Just a happy guy who loves travelling, loves Africa and feels that travelling changes you forever.

Iringa

We journey further inland today and make our way up to Iringia situated in the highland tea plantation region. Tonight we eat in a fantastic local Masai restaurant where we are treated to a traditional Tanzanian evening.

Tanzania is a mountainous region in the northeast, where Africa’s tallest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro, is located. The Great Lakes of Lake Victoria (Africa’s biggest lake) and Lake Tanganyika (Africa’s deepest lake, famous for its unique fish species) are to the north and west. Central Tanzania is comprised of a vast plateau complete with savannahs and fruitful land. The eastern shore is hot and humid, with the exotic island of Zanzibar situated just offshore.

Tanzania experiences tropical temperatures and, in the highlands, the climate ranges between 10 and 20 degrees Celsius during the cold and hot seasons respectively.  The remainder of the country has temperatures that seldom drop lower than 20 degrees Celsius. The hottest season takes place between November and February, reaching temperatures of over 30 degrees, whilst the coldest season occurs between May and August, dropping to below 15 degrees.
