Tanzania Flag

United Republic of Tanzania , is a sovereign state in central East Africa bordered by Kenya and Uganda to the north, Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west, and Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique to the south. The country's eastern borders lie on the Indian Ocean. The United Republic of Tanzania is a unitary republic composed of 26 mikoa . The current head of state is President Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete, elected in 2005. Since 1996, the official capital of Tanzania has been Dodoma, where parliament and some government offices are located. Between independence and 1996 the major coastal city of Dar es Salaam had been the country's political capital. Today Dar es Salaam remains the principal commercial city of Tanzania and the de-facto seat of most government institutions. It is the major seaport for the country and its landlocked neighbours. The name Tanzania is a portmanteau of Tanganyika and Zanzibar. The two states united in 1964 to form the United Republic of Tanganyika and Zanzibar, which later the same year was renamed the United Republic of Tanzania.

The best time to make this trip is during the Green Season (which is from late May to early June) and from November to December, when the great herds of wildebeest and zebra are usually in the central Serengeti area. While the movements of thousands of animals cannot be predicted, what is certain is that whatever month you chose to go you will catch some action, since the flying area is over the Seronera river. Here, predators lie in wait besi...

The biggest annual event of Tanzania Attraction for tourist - Dar Es Salaam
The biggest annual event of Tanzania Attraction for tourist The biggest annual event in Tanzania begins at the Serengeti National Park near the Kenyan border, when huge herds of wildebeest head for greener pastures in Kenya. Starting in April each year, more than 2 million of these animals migrate northwards across the Serengeti's plains accompanied by zebras, antelopes, gazelles, lions and tourists.
