Miss Tanzania is Tanzania's National beauty pageant. The winner goes to represent the country in the Miss World Contest. Miss Tanzania is not related to the previous Miss Universe Tanzania contest.

The reigning Miss Tanzania is Lilian Kamazima, she will represent her country in Miss World 2015.


Miss Tanzania started in the 1967 and the participants for the most part were from Dar es Salaam, the winners were however not sent to compete internationally. In 1968, the government banned beauty contests in the country after advice from the ruling political party's youth league citing it was not consistent with Tanzanian culture.

In 1994 when beauty contests were allowed, the country had its first Miss Tanzania who competed in the Miss World.

Tanzania ended its decade-long drought of shining in international beauty contests in Miss World 2005, when Nancy Sumari was among the top 6 finalists and also crowned Miss World Africa.
