Things You Must Learn When You Plan On a Visit to Tanzania

When there’s talk of traveling to Africa, not a lot of people will think about Tanzania. But what most people don’t realize is that there are so many interesting things in the country that are as equally worthy of visiting to that of the more popular destinations in the continent. So, if you’re someone who wants to at least try something new this year, a visit to Tanzania should be on your shortlist, especially if you like the prospect of joining a safari, island recreation, or simply seeing nature at its best. Truth to be told, there are so many other things you will certainly enjoy once you visit the country.

But similar to going or visiting to any other country for the first time, it is important that you first learn things about Tanzania so that your travel won’t become a disappointment.

1 – Don’t forget to bring your best walking shoes.

Typically, when you visit far away places for a holiday or vacation, your suitcase will be filled with sandals and flip-flops, because all you need is light footwear. But that won’t work if you’re heading to Tanzania. What you need to bring instead is a good pair of walking shoes or trainers that will be capable of braving through rough and steep roads and terrains.

2 – Although travel is affordable in this part of the world, you still nee d to book in advance.

Traveling to Tanzania is really affordable, but you do have to book in advance, regardless of the type of transportation because the lack of options could mean that all options could easily get fully booked for several weeks.

3 – One of the nicest things that await you in Tanzania are the people.

It may be true that there are so many other places in the world that can easily defeat Tanzania in terms of interesting sights and destinations, but one advantage you get in this country is the hospitality of its people. The country is quite diverse, ethnically speaking, but the thing is the diversity is the very reason why ethnic groups are so excited in showcasing their unique cultures to visitors like you.

4 – Obviously, you need to secure a Visa first.

It doesn’t matter if you’re traveling for a holiday/vacation or to do business; when you visit Tanzania as a foreign national, you need to visa to enter the country. There are some Asian and African nationals though that are free to enter the country without a visa, but their stay is limited to three months.

5 – You have to be ready to adapt to a new environment.

Because you’re not familiar or used to a tropical environment, the weather and other stuff could take its toll on you, which means you need to take some health precautions before you leave and once you get there. For example, you have to bring some medicine to protect you against mosquitoes, while it should be wise to just drink bottled water.
