Electricity in Tanzania

Hand holding a three-pin plug as used in TanzaniaTanzania is powered by a 250V, 50 cycles, AC network. Those bringing electrical items from home may wish to invest in a power breaker: Tanzania’s electricity supply can be erratic on occasions, and power surges could seriously impair the efficacy of your electrical instruments, if not melt them altogether. Plugs and sockets vary in style, though by far the most common are the British three-square-pin sockets; European two-round-pin style sockets are a distant second now.
