Corona and your travel plans Tanzania
Dear Jambo Kilimanjaro client
this page is for the information of all clients of Jambo Kilimanjaro as well as travel interested parties and is updated regularly. We have compiled some facts here:
1) German Tour Operator:
By booking your travel services with Jambo Kilimanjaro or another German tour operator you are covered by the German travel law. It is very accommodating and offers a high level of security also in many matters concerning the Corona situation.
2) Travel Warning Federal Foreign Office:
There are currently warnings against unnecessary tourist trips abroad. They must expect further increasing drastic restrictions on travel, quarantine measures and restrictions on public life.
Immediately impending trips must therefore be cancelled or postponed. A long-term development is not yet foreseeable at present, so we will monitor this closely.
3) Currently there is no entry ban BUT quarantine on/after entry for Tanzania
Information from our partner in Tanzania:
“On 23 March 2020 the Tanzanian government has followed many other countries and made their official announcement for new travel measures in place with the hopes of containing the existing few cases in Tanzania and limit further spread into the country. The new policy means that:
- All travelers whether foreign or returning residents arriving from ‘affected’ COVID-19 countries will be subjected to up to 14 days isolation at their own cost at designated facilities after which they may continue travel if no symptoms are present.
- Passengers are required to fill a health declaration form in the plane or on arrival to any other port.
- All travelers will be subject to intensive screening and rapid testing where necessary.
Many international airlines in the last few days have also announced the cancellation of key flights that land in our destination so we have already rebooked all April 2020 bookings and are monitoring the situation for further advice and changes as we are unsure on how far this could extend into the future.”
4) What happens to your bookings?
- For bookings who expect to travel between 23 March 2020 and 31 May 2020:
- No charges or rate changes applicable to cancel or to re-book the itinerary for travel up to 31 December 2021 where amended at least 7 days prior to arrival.
- No new bookings will be accepted for travel between today and 31 May 2020 unless travel restrictions are lifted.
- For bookings who expect to travel after 01 June 2020:
- No charges to re-book the itinerary for travel up to 31 December 2021 at the same rate for a similar season where amended at least 30 days prior to arrival.
We from Jambo Kilimanjaro wish that the Corona crisis will be overcome as soon as possible and that we can again organize trips without any uncertainties. You as a client should be able to experience a carefree holiday, that is our highest priority!

That is why I lead Jambo Kilimanjaro with a lot of passion, to make an unforgettable adventure in the heart of Africa possible for you too.
Your trekking tour in Tanzania
Machame Route, also known as the “Whiskey Route”, is one of the most scenic and varied routes up to Uhuru Peak. It is one of the most popular routes, but a bit more strenuous compared to other routes, and contains some steeper rocky passages.
Lemosho Route is one of the least used routes to climb Kilimanjaro. Yet it is considered one of the most beautiful routes which offers good opportunities to adapt to the altitude due to its height profile and its length.
Your safari in Tanzania
There is hardly any other country where you can experience the fascination of a safari as intensively as in Tanzania. You can look forward to a breathtaking flora and fauna and to explore three of the country’s most famous national parks.
You will experience three national parks with a breathtaking variety of plants and animals. A highlight of this safari is the world famous Serengeti with an incredible abundance of animals and the chance to see the “Big 5” (elephant, rhino, buffalo, lion and leopard) in the wild.
Discover the beaches of Tanzania
We take you on this very special tour to discover Tanzania’s cost and its white sandy beaches. This hidden gem, The Tides Lodge, and its people will warmly welcome you and make sure you have an unforgettable stay of a special kind.
Discover the Tanzanian old urban environment and add some relaxing moments at the beach. We recommend this trip to all those who have limited time and are always curious to discover more.
