Zanzibar could be as far away as somewhere in Asia or Arabia, like Sinbad the Sailor Open Sesame Land, or Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves as far as they know and as for Tanzania itself,  it is common for people to mix it up with Tasmania!!! Auch!! Some people might even just think it is a name of a local bar in their neighborhood!!

It gets worse, how many people think that the Mount Kilimanjaro is in Kenya, (some blame goes onto the Kenyan tourism authorities for years having marketed Mt. Kili as if it was in Kenya when Tanzania was still a sleeping safari giant, yes the Kenyans promote Mt. Kili as being in their country as you can view Mountain Kilimanjaro across the neighboring countries borders.

Tanzania and Zanzibar are not exactly famous yet as in sports to put us on the map, one of our most famous sportsman and achievements is Filbert Bayi, how many people remember or know him.

We have had one or two other sporting achievements in the marathon and boxing, the national football teams are improving slowing trying to get into the top 100 in Fifa rankings.

Freddy Mercury lead singer and band leader of the famous rock group Queen is considered Zanzibar most famous son, not many people know he  is not even acceptable as a good example to the youth of Zanzibar and therefore not promoted on the Island…

Zanzibar itself apart from being ruled by the Arabs, followed by the Portuguese, Arabs again, Germans and the British could be in anywhere if you used your imagination, but fact is it is in good old black Africa off mainland Tanzania formerly known as Tanganyika which joined in a union with the Island of Zanzibar which consist of Unguja Island and Zanzibar Island together with many other small islands surrounding these two main islands to form the United Republic of Tanzania.

Zanzibar (/ˈzænzɨbɑr/) is the semi-autonomous part of Tanzania in East Africa.

It is composed of the Zanzibar Archipelago in the Indian Ocean, 25–50 kilometres (16–31 mi) off the coast of the mainland, and consists of numerous small islands and two large ones: Unguja (the main island, referred to informally as Zanzibar) and Pemba.

The capital is Zanzibar City, located on the island of Unguja. Its historic centre is Stone Town, which is a World Heritage Site.

Zanzibar Stone Town -6.163446, 39.188597

Zanzibar’s main industries are spices, raffia, and tourism.

In particular, the islands produce cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, and black pepper. For this reason, the islands, together with Tanzania’s Mafia Island, are sometimes called the Spice Islands (a term also associated with the Maluku Islands in Indonesia).

Zanzibar is the home of the endemic Zanzibar Red Colobus Monkey, the Zanzibar Servaline Genet, and the (possibly extinct) Zanzibar Leopard. In 1974, Zanzibar became the first area in Africa to introduce color television.

ZANZIBAR, an East African seaport, capital of the island and sultanate of the same name, in 6° 9′ S., 39° 15′ E.

The town is situated on the western side of the island, 26 m. N.E. of the mainland port of Bagamoyo, which is visible from Zanzibar in very clear weather.

Zanzibar is built on a triangular-shaped peninsula about a mile and a half long which runs from east to west, forming a safe and spacious road-stead or bay with a minimum depth of water exceeding five fathoms.

Ocean steamers anchor in the road-stead and are loaded and discharged by lighters. The harbor, frequented by British, German and French steamers, warships and Arab dhows, affords a constant scene of animation.

Viewed from the sea, the town presents a pleasant prospect with its mosques, white flat-topped houses, barracks, forts, and round towers.

The most prominent buildings are the Sultan’s palace and the Government offices (formerly the British consulate), the last-named situated at the Point, the south-west horn of the bay.

To the left of the palace – viewed from the sea – is the “stone ship,” a series of water tanks (now disused) the front of which is cleverly carved to resemble a ship.

The town consists of two quarters, Shangani, the centre of trade and residence of the sultan, and the eastern suburb, formerly separated from the rest of the town by the Malagash lagoon, an inlet of the sea, now drained.

For the most part Zanzibar consists of a labyrinth of narrow and dirty streets, in which live the Banyans, Singalese, the negro porters, fishermen and half-castes.

There are numerous markets. In Shangani are the houses of the European merchants and the chief Arabs, and the headquarters of various Protestant and Roman Catholic missions.

Characteristic of the streets are the carved and massive wooden doors, whose blackness contrasts with the white stone of the houses, and the bright red of the acacias in the garden enclosures.

Ndia Kun or Main Road extends from the Sultan’s palace to the (new) British Agency at Mnazi Moja, a castellated building situated in beautiful grounds.

Along this thoroughfare are the custom house, the post office buildings (an imposing edifice) and several consulates. In a turning off Main Street is the residence of Tippoo Tib (now an hotel).

Next to this house is the English Club, and in the same street are the law courts (built 1909-10).

The Anglican cathedral (built 1873-79) a semi-Gothic coral building, occupies the site of the old slave market. The Roman Catholic cathedral – in the Renaissance style – is one of the finest buildings in East Africa.

On the outskirts of the town at Mnazi Moja is a public park, a golf course and cricket ground.

Zanzibar is well supplied with pure water brought from the neighboring hills. Submarine cables connect Zanzibar with all parts of the world; whilst lines of steamships from Europe and India make it a regular port of call.

It was not, however, until 1910 that direct steamship communication with London was established.

If only they opened their atlases in that geography lesson where even the teacher thinks our Tanzanian Great Kilimanjaro Mountain is in Kenya – better do your home work and research where Tanzania and Zanzibar is instead of relying just on what the good intended teacher teaches, we are all human, s… happens if you do not do your own research.

Authorities on Zanzibar Island are not keen in promoting any Freddie Mercury / Queen Festivals.

It is a known fact he was gay and it is alleged that he passed away with the so called killer virus HIV and thus Freddy Mercury does not make a good role model to youths on Zanzibar Island.

Mercury was born on the British protectorate of Sultanate of Zanzibar, East Africa (now part of Tanzania).

