Quick update on Tanzania travel
This is the report of Tanzania travel during covid-19! Traveling to and around the country has been an incredibly smooth experience . We flew Ethiopian from DC and the transfer in Addis was very smooth. I would recommend doing the evisa as we were asked by the check in staff in DC to show an authorization to enter Tanzania.
In Dar on the jet bridge you are asked to sanitize your hands, hand over a health form, and your temperature is checked one by one. Then you’re good to go to immigration.
generally speaking you are asked to sanitize your hands and your temperature is checked anytime you get into a building or enter a national park.
the whole country feels very safe.
As far as we understand most lodges are closed so the best way to travel is to drive around a land cruiser with a rooftop tent to be autonomous. The roads are brand new and easy to navigate.
I cannot stress enough how empty the country is. We were told by the rangers in Ruaha that we were alone in the park and we may very well be one of 2/3 cars in the Serengeti.
if you’re heading to Tanzania I highly recommend staying at lakeshore lodge in Kipili on the lake. Such a wonderful experience and the owners are fantastic.
I’ll report on the northern circuit and Zanzibar shortly.
