The local unit of currency is the Tanzanian Shilling which these days is freely convertible within Tanzania for the U.S.$ and other currencies. There are numerous banks and bureau de change in towns, and most lodges and hotels will exchange currencys at reasonable rates.

It is not possible to obtain Tanzanian Shillings outside the country. Many items or services are priced and paid for in US dollars so do not convert more funds into the local currency than you need for incidental expenses.

Credit cards are accepted at an increasing number of establishments in Tanzania but not everywhere. It is not generally possible to obtain cash on a credit card in Tanzania, so it is recommended that visitors carry sufficient funds in the form of travelers cheques.


The Tourist areas and hotels sell a wide range of souvenirs, jeweler and trinkets. Don’t be afraid to haggle at roadside stalls( Your driver/ guide will guide you were to shop and advice you on the right price) the best known souvenirs are wood carvings, curios, and famous love stove which is a well known gem stone Tanzanite available widely at souvenirs shops.
