Tanzania: What to pack

Tanzania is a diverse destination in terms of landscapes, containing arid savannas, snow-capped mountains and sandy beaches. What to pack in your suitcase for Tanzania depends on whether you plan on a big game safari, a seaside getaway, or a climb on Mt. Kilimanjaro slopes. It is important to consider the specific activities you plan to do.

Here are several tips on packing for Tanzania trip:

• Pack a strong backpack for multi-day treks and a durable duffel bag for safaris since hard suitcases are unsuitable for transporting in safari jeeps. If neither is in your plans, obtain a sturdy suitcase that meets your needs in terms of size. If your bag does not come with padlock protection, buy a lock separately as luggage theft can be a problem in Tanzania.

• Carry a small handbag to store necessary travel documents and money. A money belt is also recommended for traveling anywhere in Africa. Unless you have checked your belongings into a reputable hotel, you will have to keep this safely on your person while traveling in Tanzania.

• Pack light loose cotton clothes, sunglasses, sunscreen, a swimming suit and a good hat. If you will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro, pack thermal underwear, a warm sweater and jacket, thick socks and durable hiking boots.

• Seal your toiletries within a small plastic bag to be stored either in your suitcase or handbag, depending on which items you wish to be easily accessible.

• Pack your camera gear in a protective case deep within your suitcase. For photographing wildlife in Tanzania, a 300mm telephoto lens is recommended.

Please note, to avoid extra carrying charges on the trip to Tanzania, ensure that the weight of your bag remains under 25 lbs.
