Tanganyika Nyanza's LocationNyanja ya Tanganyika is still located in the same place in Tanganyika. The lake did not move to Tanzania. In the 1960's, the people of Tanganyika combined their government with the government of a group of islands off Tanganyika's east coast, the Zanzibar islands. Tanganyika is the mainland and Zanzibar is the group of islands. Politically together they are now called Tan-zan-ia (United Republic of Tanzania), even though Zanzibar maintains what it officially calls, “a revolutionary government.” All of the mainland of Tanzania was and still is Tanganyika; therefore Great Lake Tanganyika is still located in Tanganyika.*
Tanganyika, Land and Lake, Are Still Located In PuntTanganyika, despite name changes, is still part of the vast area in Eastern Central Africa known earlier as Punt, the cradle, origin, birthplace home of current-day humans.
Uniquely Interesting FactsAlthough Tanganyika lake in Africa is a little over the line to the south, it is near enough to be the earthly version of the great lake at the horn-point of the northern pole constellation. (1) This means the womb of Africa sends forth life-giving waters through the oval opening of Tanganyika, the left thigh of the water cow as one of the sources of the Hapy River. In the book, “Across Africa,” published in 1877, Verney Lovett Cameron states, “The Tanganyika, Nyassa, and Albert Nyanza, in my opinion, are in the line of a great flaw in some ancient upheaval. (2) These three lakes, therefore, seem to lie in an interrupted fissure on the outside of one in a series of concentric upheavals.”
Victoria Nyanza owes its existence to some other cause, while of the many lakes to the westward of this line, some are apparently formed by rivers dammed back by ranges of hills at the edges of table-lands, while others are simply lacustrine expansions of varying size of the rivers themselves. (3) In 1881, after the first Europeans finally discovered what Africans already knew, Livingstone and Staney state, “On the outside of Polungo Island, [in the lake called Tanganyika Nyanza], were enormous masses, scattered and piled in the most fantastic manner, vast overhanging blocks, rocking-stones, obelisks, pyramids, and every form imaginable.” (4)

Lost Zanzibar History Lost*Zanzibar still calls itself Zanzibar so why wouldn't Tanganyika still call itself Tanganyika?
On a different note, Zanzibar is delusional. They claim the first permanent residence on Zanzibar was established in 1,000 A.D. This is the cutoff history of their beginnings as stated on the Zanzibar official government website.
What are the chances Eastern Africans from south to north after 400,000 years of existence in the continuous act of spreading themselves around the world and taking up permanent residency in those places, just skipped over Zanzibar, the largest of the island group that is right next door to them before they could reach southern Asia, India, Indonesia, etc.? This goes against the natural human migratory pattern, nature and habit. 1,000 A.D. is ridiculous when even the Gullah people of South Carolina know that their history is at least 10,000 years old. Are we to just believe Zanzibar, the largest of the island group, is the exception to the rule? For far longer than before 1,000 A.D., Africans have been permanently inhabiting Madagascar, Mauritius, Australia, New Zealand, India, Persia, Arabia, Europe, Indonesian Islands, Malaysian Islands, Caribbean Islands, Easter Island, Pacific Islands, South America and North America. Come on now Zanzibar!
What is really going on in the psyche of the Zanzibari? Is it the Arab Asian genetic cultural confusion mix that has them in disconnected conflict with the much deeper extent of their history? You don't have be a historian filled with dates and facts of history to know the history of Zanzibar begins before 1,000 A.D.
How is it that the Zanzibar Islands have an overwhelmingly majority population who are directly descended from East Africa and East African cultural heritage and who mainly speak Kiswahili, that these same people, straight out of the heart of the Holy Land, can get their logic to convince them to become and remain Sunni Muslims? This answers the questions of history lost, psyche lost and paradise lost. The revolution Zanzibar is talking about is de-evolutionary thinking because of the distance they have to decided to maintain from their roots.
