Information on yellow fever vaccination is very ambiguous.....
Vaccination (certificate) is not required to enter Tanzania....
However it appears a certificate is needed to enter Zanzibar.....
Is this still correct?
Hey there travelers! For those of you who are planning to travel in Tanzania, or eventually from Tanzania to Malawi, I'd be happy to share our experience and itinerary.
We started in Moshi-Arusha-Kondoa-Kolo rock paintings-Iringa-Ruaha national park-Mbeya-Malawi.
I especially recommend the Ruaha safari, it was not so crowded with tourists and truly awesome. You can read more on my blog, if you are interested. travellovin/travelling-in-tanzania
Or just ask me :)
For the best beaches and a bit of solitude which is the recommended area - Nungwi or Paje or something else? I am not looking for something super expensive but just reasonably quiet. Getting mixed info about Nungwi that it's filled with touts bothering tourists every few minutes, would like to avoid that situation.
Has anyone volunteered with this organisation beforehand? https://www.help2kids.org/en/
I would like to know if it ticks the sustainable tourism criteria, where the proceeds go and the general experience of traveling with them. Another important factor is whether or not they are ethical.
If anyone would feel comfortable to share their story please do, it would help a lot.
I just need as much information as I can get as I am investigating the negative effects of voluntourism and unethical…
We're looking for fit, healthy, experienced and camera-friendly travelers/adventurers willing to join a trip to Tanzania in June. Great opportunity for Africa lovers to share a unique experience.
I have to catch a 4am flight to Nairobi in August from JRO. I would rather not want to wait at the airport from the previous day so trying to figure out if there is a way I can get a reasonably priced hotel as close to the airport as possible. Alternatively I will just stay in Arusha or Moshi but trying to avoid a 45 min journey and not sure what transport options I can find at 1-2am in Arusha or Moshi without being extorted.
We will be flying to Zanzibar and back after our safari tour.
Flights to Zanzibar have strict rules on luggage (15 kg).
Are there anywhere secured luggage lockers at Dar es Salaam airport?
I am planning a trip to the Serengeti in September and we are planning on self driving and camping. We have driven around a safari park before and are keen to avoid the crowds. I've seen that there are public campsites for $30pp but was wondering if anyone knew if there is any accommodation that is slightly better equipped but not at the high end. I'd be happy to spend $60-150 for at least a few of our nights so we aren't roughing it the whole time!
Also if anyone has any tips of which…
Any idea about the reliability of the flights between Dar and Zanzibar?
Which airline is the most reliable? Coastal Aviation? Precision Air?....
I heard it is recommended to return to Dar the day before your continental return flight due to flight delays/cancellations between Zanzibar and Dar.... Does someone has any experience on this?
Hi everyone! I'll be in Zanzibar from 12 June until 26th June and have a booked for 2 people. It's 2 single beds in a surf house in Paje beach. Let me know if anyone is interested, i'll also be travelling around, doing tours and would be cool to have someone to do it with :)
