*** Covid-19 Update 05.03.2022: Tansania ist kein Hochrisikogebiet mehr. Für die Einreise aus und Rückreise nach Deutschland sind weder ein Corona-Test (sofern nicht von eurer Fluggesellschaft verlangt) noch eine Quarantäne notwendig. Weitere Informationen findet du hier.
Due to Covid-19, entry into some countries for the purpose of entry restrictions is unfortunately not possible or is associated with more effort due to quarantine regulations, this does not apply to Tanzania. For a few months now, you no longer have to be quarantined when entering Tanzania, and a negative Covid-19 test is not required on site. The European airlines fly to Kilimanjaro Airport several days a week.
What do I have to expect when I travel to Tanzania?
When entering Tanzania, a negative PCR-test has to bepresented, which shouldn't be older that 94 hours. Normally the airlines require that a Covid-19 test be carried out up to 72 hours before departure, please clarify this with the selected airline. At the airport in Tanzania, a fever is taken on arrival to rule out infection.
Why should you book a safari right now?
At the moment there are few tourists in the parks, so the safari experience is unique! There are no motorcades jostling past each other, the roads are easier to drive and the lodges / campsites are not overcrowded. In contrast to other vacations, on safari you come into contact with very few people, which reduces the risk of infection.
How high is the probability of being infected with Covid-19 on safari?
Our drivers and cooks like to do a Covid-19 test before the safari start so they don't have to worry about it. During the safari you will only be with the driver and the cook, so you will not come into contact with anyone during the game drives. Due to the few tourists, both the lodges and the campsites are not very busy, you are mostly alone there and of course the staff keeps the distance rules.
"It is with deepest sorrow and heavy heart that we inform you of the untimely death of Our beloved President and the Head of the State, Dr John Magufuli who died on 17 March 2021 in Dar es Salaam.
In a televised national address on Wednesday night, the Vice President H.E Samia Suluhu Hassan announced the President's demise, saying that the death robbed us the brave leader. We stand with the Nation at this difficult moment.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and more so the entire Tanzanian community and TATO Members, during this difficult time. We pray that his soul rest in eternal peace." (TATO)
"In the summer, due to limited long-distance travel destinations for the winter months, we had already considered a vacation in Tanzania with a safari and swimming in Zanzibar. Due to the excellent reviews and very accommodating cancellation options in times of Corona, we ultimately decided on Paradise Safaries and were not disappointed. We have decided on the 7-day classic and are thrilled.
Landelin our driver and guide drove us confidently and safely through all 5 national parks, provided us with a lot of information and patiently fulfilled every wish. Thanks to Landelin's good eyesight, we had the opportunity to observe 69 lions, 10 rhinos, 2 leopards and Gebhards as well as countless elephants, giraffes and antelopes in the wild. Thousands of wildebeest and zebras crossed our path in the Serengeti. It was amazing...
Our cook Ali took care of our physical well-being. Every evening he conjured up a 3-course menu for us. In the morning we were spoiled with pancakes, omelets and fresh rolls. Many thanks to the organizers as well as to Landelin and Ali for this successful tour.
We also had concerns about Corona. Just like us, our driver and cook carried out a test beforehand at our request. At the moment, vacationing in Tanzania is definitely safe and recommended, provided the distance and hygiene rules are observed." (danuschka500)
