Tanzania

Tanzania has been our passion for a very long time. It remains a truly exciting country to visit, with some of the best safaris in all of Africa. The wildlife is thriving, the landscapes are stunning, its Indian Ocean islands are breath-taking. Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa, bordered by Kenya and Uganda to the north; Rwanda, Burundi, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the west, and Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique to the south.

Languages

There are many languages spoken in Tanzania, but no one language is spoken natively by a majority or a large plurality of the population. Swahili and English are the official languages; however the former is the national language.

Climate

Tanzania has a tropical climate but has regional variations due to topography. In the highlands, temperatures range between 10 and 20 °C (50 and 68 °F) during cold and hot seasons respectively.

Visa

Travellers to Tanzania require a valid Visa each time they enter the Republic.The granting of a Tanzanian Visa is, in effect, only a form of pre-entry clearance. It does not guarantee permission to enter Tanzania.

 

Health

Health care in Tanzania is available depending on one’s income and accessibility. People in urban areas have better access to private and public medical facilities.

Tanzania faces a “mature”, generalized HIV epidemic. Among the 1.4 million people living with HIV/AIDS, 70.5 percent are 25 to 49 years old, and 15 percent are 15–24 years. In young women ages 15 to 24, there is an HIV prevalence rate of 3.8 percent, which is significantly higher than the 2.8 percent prevalence rate among young men in the same age group. More than half of available hospital beds are occupied by HIV-infected persons
