Is Tanzania A Safe Country

Tanzania is usually thought to be a safe place. As a general rule, you need to take the usual safety precautions and keep up with government travelalerts. Avoid going to places that aren't very crowded, like stretches of beach. Take a taxi at night in cities and places where tourists go.

Tanzania is generally safe, but it does not encourage temptation. Keep an eye on your possessions. Avoid walking at night in towns and cities; instead, take a taxi. Carry no cameras or large amounts of money, and be cautious of pickpockets and hawkers. Use hotel safe deposit boxes to keep valuables safe and get a receipt. Leave expensive jewelry at home.

Tanzania Travel Visa Requirements

All people who go to Tanzania need to have a passport that is valid for the whole time they are there. The Dar Es Salaam Port and Airport, the Kilimanjaro International Airport, and the Namanga entry point on the road border between Tanzania and Kenya are the three places in Tanzania where you can get a visa at the time of entry.

Some people don't need a Tanzania travelvisa, but it's best to check with your local Tanzanian Embassy.

Tanzania Travel And Health

Yellow fever vaccinations are required before you can enter Tanzania. Please be aware that you will need a yellow fever vaccination certificate when you enter Tanzania. We suggest that you take steps to protect yourself from malaria before you start your vacation. Malaria only happens in areas below 1,800 meters above sea level.

To avoid being bitten by a mosquito, you must also take the right steps. Contact your local travel clinic or doctor right away.

Expected Climate

Be prepared! From June to October, it is generally dry and hot with cool nights/mornings, with short rains from November to mid-December and long rains from March to May, but the seasons can vary.

You can pack your belongings based on the season in which you intend to travel.

Prepare Your Travel Clothings

Pack light, washable clothing, as well as a sweater for early morning wildlife game drives, as well as a sunhat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Long sleeves and light-colored trousers help keep insect bites at bay. Women's shorts are acceptable (but not too short). In the village and towns, women should carry a wrap to cover their legs because revealing clothing can cause offense. Bring your swimsuit if you're staying at a lodge.

Your Generosity Will Be Appreciated

Although not required, a tip for exceptional service (maximum 10%) will be appreciated, $20-$25 per day for driver or tour guide. Electricity is 230 volts, but power outages, surges, and troughs are common. Bring a flashlight or headlamp as well as a universal adaptor.
