Suggested Reading list for Tanzania

(Click on the book image below to go to to order.)

This is a great guide to the wildlife and parks to of Tanzania and East Africa. It has great maps and wildlife descriptions.

This is a very comprehensive guide to Tanzania. It will give you the history of the country and its people. The official language of Tanzania is Swahili. This guide contains basic words and greeting. Learning a few words of Swahili will really be appreciated by the local people. The guide also has sound advice on packing and health care.

This is the most widely used bird book used by East African Guides. It has maps, text and beautiful color plates. This is the only guide that I personally use.

This National Geographic tape will give you great insight to Ngorongoro Crater. There is no other place like it on earth. That said, it is one of the high points of any Tanzanian safari.
These books and tapes can be purchased or ordered at your local book store, or from
