  1. Germany began cementing its hold over what is now known as Tanzania in the 1880’s, eventually forming German East Africa in 1891. By this point Britain had established a protectorate over Zanzibar. The Portuguese had arrived in the 16th century, but only gained control of the coast, and were eventually displaced by Omani Arabs in the 18th century.
