Your international flights will be booked into and out of Kilimanjaro International Airport (airport code: JRO).
Entry into Tanzania requires a passport and visa. Passports must be valid for at least 6 months beyond your stay. Visas can be obtained in advance at any Tanzanian embassy or may be purchased upon arrival at all international airports and border crossings in Tanzania. The cost is $100 for U.S. citizens and must be paid in USD cash only.
No immunizations are required to enter Tanzania, except proof of yellow fever vaccination for those travelers entering Tanzania from a country that is yellow fever endemic. We advise you consult with your primary care physician or a travel health specialist about recommended immunizations. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control website includes Tanzania-specific information.
Dry seasons are January through March and mid-June through October, although it can rain any time of year. Days will be warm with highs in the low 80s F (26-28° C). Nights are cool, particularly around the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. Even with open windows and sun shade the safari vehicle may get hot mid-day.
You will be accompanied by a trained wildlife guide and expert in Tanzania ecology, who will be with you throughout the safari portion of your trip. All of our guides are fluent in English, have many years’ experience on safari, have taken several wildlife courses, and are superior drivers. You will discuss and be briefed on each day’s plans by your guide.
We get hundreds of travelers each year who go on retreat alone. If you are traveling without a friend or partner, but prefer to share your room, we will do our best to match you with another traveler of the same gender. If for some reason, we are not able to match you with a roommate 50% of the supplement will be applied to your final invoice.
If you prefer to have your own private room (note: these are extremely limited), a single supplement will apply.
All retreats include a $1000 non-refundable / non-transferable deposit, which is required to hold your spot on the trip. If you cancel prior to June 26, 2020 we will refund your payment minus the non-refundable deposit. All payments are non-refundable & non-transferable after June 26, 2020. International Yoga must strictly adhere to its cancellation policy to offset costs incurred prior to the commencement of retreat.
