It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to the official website of the Embassy of the United Republic of Tanzania in Cairo, Egypt. This website is intended to serve as a continuous source of information on Tanzania as a country of unfolding and unlimited opportunities for business, investment, tourism and for those interested in Tanzania in general.
Tanzania is a peaceful and stable country and a home to the world renowned tourism destinations including Mount Kilimanjaro the roof of Africa, exotic Zanzibar island, and more than sixteen (16) wildlife-rich national parks including Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater, Selous and many more. Indeed Tanzania is blessed with abundant natural resources and very attractive lakes and rivers. Apart from wealth in wildlife land, agriculture and forestry, Tanzania is also very rich in minerals such as tanzanite, diamond, gold, iron, coal, nickel, uranium, oil and natural gas.
Egypt and Tanzania have close historical relations. The two countries in 2014 celebrated the 50th anniversary of establishing the diplomatic bilateral relations, when Salim Ahmed Salim former secretary-general of Organization of African Unity became the first Tanzanian ambassador in Egypt in 1964 after the unity between Tanganyika and Zanzibar.
Tanzania has emphasized that the bilateral diplomatic relations are historical since the era of the first Tanzanian president Julis Nyerere and late president Gamal Abdel Nasser
The Embassy remain fully committed to construct the comprehensive cooperative partnership featuring mutual benefit and win-win outcome, and to strengthen Tanzania - Egypt relationship and other countries around the area named Lebanon, Palestine, Libya, Iraq, Syria and Jordan
It is my anticipated hope that this website offers you a window of opportunity to better understand our country, Tanzania, famously referred to as “THE LAND OF KILIMANJARO, ZANZIBAR AND THE SERENGETI”.
