How about cell phone usage in Tanzania?

Cell phone coverage in Tanzania, even in the remote areas where we have our camps and lodges may pleasantly surprise you. However, we recommend that you switch off your roaming service while in East Africa to avoid the high costs that can accumulate running background updates.

There is coverage in and around all our properties but it may not be available in your room or tent – as we build our guest rooms to nestle into the natural lie of the land. Whilst on game drives we recommend that you switch your phone to aeroplane mode to preserve your battery life. “Searching” for signal as you move between areas of coverage drains phones quicker than you think.
