Birds and bacon

A travel blog entry by rosandjohn


The bathroom facilities were rather limited on board M/S Victoria so we abandoned thoughts of finding a shower and instead concentrated on finding some tea. The saloon and dining room were deserted but after finding a steward and asking for some and getting turned down, because we were approaching Mwanza, a helpful passenger persuaded him to take …

A "Post-Africa" Entry

A travel blog entry by girlmack


This is, arguably, my most grammatically incorrect title to-date. Ah well, I sure hope none of you grammar nazis stop reading just because I can't think of a better way to put it. (And don't think that I haven't sat here for ten minutes thinking of different options. "An Entry, Post-Africa"? "An Post-African Entry" just doesn't sound right. Bah.) …

Day 20-22: Lake Victoria

Day 20-22: Lake Victoria

Checkpoint Frances: we got stopped by some kind of checkpoint – Frances wanted to see our insurance papers which were in the blue suitcase… no problem, we opened the back and got it. We got told, that here in Tanzania you have to keep them in the front, in case of a police checkpoint close to the driver …

Will go back

A travel blog entry by hattingh


I have never been on the edge of a big lake like lake Victoria. It is like standing on the beach next to an ocean!. Small waves breaking, huge boates going up and down, amazing!
Did some shopping, saw some MIG's at the airport (but were too scared to take the camera out!), and waited for our lift! Can't remember the name of the hotel where we …

The African Queen

A travel blog entry by solarmoxie


A luxurious layover on the way from TZ to Kenya, I stayed on the African Queen (really the boat that the African Queen was chasing in the movie, but whatever) in the cute town of Mwanza, on Lake Vic in TZ. A sweet resort that I will stay at a day longer next time, with a pool & 2 very nice restaurants. The food was amazing, & I scored the …

    Well at least not the real one. We had a great time here. The pool was inviting as you cannot swim in the lake. There are beautiful gardens to relax in. The staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed in the Katherine Hepburn Suite. Same price as the other rooms so we took this one and glad we did. It is a beautiful room on the boat with its own balcony. Very spacious and great views of the lake. I would stay there again.
