View on Tanzania and its peculiarities

July 11, 2017 by Robert Roberts  

United Republic of Tanzania - a country in East Africa.

Tanzania - one of the most interesting tourist regions of East Africa. Vast areas of the National Parks (Serengeti, Kilimanjaro, Ruaha, Tarangire, etc.) With a huge variety of wildlife, the huge cones of ancient volcanoes, the beautiful landscapes of the Central Plateau and the Great Rift zone, the length of coastline and picturesque islands, the unique culture of local tribes - all it gives the country a unique flavor and a great attraction for visitors.


The climate in Tanzania is tropical, hot and humid on the coast and dry on the mainland. The temperature during the year can vary from +20 to +32 ° C, but on the coast does not drop below +25 ° C. Warmest in February and March, the cool (of course, relative) - in July and August.

During the rainy season (October-November - the season of "short rains", March-May - season "long rains") in different parts of the country are felt differently. The dry season lasts 5-7 months. The best time to visit the north of the country - July-October and December-March, the south - June-October, the West - December to March and from May to October. On the islands of Zanzibar and Mafia is best to rest in the July-October and December-March.


In Tanzania, people are paying the price with each other shillings (Tsh).

One euro - about 1750 shillings. Beer costs about 2,000 shillings, cola - about 1,000 ATMs in Tanzania - a rarity. So take it with a little more cash. For example, the nearest ATM is 96 km away.


Citizens of Ukraine and the CIS visa is issued upon arrival in Tanzania. To obtain a visa at the border in the Department of Immigration office must submit the following documents: passport, the validity of which is not less than six months from the date of entry; return tickets; proof of sufficient funds for travel at the rate of 5000 TZS (4 USD) per person per night.
