Tanzania travel advice

We are happy to give you specific travel advice in relation to your trip to Tanzania.
[Last update January 23, 2024]

Travel advice code yellow!
Since February 2022, the travel advice of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for Tanzania has been adjusted to code yellow. This also officially indicates from the Dutch government that you can travel safely to Tanzania.

What are the obligations for me as a traveler to Tanzania?

  • There are currently no more entry restrictions due to corona / COVID-19.
  • See also our frequently asked questions page for the other vaccinations for Tanzania.
  • For information about the required documentation we like to refer to the KLM TravelDoc app.

I am traveling back to the Netherlands, what (corona) obligations do I have?
You may enter the Netherlands, and also Belgium, without entry restrictions due to COVID-19.

Repatriation in case of code orange? … our care!
In the event of a major natural disaster or a sudden closure of the airspace (such as in March 2020), we look at the situation on site and whether repatriation is necessary in the short term. A (sudden) code orange from the NL government does not mean that you are in immediate danger or that you would no longer be able to travel and that your holiday should end. Code orange is always a travel advice and not a travel ban.

El Niño
El Niño has caused more precipitation than usual in Tanzania at the end of 2023. The effects of El Niño could last until April 2024. It is nice to know that the weather reports are carefully studied prior to our safaris. Our guides are therefore always well prepared. Under no circumstances will irresponsible risks be taken. To date, the rain has not led to any disruptions to (our) safaris. Clearances always follow after the showers. For more information, also view the travel advice from the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. If the weather unexpectedly has consequences for a trip or accommodation choice you have booked with us, we will of course contact you immediately.

What are the most important pieces of advice when I travel to Tanzania?
Also remember to check your travel – and health insurance policies. In almost all cases, your health insurance covers medical care costs abroad (code yellow or orange), but additional insurance is recommended. If you suddenly become infected with corona just before departure and you are therefore no longer able to travel, then this is again covered by most cancellation insurance policies (e.g. Allianz).
