Tanzania is one of the richest countries in all of Africa in relation to its remarkable history and culture. Archaeological remains discovered at various sites within the country date back to the earliest traces of human life, existing over three million years ago. Home to numerous islands, and monumental structures, the tropical Archipelego of Zanzibar also boasts thrilling adventure sports. These amazing adventures make Tanzania Destinationsthe number one choice for adventure safaris.
Today, Tanzania is the largest country of those making up East Africa, stretching over 943,000 sq km and including the three offshore islands of Zanzibar, Pemba, and Mafia. Tanzania is home to a population of 55.57 million occupants, and of that number, roughly 70 percent of people live in rural areas within the country, leaving a large portion of the land uninhabited. The capital city of Tanzania is Dodoma, with a population of roughly 2.1 million inhabitants, its predecessor Dar es Salaam is a main hub within the country, operating as a major seaport and air gateway.
The country’s mainland, previously known as Tanganyika has experienced an extensive political history, having been colonized by Germans in the 19th century as German East Africa was formed, subsequently coming under British rule following the First World War. Tanganyika gained its independence in 1961, and merged with Zanzibar Island in 1964 to collectively form today’s “Tanzania”. Over 120 tribal groups exist within Tanzania, and there are over 100 spoken languages, although Swahili is the National language and English is the second most prominently spoken.
Tanzania is home to some of the most renowned game reserves and national parks in all of Africa, and the world for that matter. The famed Mount Kilimanjaro, Serengeti National Park, The Ngorongoro Crater, Selous Game Reserve (now Nyerere National Park), Tarangire National Park, Ruaha National Park, Sadani Game Resereve, Katavi National park and vibrant Zanzibar Archipelego are just some of the notable sites that Tanzania has to boast from its roster of natural wonders. The highest point in Africa exists within the country, as the iconic dormant volcano Mount Kilimanjaro reaches 5,895 meters above sea level. The country displays unique and varied landscapes, from grasslands to wetlands to densely forested areas and tropical beaches, the majority of the country’s land being wild and uninhabited by humans.
From the vast and stretching plains of the sprawling Serengeti National Park, home to the highest concentration of game in Africa to the UNESCO World Heritage Site the Ngorongoro Crater, holding the title of “world’s largest unbroken caldera”, and home to over 30,000 animals, the combination of spectacular wildlife and geographical beauty throughout the country is exceptional. Wildlife in Tanzania is some of the most abundant and fascinating, as the country is known for its large population of elephants and other migratory animals, large cats, and lengthy list of bird species.