His parents, Bomi and Jer Bulsara, were Parsis from the Gujarat region of the then province of Bombay Presidency in British India.

The family surname is derived from the town of Bulsar (also known as Valsad) in southern Gujarat.

As Parsis, Mercury and his family practiced the Zoroastrian religion.

The Bulsara family had moved to Zanzibar so that his father could continue his job as a cashier at the British Colonial Office.

He had a younger sister, Kashmira.

Freddie Mercury Documentary (2013)

Mercury spent the bulk of his childhood in India and began taking piano lessons at the age of seven.

In 1954, at the age of eight, Mercury was sent to study at St. Peter’s School, a British-style boarding school for boys in Panchgani near Bombay (now Mumbai), India.

One of his formative musical influences at the time was Bollywood singer Lata Mangeshkar.

At the age of 12, he formed a school band, The Hectics, and covered rock and roll artists such as Cliff Richard and Little Richard.

A friend from the time recalls that he had “an uncanny ability to listen to the radio and replay what he heard on piano”.

It was also at St. Peter’s where he began to call himself “Freddie”.

Mercury remained in India, living with his grandmother and aunt until he completed his education at St. Mary’s School, Bombay.

At the age of 17, Mercury and his family fled from Zanzibar for safety reasons due to the 1964 Zanzibar Revolution, in which thousands of Arabs and Indians were killed.

The family moved into a small house in Feltham, Middlesex, England.

Mercury enrolled at Isleworth Polytechnic (now West Thames College) in West London where he studied art.

He ultimately earned a Diploma in Art and Graphic Design at Ealing Art College (now the Ealing campus of University of West London) later using these skills to design the Queen crest.

A British citizen at birth, Mercury remained so for the rest of his life.

Following graduation, Mercury joined a series of bands and sold second-hand clothes in the Kensington Market in London with girlfriend Mary Austin.

He also held a job at Heathrow Airport.

Friends from the time remember him as a quiet and shy young man who showed a great deal of interest in music.

In 1969 he joined the Liverpool based band, Ibex, later renamed Wreckage.

He lived briefly in a flat above the Liverpool pub, The Dovedale Towers.

When this band failed to take off, he joined a second band called Sour Milk Sea. However, by early 1970 this group had broken up as well.

In April 1970, Mercury joined guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor who had previously been in a band called Smile.

Despite reservations of the other members and Trident Studios, the band’s initial management, Mercury chose the name “Queen” for the new band.

He later said about the band’s name, “I was certainly aware of the gay connotations, but that was just one facet of it”.

At about the same time, he changed his surname, Bulsara, to Mercury.

Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh BulsaraGujaratiPharōkh Balsārā‌; 5 September 1946 – 24 November 1991) was a British musician, record producer, and singer-songwriter, best known as the lead vocalist and lyricist of the rock band Queen.

As a performer, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and powerful vocals over a four-octaverange.

As a songwriter, he composed many hits for Queen, including “Bohemian Rhapsody“, “Killer Queen“, “Somebody to Love“, “Don’t Stop Me Now“, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love“, and “We Are the Champions“.

In addition to his work with Queen, he led a solo career, and also occasionally served as a producer and guest musician (piano or vocals) for other artists.

He died of bronchopneumonia brought on by AIDS on 24 November 1991, only one day after publicly acknowledging he had the disease.

Mercury was a Parsi born in Sultanate of Zanzibar and grew up there and in India until his mid-teens.

Freddy Mercury Zanzibar Island Most Famous Son Castaway

Posthumously, in 1992 he was awarded the Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to British Music, and the Freddie Mercury Tribute Concert was held at Wembley Stadium, London.

As a member of Queen, he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2003, the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2004, and the band received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002.

Also in 2002, Mercury was placed at number 58 in the BBC’s poll of the 100 Greatest Britons.

Freddy Mercury Zanzibar Island Most Famous Son Castaway

He continues to be voted one of the greatest singers in the history of popular music. In 2005, a poll organised by Blender and MTV2 saw Mercury voted the greatest male singer of all time.

In 2008, Rolling Stone editors ranked him number 18 on their list of the 100 greatest singers of all time.

In 2009, a Classic Rock poll saw him voted the greatest rock singer of all time.

AllMusic has characterized Mercury as “one of rock’s greatest all-time entertainers”, who possessed “one of the greatest voices in all of music”

10 things you never knew about Freddie Mercury.

Tanzania’s Filbert Bayi a National Sporting Hero

Filbert Bayi Sanka (born June 23, 1953) is a former Tanzanian middle-distance runner of the 1970s who set the world records for 1500 metres in 1974 and the mile in 1975.

He is still the 1500 m Commonwealth Games record holder.

Tanzania's Filbert Bayi a National Sporting Hero

Tanzania’s Filbert Bayi a National Sporting Hero

1974 Commonwealth Games 1500m

Bayi’s run here was not just eyeballs out from the start.

His tactics were smart too.

The first lap of 54.4 built a big lead and lap 2 was to maintain it. 1:51.8 to 800m was unbelievable for that era!

But Bayi was even smarter, as he dawdles lap 3 in 59 secs, looking over his shoulder to make sure of the gap.

This is so he can use his reserves to kick in a sub 56 sec last lap,

John Walker and Filbert Bayi fight for medals!

Bayi / Walker: 1500m. WR. (New Edit)1974 Commonwealth Games, NZ

Four decades on and this is still probably the greatest championship 1500 metres run ever, the Tanzanian Filbert Bayi knocking nearly a seconf off of Jim Ryun’s seven year old world record,followed closely home, also under the old mark, by the great Kiwi runner John Walker.

Few finals could compare….maybe Lovelock’s Olympic title in ’36, or Elliott’s in ’60.

Maybe,but I really cannot imagine another runner than Bayi who would think they could front run a final in this manner.

