Tourism in Tanzania is making progress every single year. Only Serengeti has between 150 and 200 thousand visitors every single year. However, we believe that the numbers would be bigger in two cases.
First of all, we all have a list of places that we want to visit during our lifetime, right? Well, in most cases, places like Great Britain, France, US are on the top of that list. However, the facts confirm that the structure of those travel lists is slowly changing. Tanzania is becoming one of the most attractive destinations in the world. We are glad that people become aware of the beauty that this country brings.
Besides that, the second reason why people do not travel more to Tanzania is the budget. If money is the problem, then you won’t be able to travel a lot. Because of that, you should know that visiting Tanzania doesn’t require a huge amount of money. Of course, if you are financially stable, then spending a lot won’t be a problem.
Still, we would want to provide you with some helpful pieces of advice. They will reduce the costa that you could potentially have in this country.
So, let’s get started.
Find the Right Travel Agency
Okay, this is something that maybe sounds like a basic piece of advice. Yet, we believe that many people do not spend a lot of time to find the best offers. They usually check one or two agencies online and if they do not like the price, they give up from traveling to Tanzania.
You need to be more persistent and look for different offers. For example, on TanzaniaBudgetSafari, you will find many attractive and affordable offers. Yet, you do not have to worry. The quality of your trip won’t reduce because of that. More precisely, you will have a great safari experience.
Spend Your Nights in a Camp
Well, it is not a secret that you can find a wide range of hotels in Tanzania. This especially counts when you look at the places near the most attractive destinations. These hotels might ensure your comfort. However, they will also ensure you some high costs. If you want to save money, then there is an alternative that you should use.
Why should you spend the night in a camp? Many tented camps around Tanzania are welcoming people around the world. Yet, there is something you should know as well. You can also find camps that come with hot water baths and quality bathrooms. There might be some things that you will miss. However, that doesn’t mean you won’t be satisfied. Despite that, you are saving money, aren’t you?
Besides everything, these tented camps are a lot better choice if you ask us. If you are willing to see the wildebeest migration, then staying in a hotel won’t give you a full experience. When you are in nature, you will have the chance to follow the migrations of the animals in every moment.
Do not Travel during the Peak Season
Well, we completely understand if you are willing to travel during the peak season. Most of people like to visit attractive places when they are full of people. Despite that, we can’t use the holiday in all parts of the year. Our free time is limited because of our work.
However, if there is a chance to do something like that, then we strongly recommend you travel in the off-peak season. If you are planning to research the offers for that part of the year, look for “green” or “low” season offers. Many travel agencies put those offers under that name.
Anyway, we need to say that some safari activities won’t be able during the off-peak season. For example, a balloon safari is one of the activities that is not possible because of the weather. Yet, that doesn’t mean you won’t spend an amazing time.
For example, the parks in Tanzania are quite beautiful and you will have the chance to visit them. Keep in mind that many people will not be around in that period of the year. Enjoying in empty parks of Tanzania is one of the most beautiful moments you experience during life.
Logically, the prices during the off-peak season are more affordable.
Consume Local Cuisines
Logically, you will have to eat while you are in Tanzania. However, you can pick different meals that will help you save money. For example, if you go by an agency, then meals will be part of the package. Of course, we do not know which agency you will use. However, if the prices of the meals seem too expensive, you can always opt for local cuisines instead.
Despite that, visiting local restaurants can be a quite entertaining thing. You won’t just go through a culinary journey. You will also start to understand the culture of Tanzania people in the best possible way. Meeting new cultures is the main purpose of traveling.
Travel between Destinations by Road
If you Googled Tanzania, then you know how huge this country is. Despite that, it has a huge number of destinations that you would want to visit. Because of the lack of time, people rather choose to go through Tanzania by plane. Logically, a plane ticket is expensive. It will be a problem for people without money to travel by plane from one park to another.
However, you have a more affordable alternative. It is much better to travel by road. It would be great if you can hire a driver. Despite that, this way of traveling will allow you to get a better view of the beautiful places in this country.
Get a Local SIM Card
You will surely need to call people or log in to your social media. Well, if you want to avoid additional costs, the solution is in buying a local SIM card. You won’t have to travel around to find one. You can find them immediately after you come to the airport. They are not expensive and you won’t have to spend more than 1-2 dollars.
P.S. The network in entire Africa is not strong all the time. Yet, in most cases, you will be able to get a stable connection.
