Two words: Zanzibar and Kilimanjaro. These words conjure up the sprawling wildlife, the harsh sunlight, vast savannahs and exotic palm beaches that make up Tanzania.

Tanzania deserves closer inspection because beyond what the guidebooks and tour guides will say, these will not be enough to cover the multi-faceted beauty and appeal of Tanzanian culture. Setting off to climb the big snow-capped mountain? Want to join the Nane Nane festival in Arusha?…READ MORE 

Tanzania is in Eastern Africa, bordering the Indian Ocean, between Kenya and Mozambique. Varies from tropical along coast to temperate in highlands. Plains along coast; central plateau; highlands in north, south. The official languages are Kiswahili and English. English is understood at business and official levels but is not spoken as well as in other parts of East Africa. Professional Tanzanians understand English, but many write and express themselves poorly. English is associated with the upper classes and government services. Kiswahili is more widespread, including the local media. A few basic phrases of Swahili are invaluable in business circles and Tanzanians show great appreciation if visitors learn a few words. Arabic is spoken on the island of Zanzibar. The main religions are Christianity, Islam. The economy of Tanzania is mostly based on agriculture, which accounts for more than half of the GDP, provides approximately 85% of exports, and employs approximately 80% of the workforce.

Climate

Climate
 
Just south of the equator, Tanzania’s size means that the climate varies considerably within it. The coolest months occur during the northern hemisphere’s summer, and all-year round the weather remains pleasant and comfortable. Between June to October, temperatures range from around 10 degrees Celsius (50° Fahrenheit) in the northern highlands to about 23 degrees Celsius (73° Fahrenheit) on the coast. The main rainy season, or the ‘long rains’ falls from March till May. The long dry season lasts throughout June, July, August, September and October when rainfall is unusual, even on the islands. During November and December there’s another rainy season: the ‘short rains’. These are much lighter than the main rains and less reliable.
