    Hi! i just came across your informative post after hours of searching for useful info about Tanzania. I’d like to buy tickets for my wife’s birthday, as she can’t stop talking and dreaming about seeing Tanzania’s wildlife. She gotta witness it firsthand, I guess. After all these endless stories, me too. So I started planning our trip and first of all i started to scour the web in search of special offers, tickets, cheap accomodation and different kinds of activities including safari. soooooo much information everywhere that it made my head reel. Although I found different sources like popular and packed sites and i’m sitting now with my head blown and don’t know what to do. When it’s better to go to Tanzania IF my wife is afraid of crowds, adores sunbathing (while hiking), loves animals, and is passionate about fresh exotic fruits?
