Tanzania FAQs
Do I need a visa to travel to Tanzania?
Tanzania does require 6-months of validity on a passport and a tourist visa, which can be purchased at the airport upon arrival.

Is tipping customary in Tanzania?
Feel free to tip your guide $10 or more based on the quality of your tour; otherwise, you can leave marginal or small tips in hotels and restaurants. Tips are usually appreciated but not generally expected.

What is internet access like in Tanzania?
Since most of our tours through Tanzania are safari expeditions, it is unlikely that you will have internet access unless you are staying at one of the more luxurious hotels, and even then the access is not guaranteed. You should go with the assumption that you will not have internet access for most of your trip.

Can I use my cell phone while in Tanzania?
Since you will be on a safari-type expedition, it's unlikely that you will be close enough to any cell towers to be able to use your cell phone.

Do I need power adapters?
The power grid in Tanzania is 220-240v, meaning that you will need a converter for any 110v devices that can't handle the higher voltage. Depending on where you are, you will also encounter both Type G (BS-1363) plugs and Type D (BS-546) outlets, which require converters.

What are the toilets like in Tanzania?
Camp, inn, lodge, or hotel, your Tanzania accommodations will offer a western style bowl toilet that flushes. It's possible that if you are in more rural parts of the country on an expedition that you'll encounter a squat toilet. 

Can I drink the water in Tanzania?
Tap water in Tanzania is not safe to drink. Only drink the filtered or bottled water provided to you by your tour operator.

Are credit cards accepted in Tanzania? Will I be able to find ATMs?
You probably won't find any ATMs or card-accepting businesses on your Tanzania safari, but don't worry- that's why our trips are all inclusive. When you arrive you can take out just enough cash for any tips or souvenirs and then you'll be set for the trip.

Should I purchase travel insurance?
Always. It's a precaution that you'll hopefully never use but it can save you thousands of dollars, and we offer some great deals via TravelGuard on our Once You're Booked page.
