Tanzania is located in the east coast of Africa just right southern the equatorial latitude line. The country borders Kenya in the north, Rwanda, Burundi and Democratic Republic of the Congo in the west, and Zambia, Malawi and Mozamique in the south. It is the biggest country in East Africa with 943.000km2, counting the continental area and the islands in the ocean.
Edging the African shore in front of the Indic Ocean, Tanzania’s weather and temperature is as good as you can imagine. Warm and sunny days followed by chilled evenings and nights regardless if you are in the plains of the Serengeti or enjoying beautiful tropical beaches in Zanzibar, temperatures are always pleasant.
Warm and sunny days are not all what Tanzania has to offer. Within the country there are about 47 million people with a vast variety of tribes and traditions bringing up this amazing richness in culture.
Tanzania’s geography is all about extremes, containing the highest peak in Africa called Mount Kilimanjaro and the lowest point being the bottom of Lake Tanganyika which is the second deepest sweet water lake in the world. This country also takes part of the biggest lake in Africa, the Victoria Lake as well as the Great African Rift Valley!
The history of Tanzania is one of the most precious treasures and probably the biggest pride of its people, starting from the beginnings of humanity when this land has always been called home by us, possessing archaeological places like Olduvai Gorge to prove it. Also it has been a place for sailors and merchants who were using its shores to commercialize and stock up their ships.
