Many international travelers visit Tanzania for Mount Kilimanjaro, the Ngorongoro Crater, or for safaris through the many national parks. Foreign influences, dating back to the eighth century, introduced trading of slaves and other commodities throughout Tanzania, and some of these influences continue to affect Tanzania today. Previously known as Tanganyika, Tanzania gained its independence from Great Britain in 1961. In 1964, Tanganyika and the island of Zanzibar merged to form Tanzania.

Regardless of their relatively new independence and past struggles with colonialism, Tanzanian people have immense pride in their country’s history and its many religions, languages, and cultures. Deep respect for elders, compassion for the ill, and prolonged greetings are only a few characteristics of the culture of Tanzania. These characteristics — along with a strong work ethic, peace-keeping attitude, a genuine joy of life, and a desire to learn.
