GENERAL INFORMATION

Getting around: Tanzania has in general very friendly and peaceful people. You might hear ‘karibu’ a lot, which means ‘welcome’ and is a sign of cultural hospitality. This invitation can be for entering a shop, house or sharing a meal. Feel free to accept or decline politely with ‘asante sana’ (thanks a lot). As in many impoverished countries, where income gaps are huge, sensible caution should always be exercised. Before leaving your hotel, get advice on places to visit and avoid isolated areas if you are alone, especially after dark.

 

Photography Please be sensitive when photographing people. It is courteous to ask permission before snapping away.

 

Health Requirements Preventative measures should be taken against malaria. It is advised that you consult a physician regarding malaria prophylactics and other vaccinations. Please note that a yellow fever vaccination certificate is required for all travelers coming from a yellow-fever infected country in Africa or Americas, unless you stayed in airport transit.

There are exchange offices in most cities that accept major currencies and offer good exchange rates. Even Traveler’s Cheques are exchanged, at a lower rate though. ATMs are available in large cities while maximum withdrawal per session is restricted to 400 000 Tsh (~$260). Get information from your bank/credit card provider about withdrawal fees and daily withdrawal limits in foreign countries.
