Amazing Tanzania 7 Day Safari
Arrival & Departure Information – Tanzania has two International Airports, Julius Nyerere Airport (DAR) in Dar Es Salaam and Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO) which is conveniently located between the towns of Moshi and Arusha. Because of its location, a 45 minute drive to either town, Kilimanjaro International Airport is attractive to both safari goers and mountain climbers alike.
Upon arrival you will be met by a representative of Local Moshi and taken to your hotel in Arusha, which is known as the safari capital of Tanzania for its close access to the National Parks including Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara, Tarangire National Park and the Serengeti. Depending on your travel arrangements you will also be transferred to the airport at the end of your safari for your onward travels.
Visas - All foreigners from non-Commonwealth countries are required to have a valid visa unless their countries have agreements with Tanzania under which the visa requirement is waived. The costs of the visa vary from $50 for some European Passports and $100 for US Passports and can be purchased on arrival at the airport or obtained in advance at the Tanzanian Embassy. Please refer to your local Tanzanian representation for further clarification.
Health Requirements - The US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDCP) recommends the following vaccinations:
Malaria, Yellow Fever, Typhoid, Hepatis A, Hepatitis B and Rabies. Yellow Fever vaccination is required by the Tanzanian Government when entering the country from an infected area and you may be asked to show your vaccination record.
Consult with your doctor about any additional vaccinations or medications concerning your personal circumstances.
Weather – The weather in Tanzania varies from tropical near the coast (hot & humid) to temperate in the north east highlands. Tanzania’s interesting and varied geography causes differing climatic conditions, and it can be cool at night.
