Tanzania, Africa as a Tourist – Episode 51

categories: africa travel

The Amateur Traveler goes to Tanzania. This first of two episodes on Tanzania looks at Tanzania as a tourist and focuses on three national parks: Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, and Tarangire.

Maasai Boma

It also focuses on the Masai people. The traditional Boma of the Maasai people in Tanzania is a series of huts made from sticks, mud and cow dung surrounding an inner wooden corral and surrounded outside by an outer palisade. I love the people in this photo. The shy woman and the child in the shadow of the door of the hut.

This episode also has soundseeing clips from my trip.

Hey! This is a really cool site!! Traveling is sooo cool especially if it?s to exotic locations..The coolest part is getting the best bargains on flights around the world… I found this really neat online fare consolidator called Cfares, that I use regularly.. check out the link at :


Tell all ur friends and colleagues in the US. Awesome prices if ur flying anywhere in the world..and it?s really useful, if ur flying from the US to China, South East Asia and Europe?hope this helps!! The Gold membership is free, and the deals are really good.. They have a platinum membership too, but I think that?s paid.. not really sure, but you get much better deals than the gold membership.
