Tanzania Travel Facts from Authentic Tanzania

Tanzania Safaris

Pre-departure travel advice from Authentic Tanzania Safaris

Tanzania is located on the East coast of Africa and borders 8 other African countries. Whilst the political capital is Dodoma, located in the centre of the country, Dar es Salaam is very much the commercial capital.

With it’s busy international airport, Dar es Salaam is generally the first port of call for all tourists wishing to start their Tanzania Safari. Visits to the archipelago islands of Zanzibar and Mafia are also possible from Dar es Salaam.

The Authentic Tanzania Safaris offices are in Dar es Salaam, and we meet all our guests at the airport when you start your Tanzania safari adventure.

There are two official languages; Swahili and English, however there are more than 100 tribal languages spoken.

The time zone in Tanzania is GMT + 3 hours.
