History and culture

Tanzania cradles 120 ethnic groups, inclusive of people who have migrated from other parts of Africa and traders from afar, who have established their roots into the country from as early as the 8th century. The country has been shifted through the hands of many, starting with the Portugese after the arrival of Vasco de gama, followed by the Germans, and then the British. In 1961, the lands breathed independence. Tanzania was formed in 1964 and has been under the rule of the same political party ever since. The country has a vast and vibrant diversity, but with no ethnic tensions, thus making it a paradigm for harmonious existence. Swahili is a language commonly used across the country. Some of the well acquainted tribes are the Hadzabe tribe, Maasai tribe, Chagga tribe and the Sukuma tribe.

Before you go - Visa and Vaccinations+ -

Citizens of most countries require a Visa to enter Tanzania. This can be easily obtained on arrival at the country’s international airports (Kilimanjaro International Airport, Julius Nyerere International Airport and Kisuani International Airport). It is essential that you have a clean and recent US dollar bills to pay for the Visa. Bills that are damaged with tears and holes, or bills dated prior to 2006, may be rejected by customs. Have all your travel documents and confirmations at hand, this will keep the process smooth and quick.

In Tanzania, tourist visas may be issued as single or multiple entry permits and are valid for a maximum period of three or six months respectively. As with short-term visit visas in many destinations, these time limits are the maximum period for visas may be granted but do not necessarily reflect the grant that will be issued.

A tourist Visa costs about 50USD per person for citizens of most countries, However, citizens of US and Canada are charged 100USD per person for the same.

The table below sums it all up for you -


Vaccinations -
All travellers visiting Tanzania must have a valid Yellow Fever Immunization card before their arrival. In case you have skipped getting this immunization, you will have to take it at the airport.

Weather And When To Go+ -

A lot depends on whether the weather plays by your side. Your exotic Safari in Tanzania can be reduced to closed roads, cancelled tours and heaving sighs of disappointment. Although the climate is becoming notoriously unpredictable, we have drawn out rough predictions from climate charts and personal experiences. Your best shot at clear skies and pleasant sunshine is between the months of June to October. Steer clear of plans between March to May as they are rich with possibilities of tropical downpours and are hence termed as the long rains period. November to December sees another rainy phase while January and February sees a brief dry period.

The best time to plan your adventure in Tanzania-



The best time to visit Tanzania varies with personal preference and prioritization of personal criteria. A few factors that can help you strike the right window on your calendar are scripted here you.

The dry season holds the obvious advantage of clear weather and higher chances of spotting wildlife, as the animals gather around rivers and waterholes.

Must See Spots in Tanzania+ -

With over 15 national parks, Tanzania has about 30% of its area declared as protected lands. Planning your adventure in the most renowned parks that offer a variety of experiences is definitely the way to go. Here are a few we suggest.

Serengeti NP:

Serengeti National Park, in northern Tanzania, is known for its massive annual migration of wildebeest and zebra. Seeking new pasture, the herds move north from their breeding grounds in the grassy southern plains. Many cross the marshy western corridor’s crocodile-infested Grumeti River. Others veer northeast to the Lobo Hills, home to black eagles. Apart from being the most celebrated national park in the world, the Serengeti is known for endless grasslands that stretch as far as the eye can see and merge into the horizon.

Arusha NP:

Arusha National Park covers Mount Meru, a prominent volcano with an elevation of 4566 m, in the Arusha Region of north eastern Tanzania. The park is small but varied with spectacular landscapes in three distinct areas. In the west, the Meru Crater funnels the Jekukumia River; the peak of Mount Meru lies on its rim. Ngurdoto Crater in the south-east is grassland. The shallow alkaline Momella Lakes in the north-east have varying algal colours and are known for their wading birds. Despite it’s small area of 137Km², it offers plenty of wildlife game.

