Why Adventure With Jungle Safari
Jungle Safaris is run by native Tanzanians living in the US. We have grown up going on safari and it is a part of who we are. We also live in the US and have lived in the UK so we share the culture and values on this side of the world too. Safe to say we understand how beautiful safaris are and also understand how complex it is to plan for one. Furthermore, We own no accommodations or restaurants, everything we advise you on has been tried and tested by us personally. Therefore, we ensure that the advice we give is completely unbiased and true to the best of our knowledge and expertise.
Our prices are the best in the market. All of our services are complementary and available whenever and wherever needed. When we say luxury safaris we aim to give you the most out of your adventure at the highest quality, no matter what your budget or time available.
We listen and plan your trip accordingly. Everything is hand-picked and personally planned by a Safari Expert. Whether you are a honeymooner, a solo traveler, a family, a senior or have any specific needs… we will personally handle your whole safari- from your arrival at the airport to your departure.
We want you to enjoy your safari fully and leave the worrying to us. Our members in the US and on ground partners are available to you 24/7. Please do not hesitate to contact us at any time and we will be sure to meet any requirements within our power.
We only work with on ground partners that share our high values. We work with partners who have the highest paid driver guides and staff members and ensure every gratuity is given directly by the client to whoever they want to. 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 in constantly training ourselves and our experts on wildlife, the people and land we take our trips on.
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.
