Tanzania 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.
