Recognising the need for such a publication, the

Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB) took the opportunity to support to prospective visitors to our beautiful country. After all, Tanzania offers some of Africa’s finest game viewing in our well managed parks with their high concentrations of animals, of which the Ngorongoro Crater, the Serengeti’s animal migration and Mt Kilimanjaro are among the Seven Natural Wonders of Africa. Thankfully, Tanzania continues to pursue a policy whereby the quality of visitors is more important than sheer numbers. And this is also true for the accommodation in our wildlife reserves.

perfect for business and leisure Of course, Tanzania is much more than just wildlife. The islands of Mafia and Zanzibar have powder-white beaches and a dazzlingly eclectic collection of properties, ranging from classy hotels to simple but charming guest-houses. Dar es Salaam, our commercial capital, has fine hotels catering for visiting business executives and conference delegates. In addition to being the gateway to the Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti and Arusha, too, is active in the conference sector. So whatever your reason for visiting Tanzania and whatever your budget, I’m sure we have the exact property for you and, what’s more, we look forward to seeing you.

Karibu sana.

together with South Asian, Arab and other groups. The result of this mix is a rich history that can be traced back some 3.6 million years to humanity’s earliest known ancestors, who left their footprints near Olduvai Gorge in northern Tanzania. Down the centuries, waves of migrants, many from the Bantu-speaking tribes, moved across the land mass we know today as Tanzania. A vibrant culture with international connections flourished along the Swahili coast before the land was colonised by Germany in the 19th century. The mainland, known as Tanganyika, came under British rule in 1918. This lasted until a liberation movement propelled Julius Nyerere into power and united Tanganyika with Zanzibar in 1963 to form Tanzania. His leadership, which lasted until 1985, will be remembered most for socialist economic planning and a fierce commitment to African liberation movements. At one point, the peace of Nyerere’s Tanzania was shattered when it went to war to crush President Idi Amin of Uganda, who attacked Tanzania in 1978.

highlands are cooler. The long rains fall from March to May, while the short rains normally last from November to January. Try to take a safari between June and September. This is ideal for game viewing because the weather is less humid and the roads are not affected by rain. When planning a visit, also remember that the Islamic holy month of Ramadan can impact on certain areas of daily life.

getting around Most visitors fly into the commercial capital, Dar es Salaam, or into Kilimanjaro, an hour by car from the northern safari hub of Arusha. Zanzibar also has an international airport. Smaller airports can be found in destinations such as Mwanza and Kigoma. Various regional and international airlines provide connecting services. A hired 4x4 vehicle is the best way to travel by road. There are also reputable taxis. Motorcyles and three-wheeled Bajaj services are convenient for negotiating the congested streets in Dar es Salaam, but local dala dala buses are a safer option. For longer distances it is possible to travel by train or long-distance bus. Check with a reliable source for up-to-date schedules, routes and safest options.

For nightlife, there are casinos and smart hotel bars in Dar es Salaam. Smaller towns have bars with live bands or small clubs with DJs playing the local hip-hop (or bongo flava) plus popular African and Western hits.

Outdoor ‘Mama Lishe’ eateries offer plentiful portions of local dishes for breakfast or lunch. Bars are best for grilled meat (nyama choma) while the better hotels offer a variety of cuisine. The coast has outstanding seafood, while the lake zone has plentiful supplies of freshwater fish. There is also Italian, Indian and Chinese food in major centres.

‘land of endless plains’ Serengeti, the ‘land of endless plains’, has a national park covering 14,760 sq km and is famous for the annual wildlife migration between December and July. Visitors can access the park by road or fly to one of several airstrips in the vicinity. Game viewing can also be enjoyed beyond the park gates. Serengeti is famous for its lions, leopards and cheetahs and visitors will also find scavengers such as spotted hyenas (which also hunt) and side-striped jackals. If budgets permit, take a dawn balloon ride to really appreciate the vastness of this natural wonder. Camping in the park is the most affordable way to stay in Serengeti, although it may be hard to secure a booking. The lodges and luxury camps are also extremely popular. Various accommodation options are available outside the park, also featuring wildlife and striking scenery. The northern highlands are home to Mount Kilimanjaro, which can be ascended by various routes if properly prepared for the trek. Also in the highlands is Tanzania’s newest national park, Mkomazi, covering 3,300 sq km. This is the scene of a series of remarkable conservation

efforts, including the reintroduction of the critically endangered black rhino and African wild dog.

