How are road Conditions in Tanzania?
Roads in Tanzania are generally not paved especially inside the national parks. You should be prepared to ride over rough and bumpy roads during game drives and some transfers. However, this is part of your African massage, which you only get in Africa.
Hows shopping done in Tanzania?
Tanzania offers a lot of locally handmade crafts. During your visit you will have time to shop in various curio shops located along the major roads heading to the national parks. You will see different kinds of carvings, masks, antique, beadwork, paintings etc. If you are fond of jewelry, then Tanzanite, a unique precious gemstone only found in Tanzania, is awaiting for you. It's a beautiful dark blue stone that travelers must have before returning home. Major credit cards are accepted by most of the larger curio shops and you can negotiate the price for most items.
Is Electricity available all the time:
Almost all the lodges and camps use generators for electricity. Some lodges and camps provide power 24 hours a day and some cut power at certain times during the day and at midnight. In East Africa 220-250V systems are used, you will need a universal adaptor for charging your batteries, shaving etc. Power sockets also vary but are usually the three-square pin variety.
Will I need a Medical Kit?
All of our guides have first aid training, and each vehicle contains a first aid kit. We still recommend you have your own medical kit with various medicines and other items. Your doctor can recommend items to take. We will be in remote areas, so being prepared for anything is recommended.
