New Visa Process at Kilimanjaro International Airport
The Tanzanian Government has with immediate effect changed the process of issuing visas at Kilimanjaro International Airport. The change involves guests queuing three times in order to receive the visa. To avoid this inconvenience, we strongly recommend that our guests apply for the E-Visa at https://eservices.immigration.go.tz/visa. The E-Visa approval process can take a few weeks so we encourage guests to apply well in advance of their arrival and hence only queue once at Kilimanjaro.
The Government has added extra booths at the visa counter and the bank in order to speed up the process. Unfortunately, all airside passes have been revoked and our representatives can no longer enter the customs and immigration area to meet guests. Kindly inform all your clients of these new developments.
Nyepesi Kilimanjaro Climb Overview
The Nyepesi Kilimanjaro Climb is a seven-day climb through the scenic Lemosho route. The climb begins at the Machame entrance gate and proceeds with steady walks for the next five days, over-nighting at Machame, Shira, Barranco and Barafu Camps before summiting Uhuru Peak at 19,325 feet on day six. Climbers will then descend to the Mweka Camp for the night before exiting through the Mweka gate from where they are transferred to their hotel. This is our lowest category of accommodation that we offer on the mountain but with the same fantastic Akorn standards. Contact us for details.
Air Tanzania to launch direct flights to Gatwick
Air Tanzania will soon launch direct flights to London’s Gatwick Airport. The airline will fly from its hub in Dar es Salaam via Kilimanjaro to Gatwick every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday using the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. This is the airline’s first route to Europe.
INSIDER ACCESS: Cultural Walks and Scenic Sundowners
The Ngorongoro Conservation Area that surrounds the Ngorongoro Crater is an area of outstanding natural beauty and one that many visitors are only allowed to drive through. Now, with Akorn’s exclusive Insider Access activity, your guests will be able to walk through this magical area after their game drive in the crater and gain a deeper understanding of the people, and wildlife, that call it their home.
The walk will begin at four in the afternoon once your guests have completed their game drive in the caldera. The walk will take them through the Masai villages where they get to meet some of the inhabitants. Their guide will enlighten them on the Masai culture and a particular talking point will be how the modern world is affecting their ancient traditions and how this will change their culture and way of life. This is a truly authentic experience and your guests will be able to interact with the Masai as they go about their daily lives. After about an hour and a half they will come across an idyllic ‘sundowner’ spot which has been set up for them with chairs, side tables and a miniature bar that contains their favourite drinks. Your guests will then be able to sit and admire the beauty around them, sipping on a cold drink, and watch the sun go down before returning to their property for dinner.
Contact us to include a cultural walk to your client's itinerary.
Yellow Fever Vaccination Requirement
The Tanzania Government wishes to advise that yellow fever vaccination is mandatory to travelers arriving from yellow fever endemic countries.This requirement also applies to travelers subjected to long flight connections (transit) in yellow fever endemic countries for 12 hours or more.
The vaccination, which is given as a single dose, should be administered ten days before entering the mainland Tanzania as well as Zanzibar. Failure to produce a valid yellow fever vaccination certificate may lead to refusal of entry. You can get vaccinated upon arrival at a cost of USD 50. A government receipt shall be issued for the vaccination charges paid. For a list of endemic countries, click here.
