Saba Saba

Posted on: July 8, 2009

Yesterday we checked out the International Trade Fair in downtown Dar. It is an annual event held in Tanzania every July 7th – known as “Saba Saba”, which translates to “seven-seven”, referring to the date. Read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saba_Saba_Day

At the fair there are different booths for various groups, organizations, companies and businesses. There is also an animal exhibit, which was my favorite. I’m including some pictures of the animals here.

Lion Sleeps...

The lion sleeps… This was the first time we saw a simba (lion) in Tanzania – very exciting!

These are the biggest tortoises I’ve ever seen! This guy got a ride from one of them – looks like fun :-D
