Reviewed January 9, 2012

Obviously the museum is not up to London standards but I found it very interesting and came away feeling I knew a little more about the history of Tanzania

“Lots of huts”
Reviewed January 8, 2012

Quite informative if you are researching dwellings in central Africa but I found it all rather tedious. Exhibits could be made more interesting and perhaps livened up a little as this is little more than a collection of different hut types in a central park

“Tanzania Heaven”
Reviewed December 24, 2011

You can get into the skin of Tanzania, its people and its villages. Beautiful and serene.
The tribal dance and music shows are a must watch, they are fantastic and mesmerizing. You cant find these anywhere else in the world.
We attended a wedding here, it felt like we were transported to a wedding function in the heart of Africa. So beautiful.

Make sure you get a guide to explain all the detail facts about the tribes. Make sure you have lunch there as it was beautiful And great value
