2. Is It Safe To Visit Tanzania?
Yes. Tanzania is a pretty safe country. Unpleasant incidents are extremely rare on safaris. A recent survey on Tanzania Safety backs our claim. So, as long as you follow the rules and guidelines set out by park staff and your Tanzania Safari guide you will be safe.
3. When Is The Best Time To Go On The Tanzania Safari?
Tanzania Safari is known for its all-year-round activities. Given its close proximity to the equator, Tanzania undergoes two distinct dry and wet seasons. Hence, your ideal time depends on the type of Tanzania Safari Activity you choose. However, the dry season from June to October & December to March is considered to be the best time to go on Tanzania safari.
4. When Is The Best Time To See The Great Wildebeest Migration Tanzania?
The Serengeti Migration congregates in large herds around Lake Ndutu in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area from December to March and is the perfect time to see the wildebeest calving. Whereas, the wildebeest migration river crossing in the Serengeti is usually from June to November.
5. What currency is mostly acceptable in Tanzania?
We would recommend bringing U$D or Euro with you and withdrawing Tanzanian Shillings once you arrive. There are many ATMs in Arusha. The minimum you can withdraw in one go is TSH 400,000. This is about U$D 200 and TSH 450,000 for €200. Most places that you will visit accept dollars but it is always a good idea to have some local currency.
It is mostly recommended to use U$D printed later than 2006 not before.

Tanzania Safari entrails a great range of lodges and tented camps. However, your Tanzania accommodations depend on the type of your packages like luxury safaris, budget safaris, or our Adventure Camping Safari where we will bring our own tents, a safari cook to prepare your meals, food, and all camping equipment.
8. What Is The Official Language Of Tanzania?
Tanzania has two Official Languages; English and Swahili. But the National language of Tanzania is Swahili.
8. Do I need Travel Insurance?
When considering a plan, take inventory of the components of your trip. Pre-paid vacation home rentals, car rentals, and event tickets are more unconventional items to insure, yet they can be costly if forfeited due to an unexpected circumstance. If these costs are added into the total pre-paid cost of the trip, a comprehensive travel insurance plan could protect you if your trip should be cancelled or interrupted.
8. Arusha / Kilimanjaro Airport
Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) is approximately 60km (60 min) from Arusha city centre. Kilimanjaro International Airport serves as the gateway for visitors interested in African safari and scenery, and thus it is uniquely located at the heart of the major tourism attractions of East Africa
Arusha Municipal Airport (ARK) is on the outskirts of Arusha but only runs domestic flights, mostly to Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam.
