After consultation with local and international stakeholders, Tanzania issued National Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for the re-opening of the tourism industry post COVID-19 in May 2020. We consider the SOPs well crafted and strictly adhere to the SOPs.
Please note actual implementation of SOPs and guidelines is always a challenge for countries, especially in lower income destinations. It would be reasonable to assume that most travel businesses have an incentive to not fully comply.
We therefore recommend you to only book with companies committed to responsible travel, and to book all local travel arrangements from arrival through to departure with them, to increase your chances of COVID-19 SOPs being taken seriously and carefully implemented across all touchpoints for your entire local trip.
