Religion & Cultural Etiquette
What are the religions that I should be aware of in Tanzania?
Tanzania’s culture is a mix of African, Arab, European and Indian influences. There are 120 African tribal groups, and the largest group is of Bantu origin. The main religions are Islam, Christian and indigenous beliefs. The island of Zanzibar is predominantly Muslim. Please be mindful that you are travelling to a different country with strong religious customs so it is advisable to dress appropriately, especially in city areas or areas away from tourist areas.
