Transfer in Tanzania
When we were little children, words like Zanzibar and Kilimanjaro probably seemed an abracadabra to us. But now we know that these are real places and they are located in Tanzania. The island of Zanzibar is famous for the best beaches in the country, and the house, where Freddie Mercury was born, is also located there. Kilimanjaro is the highest point in Africa and a potentially dangerous volcano.
Officially, Tanzania has two capital cities, but the historical and cultural center of the country is still Dar es Salaam. Here you can visit the National Museum of Tanzania, part of which is the village museum "Makumbusho", where you can get acquainted with the life of the indigenous population of the country. And, of course, you should definitely go on a safari in the famous Serengeti Savannah.
Taxi is the most convenient traveling option here. The usual public transport in Tanzania, represented by buses and minibuses, can only be found in large cities. In remote settlements, you can use only daladalas (a local analog of Asian tuk-tuk) and pick-up trucks. Taxi for foreigners in Tanzania has one nuance: each driver is required to obtain a permit to carry a foreign guest. The rule is strictly observed since every car with a "white" tourist is sure to be stopped by the police. If the driver does not have a permit, he has to pay a fine or the passenger has to get out of the car. No need to guess what the taxi driver would prefer. If the driver has not made a permit in advance, he or she will first take you to the office, and you will have to wait a few minutes for the document to be prepared.
Official taxi cabs in Tanzania are white with a green stripe and a circle in the middle of it, the license plate is also white. Each taxi must have a sticker indicating how many people this driver is allowed to carry. You should negotiate the price in advance and try to halve it. Note that the tariff on the popular route, to the foot of Kilimanjaro, can be extremely high.
However, with the Kiwitaxi transfers service, you do not need to think about all these difficulties, as you can order transfers to any place in Tanzania. A transfer should be booked not less than 48 hours before the trip. During this time our driver will make the safest and shortest route to the destination and will necessarily receive the permit for the transportation of foreign tourists. The driver will be ready to get you to the needed destinations without stops and delays. In addition, you do not have to worry about the cost of the trip. It will be written next to the description of the car after the booking. As soon as you book it, the cost of the service cannot be changed until the end of the trip.
