Tanzania: Maasai Warriors & Wooden Dhows

Hakuna matata: Tanzania exudes the precise ethos of “no worries”. This intoxicating playground integrating a heady mix of nature, culture and scenery guarantees to excite and mesmerize. Superb sailing conditions abound, ideal to make special memories on a luxury superyacht charter. Imagine unique opportunities to meet hospitable Swahili locals, alongside an intriguingly flamboyant culture that is the illustrious Maasai warriors. Ebullient and stimulating, Tanzania promises a winning combination of safaris, outstanding dive sites and historical UNESCO cities. A superyacht charter will take you to a breath-taking destination where incomparable measures of natural riches overflow. This eminent land of safaris is both exciting and welcoming, landscapes glow with diversity and omnipresent wildlife flourishes. Watch ungainly hippos jostle for space in muddy pools, sagacious elephants amble well-trodden paths and headstrong wildebeest run across the plains. Organised boat safaris down the Rufijji River observe somnolent crocodiles at the Selous Game Reserve and at Ruaha National Park spot graceful giraffes amidst aged baobab trees.

Besides exceptional wildlife, Tanzania’s Indian Ocean coastline casts a magic spell of its own. Quiet littoral villages steeped in Swahili values and remotely serene islands create bygone scenes as wooden dhows with flowing sails glide by on the warm breeze. Relaxation comes easy on the powdery beaches flanked by transparent waters and skimmed by glossy palm leaves. The relatively isolated Island of Pemba provides a treasure-chest for divers and snorkellers alike in the Mesali marine park teeming with diverse sealife and vivid coral whilst providiing excellent sheltered waters for anchoring superyachts.

Your superyacht charter in Tanzania can take you to the transcendent spice island of Zanzibar, sprinkled with fragrant clove plantations, mango trees, and idyllic white sand beaches; not to mention the phenomenal sunsets. Wander the warren of narrow streets in the UNESCO world heritage site of Stone Town where buzzing markets and striking mosques generate an inimitable atmosphere.

Where else can you enjoy a hushed balloon flight over the Serengeti savannah plains then the next day swim with titanic whale sharks? Tanzania will create an enchanting and invigorating adventure unlike no other, simply perfect to experience on a superyacht charter.
