Tanzania

Exploring the magnificent Serengeti National Park on a once-in-a-lifetime safari, experiencing some of the customs and traditions of its 150 different ethnic groups and getting up close and personal with the notorious Mount Kilimanjaro are just some of the most popular pursuits to be had in Tanzania. As such, this, the largest and one of the most fascinating and beautiful of all the Central African countries, is only too eager to welcome tourist visitors; its sensible and relatively lenient visa system ensures millions of them flock to the country every year.

Tanzania FAQ

The largest country in East Africa, Tanzania is the oldest continuously inhabited region in the world. In fact, scientists believe that it used to be the home for some of the oldest known hunter-gatherer communities. For non-archaeologist tourists though, it’s the incredible wildlife and mountainous terrain, which includes Mount Kilimanjaro, that attracts foreigners. People from all around the world go there to brave the climb.

Tanzania’s visa policy is pretty lenient and many nationalities are visa-exempt for visits of up to 90 days. If your visa isn’t waived, then chances are that you are eligible for a visa on arrival or an electronic visa. You can opt for whichever is more convenient for you.

The electronic visa can be obtained with fastrackvisa.com’s help. You can acquire it in as little as 5 business days. You can opt for a 1-year visa or one with 90 days of validity. The latter is single-entry. No matter which one you choose, you can stay in Tanzania for up to 90 days per entry.

All other nationalities that are neither eligible for a visa on arrival nor an electronic visa have no other choice than to go to the nearest diplomatic mission of Tanzania and apply for a visa there.

One of the most popular activities in Tanzania is going on safari, tours of the Serengeti National Park being one of the most popular options, where you can witness the Great Migration. Every year, hundreds of thousands of animals migrate, whilst cheetahs, lions, leopards, hippos, elephants, zebras, buffalo, gazelle and many other animals roam the plains all year round.

Cultural tours are also popular in Tanzania, home to over 150 ethnic groups. That comes with a lot of traditions and a rich culture. You can go hunting with bushmen, learn some traditional medicine, or even learn the tricks of beekeeping. Tanzania also houses numerous national parks, also rich in wildlife.

Tanzania’s beaches are a popular highlight. With the Indian Ocean in the east and some of the most beautiful unspoiled beaches, holidaying beach bums can enjoy the white sand and palm trees, whilst scuba diving enthusiasts frequent Pemba and Zanzibar.

The official language in Tanzania is Swahili. It is spoken by about 90% of the population. However, if you plan to visit only popular tourist spots and large cities, you’ll find people who speak English. But if you go on a cultural tour to remote locations, you’ll need to learn some Swahili to interact.

As for food and drink, you need to be cautious. You will have no issues in restaurants, but if you go to smaller villages, make sure that your meat is cooked thoroughly, and the drinking water is boiled. If you want to try some local food, Mtori is a meal cooked with beef and bananas. However, the most ‘local’ dish, so to speak, is Ugali. It is made with cornflour and is an accompaniment for cooked meat and stews.

If you decide to visit Zanzibar, remember that many of the locals are Muslim, which is why you need to dress conservatively and pay proper respect. As a woman, you should not wear anything revealing, but you have the option of purchasing some beautiful Kangas. They are brightly coloured wrap-around pieces of cloth that you can use for covering up.

When it comes to safety, common sense prevails. Tourist attractions are known to be frequented by petty thieves as well, and we advise against walking alone at night in the cities. Before you go to Tanzania, you should contact your primary care physician about shots against malaria and yellow fever. But just in case, always have a net with you. Especially when you visit villages. Other than that, stick to bottled water and be careful where you eat.
