Welcome to Tanzania, the land of Kilimanjaro and the almighty Serengeti. Cliché? Yes, but it never gets boring. This is our land, the one we love to call home, our one true mother, still beautiful in her own pristine way, still attractive to the eye of the regular visitor, undoubtedly stunning to the eyes of the curious stranger. Her bewitching beauty has never been more surreal, though tested by the sands of time, her scars shine brighter, her children closer to heart and dearer than never before, thriving in testing times while her neighbors stare in awe. She continues to amaze with her abundance in the north  where life in the wild has seen no greater times In these prosperous majestic lands where grazers bow in thanks as they chomp their way to greater numbers, armies of wildebeest swelling in population, generation upon generation of these mighty dark beasts, in company of their loyal compatriots the Zebra, enjoying the great trek that is the great migration. Mother nature has never been more giving, the Serengeti plains are still rolling, elephant populations in the Tarangire still dwarfing their neighbors and those beyond, lions still standing guard staring into the horizon on the canopies of acacia trees at Lake Manyara national park.

And yes, the big cats still follow, still crouching, looking, always on alert, listening, patiently waiting for that single opportunity that at times means now or never for them, but for you a spectacle you will dare not forget. The leopards and hyenas still watch, albeit from a safe distance, in company of the random black backed Jackal, still picking up scraps in competition with vultures and their chief partner in crime the marabou stork. And whilst all the action unravels on the northern plains of Tanzania, Mount Kilimanjaro still stands guard, providing a challenge of its own, still the number one peak for those brave at heart.

Welcome to the south where nature has seen Tanzania bare a new child, the Nyerere National Park, the brainchild of an African son who dares to dream, sustainability of the vast variety of plant and animal life that grace these royal lands in mind, a gem that future generations will appreciate in years to come. Having enjoyed a rare uninterrupted hunting season brought upon the universe by a certain pandemic., the cold slender killers of the south are stronger than ever. The action canvas in the Ruaha has never had more deserving artists. Here, wild dogs still reign supreme. Though lacking a deserving audience, the chimps in Mahale still bout, still mindful to behave in the presence of their human visitors, as if to avoid tarnishing the now world-famous family name that has taken years to establish.

And just to sweep you off your feet, as if to scornfully relish in the knowledge that her beauty in the mainland has worn you over, she offers her ample white sandy beaches that run along her affable coastline and her exclusivity on private islands along her aquatic edge. Divers still dive here and snorkelers still snorkel, but the occasional night spent under water is by far the most amazing trick she has ever pulled out of her heart in these waters. Welcome to Tanzania, a surreal mix of facts and fantasy, the relentless gift that keeps on giving. Here your make-believe morphs into life, here, the thrill is still real.

COVID – 19: Nisimulie Africa SOP’s

In light of the world opening up slowly amidst the current pandemic, we have been preparing to welcome tourists back to Tanzania by making changes to the way we provide our services. New SOPs are in place for every touch point and guest experience that characterizes your stay with us as your esteemed hosts. Our SOPs will be updated in line with the Government of Tanzania’s instructions to the tourism and hospitality industry. Our priority is to ensure that we provide the safest possible environment for our guests while providing top-notch safari experiences.


Standard Operating Procedures

1.     To keep social distancing, safari vehicles with 6-window seats will be redesigned to take only 4 people in the passenger cabin. Safari vehicles with 6-window seats will still be available for families wishing to travel together in one vehicle

2.   The driver-guide will be at hand to oversee guests observe the recommended physical distancing at park entry gates, museums, picnic sites, and while checking in at accommodation facilities.

3.   City transfer and safari vehicles will be regularly disinfected before picking up clients, especially the high-touch surfaces and seats

4.   Sanitizers (anti-microbial agents) will be provided in the vehicle for guests' use

5.   The driver-guide will take necessary personal protection precautions at all times. Guests are encouraged to come with their own masks; packaged masks will be available at an extra cost.

6.   Health condition of driver-guides will be monitored for not less than a week before being assigned to take clients on safari, including measuring body oxygen level (recommended 95% and above) and body temperature not exceeding 37.5 degrees centigrade.

7.   There will be three health centers dedicated to COVID-19 rapid response and support network; one center will be in Arusha town (Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre), one in Karatu near Ngorongoro, and the third in central Serengeti at Seronera. Ambulances will be on standby.

8.   For clients needing more medical attention, Nisimulie Africa Tours and Travel will arrange evacuation by Flying Doctors. The Flying Doctors package covers evacuation to a hospital in Nairobi. We can also arrange evacuation to Aga Khan Hospital in Dar es Salaam, a fine facility with high rate of recovery for COVID-19 patients. The evacuation to Dar es Salaam will involve some extra charges to be met by the patient. Clients are required to have medical insurance to cover hospitalization expenses. 

9.   The welcome briefing to guests will include details of our safety and hygiene measures in place and what is required of guests during their stay (including the use of masks and gloves and keeping safe distances from other guests).

10. Not limiting these procedures to ourselves, we work with other third-party suppliers who ensure and adhere to the set international standards of travel as defined by the Ministry of Tourism and WHO.
