You would need an address of a hotel to fill in your landing document and telephone number of your hotel.

The embassy would have asked you to show them your booking unless you were lucky.

When you arrive, don't take a taxi from the airport. Go to the main road ( 5 minutes walk) and stop a taxi there. You will pay 50% less.

Tell him to take you to starlight hotel or econolodge, it's in the heart of the city and $25 -30 a night. Or you can go to jamhuri street (where econolodge is) and chose other hotels of the same range. Many poor European tourists stay there too. They also have restaurants selling delicious BBQ chicken and fries.

Re: Tanzania Flight From Lagos by Tokyo50: 3:46pm On Sep 11, 2015
So as you know, they have elections in October . I would not go to any African country during their elections.

You can never know what might happen . Many Tanzanians, especially Indian and Arab descent, leave during the elections. Some European and American government has warned their citizens to be cautious and avoid visiting it, if possible, during October.

I am very grateful for your advise especially on the hotel actually I did the visa through a friend who happens to be an agent so as to av an international travel experience before applying for better countries abroad......I will prefer dat starlight hotel cos its less costly compared to others av seen online but let me still make some more research seems some of them normally do hotel pick directly as soon as I land because incase the flight got in late at night I may not wnt to take the risk of going to the main road at night.
But if u dnt mind let me ask dis question av u been to Tanzania before? Ama first timer oo grin grin

I have been to Tanzania, yes.

Starlight hotel is cheap and clean. The street is called Libya Street. This street has many bed and breakfast hotels. The other b&b hotels are near Zahir Restaurant on Jamhuri street.

Here, you are in downtown. There is really not much to do though. You can catch a $40 boat ride not far from Libya street, to Zanzibar Island. It is a one hour ride.

If you want to go to the beach, oysterbay beach is 10 minutes away from your hotel .

You can eat, drink and talk to the locals there. You can also go night clubs such as bilicanas.

If you want to go to beach resorts outside the city, you can head to Bahari Beach or white sands. It's 50 km from the city and you can enjoy the breeze. They charge $10 entrance fee if you are not sleeping.

Near oysterbay beach, msasani, where rich people and diplomats live, you can go to upscale restaurants like sea cliff.

They have three wheelers around oysterbay beach, if you wish to hire them to take you around popular places in msasani.

Personally, I would wait and see the outcome of the election results. It is a very tight race and for the first time since independence, an opposition party might win it. I don't know how the country will be, if violence break out.

Also, you don't need to use an agent to secure Tanzania visa . It is a simple procedure to get it.

No bed & breakfast hotel will pick you up from the airport . Those that do are 3-5 star hotels and normally charge you .

Getting a taxi is not an issue , any time of the day. Change some money at the airport and prepare to hussle for the price. It should not cost you more than $35 to go to downtown , 25 km away.

Kilimanjaro is up country, 5 hours by road from Dar. I would not use that route because Dar has more reckless drivers on two lane highway than Lagos. I would fly instead.

Be prepared to pay tourist prices in Arusha. Kilimanjaro is all about climbing the mountain ($1500 average price , 5-9 days) or safari parks ($100 entrance). The view at ngorongoro crater is amazing and priceless. You will be standing where the first known humans are thought to have come from.
