Dodoma - Tanzania

Close to Tanzania’s geographic centre lise its capital city, Dodoma. In 1973 it was decided that Dodoma would become Tanzania’s new capital, due to its central location, pleasant climate and room for expansion.It was only recently, though, that the government departments have been making the move to Dodoma. This has seen an increase in infrastructural and other developments, including frequency of flights, to the city.

It has a large university population and has been growing a lot, but it still has a small-town feeling.

The famous landmark in Dodoma, Lion Rock, resembles the pride rock from the movie the Lion King with a bit of imagination and can be climbed to enjoy the panoramic views of the town.

Tanzania's burgeoning winelands are situated around Dodoma, with some if the wines acheving excellent ratings.
