Mbeya Town

Mbeya Town: Surrounded by mountains in southwest Tanzania, Mbeya Region spans 62,420 square kilometers (24,100 sq. mi) and is made up of 8 districts.  The capital of the region is Mbeya City and local tribes for the Mbeya region include: Nyakyusa, Ndali, Nyiha, Nyamwanga, Bungu and Safwa. Colloquial Swahili is the main language and English is widely taught in the schools.

Following the 1905 gold rush, Mbeya was founded as a gold mining town in the 1920s. The TAZARA railway later attracted farming migrants and small entrepreneurs to the area. Mbeya and its district was administered by the British until 1961.

The city is well connected with an all-weather road that forms part of the “Great North Road” running from Cape Town to Alexandria.  Average highs and lows during August are 22/9 Celsius and 72/48 Fahrenheit. Mbeya City is a growing metropolis and business centre for the southern regions and the neighbouring countries of Malawi, Zambia and Congo. The economy relies heavily on agriculture, but also depends on mining, trade, and tourism as well.
