Tanzania Basic Facts:
Tanzania is a popular East African destination for visitors, it has many natural attractions including Zanzibar, Mount Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater. Tanzania is a large country and its infrastructure isn't great so it takes time to get around. Tanzanians have a very friendly reputation and other than petty theft, violent crime is quite rare.
Location: Tanzania is located in East Africa bordering the Indian Ocean, between Kenya and Mozambique,
Area: 945,087 sq km, a little more than twice the size of California.
Capital City: Dodoma (but the commercial capital and largest city is Dar es Salaam).
Population: Around 39 million people live in Tanzania.
Language: Kiswahili or Swahili (official), English (official, primary language of commerce, administration, and higher education), Arabic (widely spoken in Zanzibar) and many local languages.
Religion: Mainland - Christian 30%, Muslim 35%, and indigenous beliefs 35%. Zanzibar, more than 99% Muslim
Climate: Tanzania lies just south of the equator and on the whole enjoys a tropical climate. There are two rainy seasons, generally the heaviest rains (called Masika) usually fall from mid-March to May and a shorter period of rain (called mvuli) from November to mid-January. The dry season, with cooler temperatures, lasts from May to October.
For visits to Maasai villages, tourists will get the chance to have a fascinating experience learning about the Maasai way of traditional life and their pastoral ways, marked by the herds of cattle the people collect to show their wealth.
Camel rides through the village can be arranged with enough advance notice. If you are lucky, you will get to catch them performing their traditional initiation ritual which marks the transition for their young teenagers into manhood.
The Hadzabe Bushmen
We also provide visits to Hadzabe Bushmen, who live in the dry terrain near Lake Eyasi, south of Ngorongoro crater in Tanzania and who have existed in this region for over 3000 years.
The Hadzabe people are nomads and thus don’t live in the same place for long. They only set up camp for several days or even months and then when they have harvested the resources of their current location, they move to another area. Their moves are normally influenced by climate changes and the availability of wild fruits and vegetation for their animals.
