This book is an essential when travelling in Tanzania. I love Lonely Planet guides in general but this one was particularly good. I followed their suggestion about 2 weeks route passing by Zanzibar and Northern circuit. I had a time of my life!

As always Lonely Planet did not let me down. However, there is no way to navigate Africa with just a guidebook. This was the first trip where I used a tour guide to plan the trip. I used the guidebook and online resources to double-check the itinerary and accommodations. Until I was here I thought I was taking the easy way out - being here confirmed it was the right choice. Getting what you are promised is not easy and having a tour company make the booking gives you more of a chance. Hotels and ...more

I am a big fan of Lonely planet book, and this Tanzania travel guide was my first. It was so useful in my trip that from then on i became a big fan of lonely planet book. One of the things i love the most was the budget sections. I was traveling on a budget and the last night i decided to pay for a good hotel. Everything so easy to find thanks to this book.

Very helpful for selecting tours and for finding the best wildlife experience. We watch birds so we often like to go to the places where you can find the most species. We ended up on a tour with Natural Habitat Adventures but this helped select short side trips and hotels.

This has become my number one favorite to dip into each evening & morning. Exciting, exciting to look forward to the Colley/Yoon safari. I have learned about the colors to wear, basically drab, but no camo because it's banned in the country. ...more

Ok guide, but not as accurate (Pare mountain lodge)

I enjoyed the guide while I was traveling in Tanzania. In general, I prefer Fodor's Guides, as they offer more detail, but this was still helpful for basic background.

Best is mostly find out things on your own! Hostel reviews were often out-dated, fees inadequate....

This book is geared for the safari and mountain climbing trekkers, which seems to be the bulk of Tz tourists. If you're doing other things or traveling to more rural areas, it's less helpful.

A beat-up old car, a few dollars in the pocket and a sense of adventure. In 1972 that’s all Tony and Maureen Wheeler needed for the trip of a lifetime – across Europe and Asia overland to Australia. It took several months, and at the end – broke but inspired – they sat at their kitchen table writing and stapling together their first travel guide, Across Asia on the Cheap. Within a week th
