The Tanzania guide

Latest articles

Just wish to tell our friends who are coming to Tanzania for a visit or stay to be aware of the public transport problems especially in two areas of railway and city public buses.

If you are moving to Arusha you need to know about the Arusha Mailing. It is how everyone finds anything. Go to Meat King- the local meat place where everyone buys meat. It is downtown and anyone will know where it is if you ask around. You go in there and pay 10,000 shilling (less than 10 dollars) and they will post what ever you are looking for on the mailing. House, furniture, work, etc. Make sure you are add your contanct info and you most likely get a resonse pretty quick. There are LOTS of expats living in Arusha.

A Zebra's Dream

4 years ago

The Zebra is a chocolate-addicted, blogloving, sometimes neurotic, belgian former working mum of two sweet little daughters! On the 13th of January 2014 we said our goodbyes in Brussels Airport and 14 hours later we landed in Dar Es Salaam: our new home for the coming three years. What should I expect of life in Tanzania? Will we like it? How will our kids do? One thing is sure, it will be an adventures experience that we won?t forget soon!
