"money" Tanzania Favorite Tip by HeidiR

Favorite thing: US dollars are the best thing to take. Yes you can withdraw money from the cash machines in a couple of the big cities but not all.
Best to take cash in big notes rather than travellers cheques. Smaller notes you get a worst exchange rate, likewise travellers cheques you get a worst exchange rate.
In Zanzibar good to have some dollar notes.
I didn't come across a single place that took credit card.
Are you going on a tour if so the tour bus may not give you enough time to get to the cash machines in the big cities.
Dont forget you will need cash at the airport to pay for your visa. (US dollars are best)
I will be writing by Tanzania page in the next few days/weeks
