Tanzania is located on the eastern coast of Africa and has an Indian Ocean coastline approximately 1,424 kilometers (885 mi) long.

There are over 120 ethnic groups on the Tanzanian mainland, most of whom migrated from other parts of Africa over the millennia, whilst on the coast.

The Tanzania culture is Swahili, an Arab/African mix, but there are also big Asian communities, particularly Indian, in towns and cities. Tribes inhabit rural areas, including the Maasai of the Great Rift Valley of the north. It is okay to photograph the locals, but always ask first. Some Maasai will charge you for this.

Africa Tanzania

From grasslands to woodlands, rock formations, and mountain peaks, there’s no question that Tanzania features some amazing opportunities for sightseeing, and photo-hunting alike. No safari would be complete without a glimpse of a few of the “Big Five,” or the chance to see some lesser-known, but equally fascinating animals.

Fortunately, Tanzania does not disappoint. The great migration is not the only aspect of Tanzania that is worth seeing. Herds of grazing animals mean that predators won’t be far away.

In Tanzania, you will have the opportunity to see lion, cheetah, leopards, and hunting dogs. If you are curious about what this beautiful country has to offer, here is are number of reasons it is regarded as one of the best safari destinations in Africa.
