We asked expats how they chose their neighborhood and found a place to live. They answered...

"Finding a place to live in Tanzania can be a daunting task. It is important to research the area you are interested in living in and to consider your budget and lifestyle. You can start by looking online for rental listings, or by asking friends and family who may have connections in Tanzania. Additionally, you can contact local real estate agents who can help you find a suitable place to live. It is also a good idea to visit the area in person to get a better feel for the neighborhood and to make sure it is a good fit for you," wrote a member who made the move to Tanzania.
