Book your trip
You can leave home with euro and change your money in one of the many “bureau de change” in the town and at the airport.
You do your visa at the airport, as soon as you arrive. You will find a questionnaire on a desk in the entrance to the only room of the airport, which you need to fill in with all your personal details and other information on your stay in Tanzania. Put Nyumbani Residence and our contact details as your local destination. Once you have completed the questionnaire, you can go to the visa helpdesk and pay the 50 dollar fees, which you MUST PAY FOR WITH A CREDIT CARD AND NOT IN CASH (if you do not have a credit card, they will accept payment in cash but this may cause problems and discussions with the local authorities). Once you have paid for your visa, you move to the next desk, where they will take a digital photo of you and stamp your passport.
BED LINEN AND TOWELS
Bed linen and towels are provided by the facility and are changed every three days, unless requested otherwise.
We can organize the transfer from the airport to Jambiani, upon request. When you leave the airport, you will find one of our trusted taxi drivers with a card bearing your name, who will help you load your bags into the car before accompanying you to the facility.
Each transfer costs 50 dollars.
The apartment complex is around 100 metres from the beach, so you can walk there and, given that Jambiani village looks out onto the beach, it is all connected.
There are numerous small shops in Jambiani for grocery shopping and a couple of larger and better supplied stores.
The apartment complex offers a grocery shopping service.
When you arrive, you will be given pre-printed forms with all that you may need… fruit, vegetables, dry food…. You can hand in your shopping list to the manager in the evening and you will find everything ready the next morning.
The sockets are US type, so they can be used by Italian two-pin plugs and Schuko plugs.
The snorkelling equipment is supplied by the diving facilities that organize the various excursions off Jambiani.
