About Tanzania

This is probably one of the oldest known continuously inhabited areas on Earth; fossil remains of humans and pre-human hominids have been found dating back over two million years.

Approximately 38 percent of Tanzania's land area is set aside in protected areas for conservation.

Tanzania is highly biodiverse and contains a wide variety of animal habitats and is home to about 130 amphibian and over 275 reptile species.

The maximum weight limit for luggage is 20 kg for your Elewana SkySafari. Note that for scheduled flights a weight limit of 15 kg applies. Luggage should be packed in soft bags rather than in rigid suitcases. If you are travelling with more than 20 kgs of luggage, you can leave your extra luggage at Arusha Coffee Lodge at no extra charge and collect it after your safari. Note that all our Elewana properties provide a free laundry service which can help with the limited weight allowance. 

International Airlines do lose or mislay luggage from time to time so we suggest putting any essential items such as a change of clothes/malaria tables/chronic medication in your hand luggage too. 

Please read below our suggested ‘Packing List’. This is not an exhaustive list but is based on what our past guests have mentioned.