Landy tried it 20 years previously running for this title in “The Mile Of The Century”but was ultimately caught by Bannister.

Bayi is truly unique. I don’t think the world has ever seen a runner with his raw courage, and I doubt we will again in my life time. He was the purest of runners, rabbit and racer combined into one. Imagine what he could have accomplished if he hadn’t been constantly battling malaria.

He’s my favorite runner of all time.

1975 Miracle Mile: Filbert Bayi runs 3:51.0

Filbert Bayi of Tanzania ends Jim Ryun’s long reign as World Record Holder in the Mile, clocking 3:51.0!

Notable in the race is a relative newcomer to the world scene, a youngster named Eamonn Coghlan.

Born in Arusha, Tanzania, his greatest moment was arguably the 1500 m final at the 1974 Commonwealth Games in Christchurch, New Zealand, when he won the gold medal ahead of New Zealand runner John Walker and Kenyan Ben Jipcho. Bayi set a new world record of 3 min 32.16 s, ratified by the IAAF as 3:32.2, and Walker went under the old world record set by Jim Ryun as well.

Third place Jipcho, fourth place Rod Dixon, and fifth place Graham Crouch also ran the fourth, fifth, and seventh fastest 1500 m times to that date. It is still classed as one of the greatest 1500 m races of all time.

There was no jockeying for position in the race; Bayi led from the beginning in a fast pace and was 20 metres ahead at 800 metres, the other runners strung out in a line behind him.

Celebrations extend to three days of enjoyment. While in India, Eid UL Fitr calls for a one day holiday all across the country.

Eid, popularly known as Eid-ul-Fitr, is a festival observed by the Muslim community to celebrate the conclusion of the month of fasting.

Eid-ul-Fitr literally means ‘festival of breaking the fast’.

Like other festivals observed by the Muslim community, this festival symbolizes faith. The festival is celebrated based on an Islamic belief by following the form of social practice.

Eid is celebrated on the first date of Shawwal, that is, the tenth month of the Hijra calendar.

During the festival, Muslims exchange gifts, greeting their neighbours as a mark of solidarity and brotherhood.

According to the Islamic tradition, there are two festivals observed by Muslims every year – Eid-ul-Fitr just after Ramzan and Eid-ul-Zuha in the month of Haj.

Ramzan, the month of fasting, symbolizes a lot practices and beliefs of the community. It is not merely restraining oneself from having food but also to abstain from all kinds of evil and unlawful practices in Islam.

Muslims, just before the celebrations of Eid-ul-Fitr, keep a month long fast throughout the month of Ramzan.

The practice of fasting is also known as ‘roza’ that starts from the break of dawn till dusk and during this whole day an individual has to refrain himself from drinking, eating or having sexual intercourse.

The term ‘roza’ us an Arabic word means abstinence. This year Eid-ul-Fitr will be celebrated on August 20 to mark the end of Ramzan, the Islamic holy month of fasting.

Many Muslims believe that fasting reminds a sense of responsibility within themselves.

The month long fasting ends with the festival of Eid-ul-Fitr that symbolizes a reward for their fasting.

Muslims on this day wear their best clothers and offer ‘namaz’ a congregational prayer at masjids or mosques.

After offering their prayers they exchange good wishes of the festival with their neighbours and other people. They also donate alms to the poor on the auspicios occasion.

The celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr not only has religious essence but also carries a social connotation.

Like other festivals, Eid-ul-Fitr is also observed with great enthusiasm. Delicious food and drinks are an indispensable part of the festivity.

People decoare their houses and prepare luscious traditional sweets and cuisines to celebrate the festival.

The most common recipe in this festival is the delicious meethi seviyan (Sweet Vermicelli) prepared from various healthy and mouth-watering ingredients.

Moreover, ahead the festival, the markets are filled with fascinating items in the shopping list for Eid.

Fancy and food items mostly dominate the festival and as the festival approaches excitement to celebrate gains momentum not only with Muslims but also with shopkeepers and traders doing a brisk business.

The celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr is no-doubt perks up the spirit inherent in all the festivity.

The significance of this festival is also interpreted as a good time to bring people together in harmony and gratitude.

The Nissan Patrol is a series of large four-wheel drive vehicles manufactured by Nissan in Japan since 1951.

The Patrol is generally regarded as a tough and utilitarian 4×4 in Australia and New Zealand, the Middle East, Latin America, Africa, Europe, Japan, and the Caribbean, where it competes directly with the Toyota Land Cruiser which is its main rival in those markets.

In the United States and Canada, it competes in the luxury SUV segment where it carries the upscaleInfiniti brand.

The Patrol has been available as either a short-wheelbase (SWB) three-door or a long-wheelbase (LWB) five-door chassis.

The LWB version has also been offered in utility and cab chassis variants alongside the wagon.

Between 1988 and 1994, Ford Australia marketed the Patrol as the Ford Maverick.

The Maverick was available alongside the Nissan-branded Patrol. Also, in some European countries the Patrol was, for a short while marketed as Ebro Patrol.

Since 1980, in Japan, it has been known as the Nissan Safari (日産・サファリ). The Patrol is available in Australia, Central and South America, South Africa, parts of Southeast Asia and Western Europe as well as Iran and the Middle East but not in North America as the Nissan Armada fills in the affordable Full-size SUV sector.

In 2010, it became available in North America as the upscale 2011 Infiniti QX56, which had shared the same platform as the US-built Nissan Armada from 2004 to 2010.

The second generation Y60 (GQ) platform is still manufactured as a military vehicle in the countries of Asia and the Middle East, and various versions of the Patrol are widely used by United Nations agencies.

These Y61 models are produced alongside the current Y62. The fourth and fifth generations are the main troop transport vehicles used by the Irish Army.

03) Tanzania Safari Bed night Levy: $15 per person per night.

This can be arranged by the Lodge or any registered Tour Operator.

