Tanzania Travel Tip

  • Visas are necessary

If you are from the EU, the US, or Canada, you will need a visa to visit Tanzania. You can get a visa on the spot, but it is much easier to apply ahead of time. It just takes a few minutes, and you’ll get your visa in the mail within a few days. Visas can be applied for online here.

Tanzania requires a $50 visa. You will also need to show that you have a return ticket home and a passport that is valid for the next six months. If you want to return to Tanzania, you will need a new visa, which costs $100. There are also more expensive special visas available for volunteering. So, if you’re coming here to volunteer, you can inquire as to the visa you should apply for from the people who are organizing it.


  • Climate can be precarious

It can get very chilly. That’s right, it astounded me in England, and it continues to amaze me in the heart of Africa. It isn’t because it is cold everywhere; rather, it is because you go to higher elevations, such as around Mount Kilimanjaro or the Ngorongoro Crater. It can get really cold there. In general, I was cold in Ngorongoro while we were enjoying the great outdoors. As a result, bring a hat and possibly some warmer clothing. That is something I would like to know before visiting Tanzania.

Whatever the case may be, Tanzania’s climate is very good. There’s just something you should be aware of in general. Tanzania experiences a dry and windy season. Between June and October, there is almost no rain. That particular item is extremely useful for safari. Since there is a scarcity of water, animals congregate in specific areas where there is water.


  • You should tip your guide or driver

In addition, there is a good reason for this. When you go on safari or some other excursion, your guide will accompany you for the whole day, or even a few days. They don’t seem to be paid. If they do, it will be nothing short of a disaster. Furthermore, since it is a part-time job for them, you should pay them a bonus. In general, they learn a great deal about how to detect these animals, which takes time and effort.

Apart from that, the majority of the drivers and aides are well-prepared and educated. As a result, they deserve more money for their services because they don’t get nearly as much otherwise.


  • Not all the safari parks have all Animals

So you’ve decided to go on safari, right? This is fantastic. Have you thought about what kinds of animals you’d like to see in the wild? Isn’t that correct? Take a look at the larger picture, all things considered. Have you ever wanted to see a lion? Is it a cheetah? Rhinoceros? Or, on the other hand, anything completely different? In fact, not all of the animals can be found in any safari park. Ngorongoro, for example, is a fantastic place to see lions. Recognizing a cheetah or rhino, on the other hand, is extremely difficult.

A few rhinos can be found in the Serengeti. In addition, Tarangire has a plethora of creatures to explore. In addition, if you want to see a cheetah or a panther, you’ll have to return to Serengeti. So, before you go to Tanzania, think about which animals you’d like to see the most, and then see if you can find them in your park.





  • Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro isn’t just about as simple as you would might suspect

Many travelers’ dreams include visiting the top of Africa. In any case, it’s a lot more difficult than you would think. I still keep track of a few points of view. The first is the act of climbing. Kilimanjaro is about 5 kilometers long. This means a couple of things. To begin with, you will not be able to climb it in one day; in reality, it will take at least four days to complete, and that is the shortest journey. Second, the height will eventually catch up with you. When it comes to climbing, elevation is a nightmare, and you should be prepared for it.

Another aspect of climbing Kilimanjaro that could be a little more difficult is the money perspective. Since you’ll have to pay for a guide and, most likely, a sherpa, cook, and check the facts, climbing Mount Kilimanjaro takes a few days. Stuff like that usually cost at least 1600 Euros, and you should remember to tip anyone who supported you with your arrival.
