Hakuna Matata is real.
You know The Lion King? I know you know The Lion King. It’s pretty tough not to know the song Hakuna Matata, that Timon and Pumbaa sing to young Simba. While the opening song “The Circle of Life” may not be Swahili, (it’s Zulu), Hakuna Matata is a real saying in Swahili! Yes, “Hakuna Matata” in Swahili does indeed mean “no worries.” So, when the days get hard Zanbari’s will be sure to let you know that it will be alright in the end. However, most Tanzanians will use “Hamna shida” outside of the tourist hotspots themselves.
There’s an old railway station in Moshi that has been abandoned for decades. Moshi‘s creative locals decided to turn the ticket booth into a bar where you can come, grab a chair amid the rails, and stare at Mount Kili on a clear afternoon.
The ancient city—declared a UNESCO cultural heritage site in 2000—is charming, but it’s basically a maze. The act of receiving directions through the town’s winding alleys usually involves a series of confusing hand gestures and head nods, and will probably not get you where you want to go any faster. There are street names, sort of, but no one really uses them. The bright side is that Stone Town is small and safe, and not knowing where you’re going is part of the experience. Locals are helpful, so you can ask for directions as many times as you want, but sometimes it’s best to let yourself get lost.
