Things You Must Learn When You Plan On a Visit to Tanzania
Whenever someone talks about visiting Africa, there really isn’t that much interest in the country of Tanzania. 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. Now if you consider yourself as adventurous enough to try something new this year, you definitely will like the prospect of visiting Tanzania, especially if you’re intrigued with stuff like safaris, mountain trekking, nature sightseeing, and island recreation. And yes, those things are just some of the few of what the country has to offer.
But just like visiting any other place, region, or country for the first time, you need to be prepared.
1 – Bring the best shoes for walking.
Traditionally, going on a holiday or vacation means bringing the lightest footwear like sandals and flip-flops. But that won’t work if you’re heading to Tanzania. Instead, you need to bring trainers and/or walking shoes that can withstand steep and challenging hiking 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 – If there is one particular thing that Tanzania is very proud of, it’s the fact that the people are great.
There are so many places in the world and in Africa that offer some of the best sights and tourist destinations, but you might easily get turned off by them if there’s a reputation of being not hospitable. 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 – Be sure you bring with you your Visa.
It doesn’t matter if you’re traveling for a holiday/vacation or to do business; when you visit Tanzania as a foreign national, you need to visa to enter the country. But it is also worthy of mention that some Asian and African nationals actually can enter the country with a visa, but the visit is limited for three months.
5 – You have to be ready to adapt to a 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 one, be sure you’re drinking bottled water all the way and ask your doctor on how you can protect yourself from mosquitoes.
