Yes, most visitors to Tanzania require a visa. You can obtain a visa in advance from a Tanzanian embassy or consulate, or you can get a visa on arrival at the airport or border entry points. It's recommended to check the visa requirements and application process beforehand to ensure a smooth entry into the country.

Tanzania is generally considered safe for tourists, including safari-goers. However, it's always advisable to exercise caution and follow the guidance of your tour operator or guide. Be aware of your surroundings, listen to instructions, and take necessary precautions to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.

The duration of your safari depends on your interests and the specific areas you wish to visit. Many people opt for a 4- to 7-day safari, which allows for a good wildlife experience in multiple parks. However, it's also possible to extend your safari and combine it with other attractions, like the beaches of Zanzibar or cultural visits.

Tanzania is known for its diverse wildlife. On a safari, you can expect to see animals such as lions, elephants, giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, buffaloes, leopards, cheetahs, rhinos (in a few select areas), hippos, crocodiles, and a variety of antelope species. Birdlife is also abundant in Tanzania.

Tanzania offers a range of accommodations to suit different preferences and budgets. Options include luxury lodges, tented camps, mobile camps, and budget-friendly campsites. Some lodges and camps are located inside the national parks, while others are situated in private concessions adjacent to the parks.

The best time for a safari in Tanzania depends on what you want to see and experience. The dry season from June to October is popular as wildlife congregates around water sources. The wildebeest migration usually takes place from December to July. However, different parks have different peak seasons, so it's advisable to research specific regions and their seasonal patterns.

Essential items to pack for a Tanzania safari include lightweight and breathable clothing, comfortable walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent, binoculars, a camera, and any necessary medications. It's also advisable to pack layers for cooler mornings and evenings, as well as a waterproof jacket in case of rain.
