The largest country in East Africa, Tanzania boasts the continent’s highest mountain, the historical spice islands of Zanzibar, the world’s largest game reserve and probably the most famous national park. For many it is the ultimate safari destination and with National Parks and Game reserves covering 28% of the country, Tanzania has more land devoted to wildlife than anywhere else in the world.
Tanzania has approximately 120 ethnic groups and Tanzanians value their country’s multicultural heritage. The tall red-robed Masai are the best known of Tanzania’s peoples, inhabiting the northern regions of the country. Tanzania’s coast is home to the Swahili people, a vibrant mix of Arab, Indian and Bantu origins.
