A number of Tanzanian transportation options exist for getting around in, and between various Tanzanian destinations:
By far your best bet for negotiating the busy streets of the big cities is by taxi cab. 2.5 US $ will cover most short trips, and drivers usually know where they’re headed. Taxis are more expensive at the beach resorts and major cities although ultimately what you pay depends on your bargaining technique. Some service taxis operate between cities where several travellers can share the same fare.
Surprisingly there are a growing number of adventurous travellers who choose to criss cross much the country by bike, our company can arrange mountain bikes for hire. – Please contact us for more details..
Several bus companies provide a number of handy routes that link the big cities to just about everywhere else in the country. Journeys can often take several hours longer then scheduled due to hold ups at police check points and flat tyres on the roads. Please contact us for advice on which bus company to use in relation to cost and safety.
A ferry service links Tanzania mainland with Zanzibar Island and takes just one and a half hours (although this varies). The same journey by plane will take a minimum of 1 hour.
If you’re short of time or simply love planes you can easily and cheaply fly from different parts of Tanzania with local small planes .
