The most striking thing that hit me while I was visiting Tanzania was the vast landscape. You see layers on the horizon as you look out, and of course you are looking to spot wildlife. Wildebeast and zebra are grazing in the lushness of the Ngorongoro crater, along with hippos in the lake. The sunsets framed with the silhouette of acacia trees is stunning. There is always the presence of Mt Kilimanjaro, even though not always visible. This vast and protected land is home to the grand and unusual wild life that is the pulse of Tanzania.