As a long term Tanzania Safari Tour Operator we are forced to increase the rates for these camps/lodges with $15 per person, starting from the date of 01st, August 2014 onward.

All the customers who will pay us before that date will not be involved.

This amount will from now on be automatically added to our invoices.

For all existing bookings with an arrival date after 1.08.2014 we will send a separate invoice to cover for the new WMA bed night levy.

We apologize very much for the sudden introduction of these extra costs, and we realize this might cause you a lot of inconvenience for you as our esteemed customer/Agent.

You are free to comment to any Tanzanian, Kenyan, Ugandan, and other foreign newspapers or TV stations i.e;

Washington Post, Daily Nation, Daily News, New York Times, New York Post, US Today, The Guardian, Independent, Daily mail, Daily Express, Daily Mirror, Daily Star, East African business week, 256 news.com, TV Citizen, East African TV, KBC, TBC, ITV, BBC, CNN,

NOTE: If you have any other questions regarding this issue, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

We are by 100% affected by these laws and I think Tourism business in Tanzania comes to an end. 

This is due to other safaris countries as our competition already have cheaper fees and Tanzania Safari rates are simply on a constant raise.

The Serengeti National Park Safari is nearly a whole days safari driving from Arusha.

Serengeti National Park Safari Quick Facts:

  • Migration crosses Tanzania and Kenya
  • Spans 18,641.1 square miles (30,000 sq km)
  • Longest and largest over land migration in the world
  • The name Serengeti means “endless plains”

From Arusha when going on a Serengeti National Park Safari you have to drive almost to Tarangire National Park before turning north towards Lake Manyara National Park which you drive past and start climbing and heading for the Ngorongoro Crater Rim which you drive along on your way towards your Serengeti National Park Safari.

Roads are excellent all tarmac until you get to Ngorongoro and from the entrance get the roads become all weather roads.

As you drive around the crater rim and head our of the Ngorongoro towards a Serengeti National Park Safari, the roads seem to deteriorate further and any way the spped limits are set at a maximum of 50km per hour, so really to see and do a Serengeti National Park Safari  you have to have time.

For a Serengeti National Park Safari for 4 days is our recommended minimum and our safari itineraries usually take in the Lake Manyara National Park or the Tarangire National Park as you head for your Serengeti National Park Safari, with the Ngorongoro Crater saved for last as you drive along its rim to get to your Serengeti National Park Safari.

We can of course customize any safari for you including the Serengeti National Park Safari, tailor making it to your requirements.

Serengeti National Park Safari is an odd 290km from Arusha Town.

Therefore if you do no mind not rushing through your Serengeti National Park Safari, your Serengeti National Park Safari requires a minimum of 4 days.

This is our recommended to see the Serengeti National Park.

Unless of course we use a helicopter if you are in a rush!!!

Anything less than 4 days and 3 nights for a Serengeti National Park Safari would be to much wear and tear on vehicles and the human body…….

In Tanzania there is a saying in Kiswahili that goes like this…

“Haraka Haraka Haina Baraka”– literally meaning Hurry, Hurry (Rush, Rush) Has No Blessings.

I like this saying and in truth you do not want with your rush to come head to head with any wildlife, not even a snake or a tortoise, imagine coming through a curve at 90km per hour or more and straight infront of you is a herd of elephants crossing the road, baby elephants with protective Mama Jumbo let alone Baba Jumbo who is having a laid back day as usual and with your rush rush you go and ruin their day:0).

Auch it is not a position you want to be in on your Serengeti National Park Safari.

Our Serengeti National Park Safari start and end in Arusha Town.

Did you know that there are some places on Earth that look so surreal that you’d think they were from another planet? 

Whilst on a Serengeti National Park Safari you will surely soon realize you have entered such a power point/location as I like to call it, especially if you have time on you Serengeti National Park Safari and take an extra day to go further north and spend a night in the Lobo area where the migration comes steaming down every year.

Take a look at these alien landscapes that can actually be found closer to home than you might think! 

Serengeti National Park Safari is certainly Tanzania’s most famous national park classic safari, and it’s also the largest national park, covering 14,763 square kilometers of protected area that borders Kenya’s Maasai Mara Game Park.

Its far-reaching plains of endless grass, tinged with the twisted shadows of acacia trees, have made it the quintessential image of a wild and untarnished Africa.

Its large stone kopjes are home to rich ecosystems, and the sheer magnitude and scale of life that the plains support is staggering.

On a Serengeti National Park Safari large prides of lions laze easily in the long grasses, plentiful families of elephants feed on acacia bark and trump to each other across the plains, and giraffes, gazelles, monkeys, eland, and the whole range of African wildlife is in awe-inspiring numbers.

The annual wildebeest migration through the Serengeti and the Maasai Mara has been declared as one of the Natural Wonders of Africa.

This migration entices visitors from around the world, who flock to the open plains to witness the largest mass movement of land mammals on the planet.

More than a million animals make the seasonal journey to fresh pasture to the north, then the south, after the biannual rains.

The sound of their thundering hooves, raising massive clouds of thick red dust, has become one of the legends of the Serengeti plains.

The entire ecosystem thrives from the annual migration; the lions and birds of prey that gorge themselves on the weak ones as well as the faltering to the gamut of hungry crocodiles that lie in patient waiting at each river crossing for their annual feed.

But it’s not just the wildebeest that use the Serengeti National Park Safari as a migratory pathway.

The adjacent reserves of Maswa and Ikorongo; the Ngorongoro Conservation Area and the Masai Mara Game Reserve in Kenya all allow the animals and birds of the area a free range of movement to follow their seasonal migrations.

Indeed, in the wake of the wildebeest migration, many of the less attention-grabbing features of the Serengeti are often overlooked.

Serengeti National Park Safari, the park has varied zones in which each ecosystem is subtly different. Seronera in the centre of the park is the most popular and most easily visited area.

