    General Information

    Climate

    • Tanzania is a year-round destination with the weather varying by location, altitude and season. Picking the ‘best time’ will depend on your interests, where you are travelling to and for what purpose. Visiting the Serengeti is popular in June and July to see migrating wildebeest and in January and February to see calving.
    • The approximate seasons are January to February, short dry season; March to May, long wet season; June to October, long dry season and November to December, short wet season. During the rainy seasons, the landscape is lush and green with fewer tourists around.

    Language & Currency

    • Kiswahili and English are the official languages of Tanzania. Kiswahili is spoken by most Tanzanians, with English fluency varying outside of major towns and tourist areas. There are over 100 languages spoken throughout Tanzania, making it the most linguistically diverse country in East Africa.
    • The local currency is the Tanzanian shilling, which divides into 100 senti. US dollars are often accepted; local currency is best for tipping and small purchases. Larger hotels in tourist areas may accept credit cards; however, surcharges are commonplace. Do not rely on using credit cards other than as a back-up. Remote lodges often accept cash only. Access to cash machines is limited. Exchanging currency can be done in banks and foreign exchange bureaus. 

    Visa & Access

    • Many foreign nationals will require a visa for entry to Tanzania. Please check with your local Tanzanian Embassy or our travel team for further information. The Tanzania Immigration Department has introduced an online ‘e-visa’ application system for obtaining visas in advance of travel.
    • Tanzania has several international and regional airports. The main airports are Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam (DAR), Kilimanjaro International Airport in Kilimanjaro (JRO) and Abeid Amani Karume International Airport in Zanzibar (ZNZ).

    Health

    • At least 6-8 weeks before departure, please visit your local health care provider or travel clinic for any vaccination requirements and to discuss any other potential health risks, such as malaria (where applicable). All travellers should ensure they have a valid travel insurance policy in place.

    For any further questions on Tanzania or your holiday, contact our friendly travel team who will assist you with any information you require.
