    Travel from Mwanza to Musoma

    by fasterdog Online Now Mar 30, 2014 at 12:35 PM

    What is the best way to travel from Mwanza to Musoma in Tanzania? I have read that there are buses available in the mornings, but if these aren't available, is it there some sort of private transport which I can hire at a reasonable price?

    Also, does anyone know a good hotel in Musoma with an email address so that I can contact them to book a room?

    Tanzania Safety

    by AixaB Online Now Dec 6, 2013 at 12:19 AM

    Hello, good evening. I'm planning to travel to Tanzania next year (aroun March-April) for an anthropological research. My plan is to go to Mwanza and stay at least 4 weeks. But I have some concerns, especially when it comes to safety (I will be travelling by myself and I'm a 24 year-old woman) and accomodation (since I'll be staying for at least a month I can't afford to stay in a 5 star hotel)... Any tips, comments or suggestions? Thank you very much!

    Best waterpipes / shisha in Mwanza?

    by shisha_duncan Online Now Sep 28, 2012 at 7:28 AM

    With such a setting beside this magnificent lake, surely there must be several places to enjoy a beer and smoke on a "decent" shisha pipe? Any suggestions anyone? Could I buy a pipe somewhere, like at u-turn?
