Dress & Appearance at the coast
The coastal part of Tanzania is predominantly Muslim who have a relatively conservative dress code. Which means tight cloths, shorts, etc are considered inappropriate everywhere except at the beach. Going topless or nude at the beach is strictly prohibited
When visiting someone’s home it’s common behaviour to remove your shoes at the entrance unless your host advises otherwise.
Avoid public displays of affection they are generally frowned upon.
Tipping is not a common practice but in the more exclusive establishments its an acceptable practice
While at the coast or in the north eastern regions it does get very hot so make sure you have plenty of bottled water to avoid dehydrating. As well always make sure you carry sunglasses and sunscreen with you.
While at the Lake Region watch out for mosquitoes. Protect yourself well against malaria
In the urban centres always avoid the people who approach you and make you offers on rolex watches, jewellery etc just smile and walk away
Safety & Security
In matters security Tanzania is no exception especially in the big cities. Crime is real but if you exercise basic caution and vigilance you should be okay. While in the city centre avoid items which may draw attention to you such as expensive jewellery. When carrying cameras and the like have it concealed and only take it out when you are taking the photos. In the rural areas things are very calm, crime is low in these parts