The Grumeti River in the Western Corridor is the location for the dramatic river crossing during the wildebeest migration.

Maswa Game Reserve to the south offers a remote part of the park rewarding in its game-viewing and privacy, and Lobo near the Kenyan border offers a change to see plentiful game during the dry season.

Aside from traditional vehicle bound safaris, hot-air ballooning over the Serengeti plains has become a safari rite-of-passage for travel enthusiasts.

The flights depart at dawn over the plains and take passengers close over the awakening herds of wildebeest, zebra, gazelle and giraffe.

The extra altitude allows guests to witness the striking stretches of plains punctuated only by kopjes. Up in the sky, you have Africa all to yourself!

7 Natural Wonders of Africa: Serengeti Migration

The Serengeti Migration was officially declared as one of the 7 Natural Wonders of Africa February 11, 2013 in Arusha, Tanzania.

Votes were cast by experts from around the world who noted the key statistical significance.

The Serengeti Migration is a wonder of nature shared between Tanzania and Kenya.

The Serengeti Migration received the most votes along with the most #1 votes making it the most recognized wonder of nature.

Serengeti Migration
The Serengeti migration is the longest and largest over land migration in the world.

The Serengeti plains account for over 18,641 square miles and the migration itself travels 500 miles on the path from Tanzania to the Masai Mara Reserve in Kenya.

Approximately 80% of the Seregeti plains are protected by the Tanzanian and Kenyan governments.

The Serengeti is home to over 70 larger mammals and approximately 500 different types of birds.

Probably the most impressive part of the migration is the herds of wildebeests that blanket the plains. The migration will kill off around 250,000 wildebeests each year.

Best way to see and experience the Serengeti Migration

The most intimate encounter with with wildlife of the Serengeti National Park Safari and the migration will come from the exploration inside a safari jeep.

If you are looking at watching the wildebeest and other animals crossing the river, then you will need to plan on having patience.

“Hakuna Haraka” – No Hurry – on a Serengeti National Park Safari.

The animals may graze for hours and days on end before taking the swim across the river. It may mean just sitting in your Land Rover or other safari vehicle and watching.

If you are fortunate to experience the river crossing, keep your eyes peeled to river banks and wildlife swimming because the crocodiles have been waiting and know they are coming.

Witnessing a crocodile capture a wildebeest and wrestle their prize home is an exhilarating experience.

The same could be said for following the migrating animals.

The lions and other predators know the season and in the hunting mode. Keep your eyes on the stragglers and loners because the predators have their eyes on those too.

Witnessing a lion hunting and killing part of the migration is usually more exciting than the crocodiles making their kill. All of this usually requires lots of patience and watching.

Another serene experience is ballooning over the Serengeti whilst on a Serengeti National Park Safari.

This adventure allows you to recognize the grandeur and size of both the Serengeti itself and the expanse of the migrating wildlife whilst on a Serengeti National Park Safari.

The balloon will usually land somewhere with a breakfast waiting for you out in the Serengeti.

Mikumi is perhaps the most accessible and popular of Tanzania’s national parks. The main feature in here is the open grasslands of the Mikumi flood plain which is bordered on two sides by mountain ranges.

On the southern end one can spot the yellow baboon, impalas, reedbucks and other antelope.

Some distance to the north are the Hippo Pools dominated by hippo, as well as a variety of water birds.

The area around these pools is open plain where you can see all kinds of game from the Lichtenstein’s hartebeest to the somewhat rare wild dog.

Black-bellied bustards, ground hornbills and black turkeys are also found on the plains. There are two other major water holes, Mkata and Chamgore (‘place of the python’). Here there are saddle-bill stork, hammerkop, malachite kingfisher and the deadly writhing python.

Mikumi National Park, Tanzania -7.226249, 37.158508

The pink Jacaranda is one of the most beautiful trees in this part of the park which is dotted by small glades of Hyphaene palm, shady figs and occasional baobab.

Many trails lead across black cotton soil which transforms to nightmarish bog during the wet season. On the far eastern side of the plains the black-backed jackal is a common predator – this is one of the few mammal species that mates for life.

The park cover an area of 3230 sq km. There is a lot of wildlife in this park including elephant, buffalo, giraffe, lions, antelope and over 400 bird species.

Mikumi National Park is the closest National Park to Dar es Salaam and is nestled between the Uluguru mountains to the northeast, and the Rubeho mountains, Udzungwa mountains and Rift Valley escarpment to the south west.

As part of the Selous ecosystem, it benefits from the highest game density of the entire conservation area.

Not only is Mikumi a great place for ‘getting your eye in’ on game drives, but it is also a fantastically colourful place. The open grasslands stretching out before you change through the spectrum of orange and yellows throughout the day.

There are high concentrations of game, with large herds of Nyasa Blue Wildebeest, (not found in Ruaha National Park), buffalo, impala, zebra and giraffe.

Where there are large herds, there are always plenty of predators waiting for dinner.

Mikumi was gazetted as a National Park in 1964 and is named after the spindle shaped Borassus palm trees.

The Mkata plain supports vast herds of plains game such as wildebeest, impala, zebra and giraffe, hunted by their associated predators; while you are more likely to find Lichtenstein’s hartebeest, greater kudu, roan and sable antelope in the surrounding less fertile hills.

Although game sightings can never be guaranteed, there are lots of sightings of the African ‘wild dog’ hunting the plains in packs.

Zanzibar Island- The Queen of Sheba Legend

Zanzibar Island- The Queen of Sheba Legend

Zanzibar Island- The Queen of Sheba Legend

Once upon a time..

The Sea said to the Queen of Sheba while at high seas, “promise you return again”

She threw her Perl necklace into the Sea and the Sea said “that’s not enough”

She then threw two treasure chests into the Sea which sprang open and from these treasures the Magic Islands of Zanzibar were formed…

Zanzibar Island- The Queen of Sheba Legend

Zanzibar Island is part of the East African republic of Tanzania .

