Tanzania travel insurance

Tanzania is one of the best places to go on safari in the world, and along with the island paradise of Zanzibar, this makes Tanzania a once-in-a-lifetime trip for nature lovers and explorers.

Top 5 Things to see and do in Tanzania

1. Mount Kilimanjaro

The largest and most famous mountain in Africa, Mount Kilimanjaro is a deceptively difficult climb. However, with the right preparation, this dormant volcano can be a great climbing achievement.

2. Serengeti

Serengeti plains are one of the best safaris in the world, and you might even get the chance to witness the great migration, where over a million wildebeest traverse the plains.

3. Zanzibar

Zanzibar is both an island paradise for scuba divers and explorers. Whether you want to relax on the white beaches or snorkel in the sea, Zanzibar holds plenty of opportunities to suit all tastes.

4. The Rift Valley

The Rift Valley crosses from Lebanon in the north, down to Mozambique, and now it houses a diverse and amazing eco-system full of national parks and the Ngorongoro crater.

5. Kilwa Kisiwani Ruins

This island was once one of the greatest empires in East Africa and now its stunning ruins can be viewed by tourists, including its gorgeous palaces and domed mosques.

What injections do I need for Tanzania?

Travellers should have all the routine UK vaccinations alongside tetanus, typhoid and hepatitis A. A full list of vaccines can be found on the NaTHNaC website. However, you should ensure that you take out appropriate travel insurance before you leave the country in case of accident or emergency in this region.

Is Tanzania safe for tourists?

Violent crime is increasing against tourists in Tanzania. Therefore, you should remain vigilant at all times and take precautions such as, leaving your passport at the hotel and walking at a distance from the road, or if necessary, towards the flow of traffic.
