Tanzania’s modern history began during the 8th century, as city-states were established along the coast as important trading routes. It was conquered by a variety of peoples starting with the Omanis, then the Portuguese, and finally the British. In the 1960s, after gaining independence, the two sovereign states of Tanganyika and Zanzibar merged to form the United Republic of Tanzania. In fact, the name Tanzania is a portmanteau of Tanganyika and Zanzibar.
Tanzania is famous for its landmarks such as Kilimanjaro, the highest point in Africa and Lake Victoria, the world’s second-largest freshwater lake. About 43.7% of Tanzania is listed as a protected area; however, most of the wildlife is found outside existing protected areas. This has led to increased conflicts between humans and wildlife as they compete for the same land resources. Tanzania is also home to important populations of species that endangered and threatened, such as the black rhinoceros, wild dog, chimpanzee, African elephant, cheetah, and wattled crane. Challenges to conservation include poverty, education, population growth, governance issues, lack of financial resources, and development pressures.
