Save Place
Stone Town, Zanzibar, Tanzania
As easy as it would be to spend an entire trip to Zanzibar lazing around on soft-sand beaches, it’s well worth skipping an hour or two of sunbathing to see Stone Town, the ancient district of Zanzibar. With its narrow cobblestoned streets,...
Save Place
Tharia St, Zanzibar, Tanzania
My guide leads me underground into a dark, damp, stone-walled holding cell which, I am told, was reserved for women and children only. The atmosphere is oppressive and stifling and my mind wanders to imagine what these poor souls must have felt,...
Save Place
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
Arriving in the thriving hub of Southern Tanzania is a far cry from the remote savannahs of the national parks, forested mountains, and wild rain forests that sprawl across Tanzania’s interior. It is a perfect time to sample some of the excellent,...

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
An atmosphere thick and loud with work and culture...the Dar Fish Market strongly assaults every sense.

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
In the heart of Dar es Salaam, the Mwenge Woodcarvers Market is filled with artisans hard at work creating beautiful and unique items. Wooden masks are particularly popular, but you’ll also find treasures in craft shops selling a whole range...

Kilawani, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
A great feat of engineering from the colonial era, the Tazara Railway leaves Dar Es Salaam and rattles its once-grand carriages through the vast uninhabited Selous Game Reserve, treating its passengers to spotting giraffe, antelope, elephants, and...

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
I volunteered with this children's organization for 5 weeks, and it was an amazingly fun and enlightening adventure. If you're looking for part-time volunteering (which I did as I was living across the city), or if you want to do it full-time,...
Save Place
Ursino St, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, is not Ethiopia, I get that. But this Ethiopian restaurant, Addis in Dar, is a great location to catch some excellent authentic Ethiopian grub. And everything is pre-translated, so you won't be ordering in the dark. So...

Tanzania
One of my favorite writers, Peter Matthiessen, wrote a book called At Play in the Fields of the Lord. I thought of that title when I visited this 300-square-mile area of Serengeti plains during the January and February green season: it’s an...

Tanzania
Ngorongoro Crater is one of the world's greatest natural spectacles, its magical setting and abundant wildlife never failing to enthrall you. However the crater is just a small part of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area which offers a whole range of...

Tanzania
Baboons around every turn, zebras and wildebeests grazing on the savannah, lions lounging in trees above your head, and elephants strolling around. This is the animal kingdom at its best.
