Covid-19 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 still warnings against unnecessary tourist travel to countries outside the EU/Schengen area until 31.08.2020 (expected). 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 and soon abolition of quarantine on/after entry for Tanzania
International air traffic with Tanzania has resumed on a small scale since 1 June 2020. Upon entry, an extensive COVID 19 screening is carried out. A quarantine obligation no longer exists. If symptoms of COVID-19 are detected on entry, the passenger will receive medical care directly at the airport. If the screening guidelines are not followed, entry may be refused. All travellers are advised to follow the applicable distance and hygiene regulations and to wear face masks. If traveling by land, a screening will also be carried out at the border crossing before entry is permitted.
The Government of the United Republic of Tanzania has published the following travel advice in a document:
4) What happens to your bookings?
For travel until 31.08.2020, no fees or price changes will be charged for cancellation and rebooking of the itinerary until 31 December 2021, if the itinerary is changed at least 4 weeks before arrival.
We also offer travel vouchers for those who cannot yet commit to a new date. If you choose to use a voucher, it is valid until the end of 2021 and if you have not used the voucher by then, we will refund your deposit. We are thus adhering to the voucher solution decided on by the EU Package Travel Directive of our federal government, and a corresponding bill will be passed by the cabinet shortly: voucher-based Solution
For bookings that are expected to take place after 31.08.2020:
We are observing the situation in Tanzania very closely and together with our partner are very cautious with forecasts. At the moment we still recommend to wait and see. We are constantly checking whether the actual infection situation and possible containments allow us to carry out a trip from our side at all.
We at Jambo Kilimanjaro hope that we will be able to organize adventurous trips to Tanzania again as soon as possible. You as a customer should be allowed to experience a carefree holiday, this is of the utmost importance to us!

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.
