The pandemic had quarantined people
all over the world for more than three months. The stay-at-home feeling
has overwhelmed us so much that we, including the introverts, want to
get out and breathe in the fresh air. Now that most countries have
permitted traveling, people have begun planning their trips and creating
their itineraries. The safaris of Tanzania are counted as a safe travel
destination among the few options.
The coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has understandably placed many people’s future plans on hold and caused mayhem for the travel industry.
But as things begin to look a bit more positive for the future, it is time to think about your next trip away once it is safe to do so.
We think an African safari is the perfect choice to get back to nature and explore the great outdoors.
If there is one thing that the coronavirus pandemic has taught us, it is that we should never take our freedoms and ability to travel for granted.
This blog will discuss a few reasons to go on a Tanzanian Safari after covid-19;
Private Safaris Are the Safest Vacation
Going on a private safari in Tanzania is one of the safest vacations you can take. The country has only had one of the lowest infection rates on the planet and there are not many touch points with other travelers - you arrive at the airport, are picked up by your personal guide and will spend your time primarily among nature and animals….a peaceful sanctuary! Staying in small luxury camps, the only people you will come in touch with are staff who have spent the past few weeks isolated in the wilderness (ultimate social distancing). Not only will you be away from civilization and experience a greater sense of peacefulness, your immune system will get a real boost from the fresh air, the calmness of the wilderness and the energy of Mother Nature.
Help the travel industry
Covid-19 has understandably hit the travel industry hard. Airlines, hotels, tour operators, excursion guides, and all connected businesses have suffered. This also includes the local economies of areas heavily reliant on tourism. By taking a safari after Covid-19, you can help the travel industry to get back on its feet.
Get back to nature
Being stuck indoors for a seemingly endless amount of time is not healthy for the body or the mind. Getting outdoors and back to nature will help you appreciate the world outside of your immediate bubble. Nature is something that both individuals, groups, and families can enjoy.
Connect with Pure and Unaffected Nature
Staying at home has made us realize and think about the things we take for granted in life, one of which is the nature around us. Going on a safari in Tanzania will help you deeply reconnect with nature. It will cultivate a sense of admiration and gratitude for the natural environment and the multitude of wildlife that rely on it – all in just one safari.
Contribute to Africa’s Travel Industry
It is not a hidden fact that Africa has been a target of misconceptions and generalizations by the masses through media and popular culture. COVID-19 has hit the travel industry hard and countries like Africa have suffered the most. Its airlines, hotels, tour operators, and excursion guides have been terribly affected. Choosing to visit Tanzania for your next safari visit or the first travel experience after COVID-19 would definitely help African tourism get back on its feet.
Help Wildlife Conservation
Since all wildlife conservations operate on funds and tourists' income, the animals also have suffered in this pandemic. It is a known fact for all animal enthusiasts to be aware of this issue. The complete seal on tourism during the epidemic has created financial problems resulting in hindrances in taking care of their health, safety, and food. Your wise decision to travel to Tanzania to visit its safari destinations could help wildlife conservation, ensuring healthy and vibrant spaces for animals to thrive.
Enjoy Life to its Fullest
Traveling after COVID-19 will be a thrilling experience. You and your family could get a first-hand experience of witnessing the drastic change in traveling around the world. Choosing Tanzania’s safari as your very first travel destination is an optimal choice. Spending quality time in the famous Serengeti among the indigenous people, you will surely make memories worth a lifetime. After days of being trapped in your house, the game drives and the hot air balloon rides over the wildebeest covered plains will be nothing short of an epic.
Experience Absolute Freedom
Imagine wandering through the vast plains of Serengeti or admiring the gigantic Mount Kilimanjaro from your jeep, observing the animals' abundant and raw lifestyle from a distance, or just merely enjoying the vibrant sunsets sipping over a glass of mimosa. Sounds divine, doesn’t it? Traveling to Tanzania for its safari can make you feel alive and at peace while experiencing a sense of true freedom.
Travel sustainably and with purpose
If there’s one key takeaway from the COVID-19 pandemic, it's that now more than ever, we must live more meaningfully. This means being more conscious about our actions and how they impact the world around us. Staying home has meant that all over the world cities are recording cleaner air and water. Mother Earth is healing and it’s up to us to keep it that way. When you travel with us, you will arrive as visitors and leave custodians of the wild!
We have also come to realize how important human connection is and how imperative it is to support and respect each other. When we visit other countries, we want to be mindful of our impact not only on nature but on the communities we visit.
How to travel safely to Tanzania in
With coronavirus travel restrictions easing, Tanzania has opened its borders and is welcoming tourists again. So, you can go on safari in Tanzania again!
Tanzania’s vast open spaces and small safari camps make it an ideal destination for those seeking out remote, crowd-free travel experiences. With careful planning and adherence to protocols, it is possible to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and experience Tanzania at its best.
Why at its best? Because Tanzania safaris will be cheaper and the most iconic destinations will be far less crowded than usual.
When you arrive in Tanzania you should know that while no mandatory quarantine period is currently in place, procedures such as temperature and health checks are now mandatory, social distancing is in effect and everyone is required to wear masks in designated places.
We believe these rules are a good thing as there is significant evidence from the World Health Organisation (WHO) that these precautions reduce the risk of infection:
- Maintaining social distancing.
- Washing your hands regularly and thoroughly.
- Wearing face masks.
Luckily, none of these safety measures will detract from the incredible experience of going on safari in Tanzania. Whether you are on safari in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, experiencing the exhilaration of the annual Wildebeest Migration in the Serengeti National Park or relaxing on the white-sand beaches of Zanzibar – you are sure to have an idyllic experience.
