Tanzania Travel Safety


With iconic national parks, majestic Mt. Kilimanjaro, and exotic beaches of Zanzibar, Tanzania Safari Tours is voted as the best safari in Africa. But what about Tanzania Safety? Is it safe to travel to Tanzania? Let's find out all about Tanzania Travel Safety?

Yes, Tanzania is a relatively safe country. Every year millions of tourists visit this beautiful country in the hopes of a thrilling Tanzania Travel experience. And, the statistics say that maximum tourists leave the country with their heart bubbling with joy and a secret promise to visit again.

That being said, we urge you to always stay cautious and follow all the safety measures dictated by our Tanzania Travel Safety.

Tanzania Safari Safety Tips

On behalf of Tanzania tourism and Kinesi Tours & Safaris we suggest you abide by the following norms to ensure maximum safety:

  • Tanzania, particularly Dar es Salaam, has its fair share of robberies, petty thefts, and threats of violence.
  • Therefore, we urge you to be cautious especially around Arusha and northern Tanzania.
  • Always prefer registered taxis.
  • If you’re traveling by road and coming through Rwanda, Burundi, and DRC borders, there are chances of an attack from armed bandits around Mount Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti and Arusha National Parks.
  • As per Food Safety in Tanzania, we suggest you avoid buffet food or anything that has been re-heated or left exposed. We recommend you avoid seafood as well.
  • Always prefer bottled water. Even for brushing your teeth, don’t use tap water.

Tanzania Entry Requirements

  • Up to date and valid Passport
  • Three-month single-entry tourist visas (can be issued from embassy, airports, or border posts)

Tanzania Visa

A valid passport of at least 6 months beyond your arrival date is mandatory. You can issue a Tanzania visa for $ 50 upon your arrival at the airports in Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro, and Zanzibar. The visa would be valid for 30 days.

If you are traveling by road then you can also buy a visa at most border posts. Please contact the embassy in your home country for information about your visa to Tanzania or neighboring countries.

People & Culture Of Tanzania

  • With more than 120 ethnic groups Tanzania enjoys a diverse ethnic makeup, with a noteworthy number of Asians, Europeans, and Arabs too.
