While many visitors come to Tanzania primarily for wildlife experiences, they often depart with a broader and deeper understanding. Why? A significant part of this is attributed to our amicable, hospitable, and diverse populace. Tanzanians encompass various ethnicities and religious beliefs, coexisting harmoniously, making Tanzania one of Africa's safest destinations.

The primary language of Tanzania is Swahili, spoken by the majority of our population. Additionally, we boast a diverse array of over 100 tribal languages! Thankfully, English is prevalent in major urban centers and areas frequented by tourists. At Shammah Wonders Safaris, our driver guides are proficient in multiple languages including English, French, Spanish, Italian, and German. When making reservations with us, please indicate your preferred language for our guides.

Whether you aim to ascend Kilimanjaro or cross off an African Safari from your list of dreams, we're thrilled to assist you in planning.

Reach out to us today with your particular preferences, and our team of Tanzania experts will craft a customized itinerary that will exceed your expectations.

We eagerly anticipate your arrival!

Typically, the Tanzanian dry period commences in early June and extends until late October. Subsequently, the 'short rains' arrive from late October or early November until mid to late December. Following this, there's a break from late December to mid-March, after which the 'long rains' set in from the end of March to May.

Naturally, climatic patterns may fluctuate annually, so it's essential to be ready for any eventuality.

Certainly. Given its tropical climate, Tanzania naturally hosts mosquitoes. Prior to visiting, it's advisable for travelers to seek guidance from a healthcare professional well in advance, as antimalarial medication typically needs to be initiated before arrival. It's recommended to carry mosquito repellent and dress in neutral or khaki-colored clothing. Certain lodgings may offer mosquito-prevention measures like mosquito nets or spraying repellent in sleeping areas.

Numerous airlines operate direct routes to Tanzania, with frequencies ranging from daily to thrice weekly. Carriers offering nonstop flights include KLM, Ethiopian Airlines, Kenya Airways, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, Condor Charter Flight, and RwandAir, which serve Kilimanjaro International Airport. Additionally, airlines such as Emirates, South African Airways, Etihad Airways, and EgyptAir offer daily flights to Dar es Salaam International Airport.

The majority of lodgings will readily take credit cards. However, if you prefer cash transactions, it's advisable to utilize US Dollars. Please be aware that US Dollar banknotes dated before 2009 are not accepted. For credit card payments, either MASTERCARD or VISA are recommended.

While we understand the inclination to show kindness and establish connections with community members, it's not advisable to distribute gifts randomly. If you wish to make a donation or present gifts, please inform us, and we can arrange this for you. Additionally, we can offer guidance on suitable gifts or donations.

Accommodation options vary depending on the nature of your trip. For instance, Kilimanjaro treks offer limited choices compared to lavish retreats in Zanzibar.

Nevertheless, Tanzania caters to all budgets, offering options from budget-friendly to luxurious accommodations.

At Shammah Wonders Safaris, our safaris feature four accommodation styles tailored to your preferences and budget: Basic, Comfort, Comfort Plus, and Luxury.

We exclusively collaborate with top-tier accommodations within each category. Basic accommodations are situated on public campsites with shared restroom facilities. In the other three categories, accommodations boast private bathrooms. These rooms are spacious, equipped with either twin or king-size beds, a vanity, and a wardrobe for luggage storage. Lodges and tented camps within the National Parks utilize generators for power. It's worth noting that while some accommodations provide 24-hour access to hot showers, others offer hot showers only during specified times in the morning and evening.

The domestically brewed beer is of high quality, with options such as Serengeti, Safari, and Kilimanjaro. For a unique experience, you can also sample mbege (a homebrew from the Chagga community) or banana beer. Imported beers are also exceptional, with the Tusker Kenyan variant being particularly popular among our favorites.

If your financial resources were unlimited, you might opt to include both of these destinations in your East Africa safari excursion. However, for many travelers, a decision must be made between the two. Numerous visitors are particularly eager to witness the Great Migration during their journey, making the selection of the destination country crucial. The migration spends eleven months of the year in Tanzania, with only September seeing the herds crossing the Mara River and venturing into the Maasai Mara, located in Kenya. Even during this month, thousands of wildebeest opt to remain in the Northern Serengeti, Tanzania, grazing instead of crossing the river. Additionally, when deliberating your choice, it's worth considering that the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania has been honored with the prestigious 'Best African National Park' award at the World Travel Awards for three consecutive years (2019, 2020, and 2021).

We frequently receive inquiries regarding family safaris, and the majority of children thoroughly enjoy their safari experience, provided they are old enough to fully appreciate this extraordinary holiday opportunity.

There's nothing quite like being in close proximity to our magnificent wildlife, far surpassing the experience of watching it on television or simply reading about it in books.

At Shammah Wonders Safaris, we can offer guidance on child-friendly accommodations and ensure that your family is provided with suitable lodging. However, it's important to be realistic. Safaris entail extensive driving across rugged terrain, and we do not recommend safari trips for children under the age of 3.

Tanzania witnesses two periods of rainfall, known as the 'long rains' from late March to May and the 'short rains' from late October or early November to mid-December.

All travelers are required to acquire sufficient travel insurance before embarking on their journey to Tanzania. Insurance plans must offer extensive coverage, including medical evacuation, trip cancellation, arrangement curtailment, and baggage loss, for any unforeseen circumstances.

Situated in East Africa, Tanzania is surrounded by the Indian Ocean to its Eastern side, endowing us with the allure of Zanzibar.

To the North of Tanzania lie Kenya and Uganda, while Rwanda, The Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Burundi can be located to the west. To the South of Tanzania are Zambia, Malawi, and Mozambique.

There are multiple methods of reaching Tanzania, but typically, you'll arrive by air at Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam (640 kilometers, or a 2-hour flight from Arusha City), or at Kilimanjaro International Airport (a 45-minute drive from Arusha City).

Tanzania is in the GMT+3 time zone, which signifies that there's no time variance between their summers and winter seasons.

There are no certainties when it comes to wildlife sightings, but our driver-guides are dedicated to locating the ‘Big 5’ and an array of other captivating species. You'll undoubtedly have a high probability of encountering the Big 5, contingent upon the selection of parks included in your itinerary. For instance, if your aim is to witness a black rhinoceros, it's advisable to incorporate Ngorongoro into your schedule.

Our wildlife is abundant, ensuring you'll never experience a dull moment. With over 35 species of large mammals, alongside numerous captivating smaller creatures and a remarkable array of insect life, there's always something to marvel at. Additionally, Tanzania boasts well over one thousand bird species and a plethora of intriguing reptiles.

While there are no guarantees of sightings, a typical game drive might include spotting the iconic African elephant, zebra, buffalo, giraffe, hippopotamus, olive baboons, and impressive big cats such as lion, leopard, and cheetah. Keep an eye out for jackals and hyenas as well. Moreover, in the otherworldly Ngorongoro Crater, you might have the fortune of glimpsing a rare black rhinoceros.

The most enriching aspect is not merely observing these animals, but also gaining invaluable knowledge about them from our expert driver guides.

And as for the vultures... well, you'll spot those on your own.
