Malaria & Safety – Tarangire NP


It is considered very safe to travel in Tarangire National Park in our opinion. The people you will meet – mostly staff of the park, lodges and tour operators – will be there to make sure your visit is pleasant. Aside from that, most will be tourists. Crime against tourists is virtually unheard of in Tanzania’s parks and reserves.

Malaria & Vaccinations

It is advisable that you have several vaccinations before your travel. You will need to consult your local doctor or travel clinic. Also, malaria prevention is important, as it is a health concern. Be sure to use mosquito repellent containing at least 30% DEET and take antimalarial medication. Wearing long sleeves in the evening is also a good precaution.

Wildlife Viewing

If you listen to the advice of your guide and use your commonsense, wildlife viewing will have far less risks. Serious wildlife incidents are very rare on organized safaris with reputable operators.
