Weekly Photo Challenge: Minimalist (Tanzania)

Tanzania is a country overflowing with nature’s bounty. Whether it’s viewing zebra through a sea of grass in the Serengeti, scaling Kilimanjaro’s lofty peaks, or floating in Zanzibar’s sublime waters, I dare you not to be moved.

The white sail of this traditional dhoni, in stark contrast to the unreal intensity of the Indian ocean, presents a dazzling minimalist vista.

    • Hi Astha, Zanzibar had the most beautiful water I’ve seen so far. I spent all day just staring at all the different shades of blue and green. It was unreal. Crossing my fingers that you make it there one day! 🙂

    • Justine, I literally spent every day just staring at the water. It had so many different shades of blue and green, it was totally mesmerizing! And the Serengeti is really like no place else on earth. I felt a serenity there that I can’t explain. You def have to go someday! 😀

  6. After seeing Tanzania on The Amazing Race 20, I have been dreaming (I think I’ll make a life goal) of going there. It really touched my soul even just seeing it from an iPad screen. 🙂 Would die to see that display of vast nature.

    • It was truly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. I don’t there’s anywhere on earth quite like the Serengeti…I really felt a part of the cycle of nature there in a way I haven’t anywhere else in the world. I hope you make it there one day in your life. It should not be missed!! 😀
