Safety: Firearms or pocket knives are not allowed  to be brought into the country without permission. Do not stroll alone during the nights, thieves tend to pick on" Mzungu" (white person) assuming that they have a lot of money.
Don't be ostentatious, you will be attracting trouble, there is widespread theft of expensive jewellery.  Mobile/Cellular Phone, do not receive/make a call in an open space especially Dar es Salaam.
Expensive items such as camera, video cameras, binoculars, are very much targeted by thieves, make sure you take utmost care in securing them. Secure your wallet very well, pickpockets are alive and kicking especially in major cities.
Gay and Lesbians: There are no gay or lesbians clubs in Tanzania. It doesn't mean that there are no gays in Tanzania. Gay couple should be very careful with public show-off of affection. While there is no direct hostility towards gay people, public affection will lead to unnecessary ugly attention. 
Avoid Drugs while you are in Tanzania, it might lead you into trouble with the law enforcement.
Travelers Cheques: It is easy to carry them during the safari, but the rates provided by Bureau de Change are less than paper note; and very few establishments are accepting them
Other Things
Anti mosquito precautions; Lightweight khaki cotton shorts, trousers, shirt, hat, Warm lightweight fleece/jumper and Sunscreen; something smart casual for the evenings if you're staying in a smart lodge; Camera/video with a wide angle & zoom lens/adapter
While doing walking excursions in the parks and/or game reserve, make sure that it is allowed and paid to the authority, who normally provide an armed ranger to accompany you.
Never leave cameras and hand luggage unattended, especially in public areas.
Make photocopies of your passport, airline tickets, driverís license and other important documentation.
ONE IMPORTANT THING TO NOTE, SAFARI TAKES PLACE IN THE NATURAL WILDERNESS AREAS AND NOT IN ZOOS, ANIMALS ARE DANGEROUS, WATCH IT OUT.
