What to Pack

Take along plenty of mosquito and insect repellents, even though most accommodation is mosquito proofed; a first aid kit put together with advise from your GP, containing amongst other medication, anti-histamines and anti-diarrhoea medicines. Suntan creams with a high SPF of 30 + is an absolute necessity. Travellers planning to do some fishing or mountaineering should carry along their own gear.

Clothing requirements are met by lightweight cotton clothes or wash and wear fabrics but the higher altitudes in places like Arusha where temperatures can fall to below 10ºC demand warmer garments. Cameras, binoculars, backpacks, good sturdy shoes and solar/sun hats are good items to pack in for the safaris.

Travel Documents

Please note that visa requirements are liable to change at short notice. For up-to-date information contact the nearest Tanzanian Embassy or Consulate. Also, the granting of a visa does not guarantee entry into the country. The Immigration Officer reserves the right to grant or deny admission. Passports are necessary for all travellers even the ones that don’t need visas. Visas are essential for all visitors except nationals of Commonwealth nations, (Canada & UK excepted) Scandinavian countries, Republic of Ireland, Rwanda, Romania & Sudan. But nationals from these countries do require a Visitor’s Pass (issued free) valid for 1-3 months. The pass can be obtained at any of the border crossings or entry points into Tanzania. Visas can be either issued in the tourist or business visa category for single or multiple entries. Visas must be used within three months of issue for single entry and within six months for multiple entry ones.
