Thrilling safaris and seductive shores

Home of Mount Kilimanjaro, Tanzania offers the ultimate safari experience, ideal for intrepid travellers and explorers.

More than 1.5 million wildebeest migrate through the Serengeti National Park, making for one of the most fabulous sights you’ll ever see, while the quieter southern parks boast fantastic birdlife and wilderness. If you’re a nature lover, Tanzania is for you. From gazelles and zebras to lions, leopards and hyenas, this is a bucket list location you need to tick off; we recommend spending at least three nights on safari to truly make the most of the experience. For added luxury, head to one of the more opulent resorts, such as the Manta Bay Hotel that boasts a staggering underwater room on Pemba Island.

Combine your trip to Tanzania with Kenya for the ultimate safari; or, spend a few extra nights in Zanzibar for beachfront paradise and white-sand heaven.

Rainy Season
Find more about Arusha National Park

Dry Season

The dry season falls between June and October in Arusha. This season has slightly cooler temperatures with sunny, clear skies. January and February are usually dry but sometimes sees sporadic rain. 

Our Favourite Season

The best time to visit Arusha National Park is during the dry season (June to October), when you will experience sunnier days and see more wildlife gathered at the watering holes. 

Rainy Season

Arusha National Park’s wet season offers mild temperatures that are similar to that of the dry season. The long rains fall between March and May and generally bring a lot of cloud cover. The short rains fall between November and December, although they are unpredictable and rarely all throughout the day.

Find more about Selous Game Reserve

Dry Season

The dry months of June to October see very little rain and most days are sunny with brilliantly blue skies. Humidity is low and the heat isn’t as overpowering as in the wet season. 

Our Favourite Season

Spotting Selous Game Reserve’s magnificent wildlife is easier during the dry season (June to October) as the vegetation is lower and animals congregate around the water holes. These months have warm, sunny weather with reduced humidity. 

Rainy Season

While the rainy season (November to May) sees heavy rain falling, the vegetation is lush and green and absolutely beautiful. This is also peak bird watching time. The heavy rains make some roads impassable, and heat and humidity are very high.

Find more about Zanzibar

Dry Season

Zanzibar has two main dry periods: January to February and June to October. January and February are hotter and a perfect retreat from the UK winter, while June to October offer slightly cooler temperatures. 

Our Favourite Season

Zanzibar’s warm tropical climate and cooling sea breeze barely change all year round. We love to visit in January to February, when the island is at its warmest, and June to October, when temperatures are pleasant and rain rarely falls. 

Rainy Season

Zanzibar has two rainy seasons: mid March to late May and November to December. If you do decide to visit at one of these times, November and December is a better option, with short, sharp showers swiftly followed by sunshine.

Flight Information

There are a number of carriers flying from the UK to Tanzania.

Direct Flights: KLM offer the only direct flight to Tanzania (Kilimanjaro). Why not start your journey at your local airport and transit in Amsterdam?

Indirect Flights: Kenya Airways, British Airways and Etihad Airways fly to Tanzania and Zanzibar from London Heathrow via Nairobi. Kenya Airways has an unrivalled route network making any safari and beach combination possible. Oman Air & Qatar Airways also have access into Tanzania (including the island of Zanzibar) via their respective hubs.

Departure Taxes: There is an International departure tax of US $48, however this is usually included in the cost of your flight ticket. Please contact your airline if you are unsure.

Tipping

Tipping is common practice in Tanzania and safari rangers and guides as well as hotel staff rely heavily on tipping.

You should tip driver guides and trackers approximately $15 per day per person and always tip porters and hotel staff approximately $1 per service they perform for you. Whenever possible, give your tips directly to the staff you want to thank.

Health

Before travelling you should ensure you are up to date with the standard vaccinations such as Diptheria, Tetanus, Hepititis A and Polio. Also recommended are Typhoid, Meningitis, Tuberculosis and anti malarial protection. Passengers arriving in Tanzania may be asked to present a valid Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate. This is for passengers who transit in a Yellow Fever Endemic area and are at the airport for 12 hours or more or if they leave the airport at all. Always consult your GP for up to date vaccination requirements for the country and area you are visiting.

Visa Information

British passport holders are required a visa to enter Tanzania. We recommend you obtain this prior to travel , however it is possible to obtain a single entry visa on arrival for US$ 50. Your passport must be valid for at least six months beyond your intended stay in Tanzania. Please contact the Tanzanian High Commission for up to date country and visa information on 0207 569 1470.

Currency

The official currency is the Tanzanian Shilling, which cannot be bought or sold outside Tanzania. You can change US Dollars, UK Pounds, and Euros at banks and currency exchanges when you get there. US Dollars are widely accepted; you will need them to purchase visas when you arrive and pay for park entry fees.

How to get your currency

A combination of US Dollars and Tanzanian Shillings is the best option for your holiday in Tanzania. Make sure you get undamaged, newer dollar bills; many places do not accept those printed before 2005. Most high-end hotels and safari lodges accept Visa and MasterCard, but restaurants and shops do not usually accept credit cards. Cash machines can be found in larger towns and airports. Traveller's cheques are not commonly used and can be expensive and time consuming to change.