It consists of the Zanzibar Archipelago in the Indian Ocean, 25–50 km (15–30 mi) off the coast off the mainland.

There are numerous small islands and two large ones: Unguja (the main island, informally referred to as “zanzibar”), and pemba.

Zanzibar was once a separate state with a long trading history within the Arab world; it united with Tanganyika to form Tanzania, and still enjoys a high degree of autonomy within the union.

The capital of Zanzibar, located on the island of Unguja, is Zanzibar City, and its old quarter, known as stone town, is a World Heritage Site.

Zanzibar Island -6.165917, 39.202641 Zanzibar Island

Zanzibar’s main industries are spices, raffia, and tourism.

It is still sometimes referred to as the Spice Islands, a term also associated with the Maluku Islands in Indonesia, because of the significance of its production of cloves, of which it is the world leader, and also nutmeg, cinnamon and pepper.

The ecology is of note for being the home of the endemic Zanzibar Red Colobus and the elusive Zanzibar Leopard.

The word “zanzibar” probably derives from the Persian زنگبار, Zangi-bar (“coast of the blacks”); it is known as Zanji-bar (زنجبار) in Arabic.

Zanzibar Island Coasts are one of the most ideal place for beach holidays and honeymoons.

Zanzibar Island has a large number of beach and Stone Town hotels of different categories to cater for all classes of travelers.

Our Zanzibar Island Hotels, Resorts, lodgings and accommodation and safari camp is a guideline as to the location of hotel and the room rates.

This may be basically divided into:

1. Stone Town Hotels, which have few sporting facilities and rarely have a garden but are steeped in character.

2. Zanzibar Island Out of town beach hotels: these are more modern, generally set in fine gardens by the beach, and offering a variety of water sports.

On Zanzibar Island as a rule the east coast beaches are more beautiful but they face the prevailing winds and as a result the seas here are rougher.

The best hotels in Zanzibar Island will be found in the North East, South East and some in the North whilst Pemba island, has a fantastic lodge, fundu lagoon pemba island which you have to check out.

A night or two in Stone Town will complete your trip to Zanzibar, and might be a necessity, depending on your flight schedules.

If you are into cultural activities, you might want to spend more than a night in Stone Town, as this is where it all happens.

The north coast, the east coast and the North East coast of Zanzibar offer the best places for relaxation and water sports.

The east coast of Zanzibar Island is famous for its pristine palm fringed beaches,-miles and miles of it as far as the eyes could see.

For the full Zanzibar experience we would recommend selecting a property in Stone Town for a few days followed by a property on the beach.

Please remember that some of the smaller properties are very popular, so book early!

Tanzania Buses Arusha, Dar es Salaam, Mbeya, Iringa, Mwanza, Moshi, Tanga, Nairobi, Mombasa, Kampala daily.

Tanzania Buses Arusha, Dar es Salaam, Mbeya, Iringa, Mwanza, Moshi, Tanga, Nairobi, Mombasa, Kampala daily.

The bus is a great way to get into Tanzania.

Fly to a place like Nairobi, then you can catch a bus down to Arusha a great base for Mount Meru and Ngorongoro Crater.

Also, you should not forget the south central part of Tanzania, away from tourist hawkers.

Roads in Tanzania aren’t in good condition; there are no highways, and there are very few multiple lane segments along main roads.

Tanzania Buses slow down or stop in most villages because of traffic, police, and speed calming tools.

For your reference, the trip from Dar to Iringa takes at least 6 hours in a private vehicle.

It’s mostly a two-lane road, recently rebuilt by the Chinese, so it’s in good condition for the most part.

Westbound and northbound buses leaving from Dar ply the same road (A7) until you get to Chalinze, which is about halfway, less than two hours, between Dar and Morogoro.

If you are going to Arusha, the bus will veer north on the A17.

Tanzania Buses Arusha, Dar es Salaam, Mbeya, Iringa, Mwanza, Moshi, Tanga, Nairobi, Mombasa, Kampala daily.

Tanzania Buses Arusha, Dar es Salaam, Mbeya, Iringa, Mwanza, Moshi, Tanga, Nairobi, Mombasa, Kampala daily.

Other notable destinations along this route are Saandani National Park, Pangani, Tanga, Lushoto, Kilimanjaro, and Moshi.

From Arusha, you can also take a bus to Mwanza and Kigoma, but once you’ve past the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, the roads are in extremely poor condition, and you are in for a bumpy ride.

If you continue on past Chalinze you’ll pass by Morogoro (also the turn off for Dodoma), the entry point into the Selous Game Reserve, Mikumi National Park, the old main gate to Udzungwa Mountains Parks, and Iringa, which is the turn off for Ruaha National Park.

Iringa is the place to explore the southern circuit, with a new campsite at the Msosa gate to the Uduzungwas (the Iringa side of the park) and the gateway to Ruaha (possibly Tanzania’s best park).

It is a great place to stay for a few days.

After Iringa, you’ll either go west, to Mbeya, or south, to Songea. Head to Mbeya if you want to either visit Lake Tanganyika, enter into Malawi, or head north to Kigoma.

North of Mbeya, the roads aren’t sealed, so it will be a long and very unpleasant trip.

If you want to see Lake Nyasa (a.k.a. Lake Malawi), take the bus to Songea.

Although you are within a stone’s throw of Mozambique, there are no official entry points into Mozambique.

Tanzania Buses Arusha, Dar es Salaam, Mbeya, Iringa, Mwanza, Moshi, Tanga, Nairobi, Mombasa, Kampala daily.

Tanzania Buses Arusha, Dar es Salaam, Mbeya, Iringa, Mwanza, Moshi, Tanga, Nairobi, Mombasa, Kampala daily.

