We aim to provide 1-5% of our profits into organizations that work with providing medical, health and educational care to the less fortunate in Tanzania. These profits typically go to the Leopard Foundation who in turn distribute it to any organization they are currently working with.
At Jungle Safaris we truly believe we have just one planet and it is our job to not only protect it, but to also advocate for it wherever we can. At Jungle Safaris, we try and limit the use of plastic bottles as much as possible and ask all our clients to kindly use a more sustain able means of carrying water everyday. Water bottles can be refilled at every safari accommodation. However, we do provide water bottles for the charge of $1/bottle. Any profits made from the purchases of water bottles goes into organizations for betterment of our environment such as the “Global Footprint Network”.
Furthermore, us and our partners at Leopard Foundation are nationally recognized and have been awarded a certificate of recognition by the Municipality for their work in replanting trees throughout Arusha.
As tour operators it is of utmost importance for us to constantly advocate against the poaching of wildlife- be it the animals or the land. At Jungle Safaris, we take pride inconstantly training our driver guides in understanding wildlife behavior and there fore teaching it better. Also, as Jungle Safaris, we are proud to take a stand with strict laws against poaching and such hunters and hunts. Ivory and the likes are for the animals and animals alone.

As the vaccine rolls out, it is everyone’s hope to see the end of COVID-19 soon, and with it the return to normal international travel.
Tanzania has remained open to international travel since June 2020 but the number of visitor arrivals has stayed very low. Tanzania is endorsed as a Safe Travels destination by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) in recognition of the measures being taken by the country in adopting the global standard health and hygiene protocols to contain the spread of corona virus.
A COVID-19 negative certificate is not a requirement for entry into Tanzania. As it is, the requirement for a COVID-19 negative certificate for entry or departure is dependent on the country of origin of the traveler and the airline of travel.
Departing travelers whose onward destinations and airline require a COVID-19 negative certificate, will undergo testing in Tanzania, this could be 72 hours or 96 hours before departure depending on the airline and onward destination. The cost for the COVID-19 test is USD 100 per person, please see attached guide for COVID-19 testing by the Tanzania Ministry of Health.
Given our experience with the few tests we have assisted so far, for example for clients departing on KLM or those crossing over to Kenya, guests’ operating itineraries are at times subjected to rerouting for COVID-19 samples to be taken at the designated health centers at the recommended time for testing. This may also involve some extra cost on the ground but you will be informed in due course to ensure that guests’ travel is as smooth as possible.
The safety and wellbeing of our guests, staff and the public remains our highest priority. We have placed a few policies in place to ensure as smooth a transition as possible for all our clients:
1. All Driver guides and staff members are subject to a temperature check before the start of any trip and/or day.
2. Driver Guides must present with a negative PCR test before taking on any safari trip.
3. Sanitizers and masks are at use throughout. As per CDC guidelines, those clients who are fully vaccinated are free to roam without masks and/social distancing. However, as Tanzania is still working through getting its population vaccinated, our driver guides and staff members ensure the use of masks and sanitizers throughout.
