Safety Guidelines for Tanzania Safari in Coronavirus Pandemic (Covid-19)

Our visitors’ and employees’ safety is always our first concern, and it affects all of our choices. We understand that in today’s uncertain world, tourists are more cautious when making arrangements and may have a few additional inquiries. We will be there for you every step of the way.

Before your safari, your vehicle will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected, from the seat coverings and cushions to all other touch surfaces. Throughout your safari, your guide will clean and disinfect all main touch surfaces, such as door and window knobs, arm rests, electrical plugs, guide books, and so on, at least once every day. ​

While on Safari

Based on the route, you will normally be with the same driver and vehicle throughout the safari, reducing your contact with a wide range of people. Customers are asked to bring their own face masks, ideally replaceable ones per day on safari or reusable ones, and also to keep a social distance of at least one (1) meter. Your guide will do that and will be wearing their own face mask. If you and the guide both are okay with it, you may both decide to take off the face mask while on safari.
We ask that clients bring their own hand sanitizer that meets the CDC and WHO alcohol content recommendations. ​

Must-do essentials, before you travel to Tanzania

Are you ready to travel to Tanzania? Hold on. It is important that you obtain travel insurance that protects you for Covid-19 before you hit the road. Make sure to purchase ‘cancel for any reason’ travel insurance; this will provide you with peace of mind if you need to postpone your trip for any reason.

We also recommend reserving flexible flights so that you may change your vacation dates if necessary.
