‘Kigoma is where Tanzania ends’
Kigoma is a small city in a remote region in northwestern Tanzania. According to this article, Kigoma is where Tanzania ends. Geographically, the city is located on the edge of the country at the end of the national railway line. It’s somehow fitting, then, that Kigoma is also my last stop in Tanzania before I cross the border into Rwanda.
Kigoma is red earth and palm trees and emerald lake water. I’ve spent the past five days lounging on red beaches, hanging out with zebras, swimming in Lake Taganyika, getting caught in rainstorms, and exploring muddy roads with friends from Dar.
