Travel to Tanzania

  • Flag
Just inside the vast, open plains that dominate Tanzania visitors will feel very, very small. And so it should be, because in that moment becomes part of one of the largest populations of wildlife in the world. Wildebeest, monkeys, antelopes, lions, leopards, crocodiles, gazelles, flamingos ... a long list that Tanzania has known the ruthless hand of the white hunters, but now prefer the cameras to arms. Despite a poor economy aggravated by rowdy neighbors and opportunistic colonial governments, Tanzania has one of the best parts of the continent for observing wildlife. Famous parks like the Serengeti and Kilimanjaro, or the wonderful crater of Ngorongoro make it worthwhile to refuel in some of their monotonous cities. Appendix should be added the attraction of the country, Zanzibar, an island of the Tanzanian coast, and a former center of exotic spices and fragrant emanating waters of Persian baths.

In Tanzania you can visit cities like Arusha, Arusha National Park, Bagamoyo or Zanzibar (Unguja)
Other user descriptions
The United Republic of Tanzania (Jamhuri Swahili and Muungano wa Tanzania), or simply Tanzania is a country located on the east coast of Central Africa. Bordered on the north by Kenya and Uganda to the west by Rwanda, Burundi, the Democratic Republic of Congo, south to Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique and east by the Indian Ocean. The country's name comes from the union of the words "Tanganyika" and "Zanzibar." In Tanzania have found some of the oldest human settlements, including those from Olduvai Gorge where you have found the oldest human footprints (3.6 million years) at Laetoli. In this gorge, the remains of Australopithecus and Paranthropus from the past, Tanzania was visited by foreign traders, first Persians and then Arabs (who called Azania mainland Tanzania, 'black earth'). They looked especially spices, slaves and ivory, and eventually ended up founding colonies on the coast and the island of Zanzibar, Kilwa and Pemba, which served as port of embarkation and disembarkation of all goods and finally ended up becoming a series of small independent sultanates inhabited by Arab-African mestizos. In the sixteenth century, Portugal conquered Zanzibar and dominated the region for a century. In the eighteenth century, the coast was annexed by Oman, but in 1832 became independent as a sultanate with its capital in Zanzibar, governed by the Omani dynasty. In the following decades, Zanzibar fell into decline due to competition from European traders and had to evacuate his dominions slowly off the coast of the continent. Finally, the island of Zanzibar became part of the British Empire in 1896, after a war of 38 min., The shortest in history.
