Areas Visited: Moshi, Kilimanjaro, Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro Crater. (2006)

Tanzania is a beautiful country that is ideal for seeing the large (and small) animals on a wild safari. It also boasts Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. Tourism in Tanzania is mostly done through tour operators as it's difficult to enter the many parks independently. Likewise, climbing Kilimanjaro requires booking through a tour operator who arranges guides, porters, tents and food.

The country is very hot and dusty, but not humid.

I recommend visiting Tanzania to go on an animal safari and marvel at seeing Mt. Kilimanjaro in the early morning.
