More information about Tanzania tours

General about Tanzania tours

Tanzania is a country on the east coast of Africa. It borders Kenya and Uganda in the north, Mozambique, Malawi and Zambia in the south and Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the west. The name originated in 1964 when the mainland (“Tanganyika”) merged with Zanzibar. The national language of Tanzania, Swahili, is the most widely used African language. Tanzania is home to several of the most beautiful and biodiverse wildlife reserves in the world, including the Serengeti, Kilimanjaro, the Ngorongoro Crater and many more for your Tanzania tours. At the same time, Tanzania has one of the largest cultural diversity on the continent. While the mainland invites you to discover with its natural beauty, Zanzibar offers its visitors paradisiacal beaches with turquoise blue water, perfect diving areas and a very special flair, which is very different from the mainland. Zanzibar has always been a hub for all trade in the Indian Ocean, and so African, Arabic, Indian and European influences mix here to form a fascinating blend of Tanzania tours.

Geography

Tanzania is between 29 ° and 40 ° east longitude and 1 ° and 12 ° south latitude. With its 945,087 km², it is about two and a half times the size of Germany. Tanzania includes the mainland (Tanganjika) and the Zanzibar archipelago, which consists of the islands of Unguja, Pemba and Mafia, among others. The main island of Unguja is often simply called Zanzibar. The mainland can be divided into five geographical zones: the coastline, the Central African and the East African ditch, the Masai savannah in the north and the high plateau in the south.
In addition to the Indian Ocean, Tanzania also has a large share of the three largest lakes in Africa, Lake Victoria in the north, Lake Tanganyika in the west and Lake Malawi in the south. They are all part of or near the African Rift Valley. With 1470 meters depth, Lake Tanganyika is the second deepest lake in the world. On the east bank there are rain forests that are home to the famous Gombe National Park. Here Jane Goodall, among others, carried out her world-famous research on chimpanzees. Lake Malawi is one of the clearest and most diverse freshwater lakes in the world and an insider tip for divers. The East African Rift divides Tanzania’s landscape and is occasionally lined with volcanoes, such as Mount Meru. It is the second highest mountain in the country after the Kilimanjaro massif on the Kenyan border. There are many national parks in the savannah landscape of the north, including the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and the park, the visit of which is the epitome of a safari for many: the Serengeti. The Usambara mountains stretch from the savannah along the Kenyan border to the coast. The high plateau landscape in the south of the country is repeatedly interrupted by mountain ranges. The Udzungwa Mountains near Iringa are home to very diverse rainforests and are the largest mountains in southern Tanzania, with heights of up to 2576 meters. Further south are the Ruaha National Park and the Selous Reserve, which is the size of Lower Saxony, is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the largest controlled wildlife reserve in Africa. including the Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and the park, the visit of which is the epitome of a safari for many: the Serengeti.

Safety

Tanzania is generally considered a safe travel destination. Unfortunately, crime has increased in the past. Therefore, visitors should avoid nightly walks, especially near the beach – there have been repeated raids in the past. When using taxis, especially in Dar es Salaam, care should be taken to ensure that it is an officially registered taxi, as several attacks by alleged “taxi drivers” on tourists have already been reported. You can recognize the official taxis by the white license plates and the colored stripe on the side of the taxi. In recent years there have been minor attacks in Arusha and Stone Town (Zanzibar) in which people have been injured. These are probably related to tensions between the local religious communities. Visitors are therefore asked to be attentive and careful when visiting public or religious institutions and to avoid large crowds. You should also be aware that a large part of the population of Tanzania is poor and there is an enormous social gap. Small crime, especially in large cities, is therefore not uncommon. Therefore, pay special attention to valuables and avoid public wearing of eye-catching jewelry.

In Tanzania there is left-hand traffic. Therefore, be careful in road traffic, especially since poor road and vehicle conditions mean an increased risk of accidents.

 

Society & Politics-Tanzania tours

Tanzania has approximately 42.5 million inhabitants, which are divided into over 130 different ethnic groups. This makes Tanzania one of the most ethnically diverse countries in Africa making it ideal for Tanzania tours. The largest are the Sukuma and Nyamwezi on Lake Victoria. The hehe in the central highlands, the Swahili on the coast and the Chagga near the Kilimanjaro. This great diversity also harbors great linguistic diversity. All four large African language families can be found in Tanzania. Since the Kiswahili was an important commercial language in the pre-colonial era, the German colonial masters used this language and promoted its spread. Today it has the status of a national language and is also spoken in neighboring countries. Apart from Ethiopia, Tanzania is the only country with an indigenous main language. Although the use of the English language continues to decrease at the official level, many Tanzanians understand and speak English. A lot of Arabic is also spoken in Zanzibar. Tanzania has about as many Christians as Muslims, with Islam being most widespread in Zanzibar, the coastal regions and the north, while the hinterland and south are more Christian. In addition to traditional religions, which are also still strongly represented and are sometimes also practiced by Christians and Muslims, there is also a Hindu minority. However, it is limited to the Indian residents of Tanzania. To avoid religious discrepancies, no data on religious affiliation are recorded. In general, however, the religious communities coexist peacefully. Tanzania was a one-party state between independence in 1961 and 1992. The first President Nyerere strongly influenced the country with the so-called “Ujamaa” policy, an African socialism. Tanzania has been a presidential republic with several parties since 1995. Tanzania has managed to maintain a politically stable climate since independence and has always been an example of security and stability in Africa.

Infrastructure

Tanzania has a relatively well developed road network making it perfect for Tanzania tours. All major cities are connected with paved roads. The roads leading to the national parks are particularly well developed in the north. In contrast, the hinterland rarely has asphalt roads; the northern coastal road and the roads in the western part of the country are in poor condition. Disabilities can occur here in the rainy season. Tanzania has 4 international airports (Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar, Kilimanjaro and Mwanza) as well as several national ones. FastJet has recently started offering cheap domestic flight connections. There are also rail links between Dar es Salaam and Kigoma and Mwanza and an international route between Dar es Salaam and Lusaka, the capital of Zambia. However, train journeys are not very comfortable and often have massive delays. Ferries run regularly between Dar es Salaam and the islands of the Zanzibar Archipelago. The electricity and water networks in the cities are well developed. However, there are occasional blackouts. In the country, however, many places are still isolated from electricity and water supplies. The mobile network is very well developed, and the Internet is available almost everywhere, although the speed is much slower than you might be used to in Germany.

Climate

Tanzania is a tropical country, the climate of which is determined by the alternation of rainy and dry seasons. The temperatures are only subject to slight fluctuations at the turn of the year, but can vary greatly depending on the region and altitude. The climate in the coastal region is consistently hot and humid with temperatures between 27 ° C and 33 ° C. Rain falls here throughout the year, with a sharp increase between March and May. It is most pleasant on the coast from June to September. A similar climate can also be found near the large lakes. The temperatures on the central plateau are somewhat lower than on the coast. The air is also much drier here. The rainy season inland starts in November and extends into April, but is not as violent as on the coast.
In the north and northeast there are two rainy seasons: a large one from March to May and a smaller one in October / November. It is also much cooler here, with temperatures between 20 ° C and 26 ° C. At night, temperatures can drop below 10 ° C between June and September.
