Can I climb Kilimanjaro and Safari: YES. While Coronavirus Covid-19 Information for Kilimanjaro and Tanzania can change, all Climb Kili operations are fully functioning.
UPDATE: 18 MAY, 2020 President John Magufuli has lifted international flight bans and removed the 14 day quarantine by foreigners. There will be temperature checks to all arriving passengers. There is still questions about possible health verification documents/requirements to enter Tanzania; we will post all updates immediately.
Safety is and always will be our highest priority for our clients and staff. As the situation is updating daily, we wanted to reassure you of the current landscape on Kilimanjaro and safari.
• Fortunately, March and April are the lowest months in terms of tourism for the mountain and safari. To date, Tanzania has been one of the least affected countries in the world for this virus.
• Tanzania was one of the best prepared countries during Ebola of 2014 with their medical monitoring and containment strategies, the same has been implemented with Coronavirus COVID-19 measures.
• Our mountain and safari operations are fully functioning, and our entire staff has received extensive training on sterilization, distancing and overall preparation for our clients’ health and well-being.
We are here for you with any questions and concerns. Regarding final payment and rescheduling:
• With our Lifetime Deposit you can book with confidence and reschedule at any time if needed. We are waiving any climbing rebooking fees but please review our terms regarding Safari and Zanzibar.
It’s our recommendation to keep preparing and training and we’ll adjust together as the situation develops.
Stay healthy, stay positive, keep hiking (where possible!) and we’ll see you at the top!
