How safe is it to travel in Tanzania?

Tanzania is a safe and hassle-free country to visit, in general. Tourists will be safe in Tanzania as long as they travel with a local tour operator instead of opting to travel independently. It is advisable for visitors to take the precautions and follow all government travel advisories in order to avert any untoward incident while traveling in Tanzania. Incidences of terrorism are rare in Tanzania and general crimes like petty thefts, street mugging and bag-snatchings can be evaded by simply staying away from the crime hotspots. Avoiding secluded areas, traveling alone after dark, respecting the sense of local dress-up and carrying minimum cash or valuables while strolling around are some ways of staying safe in this wonderful country. Also, try not to use a bag-pack and use a taxi in the night time in the cities.

How safe is the water and food in Tanzania?

First and foremost, it is to be clear that food and water-borne illnesses can happen in any country that you travel. All you need to do is maintain a good level of personal sanitation while traveling and take some precautionary measures while consuming your food and drinking water.

For the most part, Tanzania’s food is safe to eat. However, it is advisable not to eat cold or pre-prepared foods and reheated food, for example in street stalls or hotel buffets. Likewise, drinking tap water is very unsafe in Tanzania. To avoid any kind of health hazards, we recommend drinking bottled, treated or filtered water. Using bottled water for brushing your teeth is also a beneficial option to stay away from any bacterial infection. We do not recommend eating raw fruits or vegetables that have not been peeled. Even if you eat some fruits, make sure to wash them properly with filtered or bottled water. The ice content in your drinks is not safe as well – you don’t know the source of the water used to make ice, so better stay off from it! It is best to avoid salads and eat your dairy products that are pasteurized.
