Be sure to get appropriate health insurance that fits your travel and personal needs, and have funds available to cover any medical emergency. Good medical care is available in Dar es Salaam, as well as in Arusha and in some mission stations. Otherwise, you’ll need to go to Nairobi (Kenya), which is the main destination for medical evacuations from Tanzania. Malaria is a threat in the country, malaria pills are highly advised. Check the recommended vaccination list here.
Tanzania is, overall, a safe country to visit. This is even more so if your visit is primarily an organized safari. Pickpocketing and mugging can still take place in popular tourist sites. Be aware of your surroundings and most importantly avoid carrying large amounts of money in crowded places. Walking alone in the cities is not recommended.
The yellow fever vaccination is required if you are arriving from an endemic area (which includes several of Tanzania’s neighbours). Almost all nationalities need a single-entry visa to enter Tanzania, which costs US$50 for most nationalities (US$100 for US citizens).
The high tourism season is between June and September, when the weather is cooler and dry. It’s great for animal watching as they tend to congregate around water sources, making it easy to spot various animals at once. Between October and February, the weather is very hot, with short rains and seasonal trade winds. Low season is between March to May, with heavy rainfall and muddy roads, some areas might not be accessible.
Tanzania is multilingual. English, Bantu, and Swahili are widely spoken.
In Tanzania the power plugs and sockets are of type D and G. The standard voltage is 230 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.
