Tanzanians speak less English than Kenya the standard language for instruction and government is Kiswahili. But Tanzania is more laid back and easy going.

Laid back in that life is very slow paced. Proper African timers. They are very courteous people.

For the best destinations, Kenya definitely beats Tanzania with greater diversity, being a higher earner of tourism revenue. There was talk of a joint Kenya - Uganda - Rwanda tourism visa some time ago. I don't know if it is already in force.

I am not very conversant with Tanzania, and it's destinations. But there are a couple of similarities.

You can also consider Rwanda. It is a lovely country to visit. Forget about d movie "Sometimes In April" I can assure you gonna enjoy every bit of that country. I have been there and i have always refer that country to all my friends. Crime rate is extremely low, infact i have never heard of any robbery case since i hv bn visiting that country. Its got lots of tourist sites and life there is very cheap. You can get a visa on arrival for $30, good hotel in a citty center at $40 per night or less.

I will recommend you apply for EAST AFRICAN TOURIST VISA (It covers Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda). It cost just 100USD and easy to obtain. Rwanda is a lovely and clean country. Less crime, people are easy to approach, and they have lovely food with a touch of French cuisines.

In my last vacation which am planning to repeat so soon. I visited Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania and Congo. Kenya is more developed when compared to others, but I enjoyed Rwanda most. My journey started from Turkey direct to Kenya via emirate, spent 4 days in Kenya, flew to Uganda via Kenya Airway cost 90USD. Spent 11 days in Uganda (here, they love goat meat like anything and fufu)..lodged at Munyonyo Speke Resort (its amazing place). Then flew to Rwanda via Rwanda Air cost 105USD just around 50 mins. The airport is super clean and small. The immigration at Kigali Airport is over friendly and lots of Tourist from France and other European countries. Rented a clean 3-star hotel for 50USD per night at Kigali city centre, went for gorilla trekking and visited lots of tourist places.....then rent a car to Lake Kivu...from Lake Kivu entered cheap boat/ship to Congo.

In all, I spent 30 days exploring Rwanda and 10 days in Tanzania.

You can visit the embassy page of the concerned country the procedure to apply is there, can be applied online and delivered on arrival. I got mine on arrival. With Eastern African visa you can enter all those which saves you money. If you choose to enter them individually, the cheapest is Rwanda (30USD) and Uganda is 100usd but the visa looks beautiful grin grin....its cheaper to enjoy Safaris in Tanzania if you fly from Kigali to Arusha in Tanzania.

Actually, my visit to these countries was just a touristic trips. I have not been to Africa for ages so I was looking to enjoy African beauty. My initial plan was to visit Cape Verde, Seychelles and Angola for a total of 30 days. Anyway, I ended visiting 5 of those eastern African. Kenya has a big market for business and lot of Indian live there, Uganda is cheapest based on the few days I spent there but Uganda is very dirty and major shops are also own by Indian.

Rwanda is landlocked region, population is low, not everybody speak English but if you speak French you will enjoy, they have beautiful women, I think they have the tallest people in the world or Africa (Tutsi tribes), the neatest but more expensive to live compared with Uganda and Tanzania ...they have more Chinese compared to Indian. There are few Nigerian in Rwanda. One can open a business and get the documents within 2-3 days in Rwanda, I did that as I now buy coffee from there to supply to coffee outlets here.

In Tanzania, I spend most of my days in hotel, beach, mountain climbing and viewing some beautiful women with clean natural color (not bleaching). I wish I can upload some of these pics here...

I will be visiting these places shortly again. But left for me I will choose to live in Rwanda compared to those cos of safety, IT hubs, and ease of starting a business. However, as I mentioned earlier my trips are touristic in nature and cannot be used as a YES or NO....for you to relocate to any country, It will be nice if you visit and spend 3-6 months then you can decide if its right place or not. The visa are easy and can be obtained.

But please anywhere you go, be honest, dont bring Nigeria name down and dont bring shame to yourself and Nigeria.

Best wishes!

About visa and business ...you will find valuable information on each country embassy website. Visit the embassy websites and you can easily email the embassy as well for steps and procedure to apply for visa.

You can also visit the embassy in person to ask information.

About which women is more beautiful....you will need to also find out when you visit these countries ....beauty is in the eyes of beholder...

Best wishes in your trip!
