Please note that although Tanzania does not officially require proof of Yellow Fever vaccination, at most airports and other points of entry you may be required to show a certificate of vaccination or an exemption certificate. This includes coming from Europe via, or transiting through an endemic country including the airports of Nairobi (Kenya) and Addis Ababa (Ethiopia). If visiting Zanzibar from mainland Tanzania border officials have been known to demand proof of Yellow Fever vaccination or an exemption certificate.
Recommended vaccinations are: Polio, Tetanus, Typhoid, Hepatitis A. Malaria prophylaxis is essential and we suggest that you seek advice from your GP or travel health clinic about which malaria tablets to take. Dengue fever is a known risk in places visited. It is a tropical viral disease spread by daytime biting mosquitoes. There is currently no vaccine or prophylaxis available for Dengue, and therefore the best form of prevention is to avoid being bitten. We recommend you take the usual precautions to avoid mosquito bites.
Is this trip for you?
This is an excellent trip for wildlife, scenery and a taste of life amongst the Masaai tribe. There are some long drives, and although the distances are not huge, some of the roads are quite poor and can be bumpy and/or muddy, after the rainy season. The lodges and semi-permanent camps are very comfortable and are situated in the best areas for wildlife viewing, with the additional benefit of proper beds, ensuite bathrooms and verandahs. On safari, we travel in Luxury 4WD Land Cruisers and each vehicle has a roof hatch, which greatly enhances game viewing and due to rotation of seats throughout the trip you will be guaranteed a window seat. There will be some long drives, however, this is the nature of being on safari in parks and conservation areas, and there will be ample opportunities for animal spotting and photography.
Following a review of all our trips we have categorised this trip as not suitable for full wheelchair users, but it may be suitable for other persons of reduced mobility. Please contact customer services to discuss the trip and your personal condition.
