MTO WA MBU

Literally, "Mosquito River," this town is located in a fertile growing valley between the town of Arusha and Lake Manyara.  From here, fresh fruits and vegetables are shipped for distribution throughout Tanzania.  This town also served as our camping park for two nights as my safari visited Arusha National Park and Lake Manyara National Park.
