I spent 52 days with my backpack in East Africa and it was an amazing journey! Snorkeling in a National Park, using strange vehicles to get from one place to another, discussing politics with locals on the beach and learning about the tech scene in coworking spaces. I coloured postcards with a bunch of rasta men and learned how guides find lions on a Safari… Tanzania and Kenya offer great places for people who are looking for new experiences!
It was not very easy for me to choose,
but here are my TOP 10 places in East Africa:
Nafasi Art Space
Dar El Salam, Tanzania [Deutscher Artikel]
I never would have guessed that Dar el Salam – the city without postcards, because there is nothing to picture there – has such an amazing art space with dancers, painters, weavers etc.
A Village near Soni
Usambara Mountains, Tanzania [Deutscher Artikel]
Invited by a very nice volunteer I spent two days in a remote village, helped cooking over the open fire and learned a lot about rural Tanzania. The communication was quite difficult, but my host family was so kind, that this barrier was removed very quickly.
