I have received mixed info about getting visas on the border to Tanzania (single entry). Or should we arrange them before hand here in London.

Please help

Unless they have changed in the last year, you can get visas at the border crossings from Kenya. I don't know about other country border crossings. I don't think its any cheaper to get them at the border so if its easy to do, you might go ahead and get them before you leave.

I caught the TANZAR from Zambia to Tanzania and had no trouble getting a visa at the border.

I got my visa ahead of time. When arriving at Kilimanjaro airport on a BIG KLM plane, the line up of people WITH visas was actually longer than the line of people how needed to get a visa, so the people without visas were clearing out of customs faster than the people with pre-arranged visas. How's that for irony?
