Ambassador Masima is the first Tanzanian resident ambassador to Israel. He presented his diplomatic credential to President Reuven Rivlin at a moving ceremony on 15 June 2017 in a style ever witness in the diplomatic community. He surprised President Rivlin when he stood up, put his hand in his pocket and withdrew a cream satin skullcap, which he put on his head and proceeded to recite in Hebrew the sheheheyanu prayer of thanks for reaching this day. Rivlin put his hand in his own pocket and took out a black kippa to cover his head. After completing the verse, Masima assured Rivlin of the solidarity with Israel of the government and people of Tanzania.
Until the arrival of Ambassador Masima, the Tanzanian delegation was headed by the Honorary Consul of Tanzania in Israel, Kasbian Nuriel Chirich, who worked intensively to increase cooperation between the two countries in all fields.
The secret of Tanzania’s magic lies in the fact that it is a paradise for nature lovers. Located in East Africa, it boasts 16 National Parks, 31 Game Reserves, 44 Game Controlled Areas, 4 Ramsar Sites, 33 Wildlife Management Areas.
The country features a breathtaking array of landscapes, including volcanoes and snow-capped mountains, lakes, savannahs, marshlands, rainforests, and more. Some of the world’s largest lakes, including Lake Victoria, Lake Tanganyika, and Lake Nyasa, are located within Tanzania’s 945,087 square kilometers. It is not a coincidence that Tanzania has become one of the most popular destinations for Israelis traveling to Africa. It has a unique culture, natural riches, beautiful and exciting nature reserves, and the islands of Zanzibar.
