Tanzania is divided into 26 regions (mkoa), twenty-one on the mainland and five on Zanzibar (three on Unguja, two on Pemba). Ninety-eight districts (wilaya), each with at least one council, have been created to further increase local authority; the councils are also known as local government authorities. Currently there are 114 councils operating in 99 districts; 22 are urban and 92 are rural. The 22 urban units are further classified as city councils (Dar es Salaam and Mwanza), municipal councils (Arusha, Dodoma, Iringa, Kilimanjaro, Mbeya, Morogoro, Shinyanga, Tabora, and Tanga) or town councils (the remaining eleven communities).
At 364,875 mi² (945,087 km²), Tanzania is the world's 31st-largest country (after Egypt). It is comparable in size to Nigeria, and is slightly bigger than double the size of the U.S. state of California.
Tanzania is mountainous in the north-east, where Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest peak, is situated. To the north and west are the Great Lakes of Lake Victoria (Africa's largest lake) and Lake Tanganyika (Africa's deepest lake, known for its unique species of fish). Central Tanzania comprises a large plateau, with plains and arable land. The eastern shore is hot and humid, with the island of Zanzibar lying just offshore.
Tanzania contains many large and ecologically significant wildlife parks, including the famous Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park in the north, and Selous Game Reserve and Mikumi National Park in the south. Gombe National Park in the west is known as the site of Dr. Jane Goodall's studies of chimpanzee behavior.

I stayed here for 2 days and though the staff was courteous and the place clean,they weren't very helpful......the room we were given was not as per the booking...when we raised the issue after much hassle at 1 o clock in the night we were accomodated in the said booked room only for the night.next day the confusion continued only to be shifted to a room where the fan practically didn't work..and despite noting that there indeed was a problem the staff didn't do aNYTHING ABOUT IT.my suggestion...don't go on net booking alone speak to them personally about what they are offering before you go to this place...otherwise its gonna be tough staying here in the sweltering heat...
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Princess Salme Inn was fullybooked when we arrived, though we had made a reservation on the internet. We got a room at Adams Inn which has the same owner as Princess Salme Inn. This was OK but nothing special. We had AC which was nice, and the breakfast was good.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Overall a decent place if you get the master room (private bath) unless you want to share bathroom facilities. The people is nice and helpful. The internet consist of a laptop connected via cable which is for communal use. TV is also small communal item. Breakfast is basic (toast, eggs, suasages) and fruit. There are nearby places where local breakfast can be had. Good access to the port, museum, sites and moving around. Does not look great from the outside or inside but clean and genuine attempt to make one confortable and be helpful. Stayed and extra night because of the warmth.
If fussy stay somewhere else but for simple, basic, cheap place this would do.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Really nice hotel, the rooms are very big and clean considering the price. Atmosphere convivial, the staff proposes some cheap trips (Prison island, spice tour...) . Internet is free, and the breakfast is huge!
