About Tanzania

Tanzania is located on the eastern coast of Africa, just south of the equator. With a surface area of more than 940,000 km², the country is more than twice as large as Sweden.

In everyday speech, Tanzania and Zanzibar are often referred to as two separate entities, with Tanzania referring to the mainland—the former Tanganyika—and Zanzibar to the island located in the Indian Ocean just off the coast. In fact, however, both Zanzibar and the mainland of Tanzania belong to the Union of Tanzania. So even if you go to Zanzibar, you are still in Tanzania.

When To Visit Tanzania?

You can visit Tanzania all year round and regardless of when you choose to travel, you will have many amazing experiences with nature and animals as well as a wonderful sun and beach holiday, guaranteed!
