Flag of Tanzania

The United Republic of Tanzania is a country on the east coast of east Africa. It is bordered by Kenya and Uganda on the north, Rwanda, Burundi and the Democratic Republic of the Congo on the west, and Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique on the south. To the east, it borders the Indian Ocean. The country is named after Lake Tanganyika, which forms its western border.

Tanzania reached independence in 1961 under the name Tanganyika. In 1964, Tanganyika united with the island of Zanzibar, forming the United Republic of Tanganyika and Zanzibar, later renamed to the United Republic of Tanzania.

The story of the postage stamps and postal history of Tanzania begins with German East Africa, which was occupied by British forces during World War I. After the war, the territory was named Tanganyika and issued stamps under that name until after a union with Zanzibar in 1964.

The first issue of Tanzania proper was a set of four commemorative stamps marking the union, issued 7 July 1964 (Inscribed "UNITED REPUBLIC OF TANGANYIKA & ZANZIBAR").

The stamps of Tanzania were also valid in Kenya and Uganda (until 1976).
