What you need to know about travelling to Tanzania
1. What to pack
Are you ready to immerse yourself into our fantastic itineraries? Would you like to spend your honeymoon on a safari in Tanzania and Zanzibar? Then you absolutely have to think about what to pack.
To protect yourself from the sun and insects, it’s absolutely important to bring along sunscreens with high protection, alongside a high-coverage insect repellent.
As a precaution, it is advisable to bring generic drugs; in addition to those you may take regularly (antipyretic, broad-spectrum antibiotic, intestinal disinfectant, eye drops).
For safaris, wear light, easily washable items of clothing, a windproof jacket and pullover for early morning activities, as well as sunglasses, a sun cap, a scarf or bandana for the wind, and comfortable sneakers. Long trousers and long-sleeved t-shirts are recommended as they deter insect bites.
2. Cost of touring in Tanzania
All our different safari itineraries in Tanzania include numerous services that are already included in the displayed prices. The only expense not included is the cost of air travel to Tanzania.
However, the cost of travelling to Tanzania may depend on several factors. In fact, the prices of itineraries in Tanzania range from 700€ to 3000 €, depending on the number of days you book and the type of lifestyle you intend to sustain. So if you’ve been wondering how much a tour in Tanzania costs, the answer is: “about 300 € a day”.
For Safari Avventura, payment is made by bank transfer after contacting our staff, with whom we will organise the trip.
3. How we plan your trip to Tanzania
At Safari Avventura we take care of all ground services, assisting travellers from the moment they arrive at the airport, providing full board, a personal guide who speaks Italian and English, private use of a jeep (with power outlets, fridge with cold drinks and snacks, binoculars), and select accommodation.
4. Necessary passports and visas
Foreigners entering Tanzania must be in possession of a passport valid for at least 6 months. The passport must be presented with an ordinary visa to an immigration officer at any point of entry.
The “ordinary visa”, which is normally required for tourist visits, can be requested, before departure, in the country of origin at the Tanzanian Embassy, or directly upon arrival in Tanzania, at a control point, after completing a form, where you will be asked, among other things; flight details, passport number and information, and you will have to pay 50 USD (approximately 42.40 €). No photo is required for this visa type.
5. Vaccinations in Tanzania
For safaris in Tanzania there are NO mandatory vaccinations required.
Hepatitis, typhoid and malaria prophylaxis are recommended. If necessary, consult your doctor or the ASL.
We recommend using an insect repellent and mosquito net to avoid insect and mosquito bites. There aren’t many mosquitoes, especially during the dry season, and the probability of contracting diseases is really low, but it is important to be cautious and avoid any risk. Vaccination for yellow fever is not mandatory, except for those coming from endemic areas, such as Kenya, for which it will be mandatory.
Tanzania has a tropical climate. Temperatures in the highlands vary between 10°C and 20°C during the rainy and dry seasons respectively. Temperatures in the rest of the country rarely fall below 20°C. The hottest period is from November to February (25°C-31°C), while the coldest period is between May and August (15°C-20°C). The climate in the high mountain regions is cool.
In northern Tanzania and on the northern coast, there are two rainy seasons, October-December (called the Small Rains or Vuli) and March respectively.
