When it comes to getting the best bang for your buck from your precious vacation time, remember that Mbeya is merely just the start; Tanzania is home to a treasure-trove of scenic and cultural delights.
Tanzania is well known for its many traditional villages; these are often evocative testaments to the area's rich past.
The wider region offer some fun outdoor options for travelers who enjoy water. Swimming and scuba diving are just two of the popular choices here. When you hear the call of the wild, follow the lead of active locals and go mountain climbing or hiking.
Trying out the food eaten in a region is often about more than just nutrition. It is a glimpse into places and people's lives. Regular ingredients in this area are ugali (maize porridge) and fish. Sample some popular local dishes, including ugali (cornmeal) and vitumbua (rice cakes). After the main course has settled order the delicious kashata ( made from coconut and ground nuts). Have a glass of refreshing tusker beer. This type of beer is popular amongst the locals. Try a tamamrind nectar, an non-alcoholic Tanzania drink of choice.
Really great vacations are about making friends with new people and seeing the world with fresh eyes. Tanzania is an excellent place for such a break.
