Travel Information


The country code for Tanzania is +255

There are quite a number of ISP'S and the major towns have many cyber cafes with Sat connections and reasonable rates. The Telecommunications sector is well established in Tanzania. The Telecommunication Services provided by Tanzania Tele Communications provide international direct dialing, subscriber trunk dialing, telex, facsimile, data communication and related services.

Most hotels in Tanzania and coastal region have international dialing facilitates from your bedroom. On safari this is not the case, but in some lodges and camps calls may be booked through reception. Check tariffs before placing calls from hotels.

The major towns have hotels to suit most budgets and tastes and there are rental homes, apartments, cottages and home stays where one can experience the real Tanzanian life first hand. Most hotels, lodges, resorts and tented camps offer conference facilities.
