Tanzania is generally considered a safe travel destination. The safaris that High Peaks Expeditions Limited organizes for our esteemed clients are carefully organized and planned to make clients feel very calm and cared for.
If you’ve never been to Africa, getting to crowded African airports and cities can be a bit overwhelming. But rest assured, after the grueling visa and immigration processes, your driver / guide will greet you with a friendly smile and your name on a sign outside the airport, at the arrival lounge. From then on, you will always be greeted and escorted to your respective destinations.
When on safari, don’t think about people and city life when you ask, “Is it safe to go on safari in Tanzania?” Rather, it is a wild animal that comes to mind. Is my tent strong enough? What happens if I hear animal noises at night? Am I safe in the safari vehicle?
All of these questions are perfectly normal and are asked by most of our clients who have never been on safari before. Most of the camps and lodges we recommend for safaris here in Tanzania are unfenced, which in short means that animals are free to roam the camps / lodges whenever they want.
Seeing elephants roaming the countryside, spotting wild boar grazing near your tent, or hearing lions roar from your bedroom at night are exciting sensations, but at the same time, you may wonder how safe you are. Don’t worry! Your safety is the top priority at safari camps. In the evening, always walk to and from your safari tent to the main area where dinner will be served and the guide will stay up all night.
It is very common to hear noises coming from your tent at night, such as the rustling of greenery, the growl of a hippopotamus or the proud roar of a lion. It should be noted that since there is no noise pollution in the bush, these sounds always seem closer than they really are. There is definitely a chance that lions will be outside of your tent, but they may be much further away and feel close.
Whether it’s your first safari or your 100th safari, the guides always put your safety first. Before going on safari, they will discuss the rules face-to-face and ask if they have any questions. When you arrive at a new course, the instructor sits down and reviews all the important points and course rules. They show you around your room and check all security features (like flashlight, safe, radio and horn).
In short, Tanzania’s cities are fairly safe, but you probably won’t spend much time here unless you’re staying overnight to start or end your safari before your international flight. In a safari park wildlife is a danger but all camp staff and guides are very safe, vigilant and vigilant in all safari activities they undertake. Their safety is very important to them and they have received extensive training for all possible situations.
