Some maps of Kenya and Tanzania maps may be found in bookstores at home, but the same maps can usually be bought at a lower price when you have arrived in East Africa. You may find them in roadside souvenir shops, and park maps are often found in shop at the park gates.

Hoopoe's maps of Tanzanian parks
Hoopoe has a number of maps for parks in northern Tanzania: Serengeti, Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara, Tarangire, Arusha NP and Kilimanjaro. They are good enough for navigating from.

You may want to buy these maps after arriving in Tanzania, as they are updated now and then, and maps found abroad may not be the most recent versions.

The Hoopoe maps are available in souvenir shops, at park gates and from street vendors in Arusha.
