What are some things to do in Tanzania?

Lake Manyara is a national park in Tanzania. Over two-thirds of the park is covered by the lake for which it is named. Home to a diverse range of wildlife, the national park is most famous for its thousands of flamingos. Amongst its number of natural splendours, Tanzania also boasts the opportunity to see all of the iconic Big Five: lions, buffalos, elephants, leopards and rhinos. Another of Tanzania's treasures is Prison Island. Once an outback for convicted felons, it is now home to the highly-endangered Giant Aldabra tortoise. Other wildlife that calls the old prison outback home includes peacocks and buck. Any guide to things to do while visiting Tanzania would be incomplete without mention of Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's world-famous mountain peak. Mount Kilimanjaro National Park is unique in that it is the only national park in the country not frequented for its diverse range of wildlife, but rather to stand in awe of this wondrous mountain.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Tanzania?

New Zealand citizens, along with passport holders from most countries, do need to have a valid passport and visa to visit Tanzania. Multiple-entry business visas cannot be issued at the port of entry.
