Geography Of Tanzania

Leave your footprints all over the world! Know your destination through geography. 

Tanzania has varied geography, including deep and large freshwater and salt lakes, many national parks and Africa’s highest point Mount Kilimanjaro (5,895 m or 19,341 ft). Northeast of Tanzania is all about mountains and includes a dominant volcano and pare mountain ranges. Kilimanjaro attracts thousands of tourists each year. 

Toward the north are Uganda and Kenya; toward the west, Burundi, Rwanda, and Congo; and toward the south, Mozambique, Zambia, and Malawi. Its region is multiple times that of New Mexico. Tanzania contains three of Africa's best-known lakes—Victoria in the north, Tanganyika in the west, and Nyasa in the south. Mount Kilimanjaro in the north, 19,340 ft (5,895 m), is the most elevated point on the landmass. The island of Zanzibar is isolated from the terrain by a 22-mile channel.

Further northwest is Lake Victoria on the Kenya– Uganda– Tanzania fringe. This is the biggest lake in Africa by surface territory and is customarily named as the wellspring of the Nile River. Lake Victoria covers 69,490 sq km (26,832 sq miles), which is Africa's biggest lake and 49% of it lies in Tanzania.
