Regions of Tanzania
Regions of Tanzania

Tanzania is divided into thirty-one regions or mikoa.[1]


In 1975, Tanzania had 25 regions. In the 1970s, the name of the Ziwa Magharibi Region (West Lake Region) changed to Kagera Region. In 2002, Manyara Region was created out of part of Arusha Region.[1] In 2012, four regions were created: Geita, Katavi, Njombe, and Simiyu.[2] In 2016, Songwe Region was created from the western part of Mbeya Region.[3][4]
