The people of Tanzania are called Tanzanians. Approximately 95 percent of Tanzanians may be roughly classified as Bantu peoples (including the Shambaa). Other major groups include the Nyamwezi, Chagga, Swahili, Maasai, Makonde, and Haya. The inhabitants of Zanzibar and Pemba are mostly descendants of mainland Africans or are of mixed African and Arab ancestry. Among non-Africans, there are about 70,000 Arabs, 40,000 Asians, and 10,000 Europeans in Tanzania.
