Tanzania, located in east Africa, is bordered by Kenya, Uganda, Mozambique and the Indian Ocean with a total land area of 945,000 sq. km (including Mafia, Pemba and Zanzibar). The terrain consists of lowland plains along the coast, a central plateau (1000-1500 m) and highlands over 2000 m in the north and south. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, lies in north-eastern Tanzania with an altitude of 5895 m. Lakes Tanganyika and Victoria lie partially within Tanzania, along the western and northern borders respectively.
