Things to Do in Tanzania

Just an hour north of Dar es Salaam, and translating as 'lay down your heart,' Bagamoyo played an infamous role in the slave trade. Thousands of slaves were shipped from here to the Far East under terrible conditions. Travelers can take a look at the (profoundly moving) underground caves in which the slaves were housed before transit.
2. Serengeti National Park
Everyone's heard of it, but it has to be seen to be believed. The mile after mile of grassland, offers plenty of chances to see families of lions, migrating wildebeest and baboons grooming each other.
3. The Ngorogoro Crater
The Ngorogoro Crater is best taken in from the campsite initially, which allows you to see right across it. Driving down into the crater, you'll discover some of Africa's finest animals including mischievous monkeys who are quite partial to visitors' packed lunches!
This tiny village at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro is home to what's said to be East Africa's biggest banana market. Every Tuesday, farmers from miles around come to sell their bananas and the unmade roads surrounding the village are filled with trucks overflowing with the fruit, with their growers seated atop their crop.
5. Landmine Rat Training Centre
Situated in Morogoro, this slightly bizarre centre trains rats to hunt for landmines. At the center you'll see the rats learning to identify devices and jump around to indicate to their keepers where they are located. Once trained, the rats are sent to Mozambique and other countries where landmines are prevalent. The giant rats are favoured over dogs because they're lighter, and preferred to regular rats because of their extended lifespan.
