  • 1) Both US Dollars and Tanzania Schillings are equally accepted. Most tourist stores and restaurants price items 
    in USD. Therefore, it is not necessary to have Schillings, if travelers bring enough USD.

    2) If travelers do bring USD, bring small bills ($20 $10 $5 $1). Old $100 bills are not accepted and vendors are reluctant to accept new ones.

    3) Travelers can get Schillings if needed, but there are very few ATMS
    Travelers will need to plan ahead with the guide to get cash. It is best to withdraw a large amount at once since there are so few opportunities.

    4) Most stores and restaurants will accept major credit cards, however they will 
    charge you a fee (typically 4-5%).

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
