It is very important to set an appointment with a travel doctor in your home country before you come. Depending on the situation, you might take vaccine for yellow fever and may take prophylaxis pills to protect you against Malaria. If you go to Zanzibar or come (or have a transit) in an endemic yellow fever country, proof of vaccination against yellow fever may be required at the airport.

Many people worry about wild animals on safari. Your Guide will make sure that you always keep a safe distance and will always give directions for your safety. Safety is our guide’s #1 priority.
You can bring children of any age on safari, however we would not normally recommend safaris for children under the age of 5. There will be some long hours in the vehicle and constant animal sightings are not guaranteed. It can be hot and dusty, and the roads may be bumpy, which is tiring even for adults.
Lodges: Full-service facilities with private rooms or cottages with private bathroom and have restaurants and lounges. Some have swimming pools. Many lodges are architecturally stunning and add to the overall experience of the trip.

Tented Camps: Permanent or semi-permanent camps sited in areas of excellent game viewing. These provide many of the comforts of a lodge within private spacious canvas tents on a solid permanent base with beds and private baths, and high-quality meals. Tented camps are more intimate than lodges as they generally accommodate 12 to 20 guests.

Basic Camping Safari: Guests sleep in private tents in designated campsites in or near National Parks. Our safari crew sets up the camp and prepares all the meals. Washroom facilities are basic and are shared with other guests.
At the camps and tented lodges, chefs prepare fresh soups, breads, entrees and desserts daily, in most lodges, meals are served buffet-style. We will send you a questionnaire ahead of time to understand any of your dietary restrictions. The food is often prepared with Western palates in mind (Some local dishes are included). On a camping safari, you will have your own private Chef who will prepare all your meals. Your Chef will be able to cater for different tastes (example, Western, Local, or a mixture).
All our safari vehicles have power / charging points.

Please bring travel adaptors to ensure they are suitable for your appliances / devices. The vehicles and most accommodation in Tanzania use UK sockets.
Most lodges and tented camps have Wi-Fi. Most public campsites do not have Wi-Fi. In all places, the signal strength is variable and is often weak. It is possible to buy a SIM card with data that can be used (in Arusha). If you want to use it in your phone, you will need to make sure it is unlocked. There are Vodacom and Airtel shops in Arusha that will be able to help / advise with this.
