Tanzania: How to Travel on a Budget

By  |  0 Comments

You don’t need to have a five figure salary to travel and explore the world. If one of your new year resolutions was to travel more, yet you are in the entry level salary bracket, here are five suggestions on how to travel to Tanzania on a budget.

1. Travel as a group

Travelling as a group will not only be fun, but will also be more cost efficient. It is like buying things on wholesale. In addition, most villas offer self catering services which in most cases, is cheaper and more convenient than dining at a hotel’s restaurant. The House of Changes Resort, located in Tunguuu, is an example of a budget friendly villa in Tanzania.

2. Go Backpacking

One of the most adventurous activities as you travel around the world is backpacking. Travel to Tanzania and enjoy backpacking in scenic locations such as the Ngorongoro Crater and the Usambara Mountains. Some hotels in Tanzania such as the Kilimanjaro Backpackers Hotel and 5 Tanzanite House have been specifically designed to accommodate backpackers.


3. Take Advantage of Jumia Travel’s Promotional Codes and Discounts

Apart from the fact that Jumia Travel guarantees its customers of the best prices in the market, it regularly hands out amazing deals and discounts. Be sure to check out #WednesdayDreamDeals that runs every week from Wednesday to Friday, for top deals of the week.

4. Eat at Local Street Food Stands

Everyone who has been Tanzania will most probably tell you about their mouth watering foods. Nothing beats the experience of real Tanzanian street food. The Forodhani Gardens in Stone Town is one of the most popular spots to enjoy food in the open. Indulge in Swahili delicacies such as mahamri, mshikaki and of course biryani.

5. Get Around in Public Means

Getting around in public means such as bodabodas or buses will sure save you some extra bucks. Before you catch a bus, ask the patron at the hotel you were staying at on rates and recommended bus stations. Since Tanzanians are generally friendly people, if you are one of the lucky ones, you might even get a free guide from the bus driver.

Start planning for that trip to Tanzania now. Wishing you all the best.
