Let me start with a piece of advice: never travel to Tanzania without a Bird Guide Book. We did and we regretted it. Luckily our guide Peter had a 3 inch thick bird guide with him that showed us every possible species that ever lived or flew over Tanzania. I’m not much of a bird watcher myself, but I can tell you, spotting all these beautiful and colorful birds will turn you into one on the spot. My favorite: the bright colored Bee Eater and the Grey-Backed Shrike. But even more impressing is spotting a Vulture, gazing the fields in search for some leftover meat. Brrrrr.
