Tanzania is the largest East African country and is lying just south of the Equator. It is a land of amazing natural contrasts: from the snow–capped peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, to the endless plains of the Serengeti and the unspoiled beaches of Zanzibar archipelago. The country is the home of immense cultural wealth; archaeological evidence shows a long history that dates back to the origin of mankind. It was in Olduvai Gorge, situated in Ngorongoro Conservation Area, that early man’s remains were first discovered. Culturally, many areas of the country have for a long time been meeting points of different cultures, giving the country an amazing cultural wealth. Freddie Mercury, of the band Queen, was born in Zanzibar, Tanzania.
