Chaka Adventures - Destinations and Attractions

Tanzania attractions and destinations is one of the most diverse and enchanting countries in the world. Exotic combinations of landscapes, people, history and culture offer the traveller a unique and inspiring experience. There is the snow-capped summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and the sun-kissed beaches of Zanzibar, the vast herds of game grazing on the Serengeti plains and the slow volcanic eruption of Ol Donyo Lengai. With so much natural wealth, it?s no wonder that Tanzania has something for everyone.

Northern Mozambique

Northern Mozambique is one of the World's last remaining unspoiled destinations. Encompassing three provinces (Cabo Delgado, Niassa, and Nampula) with a total area of 280,000 km2, Northern Mozambique is a nature-lover's paradise.

It is an untouched area dotted with majestic baobab trees and wild mangrove forests. (Six species of mangroves occur in Northern Mozambique alone.) And it offers unique species such as the dugong - the rare sea cow found along the coast - and the colourful cyclids, found only in Lake Niassa.

The enormous Niassa Reserve - twice the size of Kruger Park - is home to elephant, sable antelope, lion, leopard, spotted hyena, and African wild dog.

North of Pemba, the port capital of Cabo Delgado Province, curious elephants wander right up to the beach. And the newly created Quirimbas National Park offers ample opportunity to spot the African fish eagle while kayaking along the narrow waterways of the mangroves.

We urge you to uncover all that this unique and untouched part of Africa has to offer. And Chaka adventure safaris hope to be your company to offer you the tour by showing you the best - lodges, activities, itineraries, and attractions - that this region has to offer.

Mozambique is a melting pot of different cultures and traditions and is one of the most exciting heritage destinations on the continent.

Ravaged by civil war for more than ten years, all the villages run down and burnt, all the people fled to neighbouring countries like Malawi, Tanzania and Zambia. Peace have returned to this land and with it the people, it?s amazing to see people picking up their lives once again and making it work.

Investments have come back to Mozambique and with it progress which you can simply see where ever you go. All the new settlements are an indication of the native Mozambicans coming back home.

Ilha de Mozambique has a long history, which dates far back into the 13th century when the Arabic Traders settled here. Because of its location it attracted a lot of merchants and it became the most important trading and shipping post to merchants and traders from Europe, Arabia, India, China and Indonesia.

The influences from all these civilisations can still be seen in the customs, social practices, religion, language, dress, dance, cuisine and architecture of this amazing Island.

There are some fascinating old buildings to explore including the Chapel of Our Lady Constructed in 1522, it is said to be the oldest remaining European building in the southern hemisphere.

Ilha de Mozambique has been classified as a World Heritage Site.

Pemba town is situated on the tip of a peninsula on the southern side of the Bay of Pemba, a semi-enclosed natural harbour which, depending on whom you believe, is the second or third largest in the world. There is hardly a bay to compare with Pemba on the entire Mocambique coast.

The beaches are wide, sandy and clean, and lined with palm trees. A coral reef protects the beach and guarantees safe swimming as well as good snorkelling. Needless to say, Pemba has enormous potential as a tourist resort
