The Mbozi meteorite is an amazing piece fallen from Heaven. Weight is 12 tons of mostly iron & copper and it is the 8th biggest recorded on earth. Actually the size is not as spectacular as you may expect, but then it comes from space and just lying there in the Tanzanian countryside! Definitely worth a visit - especially if you also usually enjoying countryside and its people - , but don't expect any exploited tourist attraction, it is just the meteorite, and - sometimes there might be a caretaker around to charge a small fee in return of his story.
