  • Tanzania Travel Tips

If you're traveling to Tanzania from a country with yellow fever, you will need to provide proof that you have been vaccinated against the disease before being allowed through immigration. The only exception to this rule is children aged 1 or younger. Tere are no other compulsory vaccinations, however, there are several that are highly recommended. The DCD advises that all travelers are immunized against hepatitis A and typhoid. Depending on which area of Kenya you plan on visiting and the activities that you will be taking part in, cholera, hepatitis B, meningitis, rabies, and yellow fever vaccinations may also be recommended.

Note: The yellow fever vaccine currently has limited availability in the United States. Make sure to schedule your appointment well in advance to ensure getting it on time.

Malaria

Malaria is a risk in all areas of Kenya lower than 8,200 feet. This includes most of the country's game parks, the coast, and the capital city. Prophylactics are strongly recommended. When you talk to your doctor about the different options available, make sure to let him or her know that you will be visiting Kenya specifically, as malaria parasites in this region of East Africa have built up a resistance to choloroquine. Although children can take anti-malaria medication as soon as they weigh 26.5 pounds or more, the difficulty of getting toddlers to take the pills effectively means that you should carefully consider traveling to a malaria area with children under 5.

Consider the below tips;

  • Visit your GP 6-8 weeks before travelling to East Africa to ensure you have all the necessary vaccinations and medication. A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required from travellers over one year of age arriving from countries with risk of yellow fever transmission.
  • Purchase comprehensive travel insurance which includes any activities you will be participating in (climbing, diving etc). Ensure this covers emergency medical repatriation; you may have to be evacuated if local hospitals are unable to provide adequate care.
  • Only drink bottled water and avoid ice in drinks.
  • Tanzania is close to the equator and the sun is fierce – especially as it is magnified by the altitude in much of the country. Remember to bring sunscreen, a hat, good quality sunglasses and chap stick with SPF to protect your lips. They will thank you for it!
