Detailed History Of Tanzania As The Best African Safari Destination
Brief History of Tanzania
The United Republic of Tanzania is one of the best safari tour destinations in Africa. It is bordered by Burundi, Rwanda, Malawi, Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Comoros, and the Indian Ocean. The highest point in the country is Mount Kilimanjaro (the highest mountain in Africa) which offers some of the best mountaineering safaris tours in Tanzania and Africa. Tanzania has some of the oldest settlements on earth. The fossils found in Olduvai Gorge are 2 million years old. These early humans were later replaced by hunter/gatherers related to the Khoisan people of southern Africa.
After these early gatherers and hunters, tribes from West Africa began to migrate and settle in the country 2,000 years ago. The first foreigners (outside Africa) to arrive in the country were Arab and Persian traders. This destination has an exciting Tanzanian cultural safaris tour. They were joined in 1948 by the first Europeans, led by the Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama. The Portuguese solved the cost problem in a relatively short time before the Arabs drove them out. Germany later colonized the country before the British took over after World War I. During this period, Indian Ocean islands such as Zanzibar were administered separately.
When Did Tanzania get Independent?
At independence in 1964, mainland Tanzania merged with the islands of Zanzibar to form the United Republic of Tanzania. Tanzania now has a population of about 56 million and 120 ethnic groups. Although these people all speak their language, they share knowledge of Swahili. To get the most out of your Tanzania safaris tour, you should know at least some Swahili.
Swahili is the language of communication in lower courts, primary schools, and parliamentary debates. English is mainly used in diplomacy, foreign trade, high courts, and secondary/tertiary institutions. The capital is Dodoma, but Dar es Salaam is by far the largest city. It is the commercial and cultural center of the country and houses most of the government institutions.
The Economy of Tanzania
Tanzania’s economy is heavily dependent on agriculture and tourism. The tourism industry accounts for about 17.5% of the country’s GDP, and more than 1.3 million tourists visit the country every year for unforgettable safaris to Tanzania. Therefore, the country has a very developed tourism industry compared to many African countries. Tanzania has some of the best safaris tour attractions in the world, making Tanzania safaris the best seller in East Africa. 38% of the country’s land is protected or reserved for conservation purposes. The country has 17 national parks, 40 protected areas, and several marine parks.
