If you plan to travel to Tanzania, then it is important to make proper preparations. Certain vaccinations are recommended for Tanzania, some of which are mandatory. The vaccines reduce health risks for you and your children (if they come along).
Tanzania is located in East Africa and has a tropical climate with year-round temperatures between 20 and 30 degrees Celsius. The country is most well known for its wildlife.
Which vaccinations you require for Tanzania depends on what you plan to do and on the places you wish to visit. Plenty of choice: a jungle tour; a safari tour in Serengeti National Park; diving near the islands of Zanzibar and Pemba; or climbing Africa’s highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro. Whatever your plan, make sure you protect yourself against the bright sun and avoid mosquito bites – mosquitoes may carry dengue or malaria.
