Road Tripping Tanzania: Wildlife, Warriors, Whirlwinds… it’s a Different World!

There are many beautiful countries in Africa, in fact, every African country we have visited has taken our breath away, but there is something about Tanzania that gets under your skin, and once you have visited this land of wildlife, warriors and whirlwinds, you begin to look at life a little bit differently.

With Mount Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti Plains, the Ngorongoro Crater, an archipelago of picture-perfect islands, enough National Parks to keep you entertained for a year, and of course, Tanzanite, Tanzania should be one of the richest countries in the world, and yet everywhere you look you see a kind of poverty that one can only read about in Europe.

With no running water, no reliable electricity connection, and in many instances, no job, many Tanzanians living outside the major cities live off the land, farming fruit, vegetable and cattle with what little resources they have…and they do so with the biggest of smiles.

Friendly and accepting of international visitors, the people of Tanzania are the country’s greatest asset, and we can only hope that they will, one day, get their fair share of the country’s wealth.  Here’s a few shots taken on our Tanzanian Road Tripping Adventure between Arusha and Karatu Town…
