Karibu Tanzania! We hope you have a wonderful stay in Africa’. Home to Mt. Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti and Ngorongoro, 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. The current president is John Pombe Magufuli, a former maths and chemistry professor.
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 country practices Islam, another third practices Christianity and the last third practices their own indigenous beliefs. How is it possible that a people with such a 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 of many people continue to try to answer. What will you discover during your stay here?
