Cities in Tanzania

Dar Es Salaam
Dar es Salaam, formerly Mzizima, is Tanzania’s largest and richest city, the largest city in eastern Africa by population, and is a regionally important economic centre. It is the capital of the Dar es Salaam Region administrative province and consists of three local government areas or administrative districts: northern Kinondoni, central Ilala, and southern Temeke. The region had a population of 4,364,541 as of the official 2012 census. Although Dar es Salaam lost its status as the nation’s capital to Dodoma in 1974 (not completed until 1996), it remains the focus of the permanent central government bureaucracy.

Attractions in Tanzania
Tanzania is home to some of Africa’s most famous national parks and the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro rising above the Serengeti. Most visitors will find themselves passing through Dar es Salaam and heading out on safaris and various wildlife viewing adventures. For those who want to take a break and spend some time soaking up the sun, the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar beckon. Off Pemba and Mafia islands is a whole other kind of natural wonder, one most appreciated by the scuba divers and snorkelers who come here from around the world to experience the coral gardens, colorful fish, and crystal clear waters. Few of them are Mount Kilimanjaro, Serengeti National Park, Zanzibar Beaches, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Manyara National Park, Mafia Island, Tarangire National Park, Pemba Island, Stone Town, Selous Game Reserve and Arusha National Park and many more.
