Tanzania Filming Location.
Tanzania is one of the top filming locations in Africa and is rendered a paradise for filmmakers interested in shooting wildlife, snow-capped mountains of Kilimanjaro, sand beaches, people, and culture plus plantations for coffee, tea, and sisal. Northern Arusha is famous for wildlife and scenic filming. Filming locations in Northern Tanzania include Mountain Kilimanjaro, Serengeti National Park, Lake Manyara National Park, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, and Tarangire National Park. The Mara Region is best for those interested in shooting documentaries about the Maasai people.
Other top filming locations include Dar es Salaam, Pemba, Zanzibar, Dodoma, and Areas around Lake Victoria, where we find Rubondo Island National Park and Saanane Island National Park. Those interested in filming chimpanzees must consider visiting Gombe Stream National Park and Mahale Mountains National Park. Other National Parks include Katavi, Ruaha, and Selous Game reserve. Feel free to contact us about Tanzania filming locations.
Processing Tanzania Filming permits
Processing Tanzania filming permissions requires enough time and can be very expensive compared to other East African countries. You need to fill in all requirements and apply for your permit with our guidance as Tanzania Local fixers. Submit all original documents to your Tanzanian embassy or consulate to complete your application. Once this is done, forward them to us to enable us to finalize and process your filming permits with local authorities in Tanzania. Tanzania is a costly filming location, and a film license costs US$1,000 if applied three months in advance and US$3,000 if used on short notice. To avoid this, please contact us early enough (6 months in advance) so that we advise you accordingly. Further note that unauthorized filming can lead to confiscation of your filming equipment, fines, or imprisonment. Make sure you have the right permission all the time.
When is the best time to shoot in Tanzania?
Most parts of Tanzania enjoy a tropical climate with coastal areas which experience hot and humid weather. Filming in Tanzania can be done all year round but the rainy season of March to May should be avoided. Please contact us for more details about the best time to shoot documentaries in Tanzania.
Tanzania Filming Equipment and Kit customs Clearing
Tanzania has some basic filming equipment, but one can get some from the Neighboring country Kenya. We at Film Crew Fixers advise you to bring in your filming Equipment, and we will help in processing a temporary license for them. At the moment, the government does not offer any filming incentive, and customs fees to bring in a small kit can cost up to US$1500 or more. Please send us a list of your kit showing serial numbers of each and value to enable us to estimate what it will cost you to import your filming equipment into Tanzania temporarily. On arrival, our Fixer and Clearing agent will wait for you to assist with visa and customs. Contact us for details.
Processing Tanzania Visa and Work permits
You need a valid passport to be granted a visa to enter Tanzania. Tanzania Visa can be obtained on arrival at the point of entry or at any closest embassy. Proof of yellow fever is mandatory. Feel free to contact us for details.
