Tanzania Travelers' Important Information

All visitors require a visa except citizens of some Commonwealth countries (Canada and the UK exempted), Scandinavian countries, the Republic of Ireland, Rwanda and Sudan. For these nationalities, a free visitor's pass, valid for one to three months, can be picked up at the point of entry (you'll be asked how long you plan to stay - three months is no problem).

You will need proof of yellow fever vaccination if travelling to Zanzibar. Yellow fever, malaria, bilhazia, tsetse fly, cholera, hepatitis, meningitis, typhoid, HIV/AIDS are a serious risk. Tampons are imported and available only in the bigger towns and cities. Locally made sanitary napkins are generally plentiful.

Time: GMT/UTC plus three hours

Electricity: 230V

Weights & measures: Metric

When to Go
The standard tourist season is in January and February, when the hot, dry weather at this time of year is generally considered to be the most pleasant. But to catch the Serengeti at its best you want to avoid the dry season when virtually all the animals go on holiday to Kenya. Be prepared if you're heading into the big wet, as many roads - particularly on the south coast - can become too squishy to drive on.

The biggest annual event in Tanzania begins at the Serengeti National Park near the Kenyan border, when huge herds of wildebeests head for greener pastures in Kenya. Starting in April each year, more than 2 million of these animals migrate across the Serengeti's southern plains accompanied by zebras, antelopes, gazelles, lions and tourists. Tanzanian Independence Day (December 9) somehow pales in significance.
