Visa: Citizens of most European countries, as well as the United States and Canada, require a visa to enter Tanzania. The visa can be obtained when entering the country. Its price varies between USD 50 to USD 100. For further information, please contact the Tanzanian Consulate in your country.
Vaccinations: A Yellow Fever vaccination is required for Tanzania. Please make sure you have the necessary vaccination proof.
Malaria: For short stays (of up to one month) it is recommendable to take Malaria prophylactics – we recommend Malerone.
Credit Cards: Credit card facilities are increasingly available in Tanzania. Yet, it is recommendable to travel with a sufficient amount of cash when visiting more rural areas. Please also renounce to bringing traveler’s cheques with you, because they are rarely accepted if at all.
Cash: US Dollars and Euros are generally accepted everywhere or can easily be changed into Tanzanian Shillings. Please be aware that in Tanzania, as well as in most other East African countries, Dollar notes issued before 2005 are not accepted.
Driver’s License: On the Tanzanian mainland, an international driver’s license will be accepted. For Zanzibar, a temporary local license has to be issued, based on your country’s driver’s license. The process is easy and fast, costs USD 10, and we will be happy to provide the license for you.
Electricity: 230 Volts Ac, 50 hz. Adapters are available in most hotels and local shops, in case plugs do not match.
Local Time: GMT +3
Dress: Please respect local custom and do not walk around in shorts, mini skirts, or with naked shoulders (a light scarf will do). This applies in particular to the coastal areas and Zanzibar.
Insurance: Please arrange health and travel insurance in your home country. Our cars are insured (collision, damage, waver).
We have a wide range of selected vehicles including min vans, saloon, buses and motorbikes. Choose what the best for you and make an online reservation.
