Safari in Tanzania
Tanzania is a massive country, almost four times the size of neighboring Kenya and Uganda. Its history is rich in Swahili culture and tradition.
When Julius Nyerere, Tanzania’s first president, came to power in the 1960’s, he introduced “Ujamma” — a form of African socialism based on cooperative agriculture, which he believed would unite the people. This strategy unfortunately did not work and in 1985 when he stepped down, the country’s economy was in shambles, especially compared to neighbouring Kenya, which continued to grow under President Daniel Arap Moi.
In the last 30 years, however, Tanzania has grown exponentially and has made serious strides in tourism, protecting its parks and establishing a number of UNESCO world heritage sites.
