How safe is Tanzania?

Tanzania is generally a safe travel destination, but it’s always important to take basic precautions. Stick to well-populated and well-lit areas, avoid displaying valuables openly, and keep important documents secure. Respect local customs and cultures to avoid conflicts. In more remote areas and during safaris, it’s crucial to follow your guide’s instructions. Guruguru Safaris places a high priority on your safety and takes all necessary measures to ensure you have a carefree and secure journey.

What language do they speak in Tanzania?

In Tanzania, multiple languages are spoken, with Swahili being the official language. English is also widely used, especially in educational institutions and the business environment. Additionally, there are numerous regional and ethnic languages spoken by the various ethnic groups in Tanzania, including Sukuma, Chagga, Nyamwezi, and many others. During your stay in Tanzania, you will always have an English-speaking guide available to assist you with any questions or concerns.

What clothing is appropriate?

In Tanzania, it’s advisable to bring lightweight and breathable clothing, especially due to the warm climate. Wear loose, comfortable clothing to protect yourself from the intense sun. Casual attire is accepted in cities and tourist areas, but in rural areas and during safari excursions, it’s appropriate to wear respectful clothing that honors local traditions and cultures. Long pants and long sleeves can protect you from insect bites and are also useful during cooler evenings. Don’t forget to pack comfortable hiking shoes and a hat to shield yourself from the sun. It’s also wise to have a lightweight rain cover with you, as Tanzania can experience rainfall during certain seasons.
