Similar but different....and how so?

Jump to last reply

After a few false starts and missed opportunities, I'm happy to report I'm headed back to Africa!!!

I've been to Kenya twice, but this will be my first trip to Tanzania. So I have few questions for all of you seasoned Africa travelers: how similar or different are these countries from each other? How about the flora, fauna and crafts--anything special to be found in Tanzania that cannot be found elsewhere? And any special tips to share?

Also will be spending a few days in Rwanda, but imagine that will be an entirely different experience ---especially since I'll be doing the gorilla trek.

Any and all comments much appreciated!
