For over a century, mountain climbers around the world have flocked to the great volcanic peak of Mt. Kilmanjaro, Africa's tallest mountain.  Part of a national park in Tanzania, the great mountain rises to a peak elevation nearly 6km (almost 4 miles) above sea level, an altitude which does not require oxygen to scale.  In this video, top contributor Scientik used a DJI Phantom drone to chronicle an epic hike/climb to the top of this mighty peak, famously described by novelist Ernest Hemingway.

City of Morogoro




Despite a substantial population of over 55 million as of 2016, the Sub-Saharan African nation of Tanzania has few large urban centers.  One of them is the city of Morogoro, which is situated in the east-central part of the country.  With a population of perhaps 350,000, it's one of a handful of urban areas in the country with over 100k inhabitants.  In this video, contributor MHSkypixel used a DJI Phantom 4 drone to give us a bird's eye view of this city located at the base of the Uluguru mountains.

The Serengeti is one of the great natural treasures of the African continent.  It's mostly located in Tanzania, with a portion in neighboring  Kenya.  The Serengeti is known for being home to one of the largest lion populations in the world, as well as large herds of giraffe, Zebra, and other mammals which are only found on the African continent.  In this video, contributor and drone pilot Yasin Skartt gives us a beautiful bird's eye view of the great grassland area, complete with shots of some of its epic herds.

The great Serengeti, which means "endless plains", is one of the most prominent geographical features of Sub-Saharan Africa.  It covers much of northern Tanzania and part of neighboring Kenya.  The Serengeti is known for having some of the world's largest concentrations of dozens of large mammals (including lions) as well as hundreds of bird species.  In this dronie video by Yassin Skart, you'll get an epic view of the great serengeti, which is considered one of the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa.

Tanzania's Wild Elephants




Aerial views of this parade of elephants, from contributor zekedrone, reveals the strength, loyalty, and beauty of these amazing creatures! High above the plains of Tanzania in Sub-Saharan Africa, we watch as the elephant family roams across the vast landscape sticking together. It's fun to watch as the youngsters of the group quicken their steps to keep up with the elders' longer strides in this video.  This video was selected as a Finalist for the Drone Video of the Week contest in November, 2018.

In this video, content creator and drone pilot Dice Travels takes us to a part of the Eastern Arc Mountains, which run through Tanzania (as well as Kenya) in eastern Africa.  The area covered is called the Usambara Mountains, part of the larger range, which lie in the Tanga Region in the very northeastern corner of the country.  By geological standards, the Usambara's are comparatively young mountains - only two million or so years old.  The area around the mountains is considered rainforest.

Although it is less than a minute in length, this piece by contributor and drone pilot Ty Poland brings you over a dozen aerial views of some of the safari animals in Tanzinia. The east African country is known for its seemingly endless wilderness areas (particularly the vast Serengeti grasslands) and is a home to thousands upon thousands of what are known as the "big five" safari animal species - elephants, rhinos, lions, leopards, and buffalo. We'd call this video an adventure to remember for Ty and his crew.

This drone video from Zanzibar features some of the best aerial footage of kiteboarding we've ever seen.  It was filmed by air tricks prod near the village of Jambiana, which is in the southeastern part of this Tanzanian island territory in the Indian Ocean.  The Indian Ocean is emerging as one of the hot-spots for kiteboarding, an extreme sport that requires tremendous strength and balance and is even more difficult to aerially film than surfing or windsurfing due in part to the very high speeds involved.
