Visa Requirements

All Australians are required to apply for a Tourist Visa to Tanzania.

Up until September 2017, these could be obtained through the consulate in Melbourne, however they are now available on arrival at Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO).

Medication & Immunizations

In many African countries, it is a requirement to have a valid Yellow Fever immunization card, so you must obtain one prior to departure.

Immunizations can be provided by most GPs and all Travel Clinics in Australia.


  • Yellow Fever


  • Malaria

Altitude Sickness

Most people climbing Kilimanjaro experience some form of mild altitude sickness (such as headaches, lethargy, etc.).

We recommend you obtain a course of medication such as Diamox to help allieviate any issues.

Please consult a medical professional for advice on travel medications and your personal circumstances.

Travel Insurance

It is a requirement that all participants hold Travel Insurance from your medical or general insurance provider.

Check to ensure your travel insurance covers:

  • Medical evacuation
  • Luggage coverage
