Iringa Vacation Packages
Dar es Salaam, the national capital, is 250 miles (402 kilometers) to the east of Iringa.
From big-ticket tourist hotspots to hidden gems slightly off the beaten path, Tanzania is crisscrossed with cultural and natural attractions.
Make the effort to really get to know Tanzania by researching its past. A good way to start is by visiting the area's ruins.
The Iringa area offers loads of excellent ways to get into the great outdoors. Those with a love of adventure can sign up for one of the rock climbing and hiking experiences on offer. There are times when the most enjoyable way to see a place is by tapping into the expertise of locals. This region offers some very informative guided nature walks, wildlife spotting tours and wildlife safaris.
There is no better way to get the core of a place than tasting the local cuisine. Locals in this area commonly make use of ugali (maize porridge) and fish in their cooking. Are you ready to order ugali (cornmeal) or vitumbua (rice cakes)? Both meals are a favorite choice in this region. And when you are ready for dessert, you can't go past kashata ( made from coconut and ground nuts). The bars in Tanzania almost always offer tusker beer, so order one if you enjoy quality beer. If you are after a typical alcohol-free beverage, enjoy the flavors of tamamrind nectar.
No matter how far you travel and no matter how long you have to spend here, wonderful memories of Tanzania will remain with you for a long time.
