He everyone! I am travelling to Tanzania in June (1.-12.6.2016). Is there anybody who would like to join me? Would be in Dar for some days, then Mikumi National Park? and then Southern part of Tanzania: Iringa, Mbeya and Njombe.
I am travelling to Tanzania in August and would like some recommendations of what to do for part of my trip. My plan is as follows:
Safari (Northern circuit) for 6 or 7 days between 15th-21st
Work in Moshi 22nd, 23rd, 24th and possibly 25th - don't know about the last day yet
Fly home on Monday 29th, possibly on the Etihad 13:35 so I can get into London in time for work on Tuesday morning!
So my question is, with the risk that I may have to work on the 25th (arrive in Zanzibar on the…

Hi everyone, My friend and I would be traveling to kilimanjaro at the end of June, and going to Lusaka Zambia a week after. apparently the flight from kilimanjaro to lusaka costs ~ 330$ AUD, whereas if we bus from kilimanjaro to Dar es salaam then fly from Dar es salaam to lusaka only costs us 200$. we would love to save as much money as possible, however the bus trip from kilimanjaro to Dar es Salaam takes about 10hrs, i am just wondering if anyway have taken the bus between two cities, if so…
I am travelling to Tanzania in August and would like to go on safari (budget/adventure camping) from the 15th to 21st August. I have in mind Tarangire (I LOVE elephants - but then who doesn't?!), Ngorongoro, and the Serengeti. I will need to share the safari with someone or a few people as the one-person private prices are far too high for me. It's my first trip to Tanzania - and to SSAfrica - and I would so love to see the wildlife and the parks.
Note: I have also posted this in the…
we are going to Tanzania end of next week. I was looking for info about boats from Pangani to Zanzibar and the last post I could find on this topic is from 2013.
Who could tell me if there is a ferry or boat from Pangani to Zanzibar?
Thanks a lot
I'm looking for a safe and low-cost (ish?) way to get from Dar es Salaam to Tanzania. It's not easy to get there, at least an 8 hour drive from what I've heard, and any advice would be greatly appreciated! How I wish I knew someone who was going there anyway and I could snag a ride from them...
I'm planning to get the Tazara train from Zambia to Dar es Salaam next Friday, which is due to arrive on Sunday afternoon. Having read this forum and lots of other info, I'm aware that it will not actually be arriving then! I've booked my onward flight for Tuesday morning so I should be okay for most possible delays.
Given the uncertainty of arrival time, my question is about arriving in the middle of the night/early hours of the morning at the Tazara train station. Do you have to vacate the…
Wrote an earlier post about self drive (appears difficult)... Anyway, we are a family of 4 travelling to Tanzania in July. We prefer to book directly with the accommodation / safari lodges where possible.
Can someone please direct me to a source where we can hire a reputable company to cover the ground part of our trip and all other aspects of the non accommodation components ?(park fees etc). Ideally we want to see the following areas staying in a mixture of guest house style lodges for half…
