Tanzania Culture

Tanzania is full of welcoming and friendly locals, so it's best to return the favour and brush up on Tanzanian culture and traditions before you go. Not only will you show respect to the locals, but you'll get a much more authentic insight into the culture of this wonderful country. From greetings and public affection to dining and clothing etiquette, here are some common Tanzanian traditions, customs and handy tips to remember on your trip to Tanzania. Whether you're a seasoned or a first-time traveler, research forms a big part of any holiday planning. Similar to reading up about the best things to do and see, the weather and what to pack, it's always interesting to do some research into the cultural norms of the city or country you are visiting. Understanding a little bit about a culture also allows you to have a more immersive experience. So, here are 7 handy tips about the culture and etiquette in Tanzania.

Tanzanians consider elders as wiser and more knowledgeable and treat them with higher levels of respect than anyone else. There's no prescribed way of doing this, but be cognisant of your behaviour when interacting with elders.
