Main banks in Tanzania, within towns such as Moshi and Arusha are Standard Chartered, Barclays, Exim Bank. Cards are more widely accepted in the hotels / lodges within the National Parks.

You might be able to use your credit cards at some hotel. You can withdraw cash at ATMs with the Visa logo (fees are high). In general however, Tanzania is a cash-based economy so to make it simple, just come with USD in cash and exchange to Tanzanian shillings when you are here
