Zaramo is a Niger–Congo language, formerly the primary tongue of the Zaramo people of eastern Tanzania. Today there are very few speakers, as the Zaramo population mainly use Swahili instead. The language is also known as Zalamo, Kizaramo, Dzalamo, Zaramu, Saramo or Myagatwa.

The New Testament was published in the language in 1975.
