I’m planning a trip to Tanzania with my girlfriend for 14 days end of July/early August. I’d really appreciate if anyone has any thoughts about this (pretty rough) itinerary I’m beginning to work out. We’re particularly interested in suggestions about travel; nice/interesting places to stay (mid-range budget); and things to do...we’re not too bothered about safaris. Any comments or possible snags in our plan I’d be interested to hear about...
The other thing I was wondering about travel is whether with flights and buses I can book these when I arrive, or should this be sorted in advance?
Day 1-3: Dar to Zanzibar, stay in Stone Town two nights
Day 3-5: Pongwe Beach Hotel for two nights
Day 5: Travel to Udzungwa Mountains via Dar (ferry+bus)
Day 6-8: Hike in Udzungwa Mountains (any suggestions where to stay or which operators?)
Day 9: Travel to Mafia Island via flight from Dar
Day 10 – 12: Stay on Mafia Island
Day 13: Back to Dar for flight home the next day.
Any help most welcome. Also we’re saving up but we’re not millionaires!!
