they also need to exploit their agricultural land.....i blame their political system but atleast Mrisho Kikwete seems to be going the right direction.

Tanzania is very beautiful and has so much potential when it comes to tourism. But it will take much more than just the beauty for it to be a tourist hotspot. Good infrastructure, marketing and tourism investments are just some of the areas they need to work on.

That will not be the case for long, soon all East African countries will be marketed as one destination. That includes things like visas where one will need only one to visit Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi.

It would be nice to land in Nairobi in the morning, have lunch under Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and take a trip to the source of the nile in Uganda the next day.:)

Its very simple, I can couple up both Kenya and Tanzania in the same trip, fly into Nairobi and overland by bus towards DES
