For optimal wildlife safaris, consider traveling to Tanzania from July to October. This period marks the dry season, offering improved viewing opportunities as vegetation recedes, making the bush less dense. Animals gather around water holes, enhancing your chances of sightings. Keep in mind that this is the peak season, attracting a significant number of visitors worldwide, resulting in potential crowding and higher costs. Alternatively, the shoulder season, November to March, presents a favorable travel time. While the bush may be denser, making wildlife spotting more challenging, this period sees fewer tourists and can offer more budget-friendly options.

The great wildebeest migration in Tanzania and Kenya is a remarkable natural spectacle. Witness over 1.5 million wildebeest, along with zebras, antelopes, gazelles, impalas, and elands, embark on an annual journey. Driven by diminishing grazing opportunities, they follow the rainfall patterns to greener pastures. This epic migration involves perilous river crossings, where lurking predators await. It’s a year-round phenomenon, with the animals traversing a circular route from Tanzania to Kenya and back. The arrival of April and May rains triggers their movement from the Serengeti to the Masai Mara in Kenya, where they graze. After a few months, as resources deplete, they embark on the return journey to the Serengeti, repeating this awe-inspiring cycle.

Tanzania beckons families with its enchanting landscapes, diverse wildlife, and captivating adventures. Discover pristine beaches, vast skies, and majestic creatures that will leave children awe-inspired. While Tanzania is a family-friendly safari destination, planning is crucial. Research safari lodges and camps beforehand, as some may have age restrictions. Discuss these details with your tour operator, clarifying any limitations. Certain lodges may welcome children above a specific age, while activities like walking safaris or game drives might have age restrictions. Fortunately, some camps offer tailored experiences for families. Safety-wise, taking kids on a safari is generally secure; emphasize attentive listening to guides. Prepare for an unforgettable family safari in Tanzania, creating lifelong memories together.

Even though Swahili, a Bantu language, is the official language of Tanzania and majority of the population speak it, not everyone in Tanzania speaks it. They might speak a variation of the Bantu languages as there are quite a few Bantu and Nilotic languages spoken throughout Tanzania. English is the second official language, spoken by a large number of Tanzanians – a remnant of colonial rule (formerly known as the Tanganyika territory).

Although Tanzania’s official currency is Tanzanian Shilling, which is accepted throughout the country, US Dollars are also widely accepted in a majority of tourist areas. However, the locals don’t usually accept US dollar notes printed before 2009. We recommend visitors exchange money at authorised dealers in Tanzania plus there are options to use ATMs to get the local currency. Most of the Tanzanian outlets accept Mastercard and Visa.

The majority of visitors travelling to Tanzania require a visa to enter Tanzania. There are certain exceptions to that rule. Visitors can either obtain a visa on arrival or get a visa prior to travel from the Tanzania Consulate in their country of residence. Some visitors (from specific countries) may not require a Tanzanian visa at all. Refer to Tanzania Immigration website for the complete list of visa-exempt countries. You can also refer to the same page for Referral Visa Cases, as it provides a list of countries that can acquire a visa on arrival. There are numerous types of visa, but visitors who want to travel to Tanzania for leisure require a Single Entry or an ordinary Visa. In addition make sure your passport has at least six months validity.
