Sure, you’re going to see a brilliant array of wildlife and amazing culture during your Tanzania safari, but you may not realize just how incredible the shopping is as well! When it comes to African safari tours, those who are less outdoorsy may think that this isn’t really the vacation for them, but the accommodations and cultural opportunities offered by these sorts of adventures aren’t designed to only delight those who are passionate about rugged experiences! Shopping during your Tanzania safari can be an experience in and of itself, and we want to provide a few tips to make sure your experience is the best it can be:

  • How to pay – When it comes to what money to bring, and what credit to use, you’ll want to use the native currency of Shillings or US currency in bills dated 2003 or after. Bills dated earlier than 2003 may not be accepted by shops and store owners, so making sure to have bills dated later is a great way to prepare. If you plan to pay by credit, we recommend taking along your Visa card!
  • Where to shop – Tanzania has a vast and brilliant culture, and the local markets can provide souvenirs you’re not like to find anywhere else in the world. Gift shops and shops inside of your accommodations are where you can go to find your more standard souvenir, but if you’re looking for something unique, you’ll need to check out what the locals have to offer. Shopping in these local shops or from local markets also helps to boost the Tanzanian economy and improve the lives of the Tanzanian people.
  • What not to buy – You may see some interesting folk items made from endangered woods or animal products, and we don’t suggest buying these items for a multitude of reasons. Not only does it support the destruction of these natural resources, but bringing them home may provide you some trouble when going through customs.

Tanzania safari vacations aren’t only for the rugged and adventurous, and those looking for a luxury experience will be offered quite a bit by vacationing in Tanzania as well. If shopping is something that you love to do during your vacations, Tanzania provides a gorgeous and interesting experience if you consider a few tips to prepare!
