Tanzania Travel

Tanzania Travel - Tanzania is in East Africa with the Indian Ocean on the coast to the east. It shares land borders with Uganda and Kenya in the north, Mozambique and Malawi in the south, Zambia in the south-west and Zaire, Burundi and Rwanda in the west. Tanzania is quintessentially Africa with the wildebeest migration across endless savannah, the snow of Mt Kilimanjaro, the Masai warriors and exotic beaches of Zanzibar.

Time In Tanzania

In Tanzania, the 12 hour clock is sometimes used locally which may be somewhat confusing to visitors. The first time cycle starts with 'one' at 7 am and goes to 'twelve' at 6 pm. The second time cycle starts with 'one' at 7 pm and goes on to 6 am at 'twelve'. Airline schedules and most businesses work on Western time but if you are making a casual appointment to meet a local, it may be worth confirming the time as 'English' rather than 'Tanzanian'.
