Iringa is a small city with a population of 115,000 (compared to Dar es Salaam’s four million), located on the TanZam highway—the main highway leading from Dar es Salaam to Zambia—around 450km inland from Dar es Salaam and 400 km from the border with Zambia at the junction to Ruaha National Park. Iringa was built during the 1890s by the German Army as a defensive base to be used against the Hehe uprising led by Chief Mkwawa. The name Iringa is derived from the Hehe word Lilinga, meaning fort, as the fortress and headquarters of Chief Mkwawa was situated in the nearby village of Kalenga.
