The United Republic of Tanzania is a country situated in Eastern Africa. The 26 regions that Tanzania is made up of include those of the autonomous region of Zanzibar. Tourism has come to play an increasingly vital role in Tanzania’s economy. However, it is still mainly based on the agricultural sector where more than 80 per cent of the work force is employed.
Tanzania has a total population of 49 million and its capital city is Dodoma. The official and most widely spoken language is Swahili.
