Lets talk cell phones & plans while in Tanzania

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone! I'm about 6 weeks away from an incredible 2 week safari in Tarangire, Serengeti, Ngorongoro Crater and Zanzibar!

While there, I'd like some connection to the outside world (ex: the USA). I've been doing tons of research on SIM cards and plans and I'm just a hot mess. I have an unlocked phone I'll be bringing with me and I don't know what to do for service.

I've been looking into the Telestial Passport SIM card which works in Tanzania (or so they say) and has some hefty charges of $0.49 a min to the USA. It also includes a USA incoming phone number at only $0.19 a min. Data is $10/MB (which is out of the question, as far as data is concerned.

Then I'm reading up that Vodacom SIM cards have dirt cheap USA calling prices as well as cheap data rates, however you can only get this card IN Tanzania when you land.

Has anyone used any of these services, or recommend anything better? Any ideas as far as this is concerned?
