TANZANIA

Because of the beautiful nature and the hospitality of locals as well as its amazing safari tours, Tanzania is one of the most attractive travel destinations on the African continent. It offers the unique opportunity to see the largest land mammals on the earth straight in the eyes.
There are more than 120 different ethnic groups there, including the legendary Maasai warriors. Despite the development of modern civilization, they have almost completely preserved their traditional way of life. In addition, the azure blue water of the Indian Ocean with the white beach of the island of Zanzibar offers an absolute feeling of relaxation. The lagoons and coral reefs are among the most impressive diving and snorkeling spots in Africa.

Tanzanian cuisine reflects both the history and the geography of the country. The food is simple, but tasty. Important ingredients are plantains, coconuts, rice, corn flour and of course chili. You should definitely try the following culinary treasures during your trip to Tanzania: Ugali (cereal porridge made from cornmeal with vegetables), Chipsi Mayai (omelette with French fries), Mshikaki (marinated, skewered meat), Zanzibar pizza (sandwich bag with cheese, onions and Egg) and Nyama Choma (grilled meat).
In total, there are 125 different languages in Tanzania. But there is no fixed official language in this country. However, the language Swahili is very popular and widely used for official matters. On the other hand, English is the language of education. With English you can get along well on site and communicate with the locals very well.