Tarangire NP:

The Tarangire National Park is the 6th largest park in Tanzania and is extremely famous for its diverse landscape and nine different vegetation zones. The highlight of the vegetation is the ancient and gigantic Baobab trees, which make even animals like the giraffe look tiny. The 3,000 Sq Kms park gets its name from the Tarangire river that flows through it. The river attracts a lot of diverse animals and you should be able to spot a lot of elephants, giraffe, lions, antelopes and zebra. If it’s your lucky day, you might be able to spot the tree climbing python and the long necked Gerek. The Tarangire National Park has the highest concentration of elephants, which offers a unique chance for you to observe interactions between elephant families.

Lake Manyara NP:

This national park is one of Africa’s smaller and underrated parks. Lake Manyara National Park is a Tanzanian national park located both in Arusha Region and Manyara Region, Tanzania. During the wet season flamingos that inhabit the edges of the lake, thus painting the shoreline pink. Apart from normal wildlife of elephants, giraffe, hippos, buffaloes, zebras and gazelles, the real spectacle of Manyara NP is the tree climbing lions.

Selous Game Reserve :

Selous national park is the biggest park in the southern region of Tanzania. Covering about 50,000 Km2 it has year round wildlife action from some of the typical animals like African bush elephants, black rhinos, hippopotamus, lions, East African wild dogs, Cape buffaloes, Masai giraffes, Plains zebras, and crocodiles can be found in this park in larger numbers than in any other African game reserve or national park. What stands out in the Selous game reserve is the option to do a walking safari or a boat safari in the Rufiji river. The closest airport to this park is the Dar es Salaam airport, from which you can reach the park by rail or road.

Mikumi National Park:

The Mikumi National Park is the next best park in the southern region which offers wildlife game throughout the year. Established in 1964, it covers an area of 3,230 km² and is the fourth largest in the country. The landscape of Mikumi is often compared to that of the Serengeti. The diverse wildlife in this park includes elephants, zebras, impala, eland, kudu, black antelope, baboons, wildebeests, buffaloes and lions. The park is extremely accessible from Dar es Salaam by a surfaced road.

Why Visit Tanzania?+ -

Unlike other African countries like Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda, Tanzania offers multiple dimensions to your African adventure and also holds relatively higher concentrations of wildlife in store for you.

The Zanzibar archipelago is one such diverse dimension that Tanzania offers. Snuggle by these white sand beaches, pamper yourself in the soothing sheets of blue and stroll by the winding alleys of the simple, yet ravishing old city of Stone town.

A Safari in Tanzania is also the hotspot to quench your adrenaline cravings, as it serves peace lovers and thrill seekers alike. You get to relish the sweeping plains on foot, drive into it, soar above it, trot into it on horseback, row down the river or glide in a hot air balloon in the waking hour of dawn. Other tempting adventures to chase in the country, are scaling the sought after Kilimanjaro peak or delving into the Indian ocean. The coastline brings another horde of excitements like snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, sunset cruises and more. Pounce on your chance to strike off many sought after adventures from your bucket list.

Tanzania lets you breathe in its unrestrained freedom and revel in its pure authenticity. A Safari in Tanzania is definitely something to cherish dearly for a lifetime. Miss out on nothing because Tanzania offers a panorama of experiences for you to savour. Grab a flawless package and make it yours, because once the country casts its spell on you, it holds you in its net of wonder forever.

Currency and Money+ -

The official local currency in Tanzania is the Tanzanian Shilling. However, US dollars are accepted almost everywhere for and are even the preferred currency for transactions over 100USD. Just as in the case of obtaining your visa, currency bills that are dated post 2006 in an undamaged condition are recommended.

Visa and Mastercard facilities are in their infancy and will only be available at high-end stores and hotels. Expect for the commission to be added to your bill. You can also use Visa and Mastercard in many ATMs. However, Tanzanian ATMs only dispense Tanzanian shillings and $300 equals a wad that barely fits in your pocket. It’s also possible to purchase US dollars with a credit card, but expect a fee of 4 to 5%.
