Tanzania Facts!

As the Luponde estate is situated in the stunning Livingstonia Mountains in Southern Tanzania I thought it would be good to share with you some key facts about Tanzania. Some of these may be things you didn't know and if like us you are fans of a pub quiz they may one day come in handy!

• In 1964 Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged to form the United Republic of Tanzania

• Tanzania is one of the oldest known inhabited areas on Earth

• The official languages in Tanzania are Swahili and English

• Tanzania has a population of about 43 million making it the 30th largest in the world

• Tanzania is the third largest producer of gold in Africa, after South Africa and Ghana

• Tanzania is home to Mount Kilimanjaro, which at 5,895 meters is the largest mountain in Africa

• Tanzania has Lake Victoria, Africa’s largest, and Lake Tanganika, Africa’s deepest

• Tanzania is bordered by 8 countries

• Whilst Dodoma is the capital of Tanzania, it is Dar es Salaam which is the largest city and also the major seaport for the country and it’s landlocked neighbours

• Tea was introduced to Tanzania by German settlers in 1902

• Commercial production of tea began in Tanzania in 1926 and increased considerably after World War II, when the British took over the tea plantations.

• Tanzania sells pineapple Fanta (a personal favourite of mine!)

Below are some stunning photos of the Luponde estate and they show you just how beautiful a location it is!
