For Tanzania, there are two associated plug types, types D and G. Plug type D is the plug which has three round pins in a triangular pattern and plug type G is the plug which has two flat parallel pins and a grounding pin. Tanzania operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz.

Hi We took a shower and put on some leisure clothes. Shorts and a short sleeved shirt. No fancy at all.

There was a hairdryer in the room. Wi-Fi is only in the lobby area which is a separate building from the one with the rooms. The bandwidth is only really good enough for doing emails

it was quite cold in some evenings, so bear than in mind. tropical strength jungle formula is highly recommended. on safari, black clothing/blue is not recommended. some insects can bite through cloth, so a close texture cloth (safari style) is good.
