The Visiting Royal Highness, Prince Charles has said he was longing to see Mount Kilimanjaro saying the Mountain was the most iconic images of Tanzania.

Speaking at a State Banquent prepared in his honour by Tanzanian President, Mr Jakaya Kikwete, the Royal Highness said he was hoping that the weather and the sky will be open enough for him and his entourage to see the Mountain.

"During this visit my wife and I will visit not just Dar es salaam, but also Zanzibar and north of your country too, where I can only hope that the wheather will allow us to see Mount Kilimanjaro, the most iconic images of Tanzania" he said.

The Royal Highness, who is in a four-day official tour of Tanzania said, however, that Mount Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar that he was hoping to see were only a fraction of the treasures to be discovered in Tanzania.

He paid tribute to Mwalimu Julius Nyerere, the founding father of Tanzania for his remarkable legacy and dedication to preserve what he called priceless National Parks, Game Reserves and conservation areas, which he said can contribute to the World's precious biodiversity and to the country's economy.

On the bilateral ties between the two countries, the Royal Highness, said "our relationship may be historic one, but it is very modern one too.

He said  Britain has over the years, been the largest donor to Tanzania and that the British current budget will increase further over the coming four years.

On the celebration of the 50th Independence anniversary of Tanganyika, the Royal Highness had an opportunity to reflect on how far we have come.

"I think we would all agree that the fiftieth anniversary is very special" the Royal Highness noted.

The Royal couple entourage is set to visit Arusha today after a whole day tour of Zanzibar yesterday. While in Zanzibar the Royal Highnesses paid a courtesy call on the Zanzibar President, Dr. Ali Mohamed Shein before visiting the narrow streets of the Stone Town, House of Wonder, Bububu Primary School and the Spice Farms.
