Tanzania is great all year round, especially between June and October when game viewing is at its best, but watch out for the main rainy season in April and May when glampers could possibly witness a proper African thunderstorm.

During the dry season, as water sources diminish and vegetation dries out, the wildlife has no option but to seek water at the limited water holes, guaranteeing a spectacular pageant of predatory action.

It is the responsibility of the traveler to obtain the necessary visas for their trip.

U.S. dollars are favored above Sterling, and most excursions, tips, drinks, and curios can be paid for in dollars.

Flights departing Zanzibar are subject to a departure tax of $46 per person for international flights and around $15 per person for internal flights. Flights from Kigali are subject to a departure tax of $40. These amounts must be paid locally in cash. All other taxes within Tanzania are prepaid.

Be kind to the environment and take care of the surroundings.

The Selous National Park is a superb safari destination for both family safaris and African honeymoons, and all the better for the ease of getting here and the lack of crowds. The park has the widest diversity of safari activities in the country, offering walking and boating safaris and fly-camping, as well as standard game drives. Game viewing in the Selous is fantastic, and it has a particular reputation as the last true stronghold for African wild dog.

The northern section of the Selous is home to a network of channels and lagoons that run off the Rufiji River. This lush landscape provides a water supply for the region’s game and towards the end of the dry season, the concentration of animals around these water sources is phenomenal. It is here, around the river and lakes, that the majority of the camps are based, successfully relying on the animals' need for water to provide game viewing areas.

To the northeast, glampers will find notable mountains and volcanoes including the biggest mountain in Africa, Kilimanjaro, as well as Mount Meru. Moving further west over part of the Rift Valley (Gregory Rift) is the Ngorongoro Crater. To the west of the Crater Highlands lies the world-renowned Serengeti National Park, home to the annual migration of millions of wildebeest.

Lake Victoria and Lake Tanganyika lie on two of Tanzania’s borders, whilst inland at the center of Tanzania is a large plateau where glampers will find one of the favorite wildlife areas, Selous National Park. To the east is the coast and Tanzania’s transport hub, Dar es Salaam, a gateway to the Zanzibar Archipelago in all its spiced glory.

The allure of Zanzibar often overshadows Tanzania's stunning mainland coast and other islands, leaving them beautifully uncrowded for travelers in the know. The beaches here are fabulous, generally deserted and offer good value for money. There is not much to do in many cases, but for those who would simply like to just relax and recharge in a glorious natural setting, a stay here at the beginning or end of a glamping trip is ideal.
