About German East Africa

also known as: Deutsch-Ostafrika de

German East Africa was a German colony in the African Great Lakes region, which included what are now Burundi, Kenya, Mozambique, Rwanda and Tanganyika (the mainland part of present Tanzania).

The Treaty of Versailles broke up the colony, giving the north-western area to Belgium as Ruanda-Urundi, the small Kionga Triangle south of the Rovuma River to Portugal to become part of Mozambique, and the remainder to Britain, which named it Tanganyika.
