Best Time to Take a Tanzania Safari

Tanzania is a good safari destination to visit at any time of the year, with peak season from June through February.

 

Luckily, June through February are as well the best months to visit the islands of Zanzibar, while March through May are the least popular times to visit Zanzibar because that is the long rains season in Tanzania and the Islands of Zanzibar but also East Africa at large.

 

Mt. Kilimanjaro treks are always in season! However if you can avoid April-May when the rains are at their peak in East Africa, then it is always good to avoid climbing at that time.

Tanzania FAQs

Tanzania requires 6-months of validity on a passport, at lest one blank page on the passport and a tourist visa, which can be obtained online or purchased at the airport upon arrival.
Feel free to tip your safari guide a tip of at least $ 25 per day or more based on the quality of your tour and your satisfaction on his services. You will need to tip him only at the end of the tour though, because that is what is recommended. You may otherwise leave marginal or small tips in hotels and restaurants after you have been served. Tips are usually appreciated but not absolutely compulsory.
Access to internet during safari in Tanzania has really improved in the recent years. Areas where there was poor internet and network reception in the past now have 4 G lite internet signal with most major internet providers like Airtel, Tigo, and Vodacom. You can buy a local SIM card and use to tither while on safari. Most lodges & tented camps now have WIFI in at least the common areas like the bar and restaurants.

Yes you can use a cellphone in most of the parts of Tanzania, including the national parks. It is worth noting though that some remote areas of the park might be far from the network towers/masts and reception can be poor or non at all.

Yes you do, depending on which country you coming from and what type of sockets you use back home. The national power grid in Tanzania is 220-240v, that means that you will need a converter for any 110v gadgets that can not handle the higher voltage. Depending on where you are, you will also come across both Type G (BS-1363) plugs and Type D (BS-546) power outlets, which may require converters. Otherwise in Tanzania most power outlets are the 3-Pin British style sockets.


Most Tanzanian accommodations (tented camps, inns. Hotels & lodges) will offer the western style bowl toilet that flushes. However depending on where you are travelling to within Tanzania and how remote the area is, It’s possible that you’ll encounter a squat toilet.

Generally tap water in Tanzania can not be declared as safe to drink. It is therefore advisable to only drink the filtered or bottled water provided to you by your safari or mountain climbing tour operator.


On your Tanzania Safari you probably won’t find any ATMs at the parks, except for major towns along the way like Arusha town, Moshi, Dar es Salaam if going to Southern Tanzania, and Karatu if touring Northern Safari circuit in Tanzania. We therefore advise that one gets enough money in USD, that you can change to local currency on arrival before departing for safari. Limited amount withdrawals can also be done in major towns but that can only be in local TSH currency. Most lodges and camps as well as curio shops currently accept all major credit cards. That is one of things that should clear your fears. Please also note that your Tanzania safari, includes all three meals everyday so no need to worry. With enough cash for any tips or souvenirs you are good to go and are set for the trip.

Sure! It’s a precaution that you will hopefully never use anyway, but it can save you lots of dollars incase of anything. It is a great precaution to buy one before setting off for your Tanzania safari.
