It is one of the last places on earth where you can go on a safari and see African the way was wild and peaceful. The United Republic of Tanzania in Africa is in central East Africa, and it is a member of the commonwealth. It has well run a stable government, and at present, it is the poster child of good governance in Africa. The country is safe to travel in, and Tanzania is warm friendly and welcoming.

Tanzania is bordered by Republics of Kenya & Uganda to the north, Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west.  Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique border Tanzania to the south.  Tanzania's sea-facing eastern borders are on the Indian Ocean. Tanzania is a unitary republic composed of 27 regions.  Since 1995, the official capital of Tanzania has been Dodoma, where parliament and some government offices are located.  Between independence and 1995, the primary coastal city of Dar es Salaam had been Tanzania's political capital. Today, Dar es Salaam remains the seat of most government institutions.  It is the principal seaport in Tanzania and its landlocked neighbours.

The name Tanzania is a combination of the two words Tanganyika and Zanzibar. The two states united in 1963 to form the United Republic of Tanganyika and Zanzibar, which later the same year was renamed to be Tanzania. Tanzania is divided into 26 regions, called koa, of which twenty-one are on the mainland and five on Zanzibar Island. Ninety-nine districts, referred to as Wilaya, had been created to increase local authority further. At present, 114 councils are operating in 99 districts in Tanzania: 22 are urban, and 92 are rural. The 22 urban areas are also classified as:
