Hi can anyone help me on this? I worked in Arusha last year and am thinking about the possibility of returning at the end of this year. I wondered about maybe riding there from Nairobi by motorbike and perhaps touring around Tanzania? I would only have about 5 weeks sadly.

I know about the roads and traffic! I did not see many bikes when I was there. Any ideas on getting hold of a bike either in Kenya or Tanzania.

Any other advice on motorbike travel in Tanzania also gratefully recieved.

Many thanks

Sounds like quite an adventure! There are motorbikes available here in TZ. I recommend that you consider how rough the roads can be when you choose the bike. The biggest concern that I would have is reports of motorbike hijackings. Since you have spent some time in Arusha, you may have enough of a sense of what you need to do to stay as safe as possible. I hope that you start a travel blog. Best wishes, safari njema.