Finally, if you’re headed south of Dar, then you’ll take the B2.

This is the main route to the Selous and the Rufiji River.

Along the way, you can also stop in Kilwa, Lindi, and, finally, Mtwara. The road isn’t sealed the whole way, so, again, bring on a cushion.

Outside Dar, roads between other cities and villages are in very poor condition, although they are slowly being improved.

For instance, traveling from Arusha to Dodoma is slow.

It can be faster to return to Chalinze and then board a bus to Dodoma.

This is pretty much the case for any travel between cities that are not located along the road to Dar.

The border town of Namanga is a hectic outpost that epitomizes much of Africa.

The bus even waits here for you to cross the border.

You can even get off on the Kenyan side, walk across the border, and get on the bus again on the Tanzanian side.

From Dar by bus it is also possible to travel to Malawi, Uganda, and Rwanda.

See specific cities for more information about the bus lines that serve them.

Tahmeed Buses connect Mombasa with Tanga and Dar in Tanzania.

Royal Coach travels to Arusha, and is one of the nicest buses available.

Dar Express services many cities, including Nairobi, Kenya.

Sumry connect the beautiful southern part of Tanzania, Iringa and Mbeya to Dar and further S.W.

Buses which connects Arusha, Dar es Salaam, Mbeya, Iringa, Mwanza, Moshi, Tanga, Nairobi etc. daily.

Buses regularly go from Mombasa to Dar es Salaam (12 hours), Nairobi to Dar es Salaam (about 13 hours), Nairobi to Arusha (5 hours), and Voi to Moshi.

Some bus companies originating in Arusha will drop you off at your hotel in Nairobi and also offer pick-ups at Nairobi’s international airport.

To and From Malawi: The border crossing between Tanzania and Malawi is at the Songwe River Bridge.

Direct buses between Dar es Salaam and Lilongwe depart several times a week and take around 27 hours.

Your other alternative is to get to the border crossing and take minibuses in either direction to the closest towns — Karonga in Malawi and Mbeya in Tanzania.

Spend the night and then continue on the next day. Both towns have regular long-distance bus services.

To and From Mozambique: The main border post is at Kilambo (Tanzania) which you can get to via minibus from Mtwara.

To cross the border requires a trip across the Ruvuma River and depending on the tides and the season, this could be a simple quick canoe trip or an hour long ferry ride. The border post in Mozambique is at Namiranga.

To and From Uganda: Daily buses travel from Kampala to Dar es Salaam (via Nairobi — so make sure you get a visa for Kenya to transit).

The bus trip takes at least 25 hours.

A more manageable crossing is from Kampala to Bukoba (on the shores of Lake Victoria) which gets you to Tanzania in about 7 hours.

You can also take a short 3 hour trip by bus from Bukoba (Tanzania) to the Ugandan border town of Masaka.

Scandinavian also runs buses from Moshi to Kampala (via nairobi).

To and From Rwanda: Regional coach services travels from Kigali to Dar es Salaam at least once a week, the trip takes about 36 hours and crosses into Uganda first.

Shorter trips between the Tanzania/Rwanda border at Rusumo Falls are possible but the security situation fluctuates so inquire locally in Benako (Rwanda) or Mwanza (Tanzania).

Buses also run at least once a day from Mwanza (it will take all day) to the border of Rwanda, and from there you can catch a minibus to Kigali.

Catching the bus from Mwanza means a ferry trip to start with so the schedule is fairly fixed.

To and From Zambia: Buses run a couple times a week between Dar es Salaam and Lusaka (about 30 hours) and between Mbeya and Lusaka (about 16 hours).

The border that is used most often is at Tunduma and you can get minibuses from Mbeya to Tunduma and then cross into Zambia and take public transport from there.

We wish we could say that train travel was a classic Tanzania experience, watching the landscapes roll by and getting a snapshot of local life, but the country’s rail lines are so under-maintained these days, and so often beset by delays and breakdowns, that it would be too much of a stretch – but if you get lucky, you’re likely to enjoy the ride.

Once planned privatization and upgrading programs are implemented, the situation is bound to improve.

The Tanzania – Zambia train service, known as TAZARA, operates trains three times a week between New Kapiri Mposhi, Zambia, and Dar es Salaam, leaving from Dar es Salaam on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.

A domestic railroad network links the country’s major cities, including Kigoma, Mwanza, Dodoma, Tabora, and Dar es Salaam.

The domestic train service is usually unreliable, and ticket prices are affordable.

Ticket prices differ, however, according to ‘class’, typically first, second, and third.

First and second classes offer cabins with two and four beds, respectively.

Third class is open seating.

Hot meals and beverages are usually available from the dining car.

It is not uncommon for the train kitchen to purchase fresh produce at many of the stopping points along the way.

It is also possible to purchase fruit and snacks directly from local vendors who frequent the many train stations on each of Tanzania’s many train routes.

Train Tickets have to be booked in advance and we can supply tickets either way from Dar es Salaam to Kapiri Mposhi just outside Lusaka or the other way around from Zambia Kapiri Mposhi to Dar es Salaam.

Tanzania Trains Tazara Railways Tickets and Info to Zambia and Mbeya

Tanzania Trains Tazara Railways Tickets and Info to Zambia and Mbeya

Please be warned, the train is notoriously unreliable especially from south to north and can be 15 hours late getting into its destination.

It is a two day journey in any case, through the Selous National Reserve and we recommend you have enough time on your hands when deciding to use this form of transportation.

Tanzania Trains Tazara Railways Tickets and Info to Zambia and Mbeya

TAZARA covers a distance of 1,860km between Dar es Salaam and New Kapiri Mposhi stations, negotiating its way through many amazing topographic features and monuments, including game parks, thick jungles, mountains and steep valleys.

From what I hear quite a few construction workers including the Chinese got eaten by lions during construction.

