Cities and Towns of Tanzania

You will not find too may large modern cities while visiting the country on a Tanzania holiday but what the towns and villages across the country lack in size they most certainly make up for in character. Most people visiting the country on an African safari holiday will make at least a stop in the largest city in the country –Dar es Salaam. Although it is no longer the official capital of the country – that honor now belongs to Dodoma – it is still considered to be the social capital of Tanzania as the new capital is not really very well known outside the country.

Arusha on the other hand could be considered the safari tourism capital of Tanzania as its unique location puts it in easy reach of the best known and most visited game reserves an National Parks.

Every town you might visit on a Tanzania holiday will have its own unique character though. Many of them have been influenced over the centuries by a number of different cultures and while some still retain a very Arab influences Eastern flavour the Europeans who came to Tanzania – the Portuguese, the Germans and the British – all left a lasting mark which when mingled with the African spirit of the land makes for truly diverse and fascinating towns that offer visitors a new experience wherever they go.
