Travel Advice

Tanzania

If you have never been to Tanzania before, here are our top tips on how to make sure your trip is safe, hasslefree, inspiring and unforgettable. We share our experiences in more detail in our news posts, so please make sure you read them regularly to pick up our latest advice.

Your health and safety is our prioirty - COVID19 update

Following the outbreak of COVID-19 in early 2020, our thoughts go out to all of you who have been affected by this global pandemic. The tourism industry has been heavily affected worldwide, however, in July the World Travel and Tourism Council endorsed Tanzania as ‘safe for tourists to travel to’ and are now welcoming visitors again from all over the world. We, along with all our travel partners across Tanzania have put in place policies and the necessary procedures to keep you safe and sound when you next visit.

We advise you to check the website of the Tanzania Tourism Board and also the Government of your our own country for the latest guidance on travel to and from Tanzania.

Vaccinations: We recommend that you visit a health professional at least 4 to 6 weeks before your trip to check whether you need any vaccinations and discuss preventive measures. If you are travelling directly from Europe, the USA or China, no vaccinations are currently required by law to enter Tanzania., however some are recommended depending on where you will be staying in Tanzania. Also if you are arriving from a country where yellow fever is present, you will need to provide a certificate showing that you gave been inoculated.

Choose the right experience for you!

Tanzania can offer wildlife safaris, Mount Kilimanjaro climbs, cultural heritage sites, golden beaches and water-based activities to both thrill and excite! It is important to choose an experience that suits your interests, budget, time, level of fitness and also the weather at the time you plan to visit.  Please contact us for any local advice and guidance before you travel.

Plan ahead but remain flexible!

Sometimes things happen that you did not plan for – that’s one of the challenges when travelling through Africa! Please don’t worry as there are always alternatives, staying flexible and open-minded will ensure that you continue to enjoy your trip. Adaptability is what we do best, and you can always place your trust in us!

Visa's, Money & Essentials Items to Pack

  • A valid passport and visa are required to enter Tanzania. Please check with your local Tanzanian Embassy for the latest information on visa requirements
  • The local currency is the Tanzanian shilling (Tsh). It is best to carry a small amount of shillings in your pocket for drinks, tips etc. Major currencies (US Dollar, English Pound and the Euro) are easily changed in large towns, with US Dollars being the preferred choice. Credit cards are accepted only at major lodges, hotels, and travel agents. ATM’s are available in banks around the country which allow you to withdraw cash from VISA and/or MasterCard accounts; however, there are daily limits for withdrawals (e.g. USD$200) and fixed transaction costs are applied, so it is more cost-effective to withdraw higher amounts.
  • Tanzania is a large country. It can be hot at the coast and cold in the Ngorongoro highlands – you’ll need to bring clothing for all weather if you are travelling around. What you bring depends a lot on what you are planning to do – climbing Kilimanjaro obviously require extra equipment! The Swahili coast can be hot and humid and there will be mosquitoes, so pack long trousers and sleeves plus mosquito repellent! For hiking, bring layers and comfortable hiking boots. For the beach, bring a sarong not a beach towel, to blend in with the locals! You will need a hat, sunglasses and suncream; and we also recommend that you bring some rich moisturiser – the air in places can be very drying!
