Important Lessons to Learn Before Traveling to Tanzania

Whenever someone mentions traveling to the African continent, the country of Tanzania isn’t really one of the first places that come to mind. But then again, not many people are aware that a visit to this country should be a priority because it has a lot to offer than meets the eye. So, if you’re someone who wants to at least try something new this year, a visit to Tanzania should be on your shortlist, especially if you like the prospect of joining a safari, island recreation, or simply seeing nature at its best. Truth to be told, there are so many other things you will certainly enjoy once you visit the country.

But just like when you’re visiting a place for the very first time, there are certain things you need to know first so that your journey won’t end up being a disappointment.

1 – Bring your most comfortable and reliable walking shoes.

When you’re traveling to a place for a holiday or vacation, you usually just bring with you sandals and flip-flops. But that won’t work if you’re heading to Tanzania. What you need to bring instead is a good pair of walking shoes or trainers that will be capable of braving through rough and steep roads and terrains.

2 – Cheap travel doesn’t mean you no longer need to book in advance.

Traveling to Tanzania is really affordable, but you do have to book in advance, regardless of the type of transportation because the lack of options could mean that all options could easily get fully booked for several weeks.

3 – The people in Tanzania are great.

It may be true that there are so many other places in the world that can easily defeat Tanzania in terms of interesting sights and destinations, but one advantage you get in this country is the hospitality of its people. The country may be very diverse considering it has more than a hundred ethnic groups, but the interesting thing is that it seems like every ethnic group is more than willing and happy to showcase the distinctiveness of their culture to you.

4 – Obviously, you need to secure a Visa first.

It goes without saying that a visa is needed for a foreign national to enter Tanzania, whether your purpose is for vacation or business. However, you also should know that a select Asian and African nationals are permitted to enter the country without a visa, but the catch is they only can stay for a maximum of three months.

5 – Be ready to get used to a whole new environment.

Finally, considering the fact that you’re entering a tropical environment, it means you might have to prepare yourself, more specifically by taking some health precautions. For instance, get some meds to protect yourself against mosquitoes and be sure you drink bottled water all throughout your stay.
