architecture, maybe even ask, “That’s in Africa?”

#10 TARANGIRE NATIONAL PARK

One elephant is picture-perfect enough. What more if you see multiple elephants in their natural habitat, some even having a mud bath? In Tarangire National Park, not only will you enjoy a landscape that’s been relatively untouched by mass tourism, but you will also be able to indulge your followers on some fascinating African wilderness: red elephants, mud baths and undulated savannah woodlands.

The beautiful country of Tanzania is indeed an Instagram-worthy paradise. Whether it’s their charming towns, inviting beaches, lush forests, majestic mountains, great wilderness or even their bustling cities, the country will not only fill your feed with shots that are golden but will also fill your life with adventures that are worth remembering forever.

Asante Gosheni and espacially Hassan Nous tenons à recommander Hassan car nous venons de passer un séjour mémorable avec lui. Grâce à son expérience, sa connaissance parfaite du monde animal et des parcs, Hassan nous a permis de voir de nombreux animaux en étant extrêmement bien placé.
Bien évidemment les big five (même le rhinocéros!), la traversée de la rivière par les gnous et bien d'autres animaux.
En faisant un safari avec Hassan vous trouverez tout ce que vous êtes venus chercher.
A l'avenir si nous décidons de refaire un safari, nous voudrions repartir avec Hassan.

Hassan is the best guide !!!! Nous avons eu la chance de faire un safari de 8 jours dans les parcs nationaux du nord de la Tanzanie avec Hassan comme guide. Hassan est un guide très expérimenté.
Grâce à lui et sa grande expérience nous avons découvert et appris énormément de choses sur la Tanzanie, les animaux, les végétaux etc. Hassan est un véritable passionné qui aime transmettre son savoir.
En plus de ses connaissances, Hassan a un véritable œil de lynx et sais débusquer le moindre animal caché.
Grâce à Hassan nous avons eu la chance de voir beaucoup d’animaux et tous ceux du « Big Five ».
Parmi tous les véhicules présents lors des safaris, Hassan sait se frayer un chemin pour nous permettre d’avoir toujours le meilleur point de vue.
Hassan sait où se placer pour nous permettre d’avoir une vue sans égal sur les animaux, en les observant de très près.
Hassan est également un excellent conducteur. La route n’a aucun secret pour lui.
C’est également un guide très attentionné, toujours aux petits soins pour nous et d’une extrême gentillesse.
Nous recommandons Hassan les yeux fermés et si nous devions refaire un safari, nous demanderons d’être guidés par Hassan sans hésitation.
Merci encore à Hassan pour ces merveilleux moments qui resterons gravés dans notre mémoire !!

Great experience! Great experience! Starting from the trip planning the communications were very clear and smooth to organize the tour and select itinerary. In the end we opted for 5 days/4 nights route including the Tarangire, Serengeti and Lake Manyara nations parks as well as a visit to the Ngorongoro crater. The tour itself was excellent and very punctual, here kudos to our guide Wilson who is very experienced and knowledgeable about his job and also went well beyond his duty and gave us a nice summary of country’s history. It was really a pleasure to spend time with him and we managed to see the big 5:) Accommodations were superb: great camps, an amazing farmhouse close to Ngorongoro, meals were also good and picnic lunches well organized.
In summary the experience was highly satisfying, I sincerely recommend Gosheni Safaris and to ask for Wilson as a guide.

Great Taste of Tanzania Had a great 5-day tour. Our guide James was very dedicated to making sure we saw amazing sights. He asked us our favorite animals to see and made it his mission to help us spot them. The food was good, the lodging was very pleasant, and enjoying a glass of wine on lunches was a nice touch. Favorite lodging was definitely the Farmhouse by Ngorongoro. Beautiful landscapes along the entire tour, covered a lot of ground and got a great introduction to Tanzania.

