To organize the threads in this Special Interest Group much better, I have decided to spilt the sharing of experiences of various traveling experiences into various continents.

So, this thread is specifically for interesting places that you have known or been in Africa

Humjambo!!! Haha, I'm finally posting a reply in this thread. And I'm the first one too!!! I've been wanting to do that for a long time.

Anyways, strikingstar is delighted to announce that he has already been in Tanzania for 1 week and is gonna be spending another 9 delightful weeks here.


This is the first picture I took of Tanzania (taken from the plane just before arriving at JRO).

I'm hoping to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro while I'm here but I'm not sure if I'll have the time. Anyways, I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Will be going on a safari (which means trip in Swahili) in the Ngorongoro Crater this week and hopefully another safari at the Serengeti in another few weeks. (I really hope to catch the river crossing during the Great Migration).

Will also be going to Zanzibar next week.


Picture of the outside. Taken from inside Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Met a guy from Sarawak while waiting for my connection to Arusha. He was going to Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, for logging business.



Mt. Meru. Taken while walking from MS-TCDC (Danish training center where I'm studying) to Usa Plaza at Usa River, a small little village. Most days, there're too many clouds to be able to see the peak.

Tutaonana baadaye wote!!!

Unaniongea poa? Asante sana.

I'm trying to upload as many pictures as possible each time but the internet connection is really weak most of the time.



Ben getting swarmed. Those kids are really poor. Tattered oversized clothes. Worn mismatched shoes.




Grinding maize.




Standing outside a hut.




Tanzanian gasing.

Just uploading this one picture took an inordinate amount of time.



Giraffes (aka twiga in Kiswahili) on the way to the Ngorongoro Crater.

Ngorongoro Crater. Stunningly beautiful. The photo doesn't do it justice.



Town we stayed at the night before going to Ngorongoro.



Walking around.



At Zanzibar airport.



Seafood dinner somewhere near the 'Gardens' at the UNESCO World Heritage site of Stone Town, Zanzibar (used to be a major hub for slave trading).
