It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout.

Vaccination And Medication

When traveling to Tanzania it is recommended that you reach out to your physician or travel health service to figure out what vaccinations are recommended. Typically Hepatitis A+B, typhoid and diphtheria vaccinations are recommend to Tanzania. Yellow fever vaccination is not required, however if you spend more than a few hours in another country that has yellow fever (specifically Kenya) you will need to provide proof of inoculation and your Yellow Fever card prior to entry in Tanzania.

Visas

While visas can be obtained on arrival in Tanzania for travelers from many countries, the process can be slow and if possible it is recommended to get your visa prior to travel. This is the correct website to use if you would like to get your visa before you travel: Online Visa. Note you will need to have your flight arrangements prior to applying for an e-visa and it takes about 10 business days to process so plan ahead.

Packing

One thing that we cannot emphasize enough is don’t overpack! This is particularly true if you will be taking an internal flight on your safari. They have a strict luggage limit (15kg per person, including hand luggage). Soft bags are recommended over hard suitcases. Safari trucks aren’t huge – save space to move around.  For a more comprehensive post on what to pack on safari, see the link provided.

Travel Insurance

We strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance as soon as you book your trip. First, travel insurance guarantees your trip if there are any unforeseen cancellations. While we are confident safari in Tanzania is safe, there is always the risk of unexpected medical emergencies. When that happens you want to be certain that you are covered for medical care in Tanzania and for repatriation back to your home country in the event of an accident and illness. It is generally advised to carry $100,000 USD coverage for medical care and $250,000 USD coverage for repatriation.
