Now that I am done, here are some pictures I have taken afterward. It was kind of hard to look through all the material and find the best scenery, but I tried to at least incorporate a few of the places I actively recall:

  1. After such a long flight, I simply have to include a picture of the very first takeoff at roughly 1105Z on Friday:


  1. First, I flew to Harare (FVRG) as my first flight, and stumbled over quite some beautiful spots:


  1. After continuing on to Lusaka as a part of the triangle route, I then flew back from Lusaka (FLKK) to Dar Es Salaam (HTDA) and once again found some cool spots:



  1. Next up was my flight to Moroni (FMCH), where I got accompanied by @Robin3 and @ILOVE7879-2.0. As we were crossing over Mafia Island, I took a cool picture:


  1. After basically the same flight but in reverse to fly back to Dar Es Salaam (HTDA), I then started my first domestic Tanzanian flight to Mwanza (HTMW), which marked the beginning of a series of flights away from ATโ€™s HUB Dar Es Salaam (HTDA):

This flight was at roughly 4 am in the morning for me, and it represented the time of my biggest struggle to carry on because my eyes barely stayed open.


  1. Then I flew to Kilimanjaro Airport (HTKJ) which was my base for my flights to and from Entebbe (HUEN), Uganda. The flight from Kilimanjaro (HTKJ) to Uganda (HUEN) brought me the closest to giving up because my app crashed twice on the ground when preparing my flight, but I decided to continue anyway:


Yeah, thatโ€™s it. I canโ€™t show a picture of every flight, but those were some pictures I at least found quite beautiful, and I would recommend everybody to discover Africa where youโ€™ll find the best mixture of different landscapes as close together as it gets. In total, my adventure took me 25 hours.

I would recommend flying from Kilimanjaro to Zanzibar. The area around HTKJ is a mix of very dry plains and cool mountain ranges emerging from it all over the place, resulting in very cool scenery. The flight to Zanzibar is pretty short (40 Minutes to 1 Hour) but takes you over the east coast of Tanzania and finally to the beautiful island of Zanzibar.
Another worthy mention is Moroni. While the flight there is pretty boring because you only fly over water, the island and approach that is curved after the bays of the island, are absolutely stunning!
But, every flight is beautiful so you wonโ€™t regret taking any of these!

too bad I couldnยดt join you on this oneโ€ฆ

It is! It has the perfect balance of floatiness but settling to the ground, at least if you use the speeds from Tylerโ€™s tutorial! Itโ€™s great!
