Mbeya is a city located in southwest Tanzania. It is the capital of the surrounding rural Mbeya region. The city was founded as a gold mining town in the 1920s, following the gold rush of 1902. Mbeya and its surrounding districts were administered by the British until 1961 – the Mbeya Region was created in the same year. With an urban population of over 300000, Mbeya is the first large urban settlement encountered travelling to overland from the neighbouring nation of Zambia. It is a growing business centre for the southern regions and the neighbouring countries of Malawi, Zambia and Congo. Its suitable weather and fertile soil enable it to be the largest producer of maize, rice, bananas, beans, and potatoes in the entire country. It is also the biggest producer of high-value export and cash crops in Tanzania. It has a subtropical highland climate with humid summers and dry winters. Average temperatures in the city average between 9 degrees Celsius and 27 degrees Celsius.

As the prime city of the Southern Highland Regions, Mbeya is home to the Mbeya Referral Hospital which serves the entire region. It is also home to a number of companies and organisations with offices in the region, including the Bank of Tanzania, Mbeya Cement Company, Afri Bottlers Company Coca-Cola Company, SBC Tanzania Ltd and Pepsi Cola Company. It is also the hotbed of education in the region, with secondary schools and higher education institutions like Mbeya University of Science and Technology, Saint Augustine University of Tanzania and a campus of Mzumbe University. Mbeya is served by the Mbeya Railway Station, and the Songwe airport connects it to the rest of Tanzania. Mbeya is also a touristic destination thanks to the presence of mountain reserves and wildlife. The area around Mbeya has been called the “Scotland of Africa”. In 2005 a completely new species of large monkeys, the Kipunji, was discovered in the southern highlands southwest of Mbeya. Some other notable tourist locations include Kitulo National Park, Ruaha National Park, Lake Nyasa, Mbozi meteorite and the Mwalolo Waterfalls.
The city is positioned as a suitable location for higher education.
