How to Get from Tanzania to Burundi and from Burundi to Rwanda: visas, transport, and funny experiences

Русская версия

Mwanza and the Museum of the Sukuma Tribe (Tanzania)

Русская версия   Mwanza is a city situated on the shores of Victoria lake; its name is translated from the Sukuma language as “lake”. Mwanza is one of the largest cities of Tanzania, famous for its rocky landscape, fish, and multiple tribes living together in peace.

Children in Africa

Русская версия   Apart from the standard safari-trip in East Africa, there is one more “entertainment” the locals will try to attract you with – financial aid to children. This happens on several levels: from children following you and yelling “Give me your dollar” to grown-ups professionally asking for money to fund children. At the same time, there are still decent funds which supply themselves independently.

Singida (Tanzania)

Русская версия   Although Singida is just a stonethrow from the main Tanzanian tourist destination – Arusha (most of the safaris depart from it), the travelers rarely come here, although it can also boast of a couple of attractions.

Balangida, Tanzanian Salted Lake

Русская версия   The next day after visiting Barbaig tribe, our guide Thomas was busy with other tourists, while we really wanted to get to Balangida lake, not too easy to reach on your own.

Barbaig Tribe in Tanzania

Русская версия  Counting almost 50 millions people, Tanzania has about 120 tribes. According to many locals, all of them live in peace due to the politics of the father of Tanzanian nation Julius Nyerere. In Katesh, we visited Barbaig, a seminomad pastoralist tribe of approximately 200000 people. Barbaigs still preserve rather traditional way of life with occasional and rather rare signs of modernity like cellphones or schools. Visiting Barbaig for us was a sort of compromise between uristified Masais and some unknown and hard-to-reach tribe.
