Look what you answered the most (a, b, c or d) and go to the results below.

Mostly a):
Your only goal seems to be to get to the next place where they sell beer. You happen to be one of those mid-twenty British that do an overland beer-safari?

Mostly b):
You are the classical safari tourist, visiting the main attractions. You love the wildlife and the experience from your 4x4 and lodges. You don't want to mingle with the locals too much. You're here for the nature!

Mostly c):
Have you actually ever been to Tanzania? It's fine. Just watch tv and read a blog.

Mostly d):
You are the budget backpacker. You've seen all of Tanzania but the parks. They are too expensive. You speak a bit of KiSwahili by now and hang out with locals at local places. Not sure whether that is because you are so interested in Tanzanian people or because it's the cheapest way to get around. Don't bargain everything down to the bare bottom. The idea of tourism is to bring some money to the country and local economies.
