When hiring a car in Tanzania, you will need to be 21 years or older to apply at most car hire agencies. You will need a valid driving licence and your passport details when applying for it, as well as your debit/credit card to pay the service fees. You may be able to hire a car when you are under 21 but there will be additional fees you will have to pay due to your age. You will also need to carry all contracts and paperwork for the hired car on you at all times when driving as well as your driving licence and passport with relevant visas.
Driving is on the left-hand side.The minimum driving age is 18 years. Seat belts are mandatory for the driver and passengers in the front seat. Motorcycle helmets are required for all riders as well as liability insurance. The permitted blood alcohol level in the country is 0.08%. The speed limit in urban areas is 50 km/h (31 mph), outside urban areas it is 80km/h (50 mph). The original driving licence you received will be enough to allow you to drive around Tanzania if it is in English. If it isn't, it will have to be officially transcribed by your embassy if you would like to use it. But you will only be allowed to do this for six months and after that you will need to re-do your driving licence in Tanzania in order to continue to drive. It is best to contact the Dar es Salaam motor vehicle authorities for recent law changes.
Due to the state of the road networks in Tanzania, it will always be advantageous to have an off-road vehicle like a 4X4, but a 2X4 will also be okay when looking for car hires, as it will have the durability and speed needed on the highway and a small amount of off-road capabilities when this may be necessary. But then again, if you are only hiring a car to drive around the city then you wouldn't need such a big vehicle and could go with something smaller and more compact, which would also cost less in the end.
When trying to figure out where to park your hired car at night, it always depends on your reason for being in the country. If you have booked a hotel or lodge to stay at then you'll be able to park there. If you're visiting friends or family, you can leave the car there. Otherwise, you should be able to park your car in the street and if there really is nowhere else to park your car, there is always the option to drop it off at the car hire agency overnight.
