A trip to Tanzania is an amazing opportunity, but foreign travel can pose unique challenges that should be incorporated into the planning process. For your safety consider purchasing a comprehensive travel insurance policy in case of medical emergencies, trip emergencies, or unforeseen cancellations. If your credit card offers travel insurance, verify with your card company that all possible scenarios are covered.
Follow all quoted precautions to best prevent against any regional medical problems, including malaria transmission. Please contact our team or your doctor to be sure you have the most up-to-date information regarding malaria prevention and protection.

All tourists to Tanzania National Park are charged per person and per 24 hour period.
The currency in Tanzania is the Tanzanian shilling (TZS) and is available in denominations of 500, 1,000, 2,000, 5,000, and 10,000. Exchanges can be made at all international travel hubs as well as most banks. US dollars (after 2006) are also widely accepted throughout Tanzania, but travellers’ checks are not.
Wherever you go in Tanzania, opportunities abound for getting to know the country's people and cultures. Meet red-cloaked Maasai warriors. Spend time with semi-nomadic Barabaig near Mt Hanang. Experience the hospitality of a local meal and the rhythms of traditional dance. Chat and barter at local markets. More than anything else, it is the Tanzanian people – with their characteristic warmth and politeness, and the dignity and beauty of their cultures – that make visiting Tanzania so memorable. Chances are you'll want to come back for more, to which most Tanzanians will say ‘kaributena’ (welcome again).
