Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to take a safari in Tanzania?

The best time to visit our magical corner of the world is January – End of March & June – End of December.

The only time to avoid is April & May which is our rainy season.

What should I pack?

A question that we get asked most often. Pop us a message and we'll send you our detailed packing list to ensure you are totally prepared for your dream safari adventure.

Are the jeeps comfortable?

Ours certainly are 🙂

With plenty of space to carry your luggage, charging ports for your cameras, an ice-cold fridge for those all important refreshments, our hot lunch hampers, tea, coffee & a pop up roof for 360 degree wildlife viewing….oh and every seat is a window seat.

Within our state of the art 4×4 landcruisers, you'll truly be riding in style.

Safari Tipping

Its customary to tip your safari guide at the end of your adventure in the bush. The recommended amount for safari tipping is $20 – $30 USD per person per day to your guide.

Safari with kids

Children are very welcome on safari in Tanzania and there is no minimum age to take part in the adventure.

We took our little safari boy (pictured here) on his first ever safari at just 6 weeks old and he's fallen more and more in love with it ever since.

Dietary Requirements

We can cater to any and all dietary requirements throughout your adventure and have plenty of experience in this. If in doubt, pop us a message and ask 🙂

Local Currency

The local currently in Tanzania is the Tanzanian Shilling. US Dollars are also widely used.

We recommend travelling with a credit/debit card so that you can withdraw some local cash from the ATM, as well as brining some USD along with you for tipping.

Malaria Tablets

Malaria tablets are generally recommended for travel to Tanzania,

However as long as you use a mosquito repellant containing 50% deet, sleep under a mosquito net, there's no reason why you should have any problems.

Travel Vaccinations

Although not a necessity to be enter, there are a few vaccinations recommended before travel:

  • Tetanus
  • Typhoid
  • Hepatitis A

Covid Entry Requirements

International travelers no longer need to show a Covid vaccination certificate or negative Covid test certificate in order to enter Tanzania.


You can purchase your Tanzania Visa online prior to arrival.

The cost varies depending on which country you're coming from.

To give you an idea: The cost is $100 USD for those coming from the US and $50 USD for those coming from the UK.

Pop us a message and we'll send you the application link.

Travel Adaptors

The plug type here in Tanzania is the 3 pin – matching the same plug socket as the UK.

Make sure you bring adaptors along with you to ensure you're able to charge your electricals along the way.
