Tanzania’s not short on mountains either. The striking and snow-capped Mt Kilimanjaro is Africa’s tallest at 5,895m (19,341ft) and climbing it is an unforgettable experience. Its slightly smaller sister Mt Meru is arguably even prettier, and a quicker climb.

1. Security During Your Safari

Tanzania is the most peaceful country in East Africa and Africa. While Tanzania police forces work hard to make sure that the country is at peace all the time

Most places have police posts close by and especially all major tourist places and if any problem arises there is immediate coordination to solve it.

However, as with any other town, walking alone at night is not advisable, and it is preferable to use taxis which are available at most hotels. Do not leave cash or valuables in your hotel room and use a safe deposit box. Make use of a safe deposit box to keep your belongings safe, and do not leave anything of value lying around in your hotel room.

2. Tanzania Climate

There are two seasons of rain in Tanzania: the long rainy period (monsoon) which runs from late March until June and a short rainy period, which runs from November until mid-January. The long rains fall in heavy downpours, often accompanied by violent storms. The short rains tend to be much less severe.

3. Your Health Is Vital

Before coming to Tanzania you will have to take few health precautions. Because Tanzania is in the tropical environments which favour growth of different bacteria, flora and fauna that most visitors are accustomed to.

4. Recommended Immunisations:

The yellow-fever vaccination is no longer officially required when entering Tanzania, yet because the disease is endemic many doctors will recommend it as a precaution. Other vaccinations that might be considered before you travel include

• Hepatitis A – You can get Hepatitis A through contaminated food or water in Tanzania, regardless of where you are eating or staying.

• Typhoid – You can get Typhoid through contaminated food or water in Tanzania, especially if you are visiting smaller cities or rural areas.

Travelers travelling from Tanzania to South Africa are required to have a Yellow Fever vaccination certificate upon entry to South Africa.

Please check with your local travel clinic for the latest recommendations.

5. Malaria:

If you are coming to Tanzania without a vaccination card, make sure you take precaution against mosquito bites.

Make sure that before you travel you visit your doctor to get ant-malaria tablets. Also you can buy mosquito sprays. All the accommodation places now days have mosquito nets fixed to your beds and the rooms are sprayed with mosquito repellents too. And just for your information malaria transmitting mosquitos only bites at late nights so its likely that you won't be exposed if all the precautions are taken care of.

6. Food and Water:

While on trip in Tanzania make sure that you avoid taking food on streets because it’s likely that they were not prepared in a hygienic way.

Mainly each safaris organizer will make sure that both dietary requirements are taken care during your trip

7. Currency

Credit cards are only accepted by the major airline companies and by most of the bigger hotels and lodges. Do not rely on credit cards as a source of cash while in Tanzania. In some cases you need to take sufficient cash to support you. While your safari organizer works hard to make sure that your trip is as safe as possible exposing lots of money on streets or congested areas may attract opportunists, so don’t do it!

The Tanzanian Shilling is the local currency, but travellers checks and cash in US$ are recommended. The current exchange rate is approximately Tsh 2100 = US$ 1. It is possible to change foreign currency at any Bureaux de Chance, which generally gives better rates than hotels and most banks.

8. Language

Tanzania The official languages are Ki-Swahili and English. There are more than 120 tribal vernaculars.

9. Visa and entry requirements

Visas are required by most visitors to Tanzania. Visas are available at your local Tanzanian Embassy. Costs vary from country to country. Visas are valid for 3 months.

10. Culture of local people

Tanzania is home to more than 120 different ethnic groups and cultures. In fact the country is an inherently peaceful place and embraces its multicultural heritage, which adds to its broad appeal..

Usually you will spend your holiday in Tourist destinations such as Game parks. Around these game parks are villages which local people reside. Example at slopes of Kilimanjaro is Chagga tribe, Ngorongoro conservation area are Masai poeple. So your destination guide will give you briefing on what to do and how to behave when you meet with local people. These helps to create love, trust and harmony with local people.

11. The Green Season

One of the top Tanzania travel tips to save some money is to look at travelling in the off-peak seasons (November & February to May).

You’ll get the same excellent standard of guiding and the same fabulous camps both for much less and the country looks beautiful

In fact, this is one of our favorite seasons to travel even if you don’t want to save any money
