The United Republic of Tanzania is in East Africa, bordered by Kenya and Uganda to the north; Rwanda, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west; and Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique to the south. The country's eastern border is formed by the Indian Ocean. Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest mountain, is in Tanzania. The capital of Tanzania is Dodoma. Its main commercial city is Dar es Salaam, which is also the major seaport for Tanzania and its landlocked neighbours. Agriculture accounts for more than half of the GDP, provides around 75% of exports and employs approximately 75% of the workforce. Tanzania has many natural resources including minerals such as gold, diamonds, coal, iron, uranium and nickel and Tanzanite – a precious gemstone found only in Tanzania.

We established our business presence in Tanzania in September 2011, with the acquisition of BP's operations. We now operate a network of 47 retail sites and are present at 8 airports. Our B2B activities focus on providing fuels, lubricants and other oil products to key clients in Tanzania’s burgeoning mining and transportation sectors. Mining is a key industry in Tanzania because the country has an abundance of natural resources including minerals such as gold, diamonds, coal, iron, uranium and nickel.
The strength of our network provided us with a new retail opportunity in Tanzania in 2015. DHL Express, the world’s leading international express services provider, have signed a retail partnership with Puma Energy, to provide their customers with access to their global express services through our service stations. The service was piloted in 16 service stations in Dar es Salaam, with a view to being rolled out across all Puma Energy service stations in Tanzania in 2016.
We are delivering faster and more efficient bunkering services for oil and gas companies operating offshore from Tanzania.
We are also building our market share in the aviation sector, now providing jet fuel and avgas at eight of the country’s airports.

Tanzania is home to the famous Serengeti, where you can witness the great annual migration of millions of wildebeest. It also has some of the best beaches on earth in the Zanzibar archipelago. And of course there is Mount Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. Fancy a fantastic Tanzanian adventure? Fill up at a Puma Energy service station in Dar es Salaam and travel to see the flamingos on Lake Magadi. And when it’s time to eat try this for a local treat: pilau rice and Konyagi white rum!
