Important information

3 Main Attractions: Mount Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti, the Selous

Culture Norms: When meeting and parting, hands are always shaken; this applies throughout the country in both rural and urban areas. It is the convention to use the right hand, not the left, to shake hands or pass or receive anything. The standard greeting of 'hello' is jambo. Dress is on the whole casual but a smart appearance for formal occasions such as a business meeting or upmarket restaurant is always appreciated. The coast is a little more conservative, and away from the beach it is advised to dress respectably and cover up arms and legs. English and Swahili are the official languages.

Prices of Necessities: Bottle of water –0.9 $, coffee –2.5 $, average restaurant meal for 2 persons –16.0 $

Emergency Numbers: Police: 111 Ambulance: 111 Fire brigade: 111
