Tanzania Vaccinations and Malaria

Tanzania Vaccinations and Malaria

Tanzania Vaccinations and Malaria

As long as you stay up-to-date with your vaccinations and take basic preventive measures, you’re unlikely to succumb to most of the possible health hazards. While Tanzania has an impressive selection of tropical diseases on offer, it’s more likely you’ll get a bout of diarrhoea or a cold than a more exotic malady. 

The main exception to this is malaria, which is a real risk throughout much of the country. Road accidents are the other main threat to your health. Never travel at night, and choose buses or private transport over dalla-dallas (minibuses) to minimise the risk.

 

Before You Go

  • #1. Get a check-up from your doctor if you have any regular medication or chronic illness.
  • #2. Organise spare contact lenses and glasses.
  • #3. Get a first-aid and medical kit together; arrange necessary vaccinations.
  • #4. Carry medications in their original (labelled) containers.
  • #5. If carrying syringes or needles, have a physician’s letter documenting their medical necessity. 
  •  

Regardless of your destination, the World Health Organization (www.who.int/en) recommends that all travellers be covered for the following.

  • #1. Diphtheria
  • #2. Tetanus
  • #3. Measles
  • #4. Mumps
  • #5. Rubella
  • #6. Polio
  • #7. Hepatitis  and B.

 

While a yellow fever vaccination certificate is not officially required to enter Tanzania unless you’re coming from an infected area, carrying one is advised.

Climb Mount Kilimanjaro with Trip Insight Tanzania 

We love Kilimanjaro love Kilimanjaro. It is a massive 5,895m tall and the highest free-standing mountain in the world. Mount Kilimanjaro is in Tanzania, East Africa. Kilimanjaro is also the highest mountain in Africa so is part of the very special club that mountaineers call the “Seven Summits” – the highest mountains on each continent.

Even with these awesome credentials, you can leave work on a Fridayclimb to its summit and be back at work a week later. And more than anything this accessibility is what makes it so popular. So book your adventure now with the us. If you climb with us, you are in safe hands – Book early for our top Guides with over 100 successsfully summits.

Booking your Kilimanjaro trek with the right agency is perhaps the single most important factor in determining the success or otherwise of your trek. After all, they are the ones who arrange everything, supply the equipment, and designate somebody to be your guide to take you up to the Roof of Africa. So take your time choosing one. Because unless you are a guide, porter, guidebook writer or just plain daft, undertaking a Kilimanjaro trek will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. It’s an expensive one too – so make sure that you get it right. “Climbing Kilimanjaro in Tanzania with us”
