The United Republic of Tanzania (the largest country in East Africa, including the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba) came into existence in 1964, 3 years after the initial independence from Britain. Although it shares many characteristics with its northern neighbour (especially the Swahili culture and language) it has developed along more socialist lines than has Kenya, and has not been as receptive toward foreign investment.  Possibly for this reason Tanzania has not had the growth in industry that Kenya has enjoyed and the casual visitor will notice many differences of this nature between the two countries.  However, Tanzania's gameparks are, if anything, even better known than those of Kenya. The Serengeti National Park and neighbouring Ngorongoro Conversation Area are truly world renowned, as is Africa's highest peak Mount Kilimanjaro.  All of these highlights are within easy reach of Nairobi, attracting many tourists and earning Tanzania much needed foreign exchange.
