May 8th, 2020 Update: All trips have been rescheduled for October or beyond. As the situation develops we will keep everyone updated as to developments within the country, as always, with your safety being our primary concern.

We recognize that in the current uncertain climate regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19), guests wishing to travel may be uncomfortable with making booking commitments in the near future.

We want to assure you that in response to the continued developments with the outbreak around the world, we have taken extra steps to ensure our customers’ health & comfort, and provide them with confidence and peace of mind during their stay with us here in Tanzania.

We believe it is in our interest that every effort is made to encourage clients to continue booking and wish to assure you that we will be flexible in respect to booking terms and conditions during this sensitive period by accommodating requests for waiver of cancellation charges, special consideration on deposits/final payments, or postponement of travel in a bid to encourage clients to book in advance.

COVID-19 in Tanzania

To date (March 17), there has only been a single case of COVID-19 diagnosed in Tanzania, who happened to be a foreign national that was flying from Belgium via Rwanda. The person was quickly diagnosed and quarantined, and as a preventative measure the government took action to close schools for the rest of March just to be safe.

The Government of Tanzania has, furthermore, implemented enhanced screening and quarantine measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  Travelers should be prepared for unexpected travel restrictions to be put into effect with little or no advance notice.

Individuals suspected of having COVID-19 may face travel delays, quarantine, and high medical costs, so please do not fly to Tanzania if you suspect yourself of having contracted the virus.

We will of course monitor the situation and keep our upcoming guests informed as to any developments in the situation here on the ground.
