Tanzania Travel Tip

What You Need To Know Before You Go Tanzania

These Tanzania travel tips will help you plan your trip to Tanzania.

Passport and Visa
Please ensure that you are holding a valid passport with sufficient blank pages for entry stamps in each country visited, and that you apply for visas prior to your departure.

It is advisable to check with the Consulate of the country you intend visiting for the latest visa and entry requirements beforehand or contact us and we’ll gladly advise you with regard to documentation
passport and visa
Clothing
You will require comfortable, casual and semi-casual clothes for your safari to Africa. Please note that bright colours are not suitable for game-viewing and that game-drives are conducted in the early morning and late afternoon which can be cold, especially in winter.

Seasons and Temperatures
Each region usually experiences lovely hot summers and mild winters and offers exceptional game viewing opportunities throughout the year. The annual Great Migration in the Serengeti and Masai Mara is a 12-month cycle. Our consultants will advise when and where are the best times.

  • Kenya : Gentle, warm climate. Daytime temperatures are mild and nights can be fairly cool. Summer extends from October to April, with December to March being the warmest months. All year, minimum temperatures are 11ºC/52ºF and maximum temperatures are 30ºC/86ºF. The cool season is from May to September. Depending on when the rains come, the Great Migration normally reaches Kenya in July. Hundreds of thousands of herbivores then disperse onto the plains of the Masai Mara for the next couple of months.
  • Tanzania : Warm climate with maximum temperatures of 32°C/90°F. Early mornings and evenings can be cold with minimum temperatures of 12°C/90°F. Winter is from May to September, and summer from October to April. Rainfall is seasonal with the so-called ‘short rains’ in November and December and the ‘long rains’ from March to May.

Money
As certain African currencies are difficult to change outside the country of origin it is advisable to only change money as required. Most international airports have banks where money can be changed, and facilities are usually available at hotels and lodges. Most major credit cards are accepted at lodges/hotels, shops and restaurants. As exchange rates fluctuate, please check with your local bank or business media prior to departure.
