  • Tanzania is an escape from the concrete jungles into the wild. Mount Kilimanjaro is a UNESCO World Heritage site and the highest peak in Africa. This is the world’s fourth highest peak and rises approximately 4,877 metres from its base to 5,895 metres above sea level. The best time to visit Tanzania for safari and climbing Mount Kilimanjaro is either between July and October or January to March, while the best time to visit Tanzania's coast, its islands and Zanzibar is between August and October.
  • Tanzania is a pretty safe country. The majority speaks Swahili, but English and other international languages are spoken too. There will be no language barriers when it comes to major shopping centres, tourist towns, beaches etc.
  • There are no direct flights from India to Tanzania but there are a lot of flights with at least one connecting stop. If you can afford it, getting around in Tanzania by plane is the quickest and most comfortable option. Driving yourself, or travelling in trains (unless first class) is not recommended. Travelling by bus is generally safer, quicker, and cheaper. Towns and cities are linked by a steady stream of buses and dala-dalas (minibuses), and in the cities, there is public transport in the way of buses, dala-dalas, taxis, and, in some places, bicycles or tuk-tuks.
