For animal and nature lovers, Tanzania was a no-brainer: the mainland boasts numerous national parks with diverse and fascinating landscapes and rich fauna, while the Tanzanian islands in the Indian Ocean are a relaxing retreat with their numerous pearl-white sandy beaches. We begin our adventure in the town of Arusha or else where. Anyone who has always wanted to climb Kilimanjaro has surely heard about it, as this is where travelers stop before starting their climb. One of the most memorable moments was our visit to the local food market where you can buy avocados, mangoes, pineapples and tons of fresh and juicy fruits and vegetables only to find that they taste a thousand times better in Tanzania than in the best supermarkets nearby of the House.

Another thing that struck me about the area was the intensity, the abundance of colors all around: lush vegetation of plants and flowers I’d never seen before, a bright purple jacaranda tree, and to top it all off, the snow-capped peak of Kilimanjaro mountain. as a background. There are many opportunities for easy and physically demanding hikes in the area. We decide to take a short walk to Marangu Falls, located at the foot of Kilimanjaro National Park. The views were impressive, both from the top of the hill overlooking the waterfall and from the valley below. The rippling water and the pleasant temperatures made the stay very pleasant.
