Anyone with recent Tanzania customs experience?

Looking for recent, first hand experience with how Tanzania customs is handling travelers bringing in food items. My wife and i are on restricted diets and i will need to bring some snack items with me for while we are in the bush. Anybody have items confiscated or allowed recently? Please share as I am leaving in two weeks. Thank you.

Iím in Tanzania now. We flew into Dar Es Salaam and customs was no problem. While we did not bring any food in, no one asked or looked in our bags. You do however have to put your bags through x-ray machine. No different than many countries which require putting luggage through the machine when entering. Hope this helps.

Thanks laurieco. did you happen to notice if many folks were giving stuff up or many bags asked to be opened? i'm flying into Kilimanjaro so don't know if it might be different but any info appreciated.

I didnít notice anyone having to open bags nor did I see anything confiscated. That doesnít necessarily mean it doesnít happen but customs officers did not look particularly interested. Our flight arrived at about 2:15 am so maybe that was a factor. In any case, you will love Tanzania and will have a great time!
