Immerse yourself in Art

The art of the rural population. The University of Dar es Salaam has an active theatre arts group. 

Makonde carvers from southern Tanzania are renowned for their abstract ebony carvings, and Zanzibar is famous for its elaborately carved doors and Arab chests. Basket weaving, pottery, and musical instrument making are prevalent in many rural areas.

Throughout the 20th century, traditional musical themes and sounds were coupled with a variety of influences to produce popular music. 

In the 1930s music exhibiting Cuban elements was popular; in the 1960s Congolese music, with its distinctive guitar sound and blend of Cuban and African rhythms, was favoured. In the early 21st century rap and reggae emerged as choice musical genres, and mchiriku, a techno-style sound influenced by traditional rhythms, also became popular.

Step into Tanzania history and heritage

The history of human habitation in Tanzania goes back almost 2 million years, and the fossils found at Olduvai Gorge by Louis and Mary Leakey now stand among the most important artifacts of the origins of our species.

Almost all of the many attractions of Tanzania today are linked – in one way or another – to this country’s extraordinarily rich and diverse history.

This East African land has evolved through centuries of change; the gradual migration and settlement of over one hundred and twenty different tribes, the intervention of foreign merchants and explorers, years of colonial masters with their politics and wars, and finally independence, self-governance and international tourism.

Tanzania

Celebrate Tanzania's diversity

More than 120 different ethnic groups are represented in Tanzania, migrating over centuries, and many ethnic groups have retained their traditional practices, rituals, art, dance, music, and customs.

Most tribes are small; nearly 100 tribes combined account for a third of the total population, so none has dominated politically or culturally, leading to relatively peaceful political circumstances. In fact, Tanzania is a parliamentary democracy and is considered one of Africa’s most stable countries. Such stability is widely attributed to Tanzania’s first president, Julius Nyerere, who united Tanzanians with a common language and national identity in the early 1960s. A lasting peace among Tanzanians persists to this day, with only sporadic demonstrations occurring during election years.

Kiswahili is the common language in Tanzania. A Bantu language spoken by some 150 million Africans, we recommend learning some basic phrases before visiting Tanzania. Click here to read more about the various tribal groups in Tanzania.

Head into the great outdoors

On this week-long adventure, you will have plenty of opportunities to get active (and to relax). We take you to the less-visited Arusha National Park before setting out to spend time in three of Tanzania’s natural wonders, spending a night in each location. 

After Arusha, our first destination in the Northern Circuit will be scenic Lake Manyara, a favorite for both birds and animals. Next, we spend time at Serengeti National Park with its endless plains – and seemingly endless animals. We finish with a visit to the famous Ngorongoro Conservation Area with its incomparable crater. 

We combine walking with canoeing, as well as our game-drives – a great combination of ways in which to witness our Tanzanian wildlife!
