Price Level
Tanzania is expensive for tourists. The government hasn't really figured out that tourism can be a blessing if controlled correctly. High prices are mainly due to excessive taxation of businesses as well as establishment costs. In everyday life just make sure that you have agreed on a price beforehand and don't pay until you have received your articles or arrived at your destination.

Two seasons play an important part: The short (from mid October to mid December) and the long rainy season (from mid March to mid May). The short rainy season is supposed to be less predictable than the long one but apparently things have changed a lot. Ten years ago one could set one's clock to the arrival of the long rainy season but nowadays it even skips a year or two causing drought and famine.
