Tanzania and Zanzibar have abandoned all covid measures. For those travellers who are fully vaccinated, a PCR test is also no longer required to enter the country. Please check with your airline company if there are still any covid regulations in place to be accepted onboard.
It's perfectly possible to have a normal safari experience in Tanzania. Restaurants, hotels and campsites are open as usual.
Where to do a PCR test in Tanzania
In case you do have to do a PCR test in Tanzania, this can be done at Hai District Hospital, near JRO airport and Celian Hospital Arusha (both Monday - Friday) and Mount Meru Hospital Arusha (7 days a week). No need to make an appointment, but take note its an inefficient, time consuming process, which will take a few hours. Testing is only done from morning till noon and costs $ 100.
In Dar es Salaam, you can go to Amana Hospital. Also in Karatu (near the Ngorongoro), and Central Serengeti (Seronera), its possible to do a PRC tests.
Results should be communicated within 24 hours, but practice shows this promise is not always met, as all samples have to be flown to the lab in Dar es Salaam. For the safe side, calculate with 2 days.
Roadtrip Africa flexible booking and no risk payment terms
We accept online payments by Credit Card, Bank transfer, or Ideal (Dutch customer only) and cash payments on arrival.
Online payments are due latest two weeks before the start of your car rental trip. There are no refunds in case of a last minute cancelation or rescheduling, which is 14 days before your departure date or less.
Let's hope that COVID is something of the past. But in case it does become a pandemic again with severe travel restrictions and you have to cancel your booking, not to worry, we refund 100% of the payment. Valid COVID cancelation reasons are you tested positive with a PCR test ( in case a PCR test is reintroduced to be able to enter the country, or in case you are not vaccinated and have to show a negative PCR on arrival); flights to/ from Tanzania are banned, or when your home country all of a sudden imposes quarantine to visitors coming from Tanzania.
