Tanzania is one of the safest countries in Africa and East Africa. We do, however, recommend that you engage the services of a guide if you want to explore the country, the city or the market, whether during the day or in the evening. They know their way around, they know the country, they speak the language and they can help you when you want to buy souvenirs or other items of your interest. Walking the streets alone and at night is not recommended. On any tour, it is always wise to listen to your inner voice, your intuition. Theft does happen in Tanzania. It is therefore advisable to protect your valuables at all times by using common sense precautions.
