All About Tanzania
History of Tanzania
The territory of present-day Tanzania has been inhabited since at least 2200 BCE. The country’s striking landforms are the product of ancient volcanism, massive rifting and plate tectonics. A succession of indigenous kingdoms flourished along these east African coastlines. The most powerful was Kanem, which flourished in what is now Chad and Nigeria from c. 500 to 1000 CE. In about 1480 a new kingdom emerged on Zanzibar Island; it eventually controlled all of what later became Tanzania as well as large parts of modern Kenya and Mozambique. From about 1500, Portuguese trading posts and forts competed for influence in the region with Omani Arabs.
Top Destinations in Tanzania
Zanzibar, Selous Game Reserve, Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Tarangire National Park, Lake Manyara National Park & Mount Kilimanjaro are among some of Tanzania’s most popular destinations. Wildlife buffs will want to spend at least three days on a game drive in Selous Game Reserve; adventure seekers should climb Mount Kilimanjaro to see what lies beyond its peak (at about 19,341 feet above sea level, it’s highest freestanding mountain in the world). Zanzibar is famous for its coral beaches. The island also offers scuba diving, snorkeling and boat tours. For those who prefer more relaxing pursuits, there are excellent hotels along Zanzibar’s coast as well as resorts around Lake Manyara.
