Wild and Vibrant – East Africa
“Africa has her mysteries and even a wise man cannot understand them. But a wise man respects them.” - Miriam Makeba (South African singer and civil rights activist)
December also known as the Party Month, Holiday Month etc, everyone is full of energy and enthusiasm and so was I. This year I wanted to celebrate My new Year at least not in my city somewhere else but was not sure and suddenly one day I get a call from my sister... sometime back she has moved to Tanzania, and my happiness knew no bounds... next day I started working on my itinerary for Tanzania as I was suppose to leave in a week. I always wanted to go to Africa and was super excited at the thought of spending my next 15 days in the "mysterious continent" and to tick mark one more destination out of my Bucket list- East Africa!!
Tanzania is one of those countries where Visa is on Arrival for Indians so it wasn’t a tension to get a visa before. Took off at 11:30Am from Chatrapati Shivaji terminal, Mumbai, after a long 16 hours flight (Including a layover of 8 Hours in Ethiopia), tired and groggy I landed in Dar Es Salaam, where my sister stays.
Ethiopian airlines is one of the best and most economic choice to travel to Tanzania, and the best part is if you have a layover of more than 7-8 hours they check you in in a hotel.
