The number of inhabitants in Tanzania is around 47, 915, 000 people.
Tanzania is located in the middle of Africa,
closer to the eastern side, next to the Indian Ocean.
This is Jakaya Kikwete, the
fourth President of the
United Republic of Tanzania.
(The United Republic of Tanzania)
He was elected first on
December 14, 2005, and served
his first term, but later was elected for

Tourist Attractions -
Ruaha National Park - page 1 of 3

to watch the overflowing
wildlife in the Park.

Mount Kilimanjaro is Africa's tallest peak.
It measures in at exactly 19,331 feet tall.
Mount Kilimanjaro was
actually a volcano at one
point and is now dormant.
Mountaineers and hikers, since it is
so well known, are drawn to it, not only
because of it's sheer beauty,
but because of the great climb.
Cultural Events - Mwaka Kogwa - page 1 of 2
Mwaka Kogwa is a celebration that
goes on for four days for New Years.
During the festival, the Tanzanians
have huge bonfires and fights.
The men tussle, using the stems
of bananas to protect themselves.
All the while, the women take
a stroll through the meadow,
singing about romance and life.
The festivities are held near the end of July.
Cultural Events - Christmas - page 2 of 2
Christmas in Tanzania
is just like we celebrate it if
you're a Christian in the United States.
The Christian Tanzanians put up a giant Christmas tree where everyone can see it, usually in the middle of town.
They also have a
mass at midnight,
and the restaurants
serve many traditional
and even desserts.
On the other hand, the Tanzanian
Christians, unlike us, celebrate the
season by going to amusement
parks, music concerts, and
Natural Resources and Climate
Tanzania is very rich in natural resources.
Many include gold, diamond, nickel, cobalt, salt,
Tanzanite, coal, gas, phosphate, gypsum, iron ore, and uranium.
It is also one of the leading producers of gold in Africa.
Currently in Tanzania, the weather patterns are becoming strange.
It is now starting to rain in deserts and be dry in rainy areas.
To us in the United States, Tanzania is weird, for when we are recovering from winter, (March, April, and May), they are getting downpours and it is very humid.
Their dry period lasts June through October, and somehow their temperatures can range from fiercely cold to extremely warm.
Tanzania's light rainy season occurs when we are all buried in six feet of snow, (November and December), and soon after that, a short dry season soaks up the rain, (January and February).
Vegetation and Land Use
In Tanzania, a tourist will mostly see fields and open grasslands.
Anyone will also see some wooded areas like forests and sunny savannahs.
Fruit trees and spices are abundant, and some swampy areas could be found about.
Fruit trees and spice herbs are an abundance in the area, and some swampy areas can be found about.
A small percent of land use in Tanzania comes from the cultivation of the area, where people grow lots of grains, such as maize, rice, and wheat.
The least amount of use of the land is for crops like some fruits, coffee, rubber, blossoms, nut trees, and even vines.
Most of the percentage is supported by the "other" department, mostly fields, pastures, and forests.
The first colonists were Arabians who came around 700 A.D.
The Omanis take over Zanzibar, (one of the original two nation-states), in 1699.
On April 26, 1964, Tanzania was founded from Tanganyika and Zanzibar.
These are some early Arabians who may have been first to inhabit Tanzania.
Scientific timeline of Tanzania
Gold stands for the minerals of Tanzania.
Red is the fertile soil of Africa.
The wavy blue and white stripes represent the lakes and seas in Tanzania.
Freedom and intelligence are both symbolized by the torch.
The spear signifies the defense of their freedom.
The hoe and ax stand for -
- the tools used to develop the country.
The coat of arms also contains a mountain representing Mount Kilimanjaro, ivory elephant tusks, and two people holding them up.
Working together is what -
- the clove and cotton bush symbolize.
They also have a coat of arms.
These are giraffes, one of the great amounts of species in Ruaha.
Mount Kilimanjaro is not only very tall, but has a gargantuan base, measuring 62 miles long and 40 miles wide.
Also, around 35,000 "crazy" people a year try to hike up the great Mount Kilimanjaro.
This is a Tanzanian's Christmas tree, which looks very funny to us.
In 2011, Bernard Kiwia was fed up from having to travel across town to charge his cell phone, so he designed a bike that charged his phone by pedaling it.
Athumani Msekeni designed
a car engine/generator
that runs on air in 2006.
It is now currently used for pumping water to farms and helps out the agriculture department and creates electricity.
During the early 1960s, when doctors were scarce in Tanzania, the doctors that were around trained people without experience, called "barefoot doctors", to help spread medicine to all people who needed it around Tanzania.
This, of course, is Athumani Msekeni, the one and only inventor of the air powered engine/generator.
Artistic Timeline of Tanzania
Freddie Mercury was the lead singer of his band group called Queen.
The band started to get together some time in 1971, and they ended up making many famous songs.
One of their more commonly known songs is "We are the Champions", which was released in the album "News of the World" in 1977.
(37 and 38)
In 1978, George Lilanga, a famous artist from Tanzania, got his work mounted in Washington D.C.
There were 280 pieces altogether, and 100 of them alone were made by "The Picasso of Africa", the nickname for Lilanga.
Later on in the 1990s, George started sculpting, as he had done before, making works carved into soft wood and painted with bright colors.
Dully Sykes is a famous musician from Tanzania, who followed in the footsteps of his father, Ebby Sykes.
He is currently living, and during his music career, Dully won two Tanzania Music Awards.
Earlier in his life, Sykes started to perform his works in the United Kingdom, which kicked off his whole career.
