It’s Latitude and Longitude reading of 6° 00′ South and 35° 00′ East. The standard time of Tanzania runs three hours ahead of the Greenwich Mean Time because of its location at a particular latitude and longitude.
Latitude and Longitude of Tanzania have a great effect on its climate also. In the coastal area of the country tropical climate is noticed while in the mountainous region temperature weather can be seen.
Near the coastal area though the climate is very hot and has high humidity level, yet it is tempered by the breeze coming from the sea. But in the highland areas that are situated within the land area, weather is very dry. Tanzania gets a moderate amount of rainfall as well.
