Can we get our Entry Visa on arrival?

Yes, for Tanzania and you can get a Entry Visa on arrival at the airport or at Namanga border ( between Kenya and Tanzania).

The cost are 50,- USD per person. It is wise to bring this in Cash USD.

You can also process you Visa with the Tanzania Embassies.


How do I proceed with my reservation and payment?

Once we agreed on a certain itinerary and the price, you will be asked to make a down payment on our bank account. Your booking will be confirmed upon receipt of this deposit, and we'll send you a confirmation e-mail. We shall then also proceed making the necessary reservations. The remaining balance is to be paid cash upon arrival in Tanzania. If you would prefer not to travel with Cash money, you can also pay the balance on our bank account. The balance has then to be paid our 45 days before start of the itinerary ( Bank transfer takes around 5 working days).

Best is still to bring cash USD. You'll get the best exchange rates for 50 and 100 USD notes. Also make sure not to bring USD notes older than 1990, as these are not accepted anymore in Tanzania.


Can we use Euro's in Tanzania?

Yes, the Euro can easily be exchanged into Tanzanian currency in the exchange bureau's. They can, however, not yet be used for payment of entry fees in the national parks or in shops. We therefore still require payments in USD.


Do we need travel insurance?

It is strongly recommended that all clients be individually insured. This travel insurance should cover personal accidents, medical expenses and repatriation, trip cancellation and loss of personal belongings. Make certain your insurer is aware of the type of travel you will be involved in.


How can we go from Arusha to Zanzibar?

There are several daily flights from Arusha or Kilimanjaro to Zanzibar, which we can book for you. It is also possible to fly directly from Serengeti to Zanzibar, with either scheduled flight or charter plane.


Can we leave excess luggage behind in a hotel whilst on a safari or trekking?

Yes, in most hotels you can leave your Kilimanjaro equipment behind whilst on safari, or your swimming suite whilst on the mountain. Of course this is only possible if you return to this hotel afterwards. There is also the possibility to leave luggage behind at our office.


Can we book our international flight with your company?

Unfortunately, as a Tanzanian touroperator, we cannot assist you for your international flight. There are different airline companies flying to Kilimanjaro airport, Dar-es-Salaam, Zanzibar or Nairobi. Some companies offer the possibility to arrive at Kilimanjaro or Nairobi airport, and depart from Zanzibar or Dar-es-Salaam. Here is a list of the main airline companies.

Onze droom / wens een bijzondere reis met onze kinderen maken, is uit gekomen.We hebben een hele bijzondere vakantie meegemaakt.Prachtige safari en een hele goede chauffeur en gids, egel-eye. Hij laat je de hele dag genieten en vele dieren zien, van klein tot groot alles zien zijn ogen!Onze kok die met ons mee reisde maakt dat we elke dag een perfecte maaltijden kregen. De fietstocht door het dorp Mto Wa Mbu Village kijken bij een bananenplantage, genieten van een locale lunch bij de mama's kijken in een locale school en bij de Masaai Boma maakte onze reis nog completer.Er is echt heel goed naar ons geluisterd en onze dromen zijn uitgekomen.Na de safari een aantal dagen naar Zanzibar, een geweldig hotel, vele excursies gedaan. Echt een kado dat we dit samen met ons gezin mochten beleven.We willen zeker een keer weer terug komen, African Heart, dan komen we zeker bij jullie terug! Vele complimenten aan jullie allemaal!

We have had THE most beautiful trip we could ever dream of! Our travel agents of African Heart made sure all our wishes and dreams came true during our trip to Tanzania.

As African Heart really knows Tanzania and the most beautiful places to see, they made sure our trip, our driver, and guide and all our lodges were absolutely wonderful!

We started at Lake Manyara where during the evening we were booked in a lodge which overlooks the lake. The next day we traveled to Serengeti for a 2-day stay, and our guide and driver made sure his nickname Eagle-Eye was proven to be true! He has shown us all the animals we had on our 'wish-list' and more and made sure we were able to enjoy them in private!!

Lake Victoria, the Ngororngoro Crater, and Zanzibar.. all amazing places to be!

The food during the trip was extremely well (lunch boxes, fab diners).

We will most certainly come back to Tanzania, and for us, there is only ONE tour agent for this: African Heart, where they know the country and really listen and act on your wishes!! Karibu Sana!!!

This has been THE best trip I have ever experienced! Our travel agents from African Heart have taken extremely well care of all the wishes we had by providing us a Top Class Driver and Guide, beautiful lodges to spend our nights in and a perfect variety of different parks.

They really know Tanzania and the places to see. Starting with Lake Manyara, spending the night overlooking the lake, Serengeti National Park, Lake Victoria, Ngorongoro Crater and ending our holiday at Zanzibar, each day was like a dream come true for us! African Heart made sure everything was perfectly organized; amazing animals, great trips, and very nice lunches during the day, splendid food during our diners!

Our guide (and driver) made sure we were given all the time to make the best pictures. His nickname Eagle-eye is certainly true and well-deserved! We will most definitely return again to Tanzania and for us, there is no other Tanzania-tour operator: African Heart! Karibu Sana!!

Een reis van mijn leven. Zo zou je het kunnen benoemen. In september 2016 heb ik deze reis mogen maken georganiseerd door African Heart Expeditions. We kregen een gids mee die alles zag. Het gedrag van de dieren kon voorspellen, en veel over de dieren wist. Alles was tot in de puntjes verzorgd. Naast de duidelijke briefing liep alles op rolletjes. Echt aandacht voor de klant, al voelde je je door hun geen klant meer.

Voor de reis was er regelmatig contact en al onze vragen werden beantwoord. Tijdens de safari was er niets te veel. Als hobby fotograaf kwam ik meer dan voldoende aan mijn trekken. Gegrepen door het tanzania virus heb ik besloten dit jaar weer te gaan. Een echte aanrader voor iedereen die van de natuur houd en van een organisatie die de persoonlijke aandacht nog hoog in het vaandel heeft.

We did a safari with African Heart,I wanted to write and tell you how pleased we were with our safari experience this week. We really had the most amazing time, our driver was outstanding, he showed us so many different animals and was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were even lucky enough to watch a lion hunting!We found the Burunge lodge absolutely luxurious and so peaceful, the food and facilities were second to none.CharlotteI would definitely recommend African Heart to anyone looking for a Tanzanian safari.
