Please accept Kibo

Personally I wouldn't. Kibo is one of the three peaks of Kilimanjaro, i.e. not the actual mountain.

I could finish it at first attempt, so I guess it's quite easy. I appreciate some other country quizzes rather then the usual popular ones!

How odd that more people got Lake Malawi than Lake Tanganyika, which the country used to be named after!
Level 63
Apr 29, 2019
Because another answer is the country malawi
Level 62

Because people type Malawi for bordering countries and it automatically fills in Lake Malawi too

funny how you don't see lake Nyasa anymore, everyone calls it Malawi now.
Level 38

Lake Nyasa was a redundant name, since "Nyasa" means "Lake". Why call it Lake Lake?

I enjoyed this. Totally forgot about the Maasai. Also, funny that the sultan of Oman once lived on Zanzibar.
Level 64

The sultan of Oman lives in Zanzibar now. That's just, where he lives.

About the description, the standard plural is lingua francas. Linguae francae would be the Latin plural, not linguae franca.

Both versions are acceptable. The Latin version feels sexier to me.

Managed to get everything after many guesses on the Zanzibar language and economic sector.
Level 78
Jul 25, 2020
For economic sector I knew it was agriculture but I was getting too detailed, trying to think of which crop.

Hakuna Matata! What a wonderful phrase...
Level 59

I typed Kilimanjaro several times and assumed it was something else. I need to learn how to spell it since whatever I typed wasn't accepted.

I would question a border with the Democratic Republic of Congo. There is no land border. Lake Tanganyika lies between the two.
