The Land of Kilimanjaro, Serengeti, and Zanzibar
Tanzania covers 937,062 sq. km, making it the largest country in East Africa. Just south of the equator, it borders Kenya and Uganda to the north; the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Burundi to the west; and Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique to the south.
Through the interior runs the Great Rift Valley, the vast fault—line down the spine of Africa that, in Tanzania, has created many fascinating topographical features including the Ngorongoro Crater and Lake Tanganyika and Soda Lakes such as Lake Manyara.
I believe there is no sickness of the heart too great it cannot be cured by a dose of Africa [Tanzania]. Families must go there to learn why they belong together on this earth, adolescents to discover humility, lovers to plumb old but untried wells of passion, honeymooners to seal marriages with a shared sense of bafflement, those shopworn with life to find a tonic for futility, the aged to recognize asymmetry to twilight. I know this all sounds a bit much, but if I have ever seen magic, it has been in Africa [Tanzania].
John Heminway wrote in his book—African Journey. Especially, we might add, in Tanzania.
