Information about staying in Tanzania

Read these important travel tips before booking a hotel in Tanzania

Arusha is one of the major cities you should explore and consider staying in when in Tanzania. It is located at the foot of Mount Meru and is popular for its Safari Circuit. This busy city is home to old colonial buildings, modern conveniences, markets, and amazing hotels in Tanzania like the Green Mountain Hotel and Tulia Hotel and Spa. The architecture and history of this city come from its history of Maasai to German to British and back to Tanzania occupation. Alternatively, you could visit Zanzibar, which is located on an island in the Indian Ocean. The tropical and humid climate coupled with the coconut palms gives the right ambiance for a good stay in Tanzanian hotels in the city like DoubleTree by Hilton Zanzibar – Stone Town and Freddie Mercury Apartments. The city offers its tourists transportation shuttles and taxis to get to various sites and attractions. If you want to enjoy the scenery on a budget, find cheap hotels in Tanzania, Zanzibar, like the Dalma Lodge and Zenji Hotel.

If you want to enjoy the game drives and climbing tours, staying in hotels in Tanzania is the right choice. Tanzania has a lot of attractions that offer tourists a range of activities, such as hiking, camping, game drives, bush meals, horseback riding, balloon safaris, cycling, national museum, and nature and wildlife tours. You could visit a national park like the popular Kilimanjaro National Park, which you will access at a daily fee. Get ready to enjoy climbing the dormant but not extinct volcano known as Mount Kilimanjaro. Additionally, you could camp on its various routes, such as the Marangu, Lemosho, and Machame routes, for a fee. The park is bustling from January to February and August to September. You will not have to worry about getting a place to stay near the National Park because Mount Kilimanjaro View Lodge is located close to the park. You will have access to the onsite spa bath and airport shuttle services. The Shimbwe Meadows Guest House is also located close to the park in Moshi and is a good option if you are traveling with kids.

There is more to Tanzania than the safari tours and vast vegetation cover. If you want to have a good time and enjoy the nightlife during your vacation, you should book hotels in Tanzania’s Dar es Salaam. Dar es Salaam has a vibrant nightlife that accommodates people who want to party all through the night, those who want a calm setting, or those who want to enjoy casino services. If you book hotels in Dar es Salaam, you will be able to get to popular nightclubs such as Kilimanjaro Casino, Level 8, Havoc Nightspot, Element, The Slow Leopard, Waterfront Sunset Restaurant and Beach Bar, and the Jozi Lounge. Suppose you are looking for cheap hotels in Tanzania’s Dar es Salaam. In that case, you could consider the Kanyi Kg2 and Kg3 Perfect Apartments near the beach. Furthermore, before you dive into the nightlife, you could enjoy the Tanzanian cuisine that includes seafood, Italian, pizza, vegetarian, Chinese, African, American grill, Halal, and Middle Eastern cuisine.

Dar es Salam and Zanzibar have many monumental historical and cultural sites to visit. If you enjoy looking at art and visiting historical sites, you could book hotels in Tanzania in these cities like the Harbour View Suites and Hyatt Regency in Dar es Salaam. You will be able to visit attractions such as the National Museum and House of Culture, Village Museum, Askari Monument at a fee, or the Nafasi Art Space, which has free entry. Alternatively, you can stay in Zanzibar, where you can enjoy Stone Town with attractions such as the ancient iconic buildings by Europe, India, Persia, and Arabia. The Maru Maru Hotel located within Stone Town will give you access to amazing offsite attractions at a fee like the Forodhani Gardens and Slave Market Museum. The best time to visit these attractions is July to October especially for the national parks since it will be easier to spot wildlife and it coincides with the migration river crossings.

If you are looking to save a few dollars on your hotel room in Tanzania, consider visiting the country in November as it is the least expensive month at just $58 per night. Avoid booking a hotel room in March if you are looking for a deal; it is the most expensive month.

Out of all the tourist destinations in Tanzania, our data shows that travelers tend to visit Zanzibar more often than any other city.

At $98 per night, Kendwa is the most expensive city in Tanzania to book a hotel room in. The average cost of $98 is about 68% above the country's average price per night.

If you are traveling to Tanzania on a budget, plan to stay in Arusha which boasts the lowest average hotel room cost in the country. Charging about 67% lower than the country’s average, hotel room rates in Arusha are typically around $10 per night.
