The Things You First Must Learn Before Visiting Tanzania
When there’s talk of traveling to Africa, not a lot of people will think about 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. The truth is there actually are so many things you will love doing in the country once you make that visit.
But similar to going or visiting to any other country for the first time, it is important that you first learn things about Tanzania so that your travel won’t become a disappointment.
1 – Don’t forget to bring your best walking shoes.
Traditionally, going on a holiday or vacation means bringing the lightest footwear like sandals and flip-flops. But that old practice will not work if you’re visiting Tanzania. What you need to bring instead is a good pair of walking shoes or trainers that will be capable of braving through rough and steep roads and terrains.
2 – You still need to book in advance even if travel is relatively cheaper.
Even if traveling to Tanzania is cheap, you still have to book in advance if you don’t want to see yourself canceling your trip simply because everything has been fully booked for weeks already.
3 – One of the nicest things that await you in Tanzania are the people.
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.
Because you’re not familiar or used to a tropical environment, the weather and other stuff could take its toll on you, which means you need to take some health precautions before you leave and once you get there. For one, be sure you’re drinking bottled water all the way and ask your doctor on how you can protect yourself from mosquitoes.