From a low altitude of 14.06m above sea level at Kurasini Station, the line rises steeply to 500m at Mlimba and further up to a peak of 1789.43m at Uyole Station (the highest point of TAZARA) in Mbeya before cascading down to 1660m above sea level at Mwenzo (the highest point in Zambia) and runs at a relatively steady level up to New Kapiri-Mposhi where it settles at 1274.63m above sea level.

Tanzania Train Passenger Services
Mandated to provide the most efficient, effective and reliable mode of transport in the two partner states, TAZARA runs three types of passenger trains, i.e. Express, Ordinary and Special Trains.

Apart from conveying people, passenger trains also transport parcels and luggage using the parcel vans attached to the passenger trains.

Each parcel van can carry up to 15.7 metric tons of parcels and, depending on the demand, one or more vans can be attached to the train at a time.

Attached to each train are dining cars in which professional caterers serve international cuisines at very reasonable prices.

Tanzania Trains Tazara Railways Tickets and Info to Zambia and Mbeya

Tanzania Train Express Trains
TAZARA operates one pair of cross-border express passenger trains every Tuesday between Dar es Salaam in Tanzania and New Kapiri-Mposhi in Zambia, and vice-versa.

The express trains are known as the Kilimanjaro Express and Mukuba Express. It takes approximately 46 hours to travel between Dar es Salaam and New Kapiri Mposhi.

Passengers have the rare treat of viewing a variety of game along the way.

When traversing the mountainsides, passing though the tunnels, crossing rivers and gorges, passengers have a chance to appreciate the awesome and inspirational engineering works of the Chinese, who constructed the railway between 1970 and 1975. Express trains are recommended for international travelers.

Tanzania Train Ordinary Trains
A pair of Ordinary Passenger Trains, on the other hand, runs in each direction every Friday.

The ordinary trains stop at every serviceable railway station in the respective regions of Tanzania and Zambia.

Tanzania Train Commuter Trains
On 29th October 2012, TAZARA introduced Commuter Train Services in Tanzania’s port city of Dar es Salaam, covering a distance of 30km from Dar es Salaam main station to Mwakanga, on the outskirts of the city.

The Commuter Train Service was introduced at the request of the Tanzanian government, keen to ease the transport challenges in the city, especially during peak hours.

The government financed the initial costs of refurbishing the dilapidated coaches and locomotives to put them back into service having been discarded for years.

The Commuter Trains utilize TAZARA’s main track, transporting some 9,000 passengers every day, except weekends and public holidays when the service is not available.

TAZARA’s passenger train services are on very high demand.

TAZARA also happens to have very limited equipment available at the moment and, therefore, the number of trains currently in service is also limited.

Those factors imply that the passenger trains are usually fully booked, sometimes as much as two weeks before the travel date.

Therefore, it is important that you plan your journey with TAZARA long before your travel date.

Give it at least a month of advance planning. Book your seat or sleeping berth at least two weeks in advance.

Tanzania Trains Tazara Railways Tickets and Info to Zambia and Mbeya

Tanzania Trains Tazara Railways Tickets and Info to Zambia and Mbeya

Remember that you will need to purchase your ticket either a few days before the journey or on the actual day of travel.

Therefore, you need to choose the most convenient booking office, from where you will also buy your ticket.

If you have not bought your ticket in advance, but have made an advance booking, you need to arrive at the station earlier, say an hour or two before the Expected Departure Time (EDT).

In terms of getting to the station where you intend to board from, it is advisable that you ensure that you get on the earliest bus that would deliver you to that station at least two hours before the indicated EDT.

Tanzania Trains Tazara Railways Tickets and Info to Zambia and Mbeya

Tanzania Trains Tazara Railways Tickets and Info to Zambia and Mbeya

 

Our experience is that many passengers make mistakes by using public buses that depart late or delay along the way and end up reaching the boarding station too late and find the train has already left.

 

You have no control over public transport; neither does TAZARA have that control.

 

Therefore, play it safe. Look for the earliest and fastest means of transportation to get you to the boarding station.

Book your seat or sleeping berth at least two weeks in advance.

Tanzania Trains Tazara Railways Tickets and Info to Zambia and Mbeya

Tanzania Trains Tazara Railways Tickets and Info to Zambia and Mbeya

You booked in advance and acquired your ticket in good time. Now you are on Board.

Rest assured that travelling by train between Tanzania and Zambia is comparatively the safest mode of transport you can ever come across.

It is also the most interesting and relaxing mode of transport. Read books and relax. Make friends and chat. Walk around and stretch your legs. Enjoy refreshments and watch movies.

Dine and wine if you like. Enjoy the scenery, watch the wildlife and occasionally take a stroll and feel the freshness of Africa when the train stops. It is all part of the package.

Tanzania Trains Tazara Railways Tickets and Info to Zambia and Mbeya

Tanzania Trains Tazara Railways Tickets and Info to Zambia and Mbeya

However, whereas TAZARA ensures the highest safety standards in all train operations, passengers on board are urged to complement these efforts by abiding to the following precautions: No doors must be opened whilst the train is in motion.

Passengers must wait until the train has come to a complete stop before opening the exit doors.

Similarly, passengers must not jump onto or disembark from the train whilst it is still in motion. Excessive drinking of alcohol on the train is dangerous. Drunkenness impairs judgment and affects movements, which is not safe on the train.

Sticking out the head or limbs through windows could be dangerous due to jerking and abrupt stoppages of trains. It is not advisable to drink piped water.

Whilst every care is taken to fill the tanks on the train with clean water, its cleanliness cannot be guaranteed. It is therefore advisable that tap water is only used for washing and not drinking. Passengers are advised to drink bottled mineral water which is available for sale on the trains at all times.

Do not leave your compartment open and luggage unattended to at any time. Play it safe. Have the compartment locked by the train attendants whenever you leave your compartment.
