Tanzania and Kenya for 6 weeks in July-August

Food Tourist | May 23, 200605:54 PM     8

Going to Kenya on July 9 for one week and then to Tanzania for 5 weeks, returning Aug 21 to Canada. Haven't booked any land tours, safaris, hotels, etc. yet but want a moderate-priced vacation for the first three weeks (one week Kenya - mostly on safari, possibly on the coast, then two weeks Tanzania including Zanzibar and Ngorongoro Crater). The last three weeks will be in Songea (in the south) and possibly Malolo (for community development project with women/children affected by HIV/AIDS). I'm in my mid-30s and I'm not interested in the low-budget backpacking experience; however, I can't afford to splurge on food and hotels at every turn. I will have a travelling companion for the first 3 weeks.

I'd love your opinions on the food and the must-try restaurants, street vendors, and markets in both Kenya and Tanzania. Since I haven't planned the itinerary, the food knowledge could help make some decisions easier! It's getting to the last minute, so any advice would be helpful. I'm an adventurous eater and will try anything once but worry about food safety and illness. Thanks so much!