Gosheni number 1 What an unforgettable 6 days, courtesy of Gosheni Safari and our guide/driver Zadock!!!
I booked this holiday back in 2020 but then had to cancel due to Covid. That was after a lot of research of tour companies and finally picking Ghosheni. The time was right to get this once in a lifetime trip set up again, so working via email with William at Gosheni we compiled the agenda…he was so helpful and we settled on one day in Tarangire, one day in Lake Manyara, three days in Serengeti and one day in Ngorongoro Crater…I’m now on the way to Zanzibar after an amazing experience, Gosheni took care of the whole package for my wife, three teenage sons and I.

Our guide and driver was Zadock, a humble, honest, genuine, proud and generous man. He did absolutely everything for us, answered every question and took us to all the places to see the big five up close, hunts and more.

The food was served every lunch time as a picnic, with plates, blanket, wtc whilst others had lunch boxes. The Jeep was cleaned daily, and was extremely comfortable along the difficult rough terrain…a credit to Zadock.

Zadock had so much knowledge not only of the animal kingdom’s hundreds of species but also the history of Tanzania, Africa, politics, and social customs, we felt as though he was part of our family.

Thankyou Zadock and Gosheni, I very rarely write reviews after holidays and I have travelled extensively around the world, but these guys are special and have made this so memorable for my family and I….I recommend to everyone if you are unsure about who, how, what, these guys will sort out the whole trip and at a very reasonable price.

Well done William, Gosheni and Zadock, and I really hope you get to be recognised as the number one tour company in Tanzania!

Extraordinary Safari with Gosheni I am so glad to have Gosheni as our tour operator. They provide excellent service starting from arranging the tour till the end of our safari.
As our city had quarantine arrangement due to COVID-19, we were so worry about our trip. Luckily, Gosheni is so considerate and try their best endeavors to rearrange our scedule. With their assistance, everything is set and we feel comfortable for all of their kind arrangements.

During the safari, we have a terrific tour guide, Edward! He takes care of all the stuff and administration including liaison with hotels, lunch packing, other add-on safaris so that we can fully enjoy the trip.

Not only Edward spots a lot a lot of animals and birds for us, including the top 5 in the trip, he also introduces us the habitat and features of the animals and birds. We are very impressed by his rich knowledge and do enjoy listening the "stories" of the animals.

Edwward is definitely experienced and propose the best programme during the safari, e.g. he tries to maximise our time for the game drive in different locations and tribe visit. We fully trust his expertise and professionalism.

We are very happy with Edward and Gosheni. We will absolutely consider them in our next Africam safari.

Amazing Safari with Gosheni and Ombeni Our guide, Ombeni, was the best part of our trip. He is really knowledgeable, friendly, and we trusted his expertise for the whole 9 days across Tarangire, Serengeti, and Ngorongoro. We were lucky to see some amazing things on our game drives. Having grown up in Kenya, I have been lucky to go on many safaris, and this is one of the best I've been on.
The food was excellent, and even on the all-day game drives we had a cooked, sit-down meal for lunch which was a big plus point. All the accommodation was excellent as well.

We had a bespoke itinerary which we planned in advance with William from Gosheni, and he was extremely helpful in answering our questions and accommodating our requests.

I would highly recommend Gosheni and especially Ombeni for future travels.

Dreams come true!!! Thanks to best guide Hassani I have been dreaming Serengeti Safari tour for a long time and Gosheni Safaris made my dreams come true. We completed our 5 days safari at the end of July and it was wonderful. We visited Central Serengeti, North Serengeti and Ngorongoro.
The company is very professional from beginning to end. Peter the owner of Gosheni Safaris helped us a lot about planning our itinary. I asked too many questions and he replied all of them everytime. Sometimes he can be in the bush and has no internet connection but be sure he always will reply your questions. Just be sure that you are in safe hands and Hakuna Matata☺️

Our guide was Hassani who is a perfect guide, safari driver, friend and everything. He always did his best to show us as much as possible. We always felt safe and witnessed lots of amazing moments by help of Hassani. Beside being a perfect safari guide, he prepared very nice lunch tables every afternoon. He is very funny person and makes lots of jokes during the safari. I higly recommend Gosheni Safaris which is best one and Hassani who is a very good guide. I want to thank Hassani in person for making our safari perfect and looking forward to meet again🙏🏻

Tips: I recommend ‘Morning Hot air Balloon safari’.
