Tanzania Overview

Tanzania is a republic in East Africa, about twice the size of Germany. It consists of the mainland part Tanganyika and Zanzibar (Unguja Island and Pemba). Both parts of the country have been united in a union since 1964 and are governed jointly. The capital is Dodoma, the government is in Dar es Salaam, the largest city in the country.

The landscape consists mainly of plateaus and plains. In the northeast lies Kilimanjaro, which at 5895 m is not only the highest mountain in Tanzania, but also on the African continent. The cooler highlands are followed by a hot plain that extends to the Indian Ocean. The islands are close to the coast. Tanzania is one of the most wild regions on earth. Large animals such as giraffes, lions, hippos and rhinos live in the Serengeti, the dry savannah in the highlands. Many areas are specially protected as national parks and reserves.

Tanzania is a multi-ethnic state. Its population is made up of around 120 ethnic groups. The majority of the people belong to the Bantu group. Swahili, which is predominant in the region of East Africa, and English are spoken. Both are official languages, i.e. the languages ​​officially used by the authorities. Many of the residents are Christians, and there are also many Muslims living on the coast and on the islands. Part of the population follows traditional African religions.

In a global comparison, Tanzania is one of the poorest countries. Most of the residents cultivate small areas of land and live from their crops on maize, rice or millet. Coffee, tea and cloves are grown for export to other countries. The mining industry mainly supplies gold and precious stones for export. The abundance of game attracts many visitors, so tourism is also an important source of income. The mainland was initially part of the German East Africa colony. After the First World War it came under British administration until it was given independence in 1961 by Julius Nyerere ( * 1922, † 1999 ). The Sultan of Oman ruled Zanzibar from the 18th century. The island became independent in 1963.

The constitution guarantees freedom of religion. All religious communities are legally equivalent and are subject to state registration. Surveys on religious affiliation (in order to prevent religious disputes) have not been carried out by the state since the 1967 census; all statistics on religion are therefore estimates from various sources. T. differ greatly from each other. In addition, indigenous African beliefs (practiced by at least 20% of the population), often at the same time as professing Christianity, cause statistical blurring.

Over 60% of the population are counted as belonging to Christianity. They belong to the Catholic Church and the Protestant Churches or belong to the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of East Africa. The proportion of Muslims (predominantly Sunnis) in the nationwide population is over 35%. The Muslim religion is predominant on the islands. There is a Shiite minority among the Asians in Tanzania. Bahais and Hindus form other small religious groups. A small part of the population still exclusively practices traditional African religions. Many elements of this original spirituality have flowed into the Christian and Muslim faith in Tanzania.
