Tanzania

About two weeks ago I went to Bukoba for a funeral, it was my second time in the town and I was as mesmerized as I was the first time; and a week after I was back home, I recommended Bukoba to a fellow traveller who had an extensive itinerary of planned tours around Tanzania which includes going to a water fall in Kigoma. The town is relatively small and less developed than my favourite Arusha town. But it's natural beauty; the preserved nature takes my breath away and brings a calmness to a tired wandering soul; there is something…
My trip to Pangani was 2 years overdue, coincidentally I got a number of a tour guide at a convenient moment. Pangani is about 45-50 kilometers south of Tanga town and is home to Digo, Shirazi, Bondei.

I had no solid plan when I set-off to meet my sisters for my birthday (I don't usually celebrate), after my old school mate and cousin offered to take us to Hyatt-Regency Kilimanjaro hotel (HRK) formerly known as Kempiski-Kilimanjaro for desserts and come what may, it triggered the mission for the next day, cheese cake hunt ;-) At HRK, I was indifferent on what to have so I decided to go with her choice, she picked strawberry cheese cake. I had some reservations about the choice because we don't have the best tasting cheese but we were at the acclaimed…

What happened to him is, he met a stranger who told him that he had gold to sell and a buyer is waiting for him in town. He would give him 10% if he lends him his phone because he had lost his that…
Even though I live in a country that is known for diverse culture and natural resources including wildlife, my greatest challenge to go out on advetures is having enough time and money to travel. My mid-year resolution is therefore to organize weekend getaways to nearby destinations. Last weekend I set off for Karatu, Tanzania. I have never been to the region, had no idea where to sleep or what I will find there. The only thing I knew was that it is the land of the Iraqi people who are close to the Maasai, both being nilots. Armed with the…
