If you are anything like I used to be, you might think that Mwanza, Tanzania is a small, sleepy, upcountry town—disguised as a city—with few interesting things to do in and around it. After spending a few days in Tanzania’s second largest city, I’ve changed my mind. I now know that Mwanza is a scenic, burgeoning, lakeside city (somewhat deserving of that name), with a selection of things to do in its vicinity. Don’t believe me? Here’s a list of seven things I enjoyed doing during my last trip to Mwanza that you can enjoy too the next time you visit!
As those of you who follow me on Facebook and Twitter might know, I spent the end of last week visiting Northern Tanzania—Mwanza, Mara (including Butiama), the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and Arusha.

Mediterraneo Hotel & Restaurant Kawe Beach, Dar es Salaam Tel: +255-22-2618359 Website: www.mediterraneotanzania.com It seems to me as though there might be a restaurant called Mediterraneo in each of East Africa’s largest commercial cities. In Nairobi, there are the three wonderful Mediterraneos (in Westlands, at The Junction, and in Gigiri). In Dar es Salaam, there is the beautiful Mediterraneo in Kawe, which will be the subject of today’s post. In Kampala, there is the Mediterraneo in Kololo.
