Where is Tanzania?

I just got back from an amazing trip to Tanzania.   I found before I left, that many people didn't know exactly where Tanzania is.   "So, it's by Australia, right?" (no, that's Tasmania) "Are you sure it's safe to go, with all the civil unrest in the Middle East?" (no, that's Tunisia).  

Here's your chance to brush up on your geography using this map of Africa and of Tanzania, courtesy of Lonely Planet

Our route:
Fly into Kilimanjaro Airport, overnight at the Arusha Coffee Lodge.
Two nights at Gibb's Farm.
Drive through the Ngorongoro Crater, with one night at the Ngorongoro Serena Lodge.
Drive into Serengeti National Park, with two nights at the Serengeti Serena Lodge.
Drive to Lake Manyara, with two nights at Kirurumu Tented Lodge.
Wave a sad goodbye to Tanzania, our awesome guides, and the others who are heading off to Kenya.

Our guides:
In Tanzania, you tend to drive from place to place, so you'll have the same driver/guides for the duration of your trip as you bump along ("African Massage") in your Toyota Land Cruiser.   We worked with Bushdrifters Tanzania, a small, local company owned by Tanzanians, and 5 of their guides for our group of 25.   Patrick, Simon, Jeremiah, Daniel and Alphayo were all fantastic and a lot of fun. 


  1. I had my honeymoon in Kenya and Tanzania. What an amazing place. In fact, the header from my blog is a place we stayed there.

  2. I was wondering if that picture was somewhere in Africa. Thanks for stopping by!
