There are three different safari circuits, and each one of them alone would make Tanzania a great wildlife destination. The Big Five and most other sought-after safari animals are easily sighted.
On arrival in Tanzania, you will be greeted in Swahili or English. Many Tanzanians speak English, but you should take along a Swahili to English phrasebook to make it easy for you to understand the basics.
Traveling with Your Family in Tanzania
Tanzania is a very child-friendly destination. With the closed safari vehicles, children are allowed on the game drives. Most camps also offer programs to keep the little ones entertained. It is also recommended to look at camps that have a pool for the kids to enjoy besides the safari element.
Food and Water
While the water is safe, it is recommended that you only drink bottled water, which will be available on your safari as well as at your lodge. When in larger towns and cities or simply enjoying the bustle of village life, try to avoid eating from street vendors as you cannot be sure of how the food is handled or prepared.
The official currency in Tanzania is the Tanzanian shilling. The US dollar is accepted in some establishments however, it is a good idea to find out whether you will be able to pay with your currency. If you plan to spend US dollars, ensure that your notes are older than 2006 to avoid rejection. You can also exchange foreign currency at the bank and at some currency exchange offices. Many hotels will generally offer this service at favourable exchange rates.
Just like many other African countries, Tanzanians have certain local customs that you need to be aware of. Avoid touching the opposite sex in public as this could offend some of the locals. If you take a taxi without a meter, agree on a price before you start the journey.