Ngare Sero is one of the oldest family lodges in East Africa. Located only 30 minutes from Kilimanjaro Airport and Arusha town, it has been providing personal service for its residents for almost 40 years. Set in lush gardens amid 50 acres of forest and crystal-clear lakes on the slopes of Mount Meru, the lodge has been adapted from a German colonial farmhouse built in 1905. It offers just 10 garden rooms and three suites. Ngare Sero offers a range of attractive facilities and activities, including a 30 metre swimming pool, a massage service, forest walks with an opportunity to see colobus and sykes monkeys, birdwatching, horse riding, boating, trout fishing and sundowners with views of Mount Kilimanjaro.

Anyone who spends a few hours exploring the downtown area of this Swahili city will find a rich mix of cultures. There are good hotel restaurants serving fresh seafood bought daily from the fish market. The Msasani Peninsula is great for nightlife and evening street food at Coco Beach. Here visitors will also find the Tinga Tinga artists and craft offerings at Slipway. Further out to Mwenge its possible to explore the craft market before heading back to the city centre via Ocean Road – perhaps with a stop for some refreshing coconut water – to enjoy the tranquil Botanical Gardens.

arts in bagamoyo Bagamoyo, 72 km from Dar es Salaam, was a major East African trading port in the 19th century. Many of the great explorers passed through here and it has strong links with Christian missionaries. Swahili and German colonial-style buildings can still be seen and the Roman Catholic Mission Museum helps explain the historical significance of the place. Today Bagamoyo is known for its arts festival, sculpture school and creative community. Just 5 km to the south are the ruins of Kaole, once a major trading town.

the COASTAL circuit

Heading north by road for some 350 km from Dar es Salaam, visitors can reach Tanga port. There are also flights from Dar es Salaam, Arusha and Zanzibar. The town’s 19th century buildings display both Indian and colonial influences. Further afield, a popular attraction is limestone Amboni Caves, covering 15 sq km.

Pangani The sleepy town of Pangani lies at the mouth of Tanzania’s second-largest river. This former slave port has a few crumbling relics of its painful history, not least the harsh era of colonial rule by imperial Germany. Tour operators can advise on cultural tourist programmes and town walks. On either side of the town there is a choice of accommodation along pristine beaches. Snorkelling and diving enthusiasts should head 13 km south-east of Pangani to discover the Maziwe Island Marine Reserve.

wildlife and heritage The Mafia Archipelago, 130 km south of Dar es Salaam, is easily reached by air from Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar. This former slave-trading centre has historical ruins linked to the days of Arab and German colonial rule. Visitors can take a trail to see the giant Comoros fruit bats and enjoy superb birdwatching. The Mafia Island Marine Park, covering 822 sq km of reefs, coast and mangroves, is an important nesting site for hawksbill and green turtles. Mafia is famous for its snorkelling and scuba diving and has dive centres in the exclusive accommodation around

The beach hotels near the small town of Kilwa Masoko provide a convenient base for snorkelling, diving or exploring the Swahili ruins of Kilwa Kisiwani island. back to the 14th century, this United Nations World Heritage Site can be accessed by traditional dhow or motorboat. Other ruins can be found on nearby islands. The town of Kilwa Kivinje flourished in the 19th century as a slaving centre and finally came under German rule. There are ruins from colonial times around the small settlement. Further south, Lindi, Mtwara and Mikidani offer more opportunities to explore the heritage and marine attractions of the coast. The Mnazi Bay-Ruvuma Estuary Marine Park is ideal for snorkelling and scuba diving.

The Tanzania associaTion of Tour operaTors

T

he Tanzania Association of Tour Operators (TATO) was established in 1983 to promote and represent individual tour operators in Tanzania and at

international level. It was established at the peak of Tanzania’s economic crisis, when the economy was dominated by the public sector. TATO aims to unify the interests of private tour operators by engaging the government in dialogue to promote tourism and by working to achieve a high quality of tourist services, both nationally and internationally. TATO has over 200 members. Its strategic objectives include: promoting and facilitating members to provide marketable tourist services into the local and world markets; acting as a link between the members, the government and its institutions; coordinating members and helping them in all technical matters pertaining to tourism; and promoting the ability of tour operators to interact with the community at large and to protect the interests of individual tourists.

