The country of Tanzania has plenty of tourist attractions. Though most of the cities are generally underdeveloped, it has abundant natural reserves, plenty of exotic wildlife, good number of beaches, parks, lakes and mountains. In Rungwe District region of Mbeya, the city of Katumba is not so much of a tourist hotspot but there are still a noticeable number of people that take cheap flights to Katumba yearly because of its serene surrounding, tranquil community and lovely residents.
Like other places in Tanzania, Katumba is a generally safe place with a very small crime rate but one still needs to exercise caution especially when visiting the place for the first time to avoid untoward incidents. Below are some of the most practical tips to ensure a safe and enjoyable trip.
There are no known hotels in Katumba so make it a point to book for a room in Mbeya or in other nearby cities beforehand. A chance of having a guesthouse or decent inn is also slim so make sure not to take a chance if you don’t want to be stranded in the city.
