Top Tip

Tanzania & Kenya experience a short dry season from December to February so it’s perfect for a winter escape. Calving season usually starts in January so it’s a great time to see the baby grazers and experience a Big 5 safari without the peak season crowds.

Tanzania Safaris FAQs

Is Tanzania a good place for a safari holiday?

Tanzania is a highly recommended and popular destination for a safari, offering a diverse range of experiences that appeal to a wide variety of travellers. The country is renowned for its stunning landscapes, including the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro, the vast Serengeti National Park with its incredible wildlife migrations, and the picturesque beaches of Zanzibar. Tanzania offers exceptional opportunities for wildlife safaris, cultural interactions with local tribes, exploring vibrant markets, and experiencing the rich history and traditions of East Africa. Whether you're an adventure seeker, a nature lover, or interested in cultural immersion, Tanzania's offerings make it a fantastic choice for a memorable and fulfilling holiday.

Can I drink the water in Tanzania?

In Tanzania, it is generally not recommended to drink tap water. The water quality and sanitation standards may vary, and tap water may not be safe for consumption by visitors who are not accustomed to the local conditions. To avoid potential health risks, it's advisable to drink bottled or purified water, which is widely available in hotels, lodges, restaurants, and shops. Staying hydrated is important, especially in the African climate, so make sure to drink plenty of safe water from reliable sources to ensure a healthy and enjoyable trip.


What should I pack for Tanzania?

When packing for Tanzania, include lightweight and breathable clothing for warm weather, long-sleeved options for sun and insect protection, warm attire for cooler evenings or higher altitudes, comfortable shoes, and a hat. For safaris, bring neutral-coloured clothing, binoculars, a camera with accessories, and a small daypack. Health essentials such as malaria prophylaxis, mosquito repellent, sunscreen, and a basic first aid kit are crucial. Don't forget travel documents, power adapters, cash, toiletries, and a reusable water bottle. Consider cultural considerations and dress modestly when needed. Efficient packing tailored to your activities and destinations will ensure a smooth and enjoyable trip to Tanzania.

What vaccinations do I need for Tanzania?

Before travelling to Tanzania, it's recommended to ensure your routine vaccinations are up-to-date and receive required vaccinations such as Yellow Fever, as documented proof is necessary for entry. Additional vaccinations to consider based on health advisories include Hepatitis A and B, Typhoid, Malaria prevention measures, Meningitis, and Rabies if engaging in outdoor activities or animal contact. Consult a travel health professional to receive personalised guidance and medication for malaria prevention, and follow preventive measures like using mosquito repellent and practising good hygiene to ensure a safe and healthy trip.
