If you’re looking for a quiet place to visit while in Tanzania you should take cheap flights to Shinyanga which is located at the northern part of the region specifically at the district of Kahama. Like the other cities in Tanzania, the city of Shinyanga is a generally safe place to visit and though it does not have a lot of interesting attractions, it is a favored tourist stopover because of its nice quiet neighborhood and accessibility due to its own airport.
Nowadays, the internet made booking cheap flights to Shinyanga easier. In just a click of a mouse you can search for a flight option from different airlines servicing the region and pick the one you prefer. Before making a choice though, you should check several travel agency websites and compare several offers. Most of the time promo seats are available on certain dates so if you want to save money on airfare make sure to book for a promo flight. Flying during off-peak season is also more economical so if you don’t have a specific date in mind yet it would be better to avoid peak season. If you have a definite date though, make sure to secure a good promo by booking a flight in advance.
The city is not very popular so you may not find a lot of things to amuse you but if you’re here for a little solitude then Shinyanga is just the right place for you. In here, the people are nice and respectful especially to foreign tourists. They will even go an extra length to entertain you especially if you know how to approach them properly. If you need anything or want to shop for some souvenirs they will willingly help you find the best shopping places in town.
There’s a scarcity of hotels in Shinyanga but if you book in advance you can get a nice comfy room at Karena Hotel. You won’t find any 5-star accommodation though but there are better hotels in the neighboring cities if you want to travel a little. If you hate worrying about accommodation you can opt to book for a flight with bundled hotel accommodation and let your travel agent worry about your lodging.