diverse culture The 800,000 inhabitants of Zanzibar could be described as a ‘mixture of mixtures’, reflecting the waves of incomers to the archipelago over the centuries. Persian, Arab, Indian, European, Bantu and other civilizations have influenced and enriched the people of these islands and this rich intermingling is reflected in the Swahili language. Zanzibar, like mainland Tanzania, has two rain seasons. Temperatures are highest between December and February and coolest from May to September. The relative humidity is high, meaning daily temperatures can sometimes be as high as 40°C. To reach the main island of Zanzibar, visitors can make use of the reliable and comfortable ferry services from Dar es Salaam. Various Tanzanian airports also offer flights.

lock valuables safely in the hotel room or beach hut. The streets are particularly deserted in the early evening during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. Many normal routines are changed during this period and may impact on any holiday. Stone Town is the most obvious starting place for an exploration of the main island. Visitors will find small shops, cafés and mosques among a maze of streets filled with traditional houses, dating mainly from the 19th century. There are many reminders of Zanzibar’s history as a slave trading centre. The Anglican Cathedral, for example, contains original slave chambers. Nearly every street has carved doors and other features drawn from the town’s Arab and Indian cultures. Buildings on the waterfront reflect the wealth of the island’s ancient rulers and traders. The superbly restored Old Dispensary, the Palace Museum and the House of Wonders are all open for visitors, while the imposing Old Fort is a reminder of the Omani empire’s might. The town’s main market and surrounding shops open the senses to the magical ingredients that make up the local cuisine.

marine life Further afield, visitors can explore historical ruins and tour the spice plantations that have been a key source of income for Zanzibar. Other notable destinations are the heavily forested Jozani-Chwaka Bay National Park, the Butterfly Centre and Zala Park. Visitors can sail out to see dolphins from Menai Bay, while giant turtles can be found on Prison Island. Zanzibar’s reefs have an array of marine life, and diving and

music and nightlife There is a showbiz connection with the rock star Freddie Mercury, whose birthplace in Stone Town is now a live music venue. There is a modest nightlife scene in the upmarket hotels and bars of Stone Town. Authentic Zanzibari music is provided by taarab orchestras.

Accommodation varies from relatively simple hotels in Stone Town to smart, boutique-style accommodation with fine Swahili-style design. Along the coast you will find simple beach huts on the sand, comfortable beach cottages and exclusive top-end hotels. Pemba has a less developed infrastructure than the main island, so there are far fewer tourists and a narrower choice of accommodation.

delicious dishes Zanzibari cuisine is well worth sampling. The evening street food stalls of Stone Town’s Forodhani Gardens offer an exciting introduction to treats such as Zanzibari pizza. In the old town, visitors can stop for a roadside coffee, traditionally served black in tiny cups with sweet offerings like kashata made from nuts, coconut or sesame. Cafés will serve a more filling breakfast of fresh bread (with coconut), chapatis and spiced masala tea. For lunch, try the various biryanis for which Zanzibar is famous. Across the island, seafood is an ideal choice for dinner, with prices to suit everyone. International cuisine can also be enjoyed in central Stone Town.

perfect celebrations Zanzibar is the perfect postsafari beach retreat, and an idyllic setting for weddings, honeymoons and celebrations. Tour operators and the island’s hospitality sector are on hand to create a unique experience for visitors and their guests. Conferences and businessrelated meetings are also held throughout the year on the

Days of spice and slave trading Zanzibar’s original settlers were Bantu-speaking Africans. Recent archaeological discoveries indicate that the people of Zanzibar and the Swahili Coast were interacting with other civilizations many generations before the Islamic traders who arrived in the 10th century. These merchants initially came from Persia; but it was the Arabs, especially Omanis, who had the greatest influence. The Omanis founded trading colonies, repelled the occupation of the Portuguese empire and in 1832 the Omani sultan actually moved his capital from Muscat to Zanzibar. The main island was now a major spice and slave-trading centre. Zanzibar eventually became an independent sultanate; but the rising influence of the German and British empires in the 1800s eroded the power of the ruling dynasty. Eventually, de facto control passed to Great Britain, although a sultan remained in nominal control. During the 20th century the population saw the rise of political groupings along ethnic lines. Despite political factions and hostilities, the British granted Zanzibar full independence in 1963. The sultan at the time remained head of state, a move vehemently opposed by political groups representing the African majority. They overthrew the minority Arab elite in 1964 and the presidents of Zanzibar and Tanganyika signed an act of union, giving semi-autonomy to Zanzibar.
