Like most Africans, Tanzanians greet each other often and for a long time by shaking hands. When they meet, they systematically and mutually inquire about each other's health. Thus, do not forget to greet the person you will be seeking information from. Young people remain respectful towards their elders. While strolling around the villages, you'll hear people say "shikamo" literally meaning "I touch your legs" and others respond "Marahaba", meaning "I accept". Visitors are treated as eminent guests. They will also often say "shikamo" to you. Impatience and anger are unappreciated so be patient and polite. Lastly, despite the small amount of money they have at their disposal, Tanzanians attach a lot of importance to their appearance so you should make sure that you are well-dressed.
