What is the currency in Tanzania/Zanzibar?

Tanzania Shillings (TSH), which can not be obtained until arrival in Tanzania/Zanzibar. It is best to take US$ cash to change in to TSH.

We advise against credit card payment as most hotels charge quite high commission, up to 10 percent. US$ and £Sterling are accepted at banks & Forex to change in to TSH but not widely accepted for payment at hotels.

When you book with us, with your final information, we provide you with information about money matters, the best way to pay for extras at hotels, etc.
