Travelling to Tanzania during a pandemic

travelling to tanzania during a pandemic

Whilst most of the world remains shut for tourism, Tanzania have adopted another approach. With open borders and open arms, Tanzania is actively encouraging tourism which is a breath of fresh air in this world that is filled with so much doom and gloom.

I flew off to Tanzania at the start of October for a two week fact-finding mission and investigated how the safari camps and lodges have been affected by the coronavirus, what protocols are being implemented to ensure the safety of guests and how the game viewing experience may have changed.

I visited a number of different areas across the Northern part of Tanzania and stayed at a number of different lodges whilst doing so.

International flights and airports

Understandably, many people worry about the safety of international airports and flights, yet whilst I travelled, I could not have felt safer. Flying from Heathrow, I had a connection in Amsterdam which flew directly into Kilimanjaro. All airports had automated hand sanitizer stations, enforced mask wearing at all times and social distancing measures were adhered to.

All the staff wore masks and gloves where appropriate and due to the lack of travellers, I had never seen the airports so empty. Heathrow was like a ghost town and although Amsterdam was slightly busier, it certainly did not have the same number of people as would normally be expected. During the flights, masks had to be worn at all times, and this was strictly enforced by the flight attendants.


As with most Tanzanian itineraries, a night in Arusha is needed as a quick stopover, and my trip was no different.
