The COVID-19 pandemic has undoubtedly made it difficult to travel, but it is still very possible to see the world while maintaining you and your family’s safety. As of June 2022, Tourists entering Tanzania must have a negative COVID-19 test result valid no more than 96 hours before your arrival in Tanzania, as well as the Ministry of Health’s online surveillance form 24 hours before arrival. Additionally, you will be required to take a rapid test at your own expense upon arrival; these tests can range from $15-$80 per person. Though these steps may sound intimidating, please be assured that these requirements will be the most difficult part of your COVID-free trip in Tanzania! Since the pandemic has been present in our lives for over 2 years now, the airport has sufficient experience with tourists and the process is easy and fast. Once you’ve received a negative rapid test at the airport, your true adventure in Tanzania will begin with TAT!
Throughout your safari with TAT, interaction with potential COVID-infected people will be limited. Most of your time will be spent with your wonderful guide and hotel/resort staff. We would advise both vaccinated and unvaccinated tourists to take safety precautions, such as wearing a mask when indoors and washing your hands frequently. Before departing for your adventure, make sure to check updated CDC guidelines and recommendations. Communicate with your guide and travel companions to find what your most comfortable with. We want this trip to be one to remember, and we will work with you to ensure your safety and comfort!
