Karibu Tanzania! We hope you have a wonderful stay in one of East Africa’s gems. Home to Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti and Zanzibar, Tanzania covers an area of 365,756 square miles and is home to approximately 51.82 million people.

Tanzania was formerly known to the world as Tanganyika before it became an independent state (from the United Kingdom) in 1961. The merger of Tanganyika and Zanzibar in 1964 called for a new name thus Tanzania was born.

While Kiswahili is the official language of Tanzania, the country consists of an estimated 125 ethnic groups, including Chagga, Maasai, and Sukuma. About a third of the country practices Islam, another third practice Christianity and the last third practices their own indigenous beliefs. How is it possible that people with such diverse linguistic, cultural and religious backgrounds can live relatively peacefully among each other? This is one of the most beautiful puzzles of Tanzania and one many people continue to try to answer. What will you discover during your stay here?

El Mundo Safaris offers you private access to the raw and remote landscapes of a treasured African wilderness. We offer guests the opportunity to experience a contemporary African safari that redefines the meaning of reconnecting with nature.
