Tanzania is a wonderful, safe and stable country with very friendly and relaxed people. Tanzania has an accessible culture, the population is known as one of the friendliest in Africa. The scents, the colors, the starry sky, the views and the skies will make your journey unforgettable.

Tanzania has the most game per km2 in all of Africa. You can make unforgettable safaris by jeep, on foot, by boat, canoe or horse. 40% of the country consists of beautiful national parks, including Serengeti National Park. World famous for the great migration, the annual migration of millions of animals, such as wildebeest and zebras. This is one of the greatest natural wonders in the world. And the Ngorongoro Crater, UNESCO World Heritage, the largest caldera in the world with its many animals, including the Big Five (elephant, lion, rhinoceros, leopard and buffalo). And don’t forget Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa, and Mount Meru. A great challenge to climb one of these two.

In addition to the wildlife, you can also relax on the paradisiacal white beaches of Zanzibar. You can dive and snorkel, visit Stone Town or participate in a spice tour. Tanzania, the land of the Maasai, is a country with unprecedented opportunities and a rich culture. It’s very hard not to get excited!

What you need to know before traveling to Tanzania?

Visa Tanzania:

To travel to Tanzania you need a visa, which you can order online. After booking you will receive a manual from us for applying for an E-visa. It is also possible to buy a visa at the Tanzanian border after you land. When buying at the border you have a chance that there will be a long queue, keep this in mind. The cost for a visa is $50.

Passport requirements:

Passport must be valid for at least six months after returning to the home country

Vaccinations Tanzania:

The following vaccinations are recommended:

  • malaria pills
  • Yellow fever
  • Stamp in the vaccination passport ‘Cholera not indicated’
Recommended vaccinations Tanzania:
  • DTP
  • Hepatitis A

Always contact the GGD for the most up-to-date information.

Malaria in Tanzania:

You cannot vaccinate against malaria. Malaria tablets are advised. You can discuss this with a travel medicine doctor. Malaria is an infectious disease caused by malaria parasites that enter the body through a mosquito bite. The parasites first multiply in the liver and then in the red blood cells. Symptoms: chills, followed by fever. Usually preceded by a flu-like feeling. To protect yourself against mosquito bites, you can bring anti-mosquito spray with DEET and cover your body well in the evenings.

Travel insurance Tanzania:

We require our customers to take out good travel insurance. Travel insurance not only covers medical costs, but also covers damage, theft or loss of luggage, money and goods or additional medical expenses. Costs for an emergency evacuation to the home country are also covered by travel insurance. Information about this can be obtained from an insurance company. As a tour operator, Bright Tanzania is in no way liable for costs arising from the above list.

Luggage during the safari (in the jeep):

Safari jeeps are mainly focused on passenger comfort. The space behind the seats for luggage is therefore limited. This is especially true when you share one jeep with four or more people. In that case we recommend flexible travel bags of a maximum of 15 to 20 kilos – this makes everything fit a lot easier in the luggage compartment of the safari jeep. Because the more people share a jeep, the more limited the space for luggage is.

Clothing on vacation:

Because you stay at different heights during your trip, so closer to the mountains or lower towards the coast, the temperatures differ. Given the different seasons, it is good to take into account that it can be chilly in the mornings and evenings. Because of the religion and culture, Tanzanians generally cover themselves with clothes. You don’t have to take this into account on safari or on the beach. If you come among the local population, it is appropriate to cover your body more, especially shoulders and thighs. Then be restrained with short skirts and shorts. This shows respect for the local population.

Security in Tanzania:

Tanzania is one of the safest African countries, you don’t have to worry. We strongly recommend that you explore the city or a market with a guide, both during the day and in the evening. They know their way around, know the country, speak the language and can help you buy souvenirs or other things. We do not recommend going out alone at night. Everywhere you go on holiday you have to be alert, after all you are a tourist, that is not the case in the big cities of Tanzania.
