Serengeti Safari Tanzania
Tanzania is made up of mainland Tanganyika and the Islands of Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia which occupy over 2600 sq kms on the Indian Ocean. The mainland has a coastline of over 800 kms of beaches, most of them palm-fringed. The topography ranges from 5895 m at the peak of Africa’s highest mountain to the depth within the Great Rift Valley of Lake Tanganyika, 772 m deep, the worlds second deepest lake.
The history of Tanzania goes back over one and half million years ago. At Ol Duvai Gorge the remains of the earliest known mankind were discovered here in 1959 by Dr Louis Leakey. Likewise, relics of long extinct birds and animals have also been uncovered. Excavations have also revealed Roman coins and Chinese pottery. Between the 11th and 16th century, there was also a considerable development along the coast, during which time the Kiswahili language evolved, being a derivative of African, Persian and Arab languages.
Tanganyika attained independence on 9th December 1961 and a year later the country became a Republic within the Commonwealth.
