On Africa's southeast coast there were once two countries, Tanganyika and Zanzibar. Their names evoked a sense of mystery, intrigue and the exotic. In the 1960s the two became one and thus was born, Tanzania.
Boasting all of Africa's largest lake, Victoria, and its deepest, Tanganyika, Tanzania is also the home to Jane Goodall's legendary chimpanzee communities in Gombe Stream Park. Hemingway's snows were inspired by its outstanding Mount Kilimanjaro and the seat of human evolution was discovered there in Olduvai Gorge in the Ngorongoro by Mary & Louis Leakey. Bordering the equator is the searingly hot Serengeti, called “the place where the land runs on forever” by its tall, fierce tribal warriors, the Maasai.
WithTanzania we recall the Serengeti's fiery heat with searing yellows and the colors of molten lava–blistering oranges, flaming sunspots, torrid reds. Native motifs adorn its surface and the colors of Africa's wild lands are seen as scorched earth, charred wood and baked clay. With the dazzling brilliance of our silk charmeuse, Tanzania becomes a sensuous, glimmering stream of gleaming gold made especially for you.
