Tanzania

Tanzania is an East African country of roughly 43 million people with it's capital at Dodoma and a largest city of Dar es Salaam. It is the worlds 31st largest country. My favorite thing about Tanzania is the wonderful coffee they produce. African coffees are some of the best in my opinion. Coffee is native only to Africa (and maybe parts of the Arabian peninsula), so it is no surprise it is some of the best.

Tanzania more than most countries has vast, grand, beautiful landscapes. Fewer places are more associated with big game, wild animals and still natural habitats than Tanzania. Two other crops of note are cloves and sisal, which is used to make twine. The main import partner of Tanzania is China. Tanzania was the 16th largest producer of gold as of 2006.

Mount Kilimanjaro is located in Tanzania and is about 19,000 feet tall. The spectacular 30 mile long Olduvai Gorge is also in Tanzania. People in Tanzania speak Swahili and English. Christians make up 62 percent of the population with a significant minority of 35% Moslem.
