Zanzibar Island Restaurant, Pictures of Zanzibar Island & 9 Other East African Photos

I was chatting with my cousin a couple of days ago when she asked me, “You are not tired of water yet? Don’t you like live by the ocean?”, after I had told her just how much I enjoy the view of Lake Victoria from this lovely B & B in Kampala. I understood where she was coming from—she’s not the first person to ask me this—but the truth is: no, I don’t tire of water. As I responded to her then, “Lakes are so different from the ocean. Oceans differ from each other”. What is constant about most bodies … Continue reading Zanzibar Island Restaurant, Pictures of Zanzibar Island & 9 Other East African Photos

Ras Kutani, Kigamboni, Tanzania & 39 Other “Summer” Photos Taken in Tanzania

Summer in the Northern Hemisphere coincides with peak travel season in Tanzania. This “summer”—I put that in quotes because it wasn’t actually summer in Tanzania but rather some of our cooler months—I did my fair share of traveling and exploration because my brother was visiting from the U.S., and I wanted to show him all the best that the country had to offer. We discovered some beautiful places in Dar es Salaam where I live—you will see many pictures of the Protea Hotel Dar es Salaam Amani Beach in this post—but we also took a 3-week road trip that took … Continue reading Ras Kutani, Kigamboni, Tanzania & 39 Other “Summer” Photos Taken in Tanzania

Lushoto, Tanga, Tanzania

Have you ever been to Lushoto, Tanzania? Do you know where Lushoto is? Perhaps let me begin this post by telling you more about that. Lushoto is the name of both a town and a district, located in Tanzania’s northernmost coastal region, Tanga. Although the region of Tanga borders the Indian Ocean, Lushoto lies further inland, nestled in the scenic Usambara Mountains (see the map below). In my last Instagram recap post, I told you how I ended up in Lushoto. My mother was turning 71, and since she’d been saying for a while that she was yearning to travel, I suggested we do just that for her … Continue reading Lushoto, Tanga, Tanzania
