Tanzania Hiking - Walking

Tanzania's unique location means it has some excellent hiking and walking trails and trekking is one of the best ways to get around Tanzania (from a sight-seeing point of view). Much of Tanzania features walking trails, which vary greatly in both length and scenery. Popular treks go from the peaks of Kilimanjaro to Mount Meru, the highlands of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area up the steep volcano Ol Doinyo Lengai or Mount Hanang near Babati. For the serious hiker the Udzungwa Mountains National Park is a dream location. The terrain can be hard going at times but views from the top and hidden waterfalls make all your efforts worthwhile. Treks in Tanzania typically last from 1 day up to 10 days. As Tanzania is a hot location, walking is best done outside the summer months, and remember to bring plenty of water and are protected from the sun.
