Tanzania is an exciting and wonderful place, but traveling in the country is not for the faint of heart. For some, travel in this East African paradise can seem a bit daunting. But with a few of these travel hacks, you’ll be well on your way to the trip of a lifetime in this incredible country.
Most people in Tanzania communicate by phone, and if you need to reach someone, the best way is to give them a quick call. Emails can stay unread for weeks on end, so if you really want something done, pick up the phone. You can get all kinds of bundles that make text, calls and data cheap during your stay in Tanzania. To register a Tanzanian SIM card (for use in an unlocked phone), you will need a photocopy of your passport and can register at any mobile carrier shop. Be sure to ask them how to put a bundle on your phone while you’re there. You can buy vouchers for credit from any local kiosk — just tell them the name of your service provider and how much you want to buy.
